Store near 'Naptown for diesel parts?

Specifically may be looking for glow plugs for a 5424 Univ. diesel as well as the injector nozzles and pump.
Any recommendations for a store that is not as expensive as Torreson but nearby to Annapolis, MD?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks PorFin.
The internet is also my enemy, sending me down many paths for places that do not carry parts that are compatible with Universal diesels.

Yep, been on those wild goose chases myself a time or three. I've had to force myself to call first, instead of just launching off with a purpose.

I just had my injectors rebuilt by JG Parks & Sons. They did a good job, and the folks were quite customer friendly. Their main shop is in Mardela Springs, but they've got a smaller shop in Grasonville just a couple of miles east of the bay bridge. I don't recall if they fly the Universal burgee, but they may be worth a call. 410-742-0400. If they don't stock the parts, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

Good luck.

@chrisncate
I know that you are glad you can't help. No engine - no worries, right? Thanks for the recommendation though. Be down manana pm.

@PorFin
I'm sure I'm hoping for too much since I'll only have about 1 day to work on my friends engine. I've also never "done" an injector job on a diesel before as my beast is an Atomic 4. I've got boundless optimism until daylight runs out though.
What seems most likely is a few of the glow plugs on the engine I intend to work on have glowed their last. How difficult can that be?
Most likely I'll just hand off your referral for JG Parks & Sons but I was hoping there was a good ol' store with a one eyed dog standing guard in front for all kinds o' diesel parts near Annapolis.
I'm sure I'm asking for too much.

Universal is a wet name for Kubota, try your local tractor parts dealer.

Maybe they could refer you to someone. They have s wealth of knowledge there and are friendly and helpful

Caleb if you are in the areacome to the Sailnet Rondevous Saturday night. Maybe we can talk about my upcoming LI and NE trip. Last time up BarreL and I tried to meet up on Port Jeff or Northport but he was working.

try go2marine online, i have found them much cheaper for the exact same thing Torrensens sells for doubld.

Locally, try Arundel Diesel & Performance (near BWI), or maybe Bay Shore Marine in Edgewater? One more suggestion, Baltimore Diesel Repair, ask for Buddy

Arundel Diesel rebuilt my injectors and injector pump, cost was very reasonable. Are you sure you need new glow plugs? Have you tested them?
