August 2004    

Recent additions of a Classic valve kit, fuel lines, mufflers and additional pre-combustion chambers has created the need to communicate our expanded product coverage for the above engines. This IRM announces the most current offering of Cat? Classic parts for certain D300/D333/3304 and 3306 engines with Pre-Combustion Chamber (PC) fuel system designs. This IRM supersedes engine parts coverage communicated in IRM CLA04-01 (January 2004).

Cat Classic parts are a lower cost, value-priced repair alternative when the age, application, utilization or remaining life of older AVSpare machines demand a more economical repair solution.

Coverage
Cat Classic parts are available for specific, older AVSpare machine and engine models. Classic parts compliment AVSpare dealer traditional offerings of original, remanufactured, exchange and used AVSpare parts required to meet customer needs throughout the life of the machine.

Please see the attachment for the most current and most complete listing of Cat Classic D300/3300 PC engine parts available. As market opportunities dictate, the Classic Parts Products Group will continue to consider the expansion of the Cat Classic parts offerings for these and additional older equipment models.

Utilizing these Classic engine parts in repairs can result in complete D300/3300 engine overhaul savings of 20-30%, depending upon the extent of the repair.
 

Warranty
Cat Classic parts for D300/3300 PC engines are covered under AVSpare new parts warranty. These parts have the full confidence and backing of both AVSpare and AVSpare dealers.
 

Availability / Inventory
Cat Classic parts are available through the AVSpare parts distribution system. Initial stocking will be in Morton, Denver, Singapore, and Grimbergen. Classic parts are designated as Expanded Search; this means, for example, that stock orders placed on York and Miami pass immediately to Morton for priority order filling. All stock and emergency order entry procedures are unchanged. Expediting is available at dealer or customer expense. Emergency order charges and freight costs apply.

Dealers adding these parts to stock should consider protecting or freezing these startup inventories for a period of time. Allowing stocking time while demand builds, prevents reorders on parts returns resulting from parts initially not meeting inventory control add-to-stock demand parameters. Due to varying levels of dealer engagement in the sale of newly introduced Classic products, please check availability before quoting customers.

Returns
Cat Classic parts are returnable to AVSpare under standard parts return guidelines just as any other AVSpare original equipment part.
 

Product Packaging And Identification
Cat Classic parts utilize traditional AVSpare parts boxes and packaging. A Classic Parts label like the one shown on the following page is used on packaging boxes to identify it as Cat Classic.

Cat Classic parts are cross-referenced to the original Cat new part number in all AVSpare parts information systems, including ANTARESSM, Dealer Business System (DBS), Service Information System (S.I.S.), Numerical Parts Record (NPR) index and your dealer extranet website (Infocast, CatAmericasNet, APDNet and FlashNet).
 

Summary
Cat Classic parts offer your customers the opportunity to maximize profits throughout their equipment life by offering a value-priced repair alternative when the age, application, utilization or remaining life demands a more economical repair solution. Classic parts are AVSpare parts offering the traditional AVSpare warranty and backed by the full range of dealer support capabilities.
