How To Use Catalogs Correctly

Commonly, when need to buy some parts for replacement, you need a catalog to look up parts numbers.   For example, you have a HW19710 gearbox to repair, and you have a catalog of HW19710 in hand. In this catalog, the part number of the main shaft is WG2203040009, so you inform your supplier of this number, and wait for its delivery?

Catalogs
  • No, unfortunately, it’s not the way to buy SINOTRUK parts by using catalog.
  • Reason: unlike those developed brands of models, like VOLVO, MAN, and IVECO, the products of SINOTRUK are still evolving. Engines, gearboxes, and suspension mostly, have been improved in these years. So, an HW19710 gearbox of 2013 may be different from it of 2012, and also maybe different from another HW19710 of 2013. Yes, the same year, and the same model, have differences inside.  
  • And catalog, will not show these differences. Usually, there is one set of catalogs for one model and never be modified along with improvement of this model. So, catalogs are not accurate, and mostly 80% accurate. 
  •  Luckily, all authorized dealers of SINOTRUK parts in China have the access to SINOTRUK database, so all problems could be solved.

Workshop staff need to know catalogs

You have to be sure that the numbers from nameplate is right, this is important to make others right. See below:

Separate different trucks with different slides or even documents if necessary, but the accurate chassis numbers
would be definite necessary.

The catalog will be also useful to you. Because for each model of engine, gearbox, cabin, and axle, 80% of parts will be the same regardless of improvement.  
However, we believe a mixed method that includes catalog, your experience, and parts numbers provided by your customers, would be the best way.
