All engines wear out eventually. Though MarineDiesel builds engines that are built to a long service life, eventually, parts and components will need to be replaced. This is why the availability of spare parts is critical.
In general, there are three categories of spares with MarineDiesel engines:
Since MarineDiesel uses General Motors engine blocks, there is some parts compatability on internal components, like crankshafts, pistons, and engine blocks. (The 6.6 L is compatible with the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, and the 6.5 L is used on some Humvee versions / models).
On external components, items are manufactured by MarineDiesel specifically for our engines. This includes the ECU, heat exchangers, turbochargers, lifters, injectors (The entire fuel system, for that matter).
Consumable parts include oil filters, fuel filters, engine oil, belts, and some seals and gaskets. These are sometimes manufactured by us, or we use high quality vendor brands, such as Racor®.
Regardless of the type of spare, we maintain inventory of all engine components in stock, and we guarantee spares availability for the future.
Our MarineDiesel Genuine Spare Parts program ensures that you receive the highest quality spares for your engine, manufactured specifically for that engine. By keeping regular scheduled maintenance and using genuine spare parts, your engine will continue to provide you with years of reliable service and performance.
Additionally, for major projects, we put together spares packages for customers to keep in inventory, specifically for their engines. This can be critical, since nobody wants their vessel to be out of service due to a clogged filter or broken belt.
