Can't help with case, but here are some instructions on how to do it with cam removal and without cam removal:

Click> http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/94...tructions.html

You can do a little searching on here and find where someone found one on the internet I believe for less than a couple of hundred dollars a year ago and posted back a day or so ago that it is still working great.

The guy who sold you that motor needs a punch square in the face.

Not possibly KDP, definitely KDP. And a bad job of hiding it.
It's hard to believe you didn't catch that while you were swapping the motor in.

You can find timing cases at Pure Diesel Power too ($289).

They also have a ton of other hard-to-find or otherwise expensive engine replacement parts.

I just finished fixing mine a couple weeks ago. Got the case and gasket for case and cover from pure diesel power. Got the valve cover gaskets from napa. And got everything else from my chrysler dealership. It took me two full days to get it down to where the case was ready to be pulled. Then I cleaned for a full day. Then it took one of my dad's friends 11 hours to get it completely running again. I had a total of $900 into it after paying him $300 in labor
Hope this helps some

Also, the chrysler dealership wanted $1600 just in labor to fix it and the case alone would have been another $600
