I'm pretty sure Bob has spent more time watching transfer machines than any other regular poster here, probably by orders of magnitude.
I have never seen a line a Cummins and do not have the prints so I can not speak to pallets, clamping or datums.
I may have seen a few in other places.
Sometimes the locators on a pallet get bad or chips plus other possible problems in the first steps get in which leads to off kilter blocks all the way down so I agree that checking that main bore should be done as a safety.

No one has mentioned the other big issue with engine work....you get a bloc/head/crank that another shop has worked on and its a complete bodge..........Good example of mine is the guy down the lane from me had zero machines,yet was doing cheap block and head work,and crank grinds with one of the hand held hook grinders.
