Perkins 4.154 Replacement

Thinking about replacing the 4.154 in our Morgan Out Island 41. Anyone replaced an engine in this model? If so how is it done?

Re: Perkins 4.154 Replacement

Check out sv Sleeper he just had one done on his. But not back in the water yet for another couple weeks. I know he's on facebook in the various Morgan owners groups. He went with the Cummins 4b3.3m that trans atlantic diesel sells.

Blue Highway, do you know how much (if any) changes had to be made to the engine beds to fit the Cummins????? ____Grant.

Re: Perkins 4.154 Replacement

I don't know but here's the number of the mechanic that just installed it. Michael of Yacht Power Products (727)822-2628 usually he is reachable from 8:30 to 9:30. This company is in St. Petersburg FL.

I don't know Morgan's too well so you might make double sure that Sleeper is the same model as yours. Or if not make sure the engine rails are the same.

Best of luck, Russell

I guess there could be variations. I replaced a 4154 with a cummins 4b3.3 from TAD. Required no modification to the beds. See beta vs cummins thread .
I think highly of the beta because so many others have said so. TAD is excellent and I am sure if they want the sale they can provide you with specific advice. I did not have to jack or modify anything to get it to sit in a position that allowed for great alignment.
I think the water intake is lower on the cummins then the Perkins. Exhaust runs and everything were near the same. Still I used all new hose lift muffler etc......
