Perkins 4.108

Hi Gents & Ladies,

I've recently acquired an Endurnace 35 with a Perkins 4.108 engine, it has been sitting in the water for 4 years. Can anyone give me advice on how to get a copy of the manual for the Perkins 4.108 along with the gear box manual.

Or where I might purchase such items

Thanks

Re: Perkins 4.108

Try ebay. Also these engines were in many tractors, ran generators and industrial uses. The only big difference is the injector pump and whatever it's driving (transmission, generator, pump).

Re: Perkins 4.108

Here's another question !!! not sure where on the planet people are on these thread's but il looking for a hard stand and a yard were I can work on the boat the location of the boat is in Civitavecchia Rome, Italy I believe if you go South of the airport Fiumicino there is some yards along the river

Re: Perkins 4.108

I have an original 4.108 manual. It is hard to read. It covers more than one motor type. It has pictures of every model except the one I have. Or it shows multiple pictures and you have to figure out which one applies to you.

I've attached three pdf docs I have for you though, including one for the CAV fuel pump. You may have another one. Good luck.

Re: Perkins 4.108

The pdf files are way too big for the forum uploads. Send me a private message with your email and I will send them to you.
