Where to buy bus clutch online?

I have a 1990 International 3800 and need a clutch kit for a Spicer ES42-5D. But I don't wanna go through AutoZone or O'Reilly's or anything like that because it's going to be muck more expensive that ordering it though some sort of online retailer. Problem is, I'm having a hell of a hard time finding what I need.

What online resources do you use to get bus parts?

Spicer's web site should have the part # for their oem clutch kit. Then search the interweb for the part # an online retailer will have the oem kit or an after market kit.

I tried navigating Spicer's website, but could not find any way to get a part number for the clutch. Maybe I'm just failing right now, but I couldn't find it. I found a way to get parts numbers for driveshafts and heavy Axel's, but not the damn clutch lol.

I did not think that this would be so difficult

Go to your local International dealer with the VIN# .they should be able to get you a part #.

Well all the International dealers are closed. I found one clutch kit from Sachs finally that works, but everywhere is out of stock or over 800$. Is there a way to cross reference the Sachs model number (K70323-01), with other manufacturers and find another kit that works and is maybe a little cheaper. I don't wanna get shitty parts though, either.

Opinions? Options?
Thanks for all the help so far

Trying to find parts will definitely be easier on a weekday. Tomorrow should you should have an easier time of it.

The price you quoted, it doesn't seem outrageous. It's been a couple of years since I had a clutch replaced in my truck but I am sure that the parts cost me over$1000. I am thinking that it was closer to $1200.

I had to get a clutch for a Peterbilt once. It was *WAY* less than $800; closer to 300 as I recall. Got it through Napa as I recall. You will *NEED* a truck parts Napa (for some reason they have different parts catalogs and most of the folks there will be well versed in what you will need).


Also, keep in mind these clutches often can be adjusted for wear, so don't think just because it's starting to slip it's automatically shot, see if it has any adjustment left first.

I found this. Correct model number, but their fitment chard has a small dodge and two small keeps. Is it the right part?

Ended up finding it the cheapest through the international distributor themselves. Duh, I guess. That's what I get for trying to overthink something.

It was about ~350, and with both tie rods, a rear main seal and cross shaft bushings came out to ~590, including shipping.
