    I spotted this old Cat on a recent trip and took a few shots. It has a 3 cylinder diesel with a pony motor to start. The ID plate had too much paint on it to be legible, can anyone identify this machine?

    Well shut my mouth! Back in the days when carpenters helped build heavy equipment. Now that's old! :D
