Technical: Isuzu 42 Servicing Info
Posted by indigodream on 8 January, 2013
This is my reference page for the parts I regularly need for servicing the engine and also somewhere for me to store copies of the engine manuals etc. For filters etc I like going to Allpartszone in Croydon, very helpful, excellent service, competitive pricing and very good at looking up obscure references Update: They are now closing, arghhh need to update this page. Their advice is to use Mahle filters as they think they are better quality so my shopping list for the next service with Allparts references and cost in January 2013 is:
Air Filter: Isuzu Part No. 100066-4LS OEM References: FRA CA5315 or Cooper AG 294 – Allparts Reference: CA5315 – £5.01 – 1 No. Update: 10th July 2013: This is proving a bit of a pain as Fram / Coopers have stopped making them. An equivalent seems to be a Reisse 46100020.
Supplementary Fuel Filter: FRA C1191PL – Allparts Ref KX23 – cost £3.54 – 2 No.
Main Fuel Filter: The manual say Isuzu Part No. 897172-5491. Last time my engine was serviced it was by the excellent Neil Coventry he put in an Isuzu 5876100220 so I suspect that the part number has changed. Finding an OEM equivalent is interesting.
Main Fuel Filter OEM References:either Baldwin BF954 or Donaldson P553240 or Fleetguard FF5030, Filtron PP944 or Mahle KC5. Note these are all a fraction longer then the Isuzu part so slightly more awkward to remove with my style of filter wrench. Allparts Reference: KC5 – Cost £4.24 – 1 No.
This site cross references the Isuzu 8971725491 with an Isuzu 8941329471 and that in turns leads to a Fleetguard FF5394 which is shorter, same length as the Isuzu so I have ordered one, look out for us anchoring somewhere. Update: The FF5394 looks like exactly like the Isuzu filter.
Oil Filter Isuzu Part No. 894456-7412 OEM References: FRA PH6811 – Allparts Reference OC205 (or OP617 if not available, OC205 is the Mahle reference) – Cost £3.10 – 1 No.
Comma 20W50 CC Engine Oil: £12.48 for 5 litres – 1 No.
Costs last time I looked in a Chandlers but note for Isuzu parts not OEM: Air Filter £9.66, C1191 Filter £3.50, Main Fuel Filter: £16.32, Oil Filter £9.30, Engine Oil £26.50. January Allparts costs recorded as I think the first two filters have gone up in price but still amazingly competitive when compared to Isuzu parts from a chandlery. Mind you not all chandleries are the same – did not note down prices but I think Kings Lock in Middlewich had pretty competitive prices for Isuzu branded spare parts (and they are nice people).
My last shop from inline filters in April 2016 had these prices:
|2 ea.||FFR-CA5315 FILTER-Air(Round)||£8.66 (£4.33 each)|
|1 ea.||FDE-HDF296 FILTER-Fuel(Can Type)||£3.53|
|1 ea.||FBW-B1425 FILTER-Lube(Spin On)||£7.12|
|1 ea.||FFG-FF5394 FILTER-Brand Specific(Fleetguard)||£5.00|
