Detroit Diesel Service

Question is, where do those of you that hav a DD engine go for service. Nou that DD has been "sold" to Daimler (MB) I am not aware who services these motors. Further , Allison was also spun off from DD. I do know the Big MB engine is all apart of DD these days, but , where are they serviced?

i do my own dd's when they need it. depending on which one you have parts can be hard to find or a little expensive, but they are still a great engine.

Isn't a dt466 a standard international engine? We have a couple at work and the parts are easy at the international dealer.

exactly what he said. a dt466 is int. not Detroit. Should be no problem walking into any int. or navistar dealer, and probably have them in stock.

I don't know my manual calls it a Detroit series 40. From what I read it's a international engine with detroit electronics

You are correct. This engine was developed By IH mostly for off road/farm tractors, and fire trucks. There is a lot of discussion as to the similar features to the Detroit series 40 engine.. They are different , not the same , but some parts are interchangeable. The controversy continues. .

I am sure that engine has preformed well in vocational vehicles. There must also be a reason it's not recommended for over the road distance trucks. One plus it's a wet sleeve block.

Well I went to my local International dealer and I was able to get what I need. It will be here on Tuesday. It's actually turns out its a International 530. When I researched this engine the wet sleeve was a big plus. We got 9.8 mpg from florida to Connecticut running the dash air 90% of the time. Not to sure why there aren't so many of them in rvs. They made them for like 25 years now.
I Guess once Detroit puts on the electronic package the name changes.

Interesting that my CC Concept has a series 60 Detroit and it's a 1997. It does surprise me that CC did not use the series60 on your coach. Gillig delivered these chassis running to CC ready to build , all of them . You may have a rare install using an IH tractor engine. Sounds like you are doing very well getting that MPG., that's great!

Another thing comes to mind that might offer why these chassis were equipped the way your was. Gillig's main business was city buses and school buses . I remember seeing many International Harvester cut a way chassis,with the Gillig frame I guess. They also built the largest school bus ever made , it would carry over 100 kids.
