Key Specifications

The C8.3 is built to last, with a cast-iron unitized block with fewer parts than traditional diesel designs, fewer joints and simplified maintenance. This block has been structurally Cummins Compressor Engine 6C8.3reinforced to resist bending and torsion, eliminating 1 dBA of noise output.

Heavy-duty features include:

  • Heavy-duty pistons with Ni-Resist inserts for longer life
  • Mid-stop cylinder liners that reduce cavitation and improve rebuildability
  • Plateau honing on the cylinder liners for near-perfect cylinder geometry, virtually eliminating    oil consumption
  • A robust Holset HX40 wastegated turbo with excellent low-end torque
  • An in-line fuel pump that delivers higher injection pressures for cleaner combustion, more    power and flexible fueling
  • A helical gear train that operates smoother and quieter
  • A proven design with millions of C Series engines in service everywhere around the world
