I will have to vote with Terry on this one...I needed filters for our generators, Napa had one of the three I needed, the rest were not available, but could be special ordered....and that was in what I consider to be a fairly decent sized metro area

NAPA is like any other store, it is only as good as its parts salesmen. The ones here are very good with cars, not so good with light trucks, and if you need a MoHo part, well...

Have you ever tried Fleet Pride? I'n Louisville we're lucky enough to have a lot of Heavy/Light Duty truck maintenance facilities around given the logisitics nature of our fair city. When I start striking out at NAPA (and others) for Chassis Parts Fleet Pride or one of our local truck parts stores always has what I need - and thats on a P30 gasser. I would think the FSR parts would be in stock all of the time.

I have a 1983 310 with the chevy 454, unfortunately part of one of the spark plugs ended up in the piston and destroyed my engine with only 70k miles on it.
I am looking at switching over to a Diesel engine, is there a cummings I can use? anyone else convert one of these oldies?
thanks
