6.0L Spare Parts

This thread is a sticky for spare parts. It is not for discussion, discussion is here:
viewtopic.php?f=39&t=10799

Or start a new thread.

Discussion of whether or not to carry spares will be removed from this thread!

That said: list spare items, size, cost and effort to install.

I'll start:
Spare Tire (on rim)- Large, carried externally, $200-400, easy.
Spare Tire (off rim)- Large, carried externally, $150-300, can be bush installed if absolutely necessary.
Serpentine Belt- Small, $50, needs long 1/2" drive socket, eash.

Not hung up on format or anything, someone can volunteer to maintain a forum list if that would suit better.

6.0L Spare Parts

I do not own a 6.0 and probably never will but from my experience owning VWs.

Unusual size sockets and wrenches that are only used for one nut or bolt.
Good pair of vice grip pliers in several sizes.
Spare injectors
Hose clamps
Several rolls of professional grade duct tape.

Re: 6.0L Spare Parts

I highly recommend these guys as a source for spares. Even if you can't carry the part with you, it is a good idea to know them, because they could be a source to send expedite your needed part via FedEx. Their prices are better than the dealer, and their stuff is better too. Lucky for me they are close, because they always have the part I need when nobody else does (including my nearby Ford dealer, who doesn't stock much diesel parts inventory).

Re: 6.0L Spare Parts

My second recommendation is BELL Turbo. They are one of the only independent Garret Turbo certified shops in the country. They won't touch your rig, but if you send them a bad 6.0 turbo, they will rebuild it better than new, including making some alternation what will prevent stiction problems in the future. They do turbos, and that's it so they don't even have a website. In fact, they don't want one because they can't take any more business without expanding (they have dozens of pallets of turbos stacked outside because they are out of space). But a rebuild will cost half of a Ford reman, and will last you longer. And if want some crazy quad-compound-turbo so you can make 2,000 horsepower, they can do that too.

Re: 6.0L Spare Parts

The below are based on taking the van internationally.

Pre-trip maintenance/modifications
BulletProof oil cooler
BuletProof EGR cooler or EGR cooler delete
fresh batteries
aux fuel filtration system
fresh extended life coolant
coolant filtration system
replace serpentine belt
add transmission cooler
replace ball joints (depending how many miles on existing vehicle)

Take along on trip
factory Ford service manual (vehicle specific)
AutoEnginuity system (if traveling with a laptop) http://www.autoenginuity.com/products/o ... -ei01.html
serpentine belt
FICM
fuel filters
air filters
tire plug kit
u-joints
front hubs
enough oil for oil changes ? (that's a lot of oil to carry)
fuel additive (though if non ultra low sulfur diesel exists where you're traveling, this may not be needed)

Re: 6.0L Spare Parts

There is so many parts you could carry. And not enough room to carry them all. It is a good idea to carry spare filters, since they are hard to find. Oil is available everywhere, I even found synthetic in the Yukon and in Nova Scotia.

I think the AutoEnginuity troubleshooting software and a credit card might be the best things. The really hard parts is diagnosing a problem. The AE takes care of that. Then FedEx or UPS can get parts to you in a couple of days, so a good tool kit it needed for installation of the new parts.

Re: 6.0L Spare Parts

Glad to find this listing, especially the suggestions from BroncoHauler! I stopped at a Ford Dealership in Half Moon Bay, CA a few weeks ago on my way north to Alaska to buy a spare serpentine belt. As he brushed the dust off of the belt and handed it to me, the Ford parts guy asked, "anything else that I can get for you?" I told him that I was headed up the Alcan to Alaska and asked if there were any other parts the he would recommend that I carry to keep from getting stranded? He rolled his eyes up as he said, "with a 6.0 L Diesel, the list would be endless!"
