Silver Precious Metals Kit
Silver Precious Metals Kit


This precious metals kit delivers a reliable, affordable repair




There’s a Cat® heavy-duty precious metals kit designed for a wide range of repair needs — from the low-cost, basic rebuilds of bronze kits to the premium overhauls of platinum kits — that reset your truck engine to like new specifications. Bronze kits provide main, rod and thrust bearings as well as exhaust sleeves, exhaust manifold studs and other value-add components.

If you notice warning signs like a decrease in power, an increase in oil consumption or excessive exhaust smoke, you may be due for a simple rebuild. If you’re able to reuse your connecting rods, a more intensive maintenance option, like the silver precious metals kit, is likely your best choice. Silver kits build on the parts included in bronze kits, with additional pistons, rings, pins and retainers.
