Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative
I started my 4107 after it had been sitting on the hard for several years, after being neglected for many more before that while in the water. Did just what you propose - gave it a thorough service, oil, filters, belts, hoses, fuel, pumps, coolers etc. It fired right up and chugged exactly as it should.
Those engines are about as close to indestructible as any engine out there.
Before & after pics attached to give you an idea of how far it had sunk before I started on it.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
