Re: Predatory Volvo Parts Pricing

The VP D2-40 engine is based on the Perkins/ISM 404-15 series industrial engine. Early models of the D2-40 were based on the 404c series, and then changed to the 404d when Perkins replaced the c with the d. Major differences are in the combustion chamber design and the governor, changes Perkins made to meet emission requirements in the US and Europe. Visually the front of the governor case above the sea water pump is flat on the C version and rounded on the D version, plus the C version has oil fill on the valve cover only, and the D has oil fill on both the valve cover and the timing case.

All the marineization is designed by VP and built/ installed in the UK Perkins factory. Electrical systems are Volvo spec except for the glow plugs and starter.

Thank you DougR, nice to confirm the 3 hours of reading Internet tea leaves. Couple related questions: 1) best (price) online to source 404-15 Perkins parts in Americas, Europe and South Pacific? 2) can you confirm the Kohler 6EOD as Perkins GH65783J? (Slightly off thread so can private message as well). Thx. Rand
