Thanks for asking your question and requesting me. I will try and help you out.

Can you get me the engine serial number please? If it's a C15 the serial number should start with BXS, MXS, or NXS.

Thanks for the information.

Actually the BXS has less issues that the later models. Cat changed the Iva and rocker arm assembly on the later engines MXS and NXS. These engines suffered rocker arm bolt failures. But the BXS has the more sturdy setup and has no bolt failures on the top end.

The biggest issue with these engines when they cam out were the water pump shaft breaking. Cat redesigned the water pump to remedy the problem. The BXS is a great engine.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
