Caterpillar is offering four new ‘Precious Metals In-frame Overhaul Kits’ for on-highway engines – simple to order, pre-packaged, and backed with Cat warranties, no matter who does the work. These kits are initially available for 3406E, C-15, and C-16 engine models, with development of others underway.
The kits include all parts necessary for a variety of repair options, from a basic repair to a complete in-frame overhaul. They can be purchased over the counter at any authorized Cat dealer and come with a factory-backed, one-year parts warranty, covering Cat parts needed to correct the failure—including Cat parts damaged by the failure—and labor needed to correct the failure at an authorized Cat dealer. Extended service coverage is also available for up to 4 years, with no mileage or hour limitations.
Previously, technicians would have to list and order each individual part for an overhaul, so these kits are both more convenient and cheaper, while minimizing selection errors.
The overhaul kits come in four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Every level includes Cat oil and fuel filters, exhaust manifold sleeves, exhaust manifold studs, thermostats, new hold-down bolts and O-ring seals for fuel injectors, and all necessary upper- and lower-level seals and gaskets. Every component is manufactured with the latest engineering upgrades.
