Re: Perkins 4.108 help

Ended up just sailing home. Now that I'm back I'm going to let a proper mechanic figure it out. I'll update with what we find out.

Re: Perkins 4.108 help

Please let us know what you find. I've always loved those engines and troubleshooting is always fun (not for the owner but for the crowd).
kind regards,

Re: Perkins 4.108 help

Turned out to be a failed main bearing. Rebuilding now.

Failed main bearing is a hard one to fix. Sorry for that.

Re: Perkins 4.108 help

Sorry to hear about the main bearing failing. Just curious... How many hours does the engine have on it?
