gale banks engineering.
what can i say.these guys supply spectacular service.both times i called them up to order missing parts for my used turbo kits,they were very helpful,prompt and precise with aiding me with part numbers,price and they shipped out whatever i needed.i felt like they provided me with the class a service they would have,if i ordered a brand new turbo from them.i know their turbo units on a whole is pricey but it feels very,very good knowing if i need a nut,bolt,washer,seal,gasket,o-ring,bracket,etc.etc they're right there a phone call away to help me keep my commercial trucks running.iv got to share my experiences with these guys too.super,excellent,fast service.

No one mentioned Justin @ R&D IDI Performance? Dude is awesome and his products are even better. He worked with me on a great set of injectors and a pump. I'd recommend him to anyone with an IDI

for electric parts, such as switches, sensors, senders, stay away from Wells or Autozone parts. Used to work there. Just a poor parts manufacturer. I've had good luck with BWD parts though


Motorcraft Glow plugs I've found are cheap when bought online (discount code) and picked up in store when bought from advance auto parts.


Battery Terminals- GenuineDealz.com is good for marine grade stuff, like a small mom and pop shop, free shipping too.


CARQUEST or Napa for battery cables.


Never had any issues with my K&N, I'll second FORDF250HDXLT.


Airtex seems to make a decent electric fuel pump.


I use TSC Traveller (aka Warren Lubriguard) in my IDI, it does better than rotella.


Motorcraft or Wix Oil Filters


High end fram, Purolator or Oreillys store brand (wix) oil filters for my remote transmission filter.


Rock-auto and standard motor products for the pre-made 2/0 positive battery cable they sell for these trucks. Decent quality, good fitment, cheaper than making an equivalent one.


Green Gates XL belts, From CARQUEST and Oreillys (Napa may carry that line too, never checked).

6.9 idi

I wanted to thank you for your quick reply, I'm throwing quite a bit of money in this old truck. it's not as old as it seems, it's never seen a snowflake came from San Jose California it has a hundred and five thousand miles on it. I'm doing a frame off restoration, adding the banks turbo rebuilding the engine and installing a Doug Nash overdrive. the truck is back together will only run for 5 minutes at a time. I just watched a YouTube on how to put a new solenoid in the injection pump I'm hoping that's the problem. if not I have the ejection pump off the donor truck I got the turbo on. any thoughts? your help is greatly appreciated. Ron

Which of these parts do you own and run on your own trucks? Just curious because you are so gracious and fond of them.

I know it's not truck parts... But I've bought several times from E-Trailer.com
They have always given me the right parts, they came in quick, and most everything I've bought had free shipping.
I've bought several sets of electric brake assemblies, a couple receiver hitches, many different sets of wheel bearings and seals, chrome lug nuts, etc...
Quality has always been really good too.
I'd highly recommend them.
