Today I started on a CAT six cylinder diesel. Another shop had repaired four cylinders with cheap repair sleeves. Engine lasted only about ten thousand miles. Bad cylinder wear and scoring..
My task is to bore out the bad sleeves to the block material, plus what is needed for correct press fit and press in new CAT dry repair sleeves in all six cylinders. Luckily the sleeved bores only needed .018" more and got four bored,. pressed and finished. Ready for hone. The two original holes had to be bored from 4.331" to 4.516" and 4.518" sleeves pressed in. Will finish that up Monday. Then to the hone. Gotta farm that out, too long for my machine.

What CAT engine takes dry sleeves ?? All the CAT engines I've owned had wet liners.

I was hoping to get the rear support channel painted but alas the Mecum auction trapped me in the living room. I did get it blasted, and welded together.

Tomorrow is another day.

Nope it was metal oem. Put door on today after painting it yesterday with blending fender and rear door. Fit like a glove didn't pretest fit after glueing on because it was first one I did that had lineup holes in it. The fun up here in Saskatewan is on insurance claims you have to do what goverment insurance says. If it tells you to use aftermarket parts or oem parts. Rule of thumb here is anything older than 3 years you have to use aftermarket unless not avaliable.

It is SOOO wrong to put aftermarket parts on a 4 year old $30k car!

Yup. Most of the small diesel engines do not have wet sleeves. They are made a lot like a gasoline engine. Much cheaper to manufacture and not meant to run 25,000 to 40,000 hrs between rebulds like some of the bigger diesels will. We had 2500 hp. engines in our 240 ton haul trucks at the mine that ran over 40,000 hrs before needing changed out. If that was in an over the road rig averaging 50 mph, that would be 2,000,000 miles. Our trucks ran 100 hrs a week minimum. Two ten hr five day shifts plus about half of the trucks on Saturdays.

The company that uses these gets about 500,000 miles from theirs. Thats why they were so upset when this one died prematurely. They ain't cheap to build..

Hit the local car swap meet at PIR this morning! Got a pair of 10"x15" Centerline wheels and tires for $50! The tires are 295-50-15, so they'll become spares for the rear of my Burb, and the wheels will get my old Goodyear Eagle wrinkle walls on them when I take the Falcon to the drags.
Also got a steal on a Ridgid 460 tripod chain vise for less than 10% of new price! The 460 is fantastic for fab work, as it holds very long stock for cutting or welding, and folds up in seconds when not in use! I'll get plenty of use from it!
