For Sale: This is a Caterpillar Stationary Engine. It is a D8800 diesel motor. It has been used to pump water form the well at the ranch for 20 years. It has never failed to start. We check the water and the oil every time. This engine has been well-maintained. It runs great. In fact, we used it to pump water to fill the two tanks before we installed the new engine. This engine has a pony motor starter. The pony motor has a crank starter. There is not an electric starter for the pony motor. It takes about 7-10 cranks to start, depending on the weather. Once the pony motor is started, the Caterpillar engine starts right up. It is realiable and dependable. In fact, we ran it and filled our two water tanks before disconnecting it to put in the new motor.
We have the original Operator's Manual and the Parts Catalog. If you have any questions, please ask. We can get an answer to you as quickly as we can.
We are up at the ranch most of the week, so you will have to leave a message on the town phone. We will call you back as soon as we are there. The town phone is 661-322-8212. If someone happens to answer, ask for David.
