What parts would be smart to keep around for your TD5's?

Belts and hoses would be on the list as they would be harder to source if you need one right away.

MAF (Air flow meter.... clips onto the air box) and a crank position sensor (bolts onto the bellhousing just under the air box)

a duff MAF will cause a bit (not much) smoke and less performance.

CPS will stop the engine dead. That's the only sensor that will stop the Td5... all the rest will revert to a default setting in the ECU, so performance might be a bit down, but at least you'll get home.

Neither of the above need a nanocom/NASA computer to fit, just plug & play.

Jamie is right on - as usual. The only other bit I have in my spares box is an accelerator pedal. If it fails, the truck will idle, but you won't be able to rev.

LRseries.com is where I get my TD5 bits.

HTH.

Bear in mind there are 2 types of throttle pedal available (or "driver demand unit" as they're officially called )

there is a 2 track, and a 3 track (referring to the number of potentiometer "tracks" inside the pedal). with the aid of a nanocom etc, you can easily change in the ECU settings as to what one you have.

now i'm not 100% if an early ECU, which would have been built with a 2 track, can be switched to 3 track, but the later 3 track era ECU's can certainly be switched back to the older type of pedal.

If you plug a 3track into an ECU that's set for 2 track, or vica versa....


I dunno.... never tried it. will have a play (have one of each vehicle here)

Nah, they're pretty reliable. (OK, if you come across one/some then handy to keep spare)

Apparently they were designed along the lines of truck technology for uber mileage. One doesn't usually hear of any problems with them (although the copper washer at the tip, and the O ring that keeps the diesel out of the sump can fail... pence to buy but a little fiddly to change)

Injectors are uindividually coded. These are set in the ECU via nanocom/testbook etc. The engine will run with an incorrect code (you may not even notice) but won't be working to its full capabilities. again, minutes to alter in the ECU.

Alarm 10AS unit can go duff sometimes. they're cheap enough to keep a spare. this WILL need coding with the main ECU for the engine to start. again, takes seconds with a nanocom type thing.

Where do you purchase your td5 parts? Is there a one stop shop? Maybe a reliable parts retailer online?

If you don't mind, please pm me the sources, as well. I've got a smooth running TD5, but would like to stock a few needed parts.

Thanks

Sweet, will do. I'm going to do a little research on what I need, and I'll email you. I see you're in Orlando.
