Wanted: Cummins NVH head gaskets


Last Subscription Date
We are working on restoring a 1952 Cummins NVHIS-1486 and are struggling to find head gaskets. Looking for part #s 20586, or 106608, or 139798. Those are all the same part, the larger #s are supersessions of the previous #.

If anyone has, or knows someone who has four of these lying around, we would be very interested and grateful.

And here are some of the gallant crew at Cummins bore-scoping the aforementioned NVHIS-1486 at the Historical Restoration Center to determining its internal condition a few months back. This is one monster 12-cylinder engine!
