1998 Cheifton 5.9 cummins. Need help for Idler pulley please..
« on: October 10, 2018, 09:16:48 AM »
My bearing and pulley went out on my 1998 Cheifton 34' with a 5.9 Cummins motor.

the pulley is the idler that goes from the fan, to the Motor mounted A/C compressor.  Any idea where to find a replacement? or a part #

THanks!

The chassis builder installed that part, so a call to Freightliner 24/7 Customer Service line should get some help. Plus you can buy parts direct from Freightliner if that stock that one.  Have the last 6 digits of the VIN handy and call 1-800-FTL-HELP

There are many sources for such parts, including Ebay & Amazon, but you need to identify the specific part first.  If there is a part number of art manufacturer name on the idler, that might be sufficient. If not, call Freightliner.  Or maybe a Freightliner dealer could help, but be aware they are independent franchises and often not well versed in the motorhome chassis (they are truck dealers, first and foremost).

 You can also take the old part to a NAPA store and match it up .>>>Dan
