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 Missing Fastener

Noticed this recently. Wonder if it is an issue? Don't have anything in my bolt can that fits it.

Any idea what it is for?

Should I worry about it?

Cat house item?

the missing bolt holds the oil cooler to the block,with a bolt missing it could start leaking oil,or even crack the coolers casting.
I would be looking for a bolt.
Is the old bolt broken off in the block?
