How do I search for a part?
Click on 'Browse Parts' in the menu bar, enter your criteria and click on Search.
If you get too many results then modify your search criteria.
Can I restrict the search geographically?
Yes you can. You can specify a specific country.
If you are searching for a small and inexpensive engine you would probably only consider ones near to you. If, however, you are searching for specific make/model of a large engine you will probably consider one wherever it happens to be in the world. TOP
I am looking for a specific make/model of diesel engine?
Click on 'Browse Engines', select the make from the drop down list, enter either part or all of the model number and click 'Search'.
For example, selecting Make = 'Caterpillar' and Model = '34' would find all 'Caterpillar' engines with '34' entered anywhere in the model number. 3412 and 3412 DITTA. This facility will allow you see all variations of a particular engine.
To further restrict the search enter the number of cylinders or condition. TOP
I have found the engine/part I want. Who do I contact?
For further information about an engine or part listed on www.DieselEngineTrader.com you need to contact the seller directly.
There is a form on the engine/part details page to allow you to contact the sellers by email. Alternatively give them a call.
What does it cost to search for an engine?
Absolutely nothing! There is no charge for searching for engines or parts, you don't even need to log in or register to search.

How do I advertize an engine or a part?

will be asked for some basic information about you or your organization to make it easy for buyers to contact you.

Can I advertize new as well as remanufactured engines?
DieselEngineTrader has six separate categories of engines:
- Reconditioned INCLUDES Rebuilt, Reconditioned and Overhauled engines
- Runner - Engine is in running order
- Repairable - Engine is broken down but is repairable (crankcase is not damaged)
- Core/Good For Parts - Engine is broken down, is not repairable and is being broken for spares
- Remanufactured - Engine has been taken apart, cleaned, repaired, and then reassembled.
If you are listing an engine, you have to specify what condition it is in from the above list. Any additional information (e.g. crankshaft is 2nd undersize) can be entered in the comments box.
If you are searching for an engine you can specify what condition you require or you can select all conditions (default). TOP
Do I have to put in a selling price?
No you do not although it will help your chance of finding a buyer if you do.
Selling price example:
US$4,000 or nearest offer
How will potential customers get in touch with me?
When a Buyer is searching for an engine or spare part and they come across yours, they will see the contact details you entered when you first registered as a Seller (your phone number, EMail address etc.).
They can either give you a call, send you an email of complete the 'Contact the Seller' form and we will send you an email. TOP
Can a buyer see all the engines I have listed?
Yes. When a Buyer is viewing one of your engines, they can click to view all your other engines TOP
I listed an engine and then when I searched it wasn't there?
It is possible that you entered a search parameter incorrectly or that you made a mistake when you were listing your engine.
Try searching for the engine by Listing ID number (this takes priority over all other search parameters). This should get your engine up and you can then
look at it and find out what you entered.
Alternatively, go back in to the seller screen, and find your engine on your list and see what you entered there.
If you are still having a problem, then please contact us with details and we will endeavour to advise further. TOP
