104 Views and not one comment? Has anyone else even heard of CST? Does anyone else, besides me, have any of the training manuals?
During that timeframe I was working on Leyland, Gardner, AEC, BMC, Deutz, Perkins with the odd White and Ford gas jobs. I didn't start working on Cummins until I bought a truck to go OTR in the mid 90's. What is odd about that is I wasn't in England or down under, but in Chicago!
Forgot about M.A.N. propane engines as well!

yep down here in Australia we had CST.

I didn't reply to your original post because I had already left Cummins & started my own business by the time Oz got it and

from what my ex-Cummins colleagues told me down here it was pretty hit and miss in its application.....

no doubt in Nth America it would have been full on......in the far outposts of the Cummins empire it was not pushed as hard maybe?

PS....and we didn't get the offer of a factory tour either!!!!!

I never new about Cummins CST.
I do have most if not all of the Familiarization Manuals. I purchased these when the company came out with a new engine or new system. With these you learn the operating principal of the system.

Mike------Congratulations on your score that took you to Jamestown............or was it Columbus, Indiana . I assume it was based on something similar to Detroit's Guild . Inever heard of CST and I lived on these forums too much since about 2005.

In the 70s, 80s and 90s Cummins had a program called CST "Cummins Society of Technicians". They printed what they called "formalization manuals" that you studied, were tested on, and the top score from each distributorship got a trip to the engine company factory. Any other winners? I was in the '79 '80 group. The formalization manuals were some of the best product books Cummins ever printed.
