If you look around, there is probablly a application in other vehicles or commercial systems.

I mentioned this to the Cummins Techs once,,,, they told me that the oil pan is reversable, and that the oil sump tube was (If I recall correctly) the only differance.... the sump tube comes out of the front of the engine, in the crank case and runs via tube and pick up to the rear for our application. in the industrial application it comes out in the same location, just a differant tube,(shorter) and falls straight down for the front sump..... go talk to Cummins for the "B" series tech manuals.... the one I got for the Dodge application was a 1991 version for $20.00,,, no real updated manual has been put out cept for a small update for the 24v. which is what I was useing for my Repower application. the engine in general is the same.
