Manifold should be a Cat Classic part.I bought one for an D342 in November....front bit £900 ish,back bit £1200 ish from Cat but only paid £90 for front and £120 for back under Cats Classic scheme. :)

yeah that`s what i was thinking Nicky ,but he won`t come back with engine or arrangment numbers as you know cat`s are expensive to fix
or rebuild. but would love a v8 cat to go with my v8 detroit and scania !!!! must look up the classic scheme thank`s Nicky

on uncle sams american circus peter (the owner) has a peterbilt with a cat V8 with a RR13speed it slow off the mark but go's like the clapers when you wind it up i driven it she is gettin old now tho the rust is startin to set in pete spent a fortune abt 8yrs ago have the engine rebuilt at cats at spalding ! any way if you get the cat lump for your KW make sure you can get the right transmission ring to fit your G/box good luck with it
