I have used C.A.T. products for quite some time. The valve train products tend to be very good. The rods, as previously stated tend to have quality/finish problems, tho, I haven't had problems with them after correcting and installing the parts. NOW, the cranks! ALL the affordable cranks are from across the pond. I have had some questionable Eagles, some Scats and some of the private brand stuff. BUT< the worst, most under ground, over polished, tapered, out of round, oil holes in the wrong place, off drilled counterweights, improper runout, wrong keyway and bad thrust surface cranks have all come from C.A.T. I now run the other way when they come thru the door. Come to think of it. Not many have been around lately. Maybe they quit selling to the jobbers in Michigan. Or the jobbers have such a stack of returns that they no longer order.
