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.

There is a filter or a strainer. If it's foam you have the strainer. I would stick with a Bendix part. I have the filter which is superior for filtering and flow and you can modify yours I'm betting. I change mine every 2 or 3 years to be safe.

Are you talking about Bendix Air Strainer Kit 278500N ?
Definitely a good addition or mod.

I put one on also Crit, the stock filter is junk. This one is much better.

How fast does a new compressor air up the coach ?
