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 Injector Pump Throttle Shaft re seal project

Hello all. I am getting ready to re seal my throttle shaft on my 3208 injection pump. I have read many posts on here and I also found a list of seals needed. I started looking to order my parts from Cat but some part numbers are not working. Does anyone have a parts list for this task that has done it recently? Attached is a list that came from Mr Finns pump fix that I am using.

Visit your local Cat. dealer, they will cross the part numbers,
may even print a picture of all the injection pump parts.
But at this age it may be wise to remove the pump and have it rebuilt.

Pumps only got 30,000 miles on it. If I do anything I’d just put in a reman.
