Just for the record, the reman version is
10R-0715: DAMPER AS
Brand: Cat
$402.72 USD
Core Deposit:$208.52 USD

vs new price of $619.59 which is PN 341-2437

I might just get one of those remans for the 87 FC35, need to give it a good eyeball, the front is open, the belts are off et.c.

Chip, I wouldn’t even debate the matter, change at home on your schedule.

I feel like there's fixing to be a run on dampeners

The project FC35 is in the shop for a protracted period of time, the rad and CAC are out, the air compressor is off, the injection pump is next, plenty of time to put a fresh dampener on there unless there's a record of a change, need to go through the box and see if it was done already. Someone painted the engine up real nice... so it's hard to say.

OK but I do, money is money. not sure why a RV cost twice the rate of a truck. Most truck drivers are way more finicky than any RV owner

Dan told me the mechanic made something up onsite to get it done.

Here’s an installer- good enough for limited use at that price, not sure if it goes to a large enough threaded portion for the Cat:
https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-ha...BoCzlIQAvD_BwE

And a puller, same comments as the above:
https://www.eastwood.com/rockwood-45...er-puller.html

Both are super cheap which makes me skeptical, and they say for automotive use.. so may not be strong enough or large enough..

I made it 42 mi North of the SC/GA line on 95 at a rest area last night. It was 12am. I had a terrific ride, just set the cruise at 2500 rpm and let the CAT pur right along. Today I will make it to Ormand Beach to Al P's. A short 4 hrs from here.

Kiki, we used a snap on removal tool but had no installation tool. We did use a thin metal washer in place of the original washer and were able to draw the dampener in. It worked fine but since you are doing it at your house I would recommend using an installer.
