    Saw your post about Cat 3196 and you appear to be knowledgeable.
    I am negotiating a boat that had a "partial rebuild" apparently after a major issue, that likely was the aftercoolers failing.
    Both aftercoolers were "rebuilt" and 2 cylinders on one engine were rebuilt and the engine has been running close to 100 hours over the past 1-1/2 yrs.
    The "rebuild" was done by an independant shop well reputed, with the owner having previously been a lead tech at Caterpillar, but not an Authorized Caterpillar shop.

    The issue is: How do I determine if the rebuilt aftercoolers were actually UPGRADED, or merely put back in working order, waiting for the next blow-up?

    Thanks for a prompt reply to Yachtsman1944 at my yahoo address directly, since I can't log in here daily.
