Hello, I had someone adjust the valves on my 1995 diesel truck about 2 months ago and my gaskets are leaking now and very badly. I had this job done in Canada when my wife and I were visiting friends. Its about 200 miles up there. They say they put new gaskets in. I removed two of the gaskets and they are made of rubber and you can tell by all the oil under the gasket that they were leaking. Now, I would like to put new gaskets on but what are the best ones to put on? Can anybody help. :help:

I would check by your nearest Cummins or Freightliner dealer and use genuine Cummins gaskets.
Wipe down the mating surfaces with clean rags and do a final swipe with a rag dipped in lacquer thinner then install your gaskets

I took the gaskets of the cover today to get a better look at them. There were two that had a 1/2 inch cracks in them. There were two others that were leaking but I could not find any cracks in them. I changed 4 with OEM gaskets from Dodge and they seam fine now. It was just weird that they would put new gaskets on and only in about 2 months they were bad. Unless they charged me for new gaskets and did not put new ones on.
Well, anyway thank you for the help.

If they're pretty expensive, you can send them back to Canada and ask for replacements then turn in the replacements for reimbursment where you bought new ones.

I'm going to send the bad ones back to the person who worked on my truck and see if he will give me my money back I had to spend for new gaskets. We will see what kind of a business person he is.

Good, we'll see if he's hot soup or cold taters.
