Built-In Parts Book
Progress in industry comes at a rapid pace. In order for the engine manufacturer to keep pace with
progress he needs a versatile product for the many models and arrangements of accessories and
mounting parts needed to suit a variety of equipment. In addition, engine refinements and improvements
are constantly being introduced. All of this dynamic action must be documented so that the equipment
can be serviced if and when it's needed. It is fully documented in the manufacturer's plant and in dealer
Parts Departments with Master Files and adequate supporting records. But, what about YOU the user of
this equipment? You have neither the time nor the inclination to ferret out specific part number data.
What is the answer? It is Detroit Diesel's exclusive BUILTIN PARTS BOOK which is furnished with each
engine. It takes the form of an "Option Plate" mounted on the rocker cover of the engine. With it,
ordering parts becomes as simple as A, B, C. You have merely to provide the Dealer with ...
A. The "Model" numb er
B. The "UNIT" number
C. The "TYPE" number
From that much information, the dealer with his complete records on all engine models, can completely
interpret your parts requirements.
