I put in a new turbo cat 215 excavator 3304 engine
I put a new turbo on it and it was smoking really bad and had a huge amount of blow by. I took the heads off to find out that it had a crack in it right above the injector. I thought it was the injector but after I went through all this trouble I found out it was the head.
I have never seen this before when I pulled the head off there is 2 studs on each side of the head that are like a cup and underneath those cups is where you put your oil for your injectors. It looks like those studs have cracked off from what ever reason I have no idea why.

Advances in fuel injection and cooling systems allowed it to produce 137 net horsepower at 2,000 rpm
The Model T was the first Ford vehicle to use the assembly line when it was introduced in 1908. In addition, it was the first automobile to be mass-produced using interchangeable parts, an innovation developed by Henry Ford and employees Clarence Avery, Charles Sorensen and C. Harold Wills.
The first engine built for the Model T had a cylinder bore of 3.75 inches and a stroke of four inches. It generated 20 horsepower at 1,200 rpm. Advances in fuel injection and cooling systems allowed it to produce 137 net horsepower at 2,000 rpm by 1927.
The 215 excavator was fitted with the larger 225B-spec engine in that year, offering 201 gross horsepower and 177 net horsepower at 2,000 rpm
The 215 was actually a little lighter than the previous model, coming in at 59,500 pounds compared to 61,500 pounds. But it could lift slightly more weight than the 210, handling 13,300 pounds versus 13,000. Its dig depth was also slightly better than the 210’s.
The 215 came standard with a general purpose bucket with teeth that weighed 2,720 pounds and measured 84 inches wide. It could handle between 4.9 cubic feet and 6 cubic feet of material per pass. The machine’s swing speed was 10.7 rpm.
This equates to an increase of 61 gross horsepower and 40 net horsepower over the previous 215 models
This equates to an increase of 61 gross horsepower and 40 net horsepower over the previous 215 models. This is a big jump in power, but it’s not completely unexpected. It was back in 2017 that we first told you that Volvo was planning on using a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to replace its five- and six-cylinder engines.
For comparison’s sake, the current XC90 T5 uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that puts out 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The Volvo S60 sedan with its more powerful T6 trim level puts out 316 hp and 295 lb-ft from the same displacement engine.
While the company hasn’t said if this will be its only engine for the 2020 model year, we sure hope so. It looks like a good time to be shopping for a three-row family hauler.
