We bought a boat with cat diesel engine. Seller told us that it has 350hp 3116. Where engine number should be in 3116 or 3126? I can't find it any where.
There is cast number in left side of block. Does it tell someting about the engine. I changet all zinc rods I found. 3 in heat exhanger, 2 in trans oil cooler, 4 in aftercooler. In 3116 aftercooler shold have 2 zinc? and 3126 5 zinc?
If the engine does have 3126 aftercooler where is the 5th zinc? There was 4 zinc top side of the cooler? Exthaus elbo didn't have any zinc. Should I install zinc there also?
About the oils. Is sae30 cat special aplication oil only oil that is recomended in this engine? or does mobil or other brands have oil that I could use?
This is our first marine diesel so I thing there is lot of guestion coming on about maintenanse. It's still working like dream.
