    what would be the normal cost of parts to overhaul a 6NZ C15 Caterpillar ?

    approximate parts prices would be a useful reference , Im looking at a used truck in New Zealand with one , and I think when it comes time to rebuild that it may cost less to source the parts in the USA or perhaps remove and ship the whole engine to the USA to have the work done .

    Parts prices for reference

    Cylinder kits ( Piston , liner , rings etc )

    Conrods and bearings

    Exchange Cylinder head

    Exchange injectors

    Gasket set

    Cam bushes and followers

    oil pump


    I have not had much experience with C15's , but there seems to be alot of information around on them ....


    thanks

    labor is usually around $3600, but this all can be worked with
