Perkins 4-108 Serpertine Belt Kit

Got tired of belt dust and squealing 105 amp alt so I am changing to a serpertine belt kit. S & W Diesel has one for $400. Engine is in pieces because of broken pushrod so it makes sense to change over. $19k was too much to spend on a Yanmar repower so I am keeping the old beast.
Question, Does the air cleaner kit make that much difference?

Wainui, send an private msg. to btrayfors. He has had one for quite a while. He has posted on here how much cleaner his engine room is since he installed the Walker Air Sep. It also decreased the oil leaks from his 4-108.

I added an air cleaner to our 4-107 and along with making the engine quieter, you can tell that it is giving the engine cleaner air by how dirty the element gets. I did not use the kit you mention so your results may be different.

Re: Perkins 4-108 Serpertine Belt Kit

I used an after market K&N filter from the local auto parts store. They are cleanable and last for life(?.) I do not remember what it's application was but it fit right over the intake manifold in place of the silly thing that is there originally. The K&N filter is about 6" in dia. and about 8" long with an inlet at one end. I later attached a length of exhaust hose to the intake manifold and moved the filter off to the side about 2' to free up some space around the engine. The only problem with this project is dealing with the engine breather connection. I moved it to the K&N filter body with a length of hose and a hose barb fitting.
