I've had no issues getting parts for my 3126B from the Cat dealer. If they don't have what I need in stock, they usually get it in a day or two. Although my engine has been reliable, I've done a lot of preventative maintenance over the past year since we bought it.

No concerns at all, I love my Cat engine. Definitely recommend them.

Any information on the Cumming engines from those years ? Ill post on that forum but thought you might have some knowledge on that subject also. Ken

Cat parts can usually be had next day if they dont have them in stock. You have a good plan there buying high-end pre-emissions. You need to convince your wife that you do or tell her that she can work on it if it breaks down because of emissions issues. Lol.

Same with our C12... glides over steep hills pulling our Equinox without a whimper. Also, there are CAT dealerships all over the country and practically all will work on MHs with CAT motors.
