Geno's Garage Truck Accessories

Date:   Mar 27, 1998

Models: 1998 (BR/BE)    Ram Truck    with Cummins 24 valve engine (ISB)

Note: This information applies to diesel engine applications.

Discussion:

With the introduction of the Cummins 24 valve electronically injected engine, a new VP44 injection pump was also introduced. The VP44 injection pump requires finer fuel filtration due to tighter tolerances within the pump.

Whenever a fuel filter is replaced, make sure the replacement filter is p/n 04883963AB

NOTE:    DO NOT USE OLDER STYLE FILTERS ON THE 24 VALVE ENGINETHE OLDER STYLE FILTER DOES NOT FILTER TO A FINE ENOUGH LEVEL FOR THE INJECTION PUMP USED ON THE 24 VALVE ENGINE.

The new style filter(p/n 04883963AB) can be used on the 1997/98 12 valve engine applications as well.

Policy:   Information only.
