Re: Information about the Cat 3208
Rebuilt sleeved parent bore engines are typically not highly desired. It isn't the same as a wet sleeved factory engine.
The 3208 will die a slow death and become more and more rare. Even the 2 stroke DDs are being seen less and less and they were meant to be overhauled indefinately for the most part.
You see the 3208s in alot of boats but when many repower they upgrade to a more powerful and efficient engine like the Yanmars for not alot more money. They just weren't meant to be around forever.
