Truck engine maker Detroit Diesel Corp. is offering a new overhaul service designed to make it easier for fleet managers and owner-operators to choose the right Series 60 engine revitalization program for their operating needs and budget.
Called the StepUp program, it offers four levels of overhauls to help extend the life of a Series 60, depending on length of ownership of the engine and its application, said Jeff Wallis, DDC’s gm of parts sales and marketing. Customers should be more confident that their trucks will be returned to service faster, he said, since the StepUp offering groups critical components into pre-set “packages” so less time is spent at the service outlet searching for and ordering and installing individual parts.
“We’ve specifically designed this program to be flexible enough to accommodate the needs of customers depending on where they are in their engine’s lifecycle,” added Wallis.
For truck owners with lower mileage, fewer problems, or looking for the value package, a Step 1 is a great start, he said. The program builds from there, adding a cylinder head and rocker arm assembly in a Step 2, a complete injector change-out, water pump and turbocharger for a Step 3, and a remanufactured swing engine for Step 4, Wallis said.
“Also, every part used in these overhauls is either new or completely remanufactured – not just spot-repaired,” he noted. “We also offer a variety of warranty packages for these overhauled engines.”
