Cat sump switching

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a question I might be on the wrong forum for, i have a 92 superliner with a 3406b cat with a rear sump pan and it gave up the ghost, got a new used motor but it has a front sump pan. My question is regarding switching the pans over to rear sump to fit the truck, I’m looking for some information on what goes into switching them, is it a matter of just switching the dip sticks sump pickup and pan or is there a little more than I’m bargaining for? New motor has 100k on inframe, jakes and runs real nice, just looking for some info if any body has an idea of what goes into switching the pans over. Thank you!

On a Mack when installing a reman engine and the original has a rear sump and the reman has front sump we just swap pans, oil pump pick-up and dipstick locations. I would imagine it would be the same for the Cat engine. New pan gasket, oil pump pick-up seals/gaskets.
