Is this 8.3 mechanical or electronic?
I'm interested in a particular 1997 bus with an 8.3, and this is "by long distance". Around 1997... Cummins changed from mechanical to electronic engine clontrol. The engine model number should tell me, but it is not readable. But the CPL is, and it is 2103.
So the question is: Does the CPL tell us for certain whether it is mechanical or electronic?
How about the engine serial number?
I have been all over the interweb for a couple hours, without finding truly certain information.
I do have strong indication that it is mechanical -- a 6C8.3, and that's from Cummins Quick Serve Online. Pretty sure an electronic engine would have an E at the end of that designation.
Also, I see 2103 engines as new as 1998 for sale with the comment "mechanical".
How can I find out for sure?
