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.

If you have all the work done, it could be north of 20,000 at the least. I wouldn't worry about it giving up if its running right now.

There isnt much cheap about owning a classic. Be it a Wanderlodge or a 65 Mustang it cost to keep it going. If they are going to California ensure they have Coach Net Roadside coverage for towing if they break down.

Your looking for a clutch and fan??? I didn't find that thread.

Important gage to add to the cluster right here. Will tip the operator off of impending disaster before terminal damage occurs, might want to go with a warning light too.
