Default Cat motor mount bracket

I am in the process of fitting a late style gasoline starting engine to an early Cat D353 diesel engine and needed to fab a top mount.
This is how it's done in the prairie.
2- old brackets
3- ready to fit up
4- a nice torch cut
6- tacked in place
7- complete and ready to install

Jeff, nice work and this repair like the other one you have posted looks to be less the usual headache of pulling half the darn thing apart to access the area.

Again, nice work. But I'm thinking that Pile is making conversation, because I know he looked at pic #3 for sure. lol

BTW Pile, I'd have used the circle cutter with the Plasma or the O/A as well. No doubt about it. lol

nice work, if the pup motor still give you problem, head to the CAT BB and ask old magnet about direct electric start. they wanted $1300 usa money and he helped me putting a starter on my cats for about $383.00.

http://acmoc.phpwebhosting.com/viewforum.php?f=6

electric start is cheaper then pup motors.

pile buck, good you are back and joining us regualar, i saved that picture in my computer, someday i'll better myself, LOL

tigman250, you've got one of those on your truck? Now that would be a well rounded rig.
