Caterpillar has increased the range of its ‘precious metals’ engine rebuild kits to include its C9 engines.
This means the kits will be available for the 330C, 330C L and 330C LN excavators, D6R and D6R II dozers, the 12H motor grader and the 627G/ 636G scrapers.
As with the initial 3406, 3306 and 3176 engines, the C9 rebuild kits come in four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The basic Bronze kits includes gaskets, seals, oil and fuel filter, camshaft bearings and exhaust manifold sleeves.
The Silver kit also contains pistons, piston rings, retainers and cylinder liners. In addition to the Bronze kit components, the Gold kit contains six Cat Reman pre-assembled cylinder packs, while the Platinum kit adds a cylinder head, fuel injectors/nozzles, a water pump and an oil pump.
The manufacturer says any reconditioned parts are machined to the original tolerances and the parts in the kits are updated to the latest specification. Caterpillar is also developing rebuild kit for other machines in its range.
