Default Fuel bleeder petcock replacement - CAT3208T

I recently needed to bleed the fuel system on my coach and found the petcock jammed. It will not open - so I want to replace it. I purchased a new petcock and have found that in order to remove the org valve (as shown in the diagram starting this thread, the fuel bleed petcock on the 3208T is right next to the governor. The housing prevents rotating the valve body to unthread from the base plate).

Can anyone advise on the process to raise up/remove the governor? I have learned not to assume that it will be a simple job of just removing the 4 perimeter bolts and lifting up...what are the details involved - I do not have a engine service manual. What specific steps are required?

Default 3208 Injection Pump

Hi Frank,

Take your 3208 arrangement numbers to the Cat Dealer, They can print several drawings , the attached drawing will give you an idea of the parts involved. You will need several gaskets, This area should be dry, if fuel is present the lip seal will need to be replaced. You may want to replace the seal and all gaskets while you are in there. These are inexpensive parts.

The fuel ratio control or 'anaroid' is easily removed to facilitate the change of the needle valve. I choose to leave that rascal out of the mix on my 3208s. The anaroid acts as a fuel delivery delay, to reduce tail pipe puff when the throttle is mashed on hard. It's not a required component for successful engine operation. Using the gasket for a pattern, a 3/16" thick steel plate can be fashoned to plug the hole.

Working on the bus today. Noticed the fuel bleed petcock to clean, like missing a hose, line or cap. Anyone tell me what's missing?

Should have a hose hooked to it to direct fuel to bottom side of engine

That's what happens when I wait two months to put something back together. Thanks John, I was walking in circles looking looking for nothing. Need a second or third set of eyes to keep me right
