Ford Tech Help Please: Top 10 Engine Parts to stock for "6.0 Fleet Support Shop??"

I do not mean Aftermarket parts like ARP Studs, or EGR Delete or bypass, or normal service parts like Radiator hoses, surpentine belt, filters, and such...

I mean actual FORD engine parts and sensors and controls... Reason? Australia is a bit remote in unstable times for the Big Three... No Dealer support... So we are thinking of our own back up program....

So what to have on the shelf?

#1) Would have to be Head Gaskets set
And then what? Examples (no necessarily the ones)
#2) VGT Solenoid?
#3) CPS
#4) FICM or ECM? what about those..
#5) Turbo?
6) Fuel pump? High pressure,
7) Water Pump?
8) Low pressure fuel delivery pump (by main filter under chassis)
9) Turbo Boots?
Temperature sensors in engine or tranny? Main gasket set?

In the top ten to carry in stock, what would you Techies say is the most common in that top ten used in your Ford Shop...?

We want to start some Fleet Service support here, have a few of them running......

Scotty, would be thinking of a Delete kit of some sort if we had a problem with that... Or block off the up pipe exhaust part, and weld the EGR shut... Then it is only coolant going through and much less odds of a problem..

I am looking for other main engine parts, sensors, or ECU components, the 10 or so most common. The EGR system we would not replace if it goes bad...
It is a bad idea from the Greenies anyway...

injectors and the copper washers that go in the heads before the injector is put in place wouldnt be a bad thing to keep in stock no real need to stock the turbos or the VGT solenoids they can usally be clean to resolve any problems with them

Hello Pitamarillo84,
You mean a couple of spare injectors, or a whole set of 8? Thank you for your comments in looking for the top 10... I am thinking maybe HPOP too?
And what about the low pressure diesel pump inside the chassis rail..?

Best Regards from Australia

Well what do you suggest?
HPOP,
What fittings?
And the pump with the large fuel filter, the delivery pump?

I will have to price all this stuff up when I get a list of the top 10...

Just to be clear - the 6.0L only has one fuel pump. The high fuel pressure in the injectors is achieved using the oil from the HPOP and an "intensifier" piston. The fuel pump is part of the frame rail mounted HFCM. Also - the camshaft position sensor is called a CMP and not a CPS IIRC.

Well thank you Mark, long time no see, hope you are well...

So is the fuel pump something we should have on the list of the top 10 parts to stock for the 6.0 Fleet? And the CMP ?

Nice to hear from you, Cheers from Australia

Things are going good here, but hectic around the holidays! Who knows if things are even stable here w/ the big 3

I liked your post - I figured I wasn't telling you anything new, but I thought that some newbie readers might not know.

I have been thinking about doing some research on the most common 6.0 part failures and then I read your post - it is pretty much the same thing.

I would think that the ICP and harness would be a good thing - not real sure about the CMP, but I have seen a few replacements discussed (one post on another forum talked about the CMP replacement being bad right out of the box).

The IPR and EBP might be good things to have also.

I have been reading recently about quite a few FICM failures. A bit expensive, but maybe a good thing to have.

For the 2005 and up year models, I would get the HPOP STC fitting replacement part also. Not sure about actual HPOP failures, there have been some posted, but not a bunch.

The water pump impellor seems to be a weak link - I read somewhere that the impellor is plastic and it can separate from the shaft.

Oil coolers are a very common failure component - not sure of the cost.

I haven't seen too many failures of the HFCM discussed (except a false signal on the "water in the fuel" light).

I will do some more research - hopefully others will jump in on this. The list would probably be a little different for 2003-2004 vs 2005-2007 year models.

Take care LR!
