2006 cummins overhaul starting on pics....

Alright so i bought a 2006 cummins 6spd mega cab. The guy had the oil changed and the company forgot to tighten the oil filter. long in short it ended up spinning #6 connecting rod bearing and scoring up the cylinder. Also has engine oil in the intercooler tubes.

My question is what should i do while im rebuilding this thing? Moneys kinda a factor and i wanna keep it reliable.

Thanks alot,
Tyler

I would have them put a motor in it for you. since it's there fault the motor blow up. I work at a shop and when someone forgets to put oil in the car or leaves a drain plug loose or filter they pay for it to be replaced.

Yeah i ended up buying the pickup from the insurance company. They would have put a motor back in it with the same amount of miles but instead the guy just took the insurance money and walked away.

I think your best bet is just to buy a used motor with low miles and swap it in.

It might be ceaper to put a used low mileage one if from a salvage. They do alot of motor work on that show trucks, and it seems like gasser's run $2k and up to rebuild nicely. I can only imagine what a cummins would cost. Plus if you buy a used one you still have yours for salvageable parts.
