I have an engine that I would sell. No starting engine, air cleaner or flywheel, the rest is there including the radiator. It is stuck. It would be a pick up item as shipping could get very pricy depending on the service used. $400 loaded on a trailer.
Thanks
Ken

I'd suggest you sleeve your liners, though they will be the hardest steel on the planet to machine, new rings are made by lots of different folks, I had a set made in the USA for a Thirty a year ago and they were about $US230 for 4 cylinders, while you might need to consider re-babbiting those crankshaft bearings.

A guy in SA had some top carrier roller housings for his Diesel 35 made at Callington Cast Iron foundry a few years ago, I get Cat parts made there and they are good to deal with, Jim is the owner, good guy, I'm thinking it was about $150 for the rough casting of the housing, he would make the rollers too.

There's a nice fella called Mark Gibson up near Brisbane who rebuilt a Diesel 35 about 7 or 8 years ago, I remember him having a tough time pulling the liners, he might have re-sleeved them, I can't remember now, but he would be a good guy to talk to, let me know if you want his contact details, I'm sure he is a ACMOC member, though I never see him on here.
Mike

Ha ha Ken, that would be nice, though it might take her about 1,000 trips to get the whole engine over here, everything on a Cat is heavy as you know. For us Aussies it's a heartbreak to see so many old Cats and parts come up for sale Stateside, often cheap, like those two 22's being sold right now, but the current exchange rates kill us, and shipping costs, that is why I was suggesting other options.

There is a real nice Aussie I know who bought a RD6 out of the US about 8 or 9 years ago, when he arrived at the wharf to pick it up he noticed in the distance a guy on a forklift pushing the tractor backwards with one of his fork prongs resting on the front of the tractor, but when he got all the paperwork signed and went over to look at his new toy he noticed a puddle of water on the ground at the front, guess what, the moron and his forklift had punched a hole in the bottom radiator tank.

The guy went back in the office to complain, but they obviously denied doing it, and sadly he had to import another radiator from the US.

My wife would like to come over and visit all of her aunts and cousins but I do not know if that will happen in the near future. It has been many years since was there. Her mother has only been back once over the last ten years. Her mother was one of the immigrants from Holland in the late 50s or early 60s and was 5 at the time of the move.
When I was talking about moving the engine by carry-on I was thinking about the time that I went to the opening of the Heidrick Ag Museum and I bought a KW HK mag and a Cat Thirty headlight from Buzz Stetler and stuffed them in my carry-on to get them home. Airport security was not happy, but let me through. I do not think that would happen in a post 9-11 world.
