oil & fuel filters, need help

Well, this is my first post here, a lot of good info on this forum. I am buying a 1994 fleetwood pace arrow 36 1/2 ft coach with the 8.3l cummins diesel, it's three hours away and been sitting for awhile, I would like to service the engine before I bring it home, I do not have the vin or fin, so the local napa nor lazydays can give me the part numbers for the engine oil, fuel and air filters. And also the oil capacity on the engine . Can anyone help me out with these?

Also, it has the cummins 3 cyl diesel gen, need the oill filter for that to, and fuel filter if its seperate from the 8.3l .

thanks, Scott

Hi Scott,
Welcome to iRV2. Call Cummins at 800-343-7357. They should know if there is only one choice. If there is only one choice, you are good to go. They will also know the oil capacity of the engine. As to the air filter, the chassis manufacturer would know this.

Consider leaving the generator alone until you get home and have time to get all the information you need.

It might be easier to get the VIN ! Once You get to where the RV is located take it to the nearest Cummins or Freightliner Service Center to have the Oil and Filters changed. You may also want to change the Coolant and It's Filter as well.

Be sure you get a bank line of credit before going in for the services. At $100 or more per hour it will add up fast.

scottinfla, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. There are so many varieties and some identical engines may have difference oil pans, depending on how they may have been ordered by the chassis or coach manufacturer.
My 2000 ('99) Spartan w/ Cummins ISC takes 22 qts of oil with filter. I have used NAPA 1748, Baldwin B103 and FleetGuard oil filters. The one you are looking to buy could be different.
I would recommend you also consider changing all the other filters and possibly coolant too unless seller can show you where it has been done in the last year or two. Look closely at the serpentine belt. IF it is cracking, you should at least buy a replacement to have with you if it breaks.
I just went through all of my maintenance and spent $275 on filters, $60 on oil and $40 on 50/50 coolant. Took about 7 hours labor to change everything and lubricate the chassis and top off hydraulic reservoirs. BTW I changed the air filter dryer for the air system too.

Thanks everyone, I am a real good mechanic, so my coach will not be seeing any dealers for work needed, I will try cummins to see if they can help, but will probly end up having to wait till I can get the #'s off the filters on the coach. There is nothing within about 30 miles of where it sits now, so was just trying to save a trip to get the stuff I need. Luckly, all the books and manuals and records are with the coach, so I should be good to go once I get there, thanks and I am sure yall will be hearing from me, thanks, Scott
