Hey all,Let me first say thanks to Mopar himself for having such extensive knowledge and devotion to the cummins engine amongst other things. Hello to everyone else and I will and do appreciate you answering and humoring all the many questions your going to answer for me. I am a member of the cumminsforum also and avidly read on both sites in efforts to learn as much as I can. Mike was kind enough to chat with me for over an hour on the phone a few weeks back to help me with some VP44 issues. His trusted judgement cost me nearly a grand to replace my VP but the truck fired right back up, and for that I thank him again.:thumbup2: I just received a billet mechanical fuel pump for DTT and I am anxious to get it installed and get the fuel pressure up where it needs to be. Looking forward to chatting with everyone and hopefully gaining some valuable knowledge along the way.

Let me start here then. I had been looking for awhile at different pumps trying to decide what would suit my needs and still be affordable. The more I read the more I dreaded purchasing an electronic pump. Seemed like I read almost as many bad outcomes of pump failure, wiring failure, repeated fuse issues, etc as I did good instances. It got me to thinking about finding a mechanical pump that didnt require any one these things to function. My search led me to the Assassin mechanical pump from DTT. It was designed by Stefan, built to his spec VIA CNC Billet material. The pump itself mounts under the front of the oil pan using two of the front bolts. It utilizes a belt driven gear to provide increasing Pressure to the IP as rpms go up as opposed to the opposite affect from most/all electrical pumps. Idle PSI should be around 14-15 and using the regulator for adjustment, go up and hold around 19-20 psi as the rpms increase.The kit can be purchased with or without the necessary fittings/lines/etc. or bought as a whole. I chose to buy the complete kit. It comes with 3/8 ID lines, all the needed anodized an fittings, which I think are a -6AN. The pump uses a small billet crank attachment for the belt to attach to. The pump requires very little tension to function and only has two seals to fail, which can be replaced in about two minutes from what I was told by Stefan. I am sure there is more info that you want and I will attempt to provide it. Hopefully I will get this installed later today when I get back up and see how it does.I believe Glacier has a similar set up and maybe one other company.

Well, I got about half way through the install today, had to locate a couple of things (male to male connector and some diesel proof thread sealer). that put a hindrance on the completion. Not to mention that I was attempting to do this in my driveway. Stefan left out one connector in the parts bag and I was unable to locate one before all the viable stores closed. Hopefully I will get it all finished out tomorrow day.

Your giving me way too much credit there CSM... :ashamed: You claim I'm a wizard with these trucks... Maybe in your eyes but I'm just a lowly Cummins owner just like everyone else here. I don't have any certification in diesel engines. Its just that with all my conversation with hundreds if not thousands of people I've learned a few tricks. But in all reality it the family member here that have the brains. You guys and gals that have fought to the bitter end to solve problems and share your answers with the family here are the ones that are wizards. So all you take a bow because it's this crazy little family that pulls it together and figures out how to solve those problems! :thankyou:

I'm just glad to be a part of it all and meet good and knowledgable people along the way. The internet is full of BS and sometimes its hard to siphon through it. Websites like this make it much easier and make the trials less of a pain to deal with. I had an academy instructor tell me once "Pain shared is pain divided, Joy shared is joy multiplied" Thats stuck with me and I think it applies for most every aspect of life, especially working on vehicles!
