    Hi,

    I am a newbie at the Heavy Equipment Forums.
    The forums have been very informative and helpful.

    I am going to buy a D8K and going to overhaul it. the overhaul would depend on the machine's condition. I need help about engine, transmission, final drives and undercarriage.

    I know that FP Diesel have the best replacement parts for engines, but are there any cheaper Chinese companies which i can go for that have the same durability? Also cheaper companies for transmission and final drives.

    As Berco has best undercarriage, i have once used dry link assy and plates on one of my D8K and know they are very durable. But what about ITR and ITM?, or if any other is better then these two?

    And last but not least, What to look for when buying a D8K?

    If there any forums that have already discussed these topics, please guide me to them. The search on this website is quite tricky.

    Thank you.

    Please do not make duplicate posts around the forums, it only further complicates the search process. I'm closing this thread as you've received a reply on the other posting of it.
