Volvo penta 2002 vs perkins 103.06 direction of rotation


Im swaping my old volvo penta 2002 for perkins 103.06 and im afraid i need to change the propeler due to the change of rotation

In volvo penta manual there is no mention about rotation while the manual for perkins 103.06 i dont have and cant find on internet.

However, in the manual for perkins 100 series in found that rotation is Clockwise, view from front.
- but my 103.06 is in the list so im not sure

Thanks a lot for advices, tomas

Re: Volvo penta 2002 vs perkins 103.06 direction of rotation

According to these guys, rotation is clockwise from the front.

SECODI PERKINS - Perkins 103-06 engine - Technical features

And according to my Volvo service manual, the MD2010, 20, 30 and 40 are all clockwise from the front. (They're all based on different ISM/Perkins 103 series engines)

And according to Volvo the 2002 is also clockwise from the front.

So you should be good....
