Cummins 6BTA5.9 professionally rebuilt, higher end components than OEM, new camshafts for more power, and better fuel efficiency.. Balanced, Magnafluxed (Blueprinted)! This is definitely not your average Cummins 5.9 anymore!

There is something special about when a client takes their newly powered boat out, running it up and having this huge smile, and saying:

“This is the fastest this boat has ever gone!”

Complete Amsoil treatment throughout – Amsoil Assembly lube, Amsoil break-in lubrication. Amsoil Signature Series Max-Duty 15w-40 Diesel oil, and Amsoil Filters, to give these engines the best of the best! Even the Coolant is Amsoil’s amazing Low-Toxicity, Bio-degradable coolant with specs even the US Military uses!

Twin Cummins 6BTA5.9’s lifted out for rebuilding after the interior, galley, and seating was removed to gain access.

Staging – removal of the engine from the ‘hole’, where the ‘hole’ was shorter and narrower than the engine! Some items removed from the engine, and with some very careful lifting with our specialized Gantry for jobs like this, one engine was staged to the center to the door, and readied for the crane to make that final lift out through the door, as seen behind the engine.

Crane arrived, setup, and then attached to the staged engine, and ‘threaded the needle‘ through the doorway without any damage, or issue.

After the 1st engine was out, then the 2nd engine was lifted out of it’s hole with the Gantry, and moved over to the center of the doorway again – staging it for the crane and lift out.

A lot of thought, and planning went into this to ensure a smooth process, without any issues or collateral damage. A thank you goes out to Vic City Crane, as a good crane operator is imperative to this project. A thank you to Anderson Precision Engines, as they will be ensuring a professional rebuild at their machine shop.

The Cummins 6BTA5.9 engines do not have replaceable liners like their bigger cousins, so a proper engine rebuild requires services from a professional engine machine shop where the engines are dissembled, measured, and then machined to specifications ensuring a reliable and bullet-proof rebuild.

Once the engines are rebuilt, they will be run up on a dyno for the break-in, as well as to ensure the engines are running at 100% before going back into the ‘hole’. The other benefit to running the engines on the dyno – the team will tweak the engines for maximum fuel efficiency!

Next will be the removal of the engines – stay tuned!!
