Re: Perkins 50 hp with Limited Revs

Hi. This is an old post I started A while ago but thought that allot of the info can still be relavent as it shows the engine type ect.
So. I was hoping someone could put together a short list on what I need to do to service this motor myself.
For egsample
- Change oil and Filter (I think it takes about 5.6 litres of oil?
- Fuel system? not exactly shore whats needed here.
- Gear box? I think I will be changing the oil? Not shore what else is require.

The engine was fully serviced last year and is due for its 100 hour service. I would like to learn to do it myself, I have the tools and can buy the parts but would like a list to work with so I don't miss anything?

Thanks Jeff.
