Where to get parts? 1994 Allegro Bus

We recently purchased a 94 Allegro Bus, 5.9 Cummins 12 valve, MD3060 transmission. I am looking to replace coolant hoses. I went to Freightliner brick and mortar store in Houston, went to Cummins brick and mortar location in Houston and both said they cannot look up the cooling hoses. I will contact Tiffan next. I'm sure I will need parts in the future. Where are you guys getting all your parts for older units? Thanks.

I replaced most of the coolant hoses on our coach last year when I replaced my CAC. I found all of the hoses were standard hoses easily available at a NAPA store. I do notice a couple of specific hoses on the engine that I haven't replaced yet, but I would like to think that Cummins would be able to supply those.

As was said above, take the hose into a NAPA or Carquest store and they can match it up.

Did you go to a Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp (FCCC) shop? It's a separate company from Freightliner Trucks, so maybe some shops don't talk to them? The motorhome chassis is not truck chassis and often uses different parts.

You can call FCCC customer service at 1-800-FTL-HELP and they can probably give you the hose specs. Have the last 6 digits of your VIN handy. You can also order parts direct from FCCC and their prices are usually competitive.

Ok, I called Tiffin and they e-mailed me an exploded diagram of the cooling system with part numbers. A google search revealed next to nothing. I called a Freightliner dealer in another state who's website indicated they had one of the hoses and was told that my local freightliner location should be able to order them. Now that I have the part numbers of the hoses I need I can re-check my local Freightliner dealer.

As far as getting hoses from Napa, you simply bring in the hoses and they match them up? I suspect they cannot look them up. Thanks.

I think you'll find that most of the hoses can be simply replaced by inside diameter measurement (i.e.: the diameter of the pipe that the hose fits onto), and the length. In many cases, you'll probably find that a hose of superior quality than your old original hose is available.

The only time it can get tricky is if you have a molded hose with a specific turn to it or an angled end. Even then, often a hose that's close can be found to replace it. Fortunately, most of the strange shaped hoses are usually those that are part of the engine, such as from oil cooler to engine block, etc. Those hoses are usually readily available from Cummins, although they may have to be ordered in to get them.
