Caterpillar 3208 Solutions This sub-forum is hosted by Mike Hohnstein who has been at this kind of thing for 50+ years now, guess I'm addicted. The saga has been all about progressively larger shop space since then. Honestly, never wanted to get into the CAT 3208's that were originally considered to be a throwaway engine but that's all that works in a FC in my world. Same thing with my Ford toter, that came with a NA, too much effort to hang in a 6, so been at it with the CAT V-8 for 20 years now. In reality you can get excellent life out of a CAT 3208 if it's built correctly. Post your questions about the CAT 3208 engines here and Mike will try to help you out.

My powder-coater was running some red parts and gave me a good deal and it was a bit untidy. So with all the hose replacements, going thru the injection pump assembly,checking the nozzles,running the overhead,etc....figured I'd spruce it up a little! It makes it think it's faster.....

the turbo cover and down pipe cover are from Advanced Thermal products in Irvine, Ca. They have a complete package for the 3208 and many others. Hand made to order.
