Re: 3208 whining from front cover

The vibration dumper is brand new so its no that for sure. Besides the vibration dumper is the one with the rubber in it so....

 

In any case the noise has gone away after i replaced an o ring on the oil cooler lines (from oil cooler to filter as) go figure!!!

 

Thank you for the replies 

 

Cheers to all!

Check or replace Crank Vibration Damper. if Damper has failed and not absorbing torsionals then increased gear train noise will result  and ultimately gear teeth failure

3208 whining from front cover

Hello! I have 2 cat 3208 375hp 1z18.. .
I get a strange whine coming from the front of the engine. Using a sterhoscope it seems stronger around the crankshaft pulley and oil pump area. I replaced the oil pump and the crankshaft bearings as well as the timing advance gear and still the whining presists! Any ideas??
