Smile Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative

Since Perkins closed their plant in the US, parts were hard to get for many years, but recently the Caterpillar Tractor company has been the US source. I get things from the local Caterpillar dealer. Best source for advice about Perkins maintenance I found was British Marine, a dealer in California. My 1980 Perkins 4108 should last at least another 30 years...I may not last that long, since I'm a 1940 model!
