Was at the local cat dealer today finishing the paperwork on the new to me 226B, and in talking to the service manager we did a search and found that there is a program to replace cylinder head gaskets on the cat (perkins)3024 engine.Apparently the stock ones have problems and this upgrades them to a better gasket.
This is done free of charge to the owner. I'm not sure what machines/serial #'s are affected, you'd have to talk with your local dealer and check your machine. Mine is a 2006 model if that helps anybody. The bad news is that you've got to be below 4000 hours and the program expires December 31/2008. If this could be you, you probably want to get on this.....:waving:
