CP3 Mounting Studs Gone -- Need Help

While driving the truck it started gushing fuel. After inspection we discovered the three nuts and studs that hold cp3 pump on had disappeared. The studs did not shear off, or if they did the whole stud must have worked itself out.

I guess my question is -- how did this happen? And most of all where do I find replacement studs?

What was leaking fuel? Did a line break or something?

Thats pretty odd never seen a stud come loose let alone all 3.

Another member not to long ago had this problem also. He actually caught them coming loose, tightened them and then checked a short time later and one or two of them were gone.

I cant remember what he did to fix the problem or where he found the studs, sorry. But it does happen.

I would think if you found out the size of the hole in the front cover you could substitute bolts with a dab of locktite on them. If not, I'll bet any good Cummins shop sells the studs/nuts. Just take them your engine serial number and they should be able to get them. If ALL else fails, new front gear housing.

Due to the Cp3 shifting, the line leaked at fitting.

I've searched everywhere for replacement studs and so far nothing. Not sure just yet if the studs are threaded or pressed or molded into the gear housing. Will know today.

That's crazy!! Was it the stock pump? I guess it's just something else to look at when the truck gets serviced.

So is it a big secret and you can't let everyone know how to prevent it?

Could you not ask the questions in here and like I said fill all of us in? Since that is what a forum is about.
