Well, it was the USCGAuxillary. I have friends in low places. I called my friend on the cell phone and he got a couple of friends to help and out they came.

Re: Perkins 4-108 1983 Fuel Pump

I have a 1984 Westerbeke 4-108. I am looking for a rebuild kit and a gasket set for the four stud lift pump. I know that many of the parts for the Perkins and Westerbeke 4-108 engines are compatible. As far as you know, is that the case with the lift pump?

I contacted Hanson Marine in Marblehead, MA and they were unable to source these parts from Westerbeke.

Any suggestions?

Re: Perkins 4-108 1983 Fuel Pump

Ed, I changed our 4 stud mechanical lift pump out entirely with a new one provided by Transatlantic Diesels and it was less than $100 I think last year. However, they probably also have the rebuild kit and they carry both Westerbeke and Perkins parts. Great service to the Caribbean. I would call though rather than email through there website as I tried that recently and did not get a reply. TAD for Perkins, Lift Pumps, Perkins Diesel Lift Pumps, Perkins Marine Diesel Parts, Perkins Engine Parts Good luck, Kim
