looking for an IDM

Hi
I've posted here before about how my 97 international w Dt466e won't start again after changing the fuel filters. We finally had a mechanic come and told us it was the IDM. Our local International dealer wants $1150 for rebuilding it. I'm trying to find a replacement for less. Or am I stuck w having to go through the dealer?😕

Also, is there an IDM relay somewhere? I thought I heard someone on a youtube video mention it.

Thank you, any input is always GREATLY appreciated!🙏🏽

Assuming my Googling is correct, this might save you some money.

Got it! Thanks!
An IDM for a T444 would work on a dt466e?

is your DT-466E a "3 box" has a separate IDM? or does it have the single computer hanging off the side of the engine wit hthe 2 large connectors on it? 97 was the pivotal yeaer for switching from separate IDM's to the NAVPak single computer..



the single computer has the IDM built in and im told not easily replaceable.. the 3 box system used a separate IDM and is pretty easy to swap out..



the single Pack ECMs were gebnerally the same for T-444E and DT-466E..

However..
DONT BUY A T-444E SINGLE BOX ECM AND TRY TO START THE ENGINE WITHOUT FLASHING IT FOR YOUR 466E!!!!!


the 444E is a V8, the 466E is an I-6.. things will go bad.. you can plug it in, key on, flash it with NavKal, clear the codes and it will work..



I dont have a lot of info on parts crossing for 3 box stuff.. since it was obasoleted for the most part after the 96/97 model year it gets trickier to find info on it .. my Navistar electronic documentation seems to start with 97 and not much before that..
