Perkins 4108 re built engine for sale
Perkins 4108 marine engine rebuild
The Perkins 4108M diesel engine is one of the classic diesel engines, it was in production some thirty years and is found world wide, did I once read they use the same engine in London taxies and ice cream vans? They were still in production in 1992 and the records show that companies like Alfa, Hillman and VW used these engines as well.
We now have a spare engine which will be rebuilt using spares imported from England.
We can offer it as a short motor or with the brand new cylinder head in the picture, with serviced injectors and high pressure fuel pump, you can then remove the other parts from your own engine and fit them on to the rebuilt engine.

This is a Perkins 4108M, its running and has done around 1900 hrs since new, it uses no oil between services and has been found to be very reliable. Suitable for yachts around 35ft to 50ft and also for work boats and power craft, the rated HP being between 45 to 50hp depending on the boats hull form and engine speed used.
The two black pipes on the right of the engine and supported by the stainless steel springs, are the supply and return to the boats calorifier and hot water system, run the engine for twenty minutes and you can have a nice hot shower with clean fresh water!
