Save money and the aggravation of being stuck on the side of the road with emergency spares to avoid emergency road service. In this post I have compiled a list of Truck Driver Spare Parts to avoid being stuck on the side of the road – self rescue.
Here is a list of hard to find part numbers for my 1998 International 9400 Cummins N14 engine.
I have all of this stuff written down in old fashioned notebooks however whenever I need to find something it takes forever. I figured I would post them up here in one spot and it would help you too.

Must have Cummins N14 spare parts
Here are a few parts that I wish I has carried with me from the beginning. It sucks being stranded and at the mercy of emergency road service. Even if you cant fix the problem your self you save a ton of money by on labor for a parts run and on the parts markup as well.
You’ll save at least $200 each time one of these parts fails if you have them in your side box ready to go. You’ll also be able to self rescue if you breakdown at a shipper or on the side of the road.
These are my top 4 spare parts every N14 owner – driver must have. I have broken down due to all four of these parts failing.
- Cummins Fuel Shutoff Solenoid Kit
- Bendix D 2 Air Governor
- AD 9 Purge Valve
- Spare turbo boot clamp 4 or 4 1/2 inches diameter- double check for your application
Other emergency spares
- Silicone emergency rescue tape
- Spare belts and hoses for your truck
- I carry full set of belts and some hoses
Tools to carry for roadside repairs and small truck stop fixes
Electrical wire strippers and crimps
Dot Required Spares and emergency equipment
When you are inspected roadside or at a scale house you’d better have the following items if the officer asks to see them. It’s a violation to NOT have these three things in your truck.
Spare fuses – every type of fuse your truck takes
Fire extinguisher – working needle must me in the green

AD9 Air Dryer Part Number 065647
I’ve had the wrong parts installed a few times by professional shops’ mechanics.
If your truck is having these problems after changing the air dryer you might have the wrong part number installed
- pushing too much oil
- excessive air purging
- turbo boost loss
AD9 air dryer drop in for cummins N14 with the Holset air compressor
Here is a nice pdf guide showing air dryers that are compatible with the QE and E Type air compressors on Cummins N14 engines.
Video Explaining the special air dryer with makeup line and check valve needed with Cummins engines
It also shows the two correct ways your air lines should be hooked up depending on if you have a compatible air dryer or a work around installing a non comparable air dryer.
065647 is the part number for the special “compatible” AD9 Air Dryer.
I had two shops install the non compatible standard AD9 on my truck.
In their defense the air lines were similar to the schematic show in the guide I linked to above but it was not exact so I purchased the correct part number 065647 and removed the jury rigged fittings and hoses. I’ll keep those fittings and hoses as spares in case I get in a pinch and can’t get the right dryer with the make up hose factory installed.
