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.

Question Injection pump work

Most common source of fuel leak from the plastic tubes behind the powersteering pump. Cam shaft seals wear into the material, fix is chrome and grind to size, refresh cam lobes.

Tapered flange index's into drive gear that's driven by cam gear, that's driven by crank gear, that also drive oil pump. Busy gear train.

Image of shaft has taper and fuel pump removed.

great idea on putting the screens over the head intake ports,that keeps the "hard" parts from accidentally falling in.
