Ensures consistent temperatures across all cylinders
Prevents damaging coolant pressure build up
Complete kit comes with braided hose and AN O-ring fittings to ensure a leak-free installation.
Increased Coolant Flow, Decreased Coolant Temperatures The rear cylinders on the 5.9 Cummins suffer from a lack of coolant flow, and therefore, experience the highest coolant temperatures. This can cause excessive pressure to build in the cooling system, especially the rear of the block and blow out freeze plugs externally, or the smaller diameter plugs under the valve cover, leading to a failure. Fleece's coolant bypass kit adds a secondary thermostat, that unlike other brands, works based on temperature instead of excessive pressure. This solves the problem before pressure becomes an issue by ensuring consistent temperatures across all six cylinders.
