RobertK, looking up your information on Caterpillar 3126 engine. You did not include the engine s/n number but assume your engine is a 1WM prefix. Looking into the technical information
there has been some updates but nothing to amount any drastic changes on your engine preformance. Can you give me a more detailed account of your engine serial number as to
where I can help you if your engine is amount the updates. Ask Dave, Dave Atherton Retired

We'll paint in my mind is something I wouldn't want on any electrical connections and would carefully try and remove without damaging the pins.
