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 Tensioner pulley

I am at an emergency repair facility after being towed in due to the idler pulley mounted on the front of the engine coming off at hwy speed. The parts man cant find a part number. Lost oil pressure and engine temp hit 220 before I limped to the shoulder. Pressure and temp returned to normal after a 15 min idle. Belts were intact when I climbed under the vehicle. Any ideas where to locate the number or what it is ?

It's a Caterpillar part, call with your engine number,
the pulley can be rebuilt with bearings, a spindle and a bearing press.
Lot of info on this forum, try a search.
Maybe someone else has the part number handy,
