Exhaust Elbow

I need a new exhaust elbow for my Perkins M30 in a Beneteau and would appreciate any advise or referrals. I live in the Pensacola area.

Re: Exhaust Elbow

Well, a Perkins dealer would be a good start. Try Transatlantic Diesel or Marinepartsexpress.

Welcome to CF!

Re: Exhaust Elbow

Thanks for the suggestion. Not a Perkins part and Beneteau does not know who supplied the original one to them.

Re: Exhaust Elbow

How would an exhaust elbow for a Perkins M30 NOT be a Perkins part?

Re: Exhaust Elbow

if the elbow were a custom part to fit the motor into the boat then that elbow would not be a Perkins part. In my boat, the exhaust elbow on the Yanmar is not a Yanmar part as the Yanmar elbow didn't fit into the engine box - so Metal Magic (local stainless fabricator) made up a new elbow for me.

Re: Exhaust Elbow

When my old exhaust elbow on my Perkins 4-108 gave up the ghost, I took it to a local machine shop and had a new one fabricated. I was unable to find an exact match from TAD and the cost for the fabrication was reasonable at $300.

Re: Exhaust Elbow

Beetle is correct. The one Perkins provides would not fit my boat so Beneteau must have used a fabricator to build it. Beneteau could not refer me to original fabricator. I have someone local that plans to build it for a reasonable price. Thoughts as to going to stainless steel? Price is almost triple!!

Re: Exhaust Elbow

colemj had said he had a local SS fabricator make a SS Exhaust Elbow for his generator out of Schedule 80 SS tubing.

SS is the way to go if you plan on keeping the boat for a while.

Re: Exhaust Elbow

We also had similar SS elbows made for our main engines.

Can you post a few pictures of the SS Exhaust elbows on your VP engines.

Did your VP factory original ones start leaking?

Re: Exhaust Elbow

I will see if I have any pics handy. I just got tired of the VP ones coking up every few years, as well as I think the design inhibits cooling water flow - and the water pump capacity is marginal as it is for this engine in the tropics. We have never had a VP elbow leak.

Re: Exhaust Elbow

Here are the elbows (two engine, generator and two connecting pieces). I don't have a pic of them installed and right now the engines are a bit unaccessible to get a pic of them installed.

Those pictures are perfect.

Gives a good idea of what would be needed to make some if needed.

Any SS fabricator seeing these pictures and knowing these where made from Schedule 80 SS pipe would be able to replicate them.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Exhaust Elbow

Thanks guys!! I found out just yesterday there is a business in Fairhope, Al that does build them. I could not locate anyone in the Pensacola area that actually builds them as a business. Surprising to me when you consider the number of businesses locally that are tied into the boating.
