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.

Well, Mike and Randy were right the pump rack is stuck. The #3 plunger is also stuck in its bore. Time to pull the pump and send it to Mike.

Well, today the new owner is on I-64 eastbound on his way to Huntington, West Virginia.

I ended up putting a rebuilt injection pump from Mike H on it along with a Facet lift pump and new fuel lines and it runs great.

Hopefully, the new owner will join here and chime in.
