does anyone know anything about a balancing shaft being in the cummins engines. someone told me that they thought they heard about balancing shaft gears breaking teeth off or something like that. or does this not have to do with our cummins.opcorn:
Perhaps who told you this was thinking of the tone ring on the crankshaft of the 24v engines. That is what is used for the crank sensor to read of the 24v's. Some of them are know to break and the engine has to be pulled to fix it.
Other than that the balancer is the only other thing on the crank or cam.
it sounds like he must have heard it about something else. i will let him know. thanks guys. if the tone ring breaks ,i assume the engine will not run? what if it just cracks. and is it near the back of the engine.
