Post ONLY IF You have Info Or "Work Arounds" On Discontinued Parts/Sources
Here is the "Sub-Forum" we asked for.
I would like to personally and publicly thank Robin and the "team" for helping make this happen.
FWIW I have assured TDR that this forum would not be misused. .
By that I mean it will not turn into a covert advertising forum.
The TDR rules apply in here, with a couple extra conditions. . . .
First, PLEASE ,, use this forum for the listing of discontinued, "no longer available, dealer doesn't have them anymore parts". For example, if you have found a source for parts or repair material because of your need (or another 1st genner's problem then you post that here. If you post here simply for the purpose of asking a question without a corresponding solution/supplier/souce, the post will be moved.
If you find a source for replacement OEM or equivalents it should go in here. The idea is to keep this forum solely related to parts and components that are hard/impossible to find from the maker or DC or Cummins. .
If anyone uses it for advertising/vendor promo's, the post will be deleted immediately and if repeat problems occur, then other measures will apply.
This will include 'warnings', 'strikes', 'suspensions', or the cancellation of the entire sub-fourm.
I promised Robin and the TDR, that we would do this right, and keep the language clean, I have faith in you to keep me out of hot water.
If you'd also like to offer members the option to contact you directly about your parts post, say so at the end of post, that way new members will not hesitate to PM or email you since some are naturaly a bit shy when the first start.
If you have a "custom fix" for a discontinued part you could also refer to that as a solution until a source is found for your particular part/issue.
I did my part here, try to do yours and this will become a great 1st Gen resource that no other site is doing.
I'm also working on getting some of this type of info from reliable sources too.
Remember, keep your stick on the ice. . . .
edit: if you have tried a mod that resulted in catastrophic failure to a discontinued part/component you might include that info and, of course, were you found the replacement, the # etc.
This will serve two purposes, first it should warn off the one's paying attention, and second it'll provide the solution for the one's who aren't
