CUMMINS DIESEL NT855-G2

GTS RETROFIT OF OLD STYLE AMBAC GOVERNOR


TYPE: ACTUATOR AGD130E4 GOVERNOR CU 673C-23
WITH GAC ACTUATOR TYPE:ADB120E4-NL and
GOVERNOR CONTROL BOX ESD5500E

The Cummins engine type NT855-G2 was produced some years ago using the AMBAC all electronic
governor which controlled the engine speed by regulating the low pressure fuel delivery to the injectors, the fuel
was delivered from the low pressure fuel delivery pump.
This speed regulation required the control of fuel by a small valve which position which was controlled from a
spring return actuator. This type of control was used before the inception of the EFC integrated actuator inside the
fuel pump.
AMBAC actuator part No: AGD130-E4 and integrated valve is not produced any more and can be replaced using
a GAC actuator and integrated low pressure fuel valve type: ADB120E4-NL.
Similarly, the old style AMBAC electronic governor controller part No: CU673C-023 is no longer made and is
replaced with a GAC all electronic controller type ESD 5500E. This controller has the ability to set a start fuel and
reduce smoke on starting.

Cummins Retrofit:
The Cummins engine used the AMBAC governing equipment as standard and all piping from the fuel pump, the
injector delivery and overspill, was copper tubing with swaged ends for swaged union couplings.
Today the swaged unions are hard to come by and all new fittings are NPT with conventional pipe cone fittings.
The existing fuel delivery pipe from the low pressure pump is utilised and the existing swaged union fitting
removed from the AMBAC actuator and re-installed into the valve intake of the GAC actuator.

The fuel delivery pipe with the old right angle fitting removed
and re-installed into the new GAC actuator fuel inlet.
The overflow excess fuel pipe fitting is also removed from the
old AMBAC actuator and re-installed into the new GAC fuel
valve overflow exit.
This again is a swaged cone connection and great care is
taken in removing this fitting. Sometimes the pipe has to be
shortened and a pipe coupling is used for this extension.

The fuel delivery fitting has to be changed to a newer NPT stainless type and this has a right angle extension.
The piping from the rear of the actuator is a flexible pipe which is then connected to a shorter reduced section
to the original swaged cone pipe.

TO REPLACE OLD STYLE AMBAC GOVERNOR
TYPE: ACTUATOR AGD130E4 GOVERNOR CU 673C-23
WITH GAC ACTUATOR TYPE:ADB120E4-NL and

The existing overflow pipe
is used using the old
swaged cone fittings and
the connection is made to
the non return valve fitted
in a block with the fuel
delivery flange.
The fuel delivery flexible
pipe is fitted behind the
actuator and is connected
to the existing swaged
flange pipe fitting.

The positioning of the GAC actuator is slightly different to the old AMBAC and so a new base plate is required to
allow the same position for the fuel intake pipe fitting and overspill return.
The 6 pin right angle electrical connection to the actuator is the same as the old unit but care must be taken to
make sure that the internal soldered connections are acceptable for the new service life of the governing system.
All NPT and coned connections must be tightened and made secure before the engine is started and tested
under load.
The old governor AMBAC controller is replaced and a new GAC control box installed. It is always recommended
to install the correct speed pickup wiring and also the actuator wiring to the new GAC controller.
It is recommended that a new speed pickup be installed with new cable and connections to the GAC controller.

from the engine.

The new GAC actuator that


replaces the removed
AMBAC unit

Governor Technical Solutions will remove the old AMBAC governor, install and commission a new GAC all electric
governor and actuator onto an older design Cummins engine including all piping and fittings.
A speed pickup change will also be made with new cabling to the actuator with right angle actuator 6 pin plug.

The old AMBAC controller is removed and


changed for a new GAC controller with fuel/
smoke limit adjustment. The new controller
is fully compatible with the latest generator
power controls from Deep Sea or Comap.
The new GAC control box has similar screw
connections for ease of installation.
