Some CUMMINS Engines Service Manuals PDF are above the page.


History of Cummins Inc. began February 3, 1919, when a brilliant self-taught mechanic from the state of Indiana Clessi Laila Cummins, and businessman and politician William Glanton Irwin founded the Cummins Engine Company.


Clessy Cummins still in his homeland was engaged in the improvement of the engine invented by Rudolf Diesel, and achieved certain success. Moving to Columbus, and having acquired a supporter of ideas and a partner in the person of William Irwin, Clessy with a new force took up the design of diesel engines.


The first sample was produced by Cummins Engine Company in 1919 under a license purchased from the Dutch Hvid. The engine was 4-stroke and had a power of 6 horsepower, this did not stop to use it as a generator for electricity generation.


However, the company was still weak in order to survive in the market. To strengthen it, Clessy Cummins invites all of the same Hvid one of the leading engineers - Knudsen. Soon there is a new model from this tandem: the engine with a distributive clutch in the form of a wheel.


In the beginning, Cummins decides to sell engines through the popular "Thermoil" magazine, popular at that time among the farmers. The peculiarity of sales was that the buyer could return the engine after the season, and get back 50% of its value!


Due to the fact that the Cummins engines proved particularly viable (they could be operated for several years without major repairs), they gained popularity as the most hardy.


In 1929, Cummins Corporation began to produce ship engines and diesel generators. After a short time Cummins deploys an advertising company and actively promotes the installation of diesel engines in cars.


The time of the Great Depression of 1929 did not shake the company so much, thanks to the same resourcefulness of Clessy Cummins. He installed a diesel Cummins on a Paccard limousine, and at Christmas 1929 invited a hired Paccard to his investor, William Irwin. They say that after this trip Irwin was ready to invest any of Cummins's most fantastic ideas.


In 1931, Indianapolis hosted the "survival" race, where the Cummins engines showed unprecedented results and left the rivals far behind. Cummins achieved the victory in the races in Daytona Beach and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In which were set several records of speed and economy among cars with a diesel engine during rallies. Thanks to the participation of races, the company has gained enough popularity. The press widely discusses the future of diesel engines, which creates an excellent advertisement for Cummins. However, the company needed a serial model, which would become the basis and the backbone of production. Such a model in 1933 becomes Model H. This was the first powerful engine for trucks from the company Cummins. It can be said that the "real Cummins" began with him.


In 1934, the reins of the company go to the great-grandson of Irwin's banker - Irvin Miller, who has been managing the Cummins corporation for several decades as CEO. With him, the expected prosperity of the corporation is due to the excellent products and extensive network of service centers. The financial situation of the corporation improved during the Second World War. Thanks to the excellent "reputation" of Cummins diesel engines, the corporation has concluded several lucrative contracts for the production and supply of diesel engines for the US Army and Navy. Cummins engines operated in any climatic conditions, from the tropics to the Arctic. With the opening of the second front, the engines were delivered to Europe and Russia.
