Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative
Speaking of cylinder liners, I was told by a diesel mechanic that long haul truckers use a heavy duty antifreeze rather than the green/yellow regular stuff that I've been using for years since the heavy duty stuff had more corrosion protection. Not knowing at the time whether my 4-108 had wet or dry liners, I removed the anti freeze and replaced it with the heavy duty stuff being careful to flush the system well. I then learned that I had dry cylinder liners and the change out was really not necessary. Don't suppose it hurt....my 2 cents.
