    Default Cat 14 D parts

    I'm looking at buying a cat 14 d but it is missing the brake master cylinder. Are these a common part or are they something special? Also the exhaust manifold is broken. The mount for the elbow after the turbo is broken off and there is a hole in the manifold. Is this something easily brazed back together or better off replacing.

    Default 14D - Parts and repairs

    Hi, Ryanrmueller.
    Pretty much any brake master cylinder of sufficient capacity would do the job but you may be able to pick up the original unit from Florin Tractors at Sacramento, CA..

    They may also have the manifold and other exhaust parts that you mention but I suspect that a welder worth his salt would be able to repair both of those parts.

    Just my 0.02.
    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    Since it's cast iron I was thinking a torch and a little brazing rod

    Default It'll Doo.

    Hi, Ryanrmueller.
    It'll do if you don't have the required arc welding electrodes and/or are a bit 'hesitant' about your skills with arc welding cast iron. The other thing with brazing with a welding torch is that the heat is applied more slowly and is distributed more evenly throughout the weld area and surrounding metal, which also helps to eliminate cracking problems.

    Even it was arc welded, it would likely need to be pre-heated with a torch anyway.
