    Springtime Fitting Out - Parts Suppliers, Oil on sale, etc.

    Time to do the annual "kibbles and bits" replacements on our 330 Cummins, trannies, and genset. Any suggestions on a reliable, low-cost parts supplier (on line is fine)? Any insights on oil on sale here in the Pac NW? We've got a great mechanic (Adair James) and he likes it when I source parts (let's me save some bucks). I'll be buying pencil zincs, impellers, belts, filters, etc. - normal wear and tear stuff - in prep for a long cruising season. I'm planning 7-10 days in Barkley Sound fishing and also 3-6 weeks north around Desolation and Quadra (cruising and fishing) so time to get everything checked out and spares re-acquired. I'll have serial numbers when I place orders. I figured others might also benefit from $$ saving insights at this time of year. TIA.

    Find someone with a Fisheries Supply commercial account that will let you order parts, or see if you can set up an account. Fisheries lets commercial account holders order for resale or not for resale (taxed). Moreover, if the account holder is on their regular truck route, the items are delivered the next day for free.

        Delo 400 at Costco, I get my filters from Fleet Filters. https://www.fleetfilter.com/. FF has NAPA, Baldwin, Fram and a bunch of other brands. Best prices I could find for my Hinos.

          Has anyone run across a comprehensive “shopping list” for all the above supplies based on specific boats? I’m not sure how to search for it, but my boat is identical to the OP’s other than ‘99 model year. It’d sure be handy to know all the filters, zincs, belts, etc before pulling the old ones out.

            I might as well create a list for the BOC since I need to do it anyway. Don’t hold your breath, I’ve got until mid April which is the soonest Adair could get us scheduled!

              Amazon for fleetguard filters, LFS for Racor and zinc. Ebay for ZF filters.
