Yes, diesels need a load. Cummins are infamous for blowby, normal, so my mechanic says.

If you lost oil pressure, the worst damage would be to the main or crank bearings. It sounds like you dodged that bullet if it is still running.

Running at wot or rated power will reveal any issues but that advice got me slammed before on here so I didn't say it, don't wish to go there again. What is your rating? M1 or? Run at your rating and see what happens.
