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.

Gut feeling is I have the same problem as what John McGinnis had. It sure looks like it anyway. After stopped it will leave about 10 drops of oil on the floor.

How much was the total bill to get those gaskets fixed?

It also feel like my 3208 might be worth this repair even at 4100 hours.
