IPD Parts has produced new engine repair parts kits for select Cummins ISX engine applications, each with the “closed skirt” design EGR piston.
The new piston design is being offered in an IPD piston repair kit, a cylinder repair kit, and an in-frame repair kit. Features include a reduced diameter top land that helps reduce oil consumption, and also minimizes liner polishing due to carbon packing, the company said. This top land specification allows any carbon that forms to flake off instead of forming a bridge between the piston and liner.
“IPD is aware of a growing need in the market for cost effective, high performance ISX service replacement alternatives, specifically for closed skirt EGR piston applications,” said Steve Scott, director of product development and technical support at IPD. “These new kits further expand our popular Cummins line of high quality service replacement components.”
