Gearbox Oil Cooler for Perkins M92

I just got word from the local Perkins dealer that the heat exchangers on this model are no longer made. The company was wound up a couple of years back. I was looking to purchase the rubber boot on the port side of the engine. It acts as an elbow and reducer both. It goes from 2 inches down to I believe 1.25 inch. Anyone know if these kind of boots are easily obtained. I hate to buy a whole new exchanger and then have to replumb the thing when all I need is a boot, Because of my engine room layout I can not easily make the corner after a straight through fitting.

Cheers

It doesn't seem to have a brand on it. And the drawing looks exactly like that in the manual. So that it why I thought it was a Perkins part. I bought the engine 1995 if that helps. I know the water pump is Jabsco but it also didn't seem to have a brand name on it but luckily the type number matched Jabsco so I ordered a spare from them directly.

Still can not find any number but here is a pick. It is the rubber endcap on the left side of photo that has the bad leak.

If leaking between boot end and cooler body try trimming expaned end off allowing boot move further on, this works well on similiar coolers.

That is probably a good idea. Better than the one if you look closely is self amalgumating tape wrapped several times around and the hose clamp over that. I tried a bigger hose and an elbow but blew the elbo out. Didn't thing the pressure was so great. should have know better by the amount of water that comes through the back. I would like to get the right part however for long term fix. I have also bought a 2 inch "L" hose that I can cut and hopefully rig a reducer to the pump hose.

E J Bowman are the biggest company in UK doing all types of coolers. I know they have the boots you are aloooking for

Bowman - Manufacturers of Heat Exchangers & Oil Coolers

They are based in birmingham and probably took over serck as they did with Polar a few years ago. Nice peeps to deal with.
They are used to helping mariners all round the world

Thanks guys for all the help. I just looked at the bowman website and they look to have what I want though I am afraid on one dimension so I will have to call them. I will try Nigel first Benetau-500 as you seem to think that we have the same engine. At least having two possible soloutions should help me out and Shakey Doug's suggestion should keep me sailing until I can get the parts

Check out this Bowman page. It shows three boots shaped like yours with different dimentions. http://www.ejbowman.co.uk/pdf/dc-oil.pdf

Yes Randal that is the link Anjou gave me that gives me great hope. It looks to me that the caps for the DC 50 versions C and F are perfect but I want to talk to some one over the phone.

I didn't notice you were at Raffles. I'm across the channel from you at Puteri Harbour. I've spent most of the afternoon identifying my ZF oil cooler which is a Bowman DC60. I want to order one as a spare and some extra boots too. I found a distributor in Singapore at Kim Huat Engineering Pte. Ltd.
I sent them an email this afternoon requesting information about my needs. You can measure your oil cooler and compare it with the measurements on their web site to determine which cooler you have and then you can figure out which boot you need.
