  • Catapillar Engine????????

    I had some POS tell me today that the catapillar tractor folks used to build the engines for early 1970's through the early 1980's and that's why they were painted yellow. When I bought my CJ (1980) the guy I bought it from worked at catapillar and when he rebuilt the motor he painted it catapillar yellow. Is there any truth to that??

    News to me I have several pieces of Caterpillar equipment and their engines would smash a CJ. Never new Cat to make automotive engines. They did buy out Towmotor forlklifts some time ago, don't know what engines those are though. DP

      Hello gents heres the skinny on the yellow Cats. The only diesel ever used in Jeeps were Perkins in the early 60's and Isuzu 4 cyls in the export or government Jeeps in the 1980's. Never a kitty-cat from Jeep.
