I have about 10 Hella relays as part of the electrical system, rated at 40A. I carry 2 spares for those. The engine Pump Power Relay is also 40A, but no idea whether it has other specs such as temperature. I'm using a Hella one until I get a couple of John Deere relays - one to use and one as a spare. The relay failure was a low probability event but spares are low cost.
But no spare ECU. Or injector pump. AFAIK
they are low probability failures. Not concerned about that, I've got two engines! What would I do if going somewhere really remote or crossing an ocean? Maybe talk to the dealer about a reasonable spares inventory based on their statistics on failures. And carry a satellite phone!
