FWIW, I sent a sample to Blackstone and was told to run it up to 13,000 mi. I was using Rotella T6 Synthetic 5W/40.

The Cummins starts easily in mild TN winters but the 84 & 84 Mercedes 617 with mechanical injection pumps need synthetic to spin fast enough.

Here's the Blackstone verbiage.

We didn't run a TBN on the oil, but if you're wondering what that would be, then we can go back
and do the test for you. That being said, with results as good as these, it's plain to see that this long oil run
was a piece of cake for your ISB. In fact, you could even go longer on the next fill. Our averages for this
type of engine show typical wear after just 6,900 miles of oil use, so these equal (or better) readings after
11,000 miles are quite impressive. No contamination or other issues were found. Check back in 13,000
miles. Iron may go up a little bit, but that's fine.

Does anyone run a bypass oil filter on their engine? Can't seem to see anyplace to put one. Using a return line thru the oil cap seemed like an easy way to return it. OH, where to mount it. Baldwin has a spin on fuel filter that cleans down to 2 microns and is acceptable for oil. For about 25 bucks you can get the mount for the filter and then hoses are more. The filter has a restricted outlet so as to not bleed off all the oil pressure. Seems simple enuf. What am I missing? Still collecting ideas for changes, so any advice that you learned the hard way would be appreciated. JH

I have been told that a small pipe plug on top of the oil filter adaptor can be used as a supply for the secondary filtration systems. I have not verified this.....I use good oil and filters and change them as recommended. Mopar and Fleetguard are the two I have used exclusively.

The AMSOIL BMK-34 oil filtration system for the Dodge Cummins I believe comes with everything needed. I had mine mounted the passenger side firewall lip with a bracket I made out of aluminum and bolted it the metal lip on the firewall. The AMSOIL bypass filter is good for every other full flow oil filter change up to 60,000 miles. The AMSOIL full flow oil filter is good for 25,000 miles /1 yr. Plus AMSOIL Signature Series Diesel Oils are a 25,000 mile / 1 yr drain interval. Any questions feel free to ask.
