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.

Default Aneroid

I am about to follow Mike H's suggestion ( that should actually read direct order I guess ) and remove the aneroid from my bus. As it is now I get a small amount of black smoke when under a load. Will I probably need to make any adjustments such as to the fuel screw afterward or is it going to be a case by case thing and we don't know until test driving ?

The aneroid limits rack travel related to boost pressure. NA, didn't have boost so no aneroid, they work just fine. Only difference is you can make a better black cloud when mashing on the throttle if desired. Total fuel flow is unaffected.
