Cummins ISX11.9 CM2250 – Service Manual 011-043   Aftertreatment Adapter Pipe

Preparatory Steps

TOC

 WARNING 

Do not remove the pressure cap from a hot engine. Wait until the coolant temperature is below 50°C [120°F] before removing the pressure cap. Heated coolant spray or steam can cause personal injury.
 WARNING 

Coolant is toxic. Keep away from children and pets. If not reused, dispose of in accordance with local environment regulations.

NOTE: The aftertreatment fuel injector fuel and coolant lines have enough flexibility to allow for the removal of the aftertreatment adapter pipe without removing the aftertreatment fuel injector.

NOTE: If removal of the aftertreatment fuel injector is needed, determine the appropriate radiator or coolant expansion tank cap adapter for the vehicle being serviced. A list of available caps and applications can be found in Section 14 of the Service Products Catalog, Bulletin 3377710.

Use a vacuum pump type device on the cooling system. Install the adapter on the radiator or coolant expansion tank. Connect an automotive hand held vacuum pump and apply 3 in Hg [40 in H2O] of vacuum.

NOTE: Depending on the cooling system configuration, more vacuum may be required to keep the cooling system in balance.

Place a container under the aftertreatment fuel injector. There may be a small quantity of coolant that drains from the coolant lines when disconnected.
