Michael..am i right in thinking this is the updated case..by updated i mean post KDP problem i have heard of SOME but not many people having KDP issues through 01 and i beleive i have even heard of a few 02 trucks having KDP syndrome (i have an 01 and have been procrastinating looking into fixing mine, i think i'll break down this week end and fix 'er up) i think everyone with a 2nd gen cummins has to worry about this. correct me if im wrong, but dodge tried to fix this problem by side punching the pin or pressing it in a little tighter or something, but never actually took the time to put in a viable means of retaining the dowel pin like a set screw or even a tack weld should work well.....? regardless, nice post, thanks for the pics!!:thumb1:

okay....wait a second here, i havent really looked in depth to the fixes they have on the market for the KDP, but i have read up on the damage that can result from this thing.i have read about the pin falling out and grinding through the case, this would be steel pin vs. pot metal aluminum case scenario. the second, pin falls behind the case, moving through the inner working parts of the engine tearing its way through rendering it completely unsalvagable, this would be the "oh crap, im screwed" scenario....looking at the pictures below, this solution would only keep the pin from falling foward into the gear case side of things.....what about the engine?!?!? am i missing something here? did they put a taper at the rear of the hole for the pin?

the second, pin falls behind the case, moving through the inner working parts of the engine tearing its way through rendering it completely unsalvagable, this would be the "oh crap, im screwed" scenario....looking at the pictures below, this solution would only keep the pin from falling foward into the gear case side of things.....what about the engine?!?!? am i missing something here? did they put a taper at the rear of the hole for the pin? Auh......never herd that one....where did you get this information??:stuned: the hole for the dowpin is counter-bored into the engine block itself....what usually happens is the pin falls down onto cam gear, rides on it till it wedges between the case & cam gear..resulting in busting the Timing Gear Case...in more extreme case's I've herd of where the pin will then fall in between the crank and cam gear causing the engine to "jump time". and sometimes resulting in bent or burnt valves, busted pistons, damage to the Head ..and can cause debris to go thru turbo and wipe it out:spend::spend:

:doh: I did my month inspection and found my front crank seal is starting to leak and I'm down about a pint of oil since my oil change. The bottom of the oil pan is wet in behind the belt pulley and the face of the pan there... Then back at the cross member that goes under the pan is wet... :ahhh: Ok Burks... I'm going to be done front seal off your write up... I need to gather up the parts and get some better weather for working. Just way to cold to work in the shop.

How do the third gen trucks compare to the second gen? Would this write up more or less be the same? I'm thinking this is in my very near future as I'm seeing one to three drips of oil on the floor every week or so. If it's not one thing it's another :spend: :broke:Don

From what i have seen, removing the front end body parts may be a little different but not much... basicly once you get back to the Engine, it all the same as in My Article:smart:
