Hi , I might have made a huge mistake can a 1999 timing gear case attach to a 2002 motor and work ? I looked at them and they look identical?

Yes, they should be the exact same, both for a VP44 pump.
No they not actually. I found out the hard way the camshaft sensor location is different . I messed up big time . And I suppose the only fix is to pull the timing case?

I was wondering about cam sensor location too. I had heard that before.

You can swap the data plates, the Cummins part numbers for the "screw rivets" is 3908612.

The Cummins engine number is also stamped on the top of the block above the oil cooler.

Swapping the data plate is a bunch easier than the entire cover, sorry to tell you so late.

There is no recording on 02 Cummins either though.

The engine was being rebuilt any way . Yeah I guess I could swap the plate.
