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.

STOP NOW,
if your dash air gauges are leaking down to in 10 minutes, there is a brake problem, the leak must be found.

Hey Bill you asked about the Squeal, it is still there and everyone points to the Turbo or the manifold. It still increases when under load especially loud when she shifts into her high gears..
