U.S. Coast Guard Patrol Boats
To Be Repowered With Cat Engines
NEWPORT NEWS CHRISTENING—Newport News Shipbuilding,
Newport News, Va., recently christened the USS Asheville (SSN-758), the second submarine built in the yard's modular outfitting facility. The eve- ning christening ceremonies for the 360-foot Los Angeles Class submarine were attended by U.S. Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina and Vice
Adm. Daniel L. Cooper, Assistant Chief of Naval Operations (Undersea
Warfare). Mrs. Dorothy Coble Helms, the Senator's wife, christened the vessel.
The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded Caterpillar a $5.7-million contract to repower 43 cutters with
Cat 3412 marine engines and Twin
Disc 518-M marine gears. Each 83- foot patrol boat uses two of the Cat engines, each rated at 750 hp. The contract also calls for one additional engine with gear to be used for instruction at the Coast Guard
Training Center in Yorktwon, Va.
The Cat engines are expected to almost double the life until overhaul of the units being replaced, accord- ing to a company spokesman. Cat
Dealer Holt Company of Louisiana will be the subcontractor for pack- aging the marine enigne, marine transmission and associated con- trols and shipping the modules to
Coast Guard distribution points.
These cutters are steel-hulled with aluminum superstructures and are used for port security, search and rescue. The A Series was constr- cuted in 1960-61, the C Series in 1961-67, and the D Series in 1970.
There are no discernible differ- ences among the various series of
Point Class vessels.

VALVES HOSES PUMPS
VERSATILE TEST STAND
If you're concerned with the perfor- mance and integrity of valves, hoses, and pumps, you need a compact, convenient, hydrostatic test stand like Barbee's
An individual operator work- ing at the HP5000S may replace as many as 5 conven- tional workstations and 10 people. And our method is up to 10 times faster, too.
HOW IT WORKS
The component is held in test position by safe, reliable clamping arms working against 60 tons of force from an internal hydraulic ram. Then up to 5,000 psi of pressure is applied through the same port to test the component.
Precision gauges register pressure in different ranges. 9,1 f- lev baRbee
