The world is pretty big. You can see lots of new places without ever stepping foot in the USA.

Any of you other "techs" out there finding it increasingly difficult to get the correct parts and or undamaged parts? Im at the end of my rope with this. In the past month ive gotten 2 bum cat liners and injector harness. A whole cummins kit with apr liners but non apr pistons-with a damaged anti polish ring, a junk pyrometer and a bum boost gauge. All inside of 1 month. Im only 1 person in my own little shop. How is any high volume shop or dealer cope with this chit.....

I used to think it was part of the territory, and filed it under **** happens.
It has become increasingly apparent that the robots in quality control are thinking on their own and conspiring against us.

If you just order junk parts to start with like TRP or Alliance you come to expect them to be junk. Itís like a nice surprise when they work. TRP stands for Tomorrowís Replaced Part.

As far as Cummins, you know their parts are chit when even they donít want cores back. Going to start building fences with Cummins camís.

Question is, are they ordering the right part and the parts not showing up the right part number?

Cummins recon is a joke, at this point for hard parts I donít see why there arenít more heading for IPD for their pistons and liners.

No way the insurance company is going to believe the truck is on its side and the dump is upright. Lol
