Thumbs up Cummins 8.3 Engine Serial Number Location

Woody (or anyone else),

You wouldn't happen to know where the engine serial number is on a 8.3 would you? Need to find it on our 94 Safari pusher and figured I'd ask before I start looking in the wrong places. Valve adjustment and a few other odds and end coming up.

TIA

I agree with Woody that the easiest to see should be on the timing cover on the top edge right side, by the injector pump. It specifies the valve adjustment on there as well.

A little FYI. I had a wiring harness that was covering up my engine data plate.

As it's a pusher that'll put it in there backwards so.. at least I know where to look. Ac compressor is over the area on the front (rear in a pusher) of the engine so I'll check the other location first, thanks for the pointers.

Today the Safari goes in to get a 32" WS HDTV mounted at the local Car Stereo shop... Valve adjustment etc.. late next week or so...

Thanks again.

Those of us who posted the location of the data tag all have pushers as well. Looking in from the back see the timing cover with the pulleys on it. Look at top of the cover, on the right side. As Brad indicated, you may have to lift or shift a wiring harness. You'll need a rag to wipe the grunge of the tag, and a flashlight helps read it.

Or am I mis-reading and yours is puller with the cummins in the front?

for those with bmc call spartan and give them the last six digits of your vin number and will tell you all about your coach including motor number,filters shocks, springs, things, cruise, electrical stuff, recalls, no calls, on calls,
a little levity there

very little

in short everything you could possibly want to know about your chassis and probably somethings you don't want to know

Thanks guys. No way to see the number from the back as on this coach the engine is too far in there, took laying out across the opening with the bed/engine cover (nearly climbing onto the engine itself) to finally get to where I could see it. Thanks, parts being ordered tomorrow for the valve adjustment and injection pump 'tweeking' for just a little more power.

Be sure and have them tune it with the PRE TURBO egt and boost GAUGES

NEVER OVER 1250-1300 EGT

It was 250 factory (was either that or a 300 hp version that year), the prev owner did a 6 plate which is supposedly around 60hp more, we're just going to adjust with that in place. Doug's done a number of Cummins mods and knows his stuff. If we decide to go to a bigger plate then we'll definitely be adding EGT and Boost gauges. Likely do them anyway as dad feels lost not having them like they were in the 96 5.9L we just sold.

So what are you pushing in the Bertha conversion now Woody? What mods have you done to get more power and would you do any of it differently if you were to do it again?
