Re: Manuals or advice

[ Edited ]

Please disregard my previous message. I visited the Caterpillar dealer in my area to see if they could help and found that the ID numbers listed above are actually casting numbers. Furthermore, it appears that, in spite of the Caterpillar name being printed on the engine, it is actually a Perkins. Apparently Caterpillar owns Perkins and labels some of the Perkins engines as Caterpillar. (who knew?) I was also informed that the model and serial number is located on a plate above the injector pump (conveniently hidden by a fuel line.) I just have to start my research over looking for Perkins info. :-)

I have a 3 cyl. Caterpillar deisel that powers a DC generator.The model number (as near as I can tell from the stamping on the block) is S773L. Does anyone have any information of this engine? I also would like to get a manual for it, but I first need to confirm that the model number is a correct one.

On my ancient gas powered motor home, I had to trace the fuel lines until I located the fuel filter on the frame rail. Good luck although it has been 6 month since your question.

Most engines have two fuel filters. Primary and Secondary. The primary filter is the first one the fuel sees coming from the fuel tank and it often is equiped with a drain valve and a sensor that tells you there is water to be drained.
