I need a better deal on Detroit parts
« on: May 10, 2011, 10:55:20 AM »
Prices have gone thru the roof lately.   My Detroit dealer is not budging on a previous quote.

I'm looking for a factory Aux Accessory Drive  part number R23518333.   Last year I was quoted $299.00  now it's $421.00   I guess I could always rebuild the unit,  but I'd have to make the tooling required to tear it apart..

I'm also looking for a Engine mount support  part number 23511743

Any advice or help would be great.

Clifford, I'm running a 450amp Niehoff alternator.  The rebuild cost has went up $100 in one year.   I can understand if the parts were imported from Germany or if they were rebuilt in Germany.

Hey Zero double check the part numbers for me. I had my ddc guy look up those #'s and he could not find them. Give me a engine model serial # and I will see what I can do for you.

Thanks

Don

Don,  I am uprating the engine specs to get the cradle 50DN setup.   The specs that I have are>> Serial number 06R0221694  with a model number 6087GK28

Clifford is correct,  I need the bracket that mounts on the side of the engine to support the 50DN craddle.  I also need the brace > 23511743.

Zero, I found the 23511743. I have to order it but can have it in a couple of weeks.

 The other one need to come from the bus co.

Hope this helps

Don
