Home / Martin's Series / CAT 397 dropped valve [23]

Pictures of an older Caterpillar D397 8 cylinder Diesel engine that dropped a valve, cracked the piston, seized it, then the connecting rod stayed in the bored limiting the damage. End result, replaced turbo, two kits, two heads, but no damage to block, cam or crankshaft. Unbelievable.
