1998.5-2002 Dodge 5.9L 24 Valve Cummins Diesel Overhaul Rebuild Kit
Aftermarket items are by high quality brands such as Interstate Mcbee, Clevite, or Mahle depending on availability at the time of purchase.
Those requiring a THICKER head gasket: Cummins, nor any aftermarket companies, offer a thicker gasket. The ONLY solution we are aware of is to purchase a 10 over or 20 over thickness 12 VALVE gasket and modify the coolant passages to match, and using one of those. This is a pretty simple process, we just recommend you have a stock 24 Valve gasket handy to overlay the 12 valve gasket to adjust the holes as necessary.
It Is Not Recommended To Reuse Headbolts.
