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 DIY fuel polishing question

Has anyone on the board had success with DIY fuel polishing, and if so what did you use?

(edit) Please disregard... found Mike's Fuel Polishing on the Cheap thread.

Thanks Mike.

3/8" fuel hose, pump rated for petroleum, a filter arrangement and time. Not a tough DIY project really. Run in/out hoses into the tank fill pipe and get busy.
