    Well the new to me transfer case that was sent my way by GentrysGarage landed in the yard today.
    Thanks for your effort in helping line it up and get it to the shipper.

    What i had forgotten was that i had buried my engine hiost in the shop behind an M37 Cab i plan on doing some welding to this evening and had to find an alternative to get it out of the truck.
    All worked out well ..the boys are coming by tomorrow so we can haul it into the shop for safe keeping.

    Many, Many thanks.

    I always felt the CAT 3208 and 3408 where the best series engines they ever produced. To bad they couldn't meet the emission standards.

    If i could get ahold of a turbo core at a reasonable price i would consider playing with one. What i wont do is order a single part from cat..outrageous prices. Especially when the 3208 became obsolete in 1990. $750 for an overhaul manual and 3 weeks to "assemble" it. Pfft..its their corporate attitude of absolutely screwing a customer that wants to do their own repair work that killed their market share in on highway.
    Every time..dollar for dollar I'm a detroit diesel guy. The exception is if youre moving dirt..even then it wouldnt be a cat.

    Yes CAT has always been expensive to buy and rebuild. It was like the "Cadillac" of engines, while the Detroit Diesel was the "Chevy" of the diesel world. Now I'm afraid CAT has lost all their street cred due to their stupid corporate attitude towards profit at all costs. Their C-9 engine basically brought them to bankruptcy due to it's horrible design flaws. We called it the "see through" engine at the transit department since it would blow out the case on both sides when the rods came loose !
    I have a picture somewhere with my arm all the way through the block.

    I'd love to see those pics. Every one of the majors had their share of lemmons. Even with the terrible horrible open-deck-what-were-they-thinking 8.2l fuel pincher at least the deroit people did their best to help you out of a bad situation.
    They practically give me 2 stroke stuff when i need it. And part numbers and info.Just a great company to deal with.

    I always thought Detroit Diesel should have tried harder to make their 2 stroke engines pass emissions . The 4 stroke units are OK, but you cannot get them to rev like the old 2 strokes could. Man you could make a truck "Fly" with that engine !
    Though truth be told I've always been a "Cummins" guy. The old "KT" series making over 600HP back in the 1970's was a seriously crazy engine ! I replaced more twisted drivelines from that engine combo then I could count ! The M11 was also a great power house engine and very dependable. Also I love the IHC engines to. Not the newer "electronic" controlled units but the good old manual linkage units.

    Yeah the KT/KTA's were monsters.. if i had to use a 4 stroke it would be a cummins..as long as i had enough hood! Hahaha. Years ago i had a Mack RS700L with the big..and i mean big V8..it was a brute. Unlimited torque but was sooo thirsty. Lately I've been dreaming a little of a p-pumped DT466 but i'm already stocked up with detroits so i doubt i'll get to one.
