None of ours use a 5.9 Cummins, so maybe try the Dodge forums in their diesel section. There should be the info you need. Glass blowing sounds interesting btw.

We had the little brother to the 5.9 in our step van, a Cummins 4BT. Never really had to do anything with that engine but replace an idler pulley. Great engines and lots of reliability.

That engine put Dodge trucks back on the map.

     What vehicle are you running that in, Dan?  Is yours the "C 8.3" or an ISC?

 In 1998 the "C" became a 24 valve ISC electronic....I have the last of the "C" 12 valve engines nested in an American Tradition that gives me great power,,reliability,, and 10 miles to the gallon..  The ISC gets about 7.5 with the same load and has frequent sensor issues... >>>Dan
