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.

Lots of wire wheel work with full face shield and dust mask.
After it's clean, employ a selection from this page.

Thanks Mike, applied lots of wire wheel then applied exhaust cement per your suggestion. Headed out on a short trip Wednesday, will report results when we get back home.

Thanks for the help, wasn't sure if I was missing something when the exhaust seals did not fit.
