It's hard to imagine any abuse you'll inflict on

Caterpillar® Engine parts that we haven't already thought of.

Cat® pistons, for example, endure a pulsator test designed to analyze structural integrity at loads up to two times real-life conditions. They put up with extreme external pressures. And, they come back for more—millions of times in each test.

Cat cylinder blocks, liners, heads and head/block joints are likewise subjected to fatigue tests even your

V;- - . most grueling run couldn't duplicate.

In fact, most Cat Marine Engine components are tested at operating conditions far beyond those encoun- tered in normal engine operation.

It's our way of assuring you that Cat components are the most reliable and efficient money can buy.

And that's something we put to the test every day
