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.

Thanks Gardner, your reman number is what I just ordered from Finditparts. They are pretty good and the best price I could find

Let us know when you find one. Mine is weak. WIll build full pressure but that's forever. No big leaks. It will never build air at idle but will hold 120 at cruise speed. It has new belts.
How do you get to it?
Where do I get one? (I searched the above numbers to no avail)

Bus shop had no trouble finding one for me when I had oil in my dryer. Bobbie Martin has the ticket in the blue box which should have a PN.
