Adapter plate bolts

I was looking in FAQ and could not find. Do I have to go to Cummins for the adapter plate bolts or are they standard grade 8's? I know the torque spec of 101 ft lbs. Thank you.

There are a lot of 6bt's here with the Bosch A-pump. Its basicallly used as an Industrial type engine though a few trucks use it also. All in all, a very noisey pump, as all inlines are, with the max factory rating at [email protected] in the 6bt, coz the ones that make the higher ratings have the Ve till about 210hp, after which the P-inline takes over.........

They are the same people as www.shipanengine.com that showed up in this thread:

http://www.4btswaps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4874

They came in and faked a positive review of the company and got banned from the site for their trouble. I also found with a quick bit o' Google where they had done the same thing on other sites, and even used the same user name!

Personally, I won't do business with folks that do that. And, from the last post in the thread BobS linked, they turned out to be about what was expected: Cheap and flakey.

The Densno # here crossed over to a rebuilt AC Delco

ACD # 336-1623
GM # 19135477

Starter part number cross reference information for folks using Dodge Cummins engines, adapter plates, flywheel housings and etc:

1994-2002
Cummins 3921682
Denso 228000-2290
Lester 17548

Lester is generally the standard interchange reference number between various manufacturers. Cummins part numbers are generally the most expensive and are subject to frequent change. Denso is the OEM in most cases.
