Our certified mechanic from the Gulf Coast takes us inside a Caterpillar engine while he replaces the rods and mains.
He checks for scarring, heat marks and sludge, indicators of excessive blowby. When replacing the rods and mains, checking for these issues prevents a small problem from turning into a bigger problem. Mechanic installs new main bearings and main caps.
