PDC/PMD/FSD Pump Driver Cooler for GM 6.5 Diesel & Turbo Diesels, 6.5 liter, Copyright 1994, 1999, 2001, 2009 IAEI/a1customs.com
Our Product is a True Remote Mount version that allows mounting AWAY from HOT engine.

  If your GM 6.5 Diesel or GM 6.5 Turbo Diesel stalls or is stalling, quitting, dies, idles rough, surges in reverse, surges, hesitates or is hard to start, any ONE or more of these are common symptoms of PMD/FSD failure, your 6.5 Diesel can exhibit one, a few or all, OR if you are a person who serious about RELIABILITY of your GM 6.5 Diesel or GM 6.5 Turbo Diesel then Read This page and entire web site as it is likely the Most Important information you will read about the GM 6.5 Diesels and their problems, causes and solutions.

 The Pump Mounted Driver ( PMD ) sometimes called a Fuel Solenoid driver ( FSD ) located in the HOT engine valley on the injection pump is not the best place for a sensitive electronic injection module, and why we invented and designed our PDC (Pump Driver Cooler) /  PDC/PMD Remote Package.

  The PMD (aka FSD) is the most common part to fail on the GM 6.5 Diesels, and they fail due to heat!  

 Our Pump Driver Cooler ( PDC ) was designed for 1994 to 2000+ GM 6.5 Liter Diesel and Turbo Diesel / turbodiesel engines to allow the PMD/FSD to be mounted away from the hot engine to stop chronic PMD/FSD failures from heat. Our product is designed to be Very Easy to install, basically; you unplug your old PMD (PMD stays in place) and connect that plug to the Remote Harness and then mount the PDC unit on the firewall via some screws or fasteners, and that's about it! = EASY!

  If you have questions, make sure to READ this page and it's related PMD pages and especially our FAQ pages, as almost every possible question should be answered somewhere here on the site.
 

      "PDC" and "Pump Driver Cooler" "PDC/PMD Remote Package" and "The Ultimate PMD/FSD cooler" are our Trade Names for these products.

  The PDC/PMD Remote Packages offered here are used on; AMBULANCES/RESCUE VEHICLES, FIRE Department, ARMY, NAVY, Air Force, Marines & Other Military and other Fleet vehicles that demand RELIABILITY!  A few of such have testimonials and follow ups listed on our Feedback page.

 Some symptoms of a failing PMD are; stalling, or hard start, hesitation, miss, rough idle, smoke on start up, surge in reverse or drive often from idle, and just ONE of these or a combination could be related to the most common part to fail on these engines, the PMD.

 Key Features & Benefits of Our PDC cooler design: (Please read as important detailed information explains what to look for in this kind of product.)

  • The PDC ( pump driver cooler ) reduces damaging temperatures on the PMD ( pump mounted driver ) aka FSD ( fuel solenoid driver )
     
  • Allows PMD to be mounted away from the Hot Engine Valley area. Extensive testing with thermal, infra-red and other High-Tech testing equipment has shown that for optimal PMD cooling the unit must be off and away from the hot engine, of which also common sense would indicate, so be wary of any sites stating that engine mounted PMD coolers are OK.
     
  •  *Our Ultimate PMD/PMD Remote Package offers a variety mounting options and our innovative Remote Harness is made from automotive grade wiring and color coded,  OEM (original equipment manufacturer) quality and compatible weather resistant connector.  OEM style wire loom, looks like a factory setup. Documents were filed with the U.S. PATENT OFFICE on our product's unique design features.
     
  •  NOTE:  Many factory injection pump wiring harnesses are just too short when used with the aftermarket remote PMD mounts that mount on top of the HOT engine.  Sometimes cutting the harness covering to gain added length will work but this is not advisable as there is still strain on the vehicle wiring harness.  Our system is Highly Recommended because of our special PMD Remote Harness allows the original harness to remain intact without alteration and will not have any stress & strain created by pulling to try to make it reach as with many other aftermarket coolers. 
     
  •  Our PDC/PMD Remote unit can be mounted so the 'TURBO POWER' cover could be reinstalled, if desired. Better injection pump cooling may result from leaving this cover off if PMD unit is mounted under it, however our testing (and that of others) has indicated there is little difference in temp with cover on.
     
  •  Excellent thermal transfer properties of our Exclusive Heat Sink design and Special Thermal Transfer Pad allows smaller size than other similar productsWe thoroughly tested from 1-1/2 to 2 times larger and no difference in effectiveness and temp of PMD unit, in fact we find our unit's high quality materials and smaller size is still more effective!
     
  •  PMD / FSD mounts properly in the center of our PDC (cooler) for correct and evenly distributed heat transfer; as per expert heat sink manufacturers.  Other products where the PMD mounts off center often results in in uneven cooling, be sure avoid any product like that!
     
  •  The PDC/PMD Remote Package does not require a cooling fan, and other products with a cooling fan are NOT advisable, because their PC type cooling fans usually do not hold up well under the hostile underhood environment with heat, oil, fuel, road salts, dirt and moisture and other elements.
     
  •  PMD / FSD mounts where the PDC's fins run the length of the transistors and not across them. This feature is also different than another similar product.
     
  •  Our Thermal Transfer Pad that far exceeds quality OEM materials, and cut for proper fit.
  •  Thermal Transfer Pad does NOT have cutouts over the PMD / FSD transistors, like the original manufacturer design, and heat is correctly transferred as it should be, unlike the way it would be with the areas cutout as is sold with some 'competing' 'coolers'.  This was confirmed as the correct way to remove heat as per the experts in the thermal transfer industry that serves both the computer and automotive industries. 
    Update: OEM replacement PMDs now come with transfer material without cutouts now, but still of the thin and less effective materials.
     
  •  Heat sink compound or gel is NOT the best idea in this application as has been proven by the experts, it is simply too thin as too much oozes out when PMD/FSD is torqued to specifications, besides not offering enough heat transfer, therefore we use a Special Thermal Transfer Pad Material.
  • Thermal Transfer Pad is of material recommended by experts in the thermal transfer field for electronic modules.
     
  •  Click here to see our page on our; Invention, Design, Research, Development, Manufacturing and Testing, we feel that we put more effort in to our products and that they are better than any competitors and our customers seem to agree.
     
  •  The PDC is a smaller more compact design than similar product, due to its excellent thermal transfer performance characteristics and design. 
     
  • Stainless-Steel Mounting bolts and washers are used to mount the PMD / FSD. Unlike competitors hardware which typically rusts.
     

 Key Features & Benefits of Our Exclusive PMD Remote Harness Design. (Please read as important detailed information explains what to look for in this kind of product.)

  • Our PMD Remote Harness uses quality automotive wiring.
  • COLOR CODED WIRING HARNESS

  • OEM style wire loom, looks like Factory, made of NYLON, not the cheap stuff that melts. Meets or exceeds OEM standards.
     
  • OEM (original equipment manufacturer) connector for the PMD, made by the same company who makes them for GM
     
  • Other mating connector did not exist so our designers 'got more creative', and it is of OEM quality and meets or exceeds OEM specifications.
  • Our product does NOT use problematic double female connector that the cheapie cables do. Beware of any harness that uses a double female connector.

Our Remote Harness has a full year warranty, and the PMD/FSD is warranted by Stanadyne it's manufacturer. Our warranty covers any possible problems due to defects in materials or workmanship, and does not cover misuse, abuse or wear. We have never had a verifiable failure of a PMD / FSD on our PDC!

 Our PDC/PMD Remote Package is a TRUE REMOTE MOUNT product that allows mounting on firewall or other location AWAY from the HOT engine.

 
 About the PMD / FSD modules:

 We use only Brand New Latest Version Stanadyne PMD modules, Stanadyne was the OEM (original equipment manufacturer), for GM (General Motors). The Brand New Design Stanadyne PMDs are out now and are called "Bullet - Proof" (not to be taken literally)  and we have tested and approved them, they are Gray in color, the older PMDs or aftermarket (not as good) are black. The connector socket is different on these New versions of PMDs.

         
 Click image to enlarge or read more about PMDs and Stanadyne Fuel Calibration Resistors.

 The new Gray Stanadyne PMDs have a new connector socket that is not compatible with the older connector, the new connector is also Gray in color. The Newer PMDs cost us more money but we have not yet increased the cost of our product, so order now before we must increase the price.
 
There are a couple aftermarket PMDs on the market and we've tried those newcomer or unproven modules and do not find them to be as good as the Stanadyne units old version or new.
 
Any sensitive electronics however are still at great risk of failing if not mounted on a properly designed 'cooler' and unproven replacements seem to fail at the same rate or more.
 WARNING:  There are some places selling used PMDs and even some reports stated them claiming they were new! some sell on eBay. If a price seems too good to be true, it probably is... We sell NEW products ONLY!
 
Whichever PMD / FSD, all need to be mounted on a properly designed cooler a the key to avoid failure, as far as we know were are the only PMD cooling product manufacturer with a ZERO PMD failure rate!
*

 NOTICE REGARDING PMD CONNECTORS: The New Gray (grey) versions of the Stanadyne PMDs use a New Gray connector that is different than the older black PMD connectors. Previous customers of our BOOST/FUEL CONTROL who do not have the PDC/PMD Remote Package but want one now will need a different connector for the Newer gray PMD fitted for a small cost, or get one of our new adapter harnesses.

Small stock of New PMD/FSD modules and resistors.

  The NEWEST Latest Version PMDs ARE AVAILABLE !
  A NEW PMD is INCLUDED with our PDC / PMD Remote Package, but we do offer them separate for those need to replace a PMD on an inferior cooler or injection pump, we do however highly recommend you do it right and fix with the PDC/PMD Remote Package as the PMD is likely to fail when not on a properly designed and tested 'cooler' like our PDC cooler and when you consider the cost to replace just one PMD it only makes sense to go with the PDC/PMD Remote Package in the first place!

The PMD ( pump mounted driver ) module GM part #12562823 GM sells just the PMD for $519.28 or more, but we offer the PMD module for ONLY $295.00, the Fuel Calibration Resistor is $22.95 extra. 
NOTE: the PMD is included in our PDC/PMD Remote Package, that is only $575.00 internet price.

Q: Can't I just replace the stock PMD in the same location?
  A: Sure you can, but such requires a lot of work and special tools, and it is destine to fail again there, usually replacements in that location fail faster than the originals, click here to read what is involved in replacing PMD / FSD in stock location. For those reasons it is far more advantageous to go with our 'Plug 'n Play' TRUE REMOTE MOUNT product.
 

  The Ultimate The PDC Remote Package is our "Best Seller" product and what is Highly Recommended, and is Only $575.00* INTERNET SPECIAL!!!. This includes a New PMD (same as GM sells), Fuel Calibration Resistor (same as GM sells), Our PDC (Pump Driver Cooler) (which has The Special Heat Transfer Pad, and Stainless-Steel Hardware mounting PMD.)and we correctly mount the PMD on the PDC and this is very important for longevity of the PMD, and we also install the Fuel Calibration Resistor for you, also included is the 30" PMD Remote Harness and Remote Bracket, so the unit is ready to easily install.

 The PDC/PMD Remote Package is simple to install; as you mount the PDC on the firewall or other location and plug our Remote harness in to the stock harness, NO adjustments needed.

 Notice: Please Beware!, There are a few "knock-off" copies of our PMD Remote Harness out there, so avoid being ripped off, ONLY the one sold here as part of the PDC/PMD Remote Package is the original harness designed to remotely mount the PMD, properly!
  The "knock-off"s is/are sold without our permission and NOT endorsed by us in any way.  The competitive "cooler" that the "knock-off" is being sold for (or with) as far as we understand was NOT designed for remote mounting of the engine and that seems apparent by it's physical design.
