The cummins aftercooler service, which is not the heat exchanger service, is quite important. It should be done every season. IF you decide to do your own, be very carefull. Also be sure to pressure test that after cooler after you reassemble. If you pinch an O ring or otherwise get a leak, you will be mixing salt water with the engine combustion air. That gets real ugly really quickly. My boatyard was a Cumins service enter and I had Cummins trained technicians.
