Has ANYONE herd from PorFin? His last post was 8-12-2013, and his last login was 9-6-2013... It has been too long.

I tried a PM yesterday.. no response. Curious, and sad. Hope he's OK.

Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative

Don't you all worry.

He's fine, just has other things in his life than keeping us happy here! Its quite good that he managed to get that much time to devote to this project without someone figuring out he had spare time to do other chores around the house!

Did the door, the living room floor and a few others. Hes fine, just busy!

Porfin, just take the time you need, most of us have nothing better to do that wait for the rest of the story, so no pressure ;-)

But maybe a "I'm still busy at other stuff" kind of message so that we know you are still alive !!

Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative

Wow, what a great project. My 4.108 has a slow main bearing leak, so I will be in partial rebuild mode soon I think.

Does anyone know the maker of the great-looking alternator tension fitting that Porfin has used here? I have never see one like this before.

But then again, I don't get out much.

Thanks!

I did the same modification to my 4-108, but took it down to the starboard engine mount flange so as not to have to shorten the tie rods. let me know if you need more info.

cheers
