Yes there are CAT stores every were but they are not the same. The CAT dealer in Longbeach CA is worthless to a boater. Some dealers have stock and some donít. The NC guys have it or they can have it to your boat tomorrow even if you are broke down it Cresent City, CA.

For the record...CAT doesn't own the Farm Equipment. Challenger is owned by AGCO. With that said...several CAT dealers also own Challenger dealerships.

I ended up ordering from NC Machine in Chehalis WA. Great folks. Ordered on Wednesday and got my parts on Friday. What surprised me was the part numbers out of my part manual are all still valid. For the straight lines they ordered the blue silicon hose. The fitted hoses (90 degree) are factory numbers. Some of these parts are silicon!!

So $400 later for one engine I have to wire wheel some rust (from my antifreeze leak) and paint. Then start replacing hoses. Let the fun begin.

Thank you everyone for the assistance.

It has taken a bit, but I have the Port engine hoses replaced. I am waiting on a pipe that I discovered was deteriorated badly. See Pic. Wouldn't have discovered it if I had not decided to replace hoses.

Most of the CAT parts are silicon which surprised me.

I also found these little clamp covers. This will save blood being spread around the engine room.

cats use of silicone is more prevalent on marine engines but there are still many applications that use normal rubber hoses. i think cats main use of silicon is focused on high heat areas where rubber will not last.
