    Saving money on CAT parts

    Recently I replaced a pulley on my 3116. I priced it at a CAT, and it was around $230. Using this company I paid $65. Quality is good. Is aftermarket part. I have no financial interest in this company.

    A review of the polyurethane bushing replacements / upgrade for FMTV sway bars

    Just wanted to do a quick review of the FMTV/MTV sway bar bushing upgrades available from Awesomeness/ Guido. The install was fairly easy on my M1088.

    I've never seen my m1088 transmission cooler fans come on

    Think that radiator is aluminum? Think again

    Today I used a radiator cleaner to clean it. As I cleaned it it become apparent that what I thought was aluminum, was copper/brass. Why this design? It lasts A LOT longer than aluminum.

    How to add a liter of displacement to your CAT for about $170

    This was a very interesting video. They looked at how turbo blankets impacted the power output of an engine. Beware of cheap, fake "blankys" on net. Go with something like a PTP. I believe there are a number of different turbos, including borg-warners, 225hp, 275hp, 290hp etc. Guess we will...

    Curious about best apparatus to put in 3.07 middle gears

    Hi Guys, Well the axles went in for balancing yesterday. Tiger Tool helped a lot. If you use one you must take the zerks out first. They get destroyed. I need to drop in the 3.07 gears.
