Perkins 4108 Fuel Injection Pump

Hello!

Just prior to my relaunch I discovered my CAV Fuel Injection Pump leaking on my Perkins 4108. Further investigation revealed the top 'anti-stall device' has broken off after a previous repair (with liquid metal?).

Obviously my preference is to replace the whole pump... any ideas where I can get one cheap? But I'm also thinking of bodging the current one to carry as a spare and any tips would be gratefully accepted.

Many thanks!

Parts4Engines is a fab company, I admit, but Jeremy doesn't have any Cav pumps in stock. I'm in the UK and have discovered a diesel engine dealer in the SW who stocks the anti-stall device.
I just removed the heat exchanger to get to the part and will pick up the 30 replacement asap.

Re: Perkins 4108 Fuel Injection Pump

For most Perkins engines it is almost always best to check with tractor supply places since more Perkins are used in industry than in boats , and the parts are usually cheaper than if the box says Marine on it. My 2 cents worth.____Grant.

Re: Perkins 4108 Fuel Injection Pump

Try giving Diesel Fuel Injection Service in Portland, OR a call. Mark is very knowledgeable and can perform a proper repair to the anti-stall portion instead of a full rebuild.

Here is their URL.

They do a lot of marine pumps. I haven't specifically used them for Perkins, but it's a very common pump and there is no reason they can't service it. Their work is top notch and their pricing is fair. I have visited their facility and was beyond impressed with their knowledge, capabilities, and equipment.
