Things on my mind…
Hello all, 2012 CM2250 866K 500hp factory. I know I am getting close to needing an inframe and would like to start pre-ordering parts because of the terrible availability as of late.

My question is: with the CPL as a guide, what can be ordered before tearing the motor down and what cannot? I would like to have everything at my house and ready to do the inframe, but it may be up to a year or so before I start tear down.

Also, is there anyone that could help with a parts list provided the CPL #? Maybe Mr. Hagg? I would be happy to compensate them for their time. And maybe even order the parts through them if they could be shipped to Oklahoma.

Thanks. JMBT

My advice...

Don't bother!.

#1 reason. You have no idea, nor anyone else on the planet can tell you what overhaul kit goes in it until the head comes off of it. Nor will you know until then what other internals will actually need replacing at that point.


#2 reason. By the time you put those parts in, there will be zero warranty on them and if there is any manufacturing flaws at all, you s$it out of luck!. That is too much of a risk for expensive components.

it is a complete waste of money to order the internals and/or the head for an ISX until you have had it apart and know exactly what you need .. and what exact parts it requires, as it is a complete crap-shoot as to what liners, bottom end bearings, etc. are in there until you tear into it.

if you are going to inframe yourself, ordering special tools and the like are a better investment.

Thanks Rawze. I am just worried about tearing down and not being able to get the parts. Have you heard anything recently on availability of parts? Heads and such? Are people able to get what they need?

I have been regularly asking Mr. Hags shop about any recent parts availability issues. They say that it is not unusual to have to sometimes track down certain things that are in high demand, a little more-so than normal, but they have had no big issues beyond a few extra days of delays due to this on the majority of stuffs for the most part.

Rawze: Thank you for the info. That sounds a lot more promising then what I had imagined.
