Cat D3

I've been doing some work on a guys Cat D3 dozer. It's a Japanese made dozer, all of the ID tags are in Japanese. The engine has a tag that has a Cat model number of 3204. The injection pump looks just like the ones I've seen on 3304 and 3306's. The valve cover is shaped just like the ones on a 3208. What gets me is the engine block has a Mitsubishi emblem cast in it. Anyone know the story with this little crossbred dozer? I'm just curious.

Cat and Mitsubishi have a long partnership together dating back from the 60's. Mitsubishi was Cat's partner for mfg and dist. in Japan. Mitsubishi now makes cats forklifts and also builds there Excavators also.
