Where are all the parts

Unread postby shawnigan.smith » Tue Jun 08, 2021 12:56 am

I'm a new owner of a turbo diesel. i hear and see horror stories about the engine reliability, and I just want to make this thing as good as can be before a big summer trip. I can only find one site for parts, and its mostly just gaskets and belts.

I would like to build a stockpile. anyone on here have bearings, turbos, plugs or anything else?

im all ears. ive scoured this forum, but looking for more up to date info.

Ah, this can be a "fun adventure" if you're not ready for it.

For me, I start with Google Searches, and have had some luck with that. http://WinnebagoPart.com is another place to check. Not the cheapest but they often have parts you can't find elsewhere. Find the phone number for the "Renault" questions.

The Renault J8S engine was also used by Jeep in the Cherokee around 1986. Get your gaskets, water pump, etc from there. The turbo was a bit smaller so I don't know about exhaust manfold, and the like around there.

Believe it or not EBay can have parts you need.

Also, search this site! I found this post of a lot of other places too look.

Thanks for the swift reply! I have been searching everywhere. I think what I really am asking for now is parts numbers. I'll eventually swap it, but for now just general maintenance. I will check out the diesel jeep stuff.

So the glow plugs, belts and gaskets would all be the same? If so this is perfect.
