Bulldozer engine for former jalopy


Recommended Posts

I worked for Cat for several years...the early B models had some power but then they messed around with things. When we set the timing we'd advance it just a skosh and it would help a lot. The injectors and AFR make a big difference too.

Yeah, there were some early B models that ran great right out of the box, but some where along the way (like a couple of three model years they did things to them (probably smog related) that changed the power output and it seemed after that they just weren't ever as good of a design ( lots of guys had multiple head gasket/and or liner seal problems...and the step timing apparatus was a problem too.

Shaping up pretty good.  It does look like having the axle mounted steering box helped make a little room for the swap.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.
