Where To Get Parts For Old Westerbeke 4-107?

Greetings all:

Anybody know where I can get parts for my old warhorse four-107 Westerbeke? I believe that this engine has Perkins roots, but not sure? Torrenson sells Westerbeke parts on-line, but ouch - Expensive!
Need esoteric stuff like banjo bolts, banjo bolt copper gaskets, fuel injection bits, etc..
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Hansen Marine in Marblehead, MA is the local distributor. Oh and yes the parts will still be expensive but will get there faster than ordering from Torrensen!

It's a Perkins 4-107 internally. Pistons, rods, rings, bearings, etc. can all be purchased for a standard Perkins 4-107. The injection pump, lines, exhaust, alternator mounts and so forth are westerbeke and you don't have much choice on those.

The injectors are, thankfully, Perkins, so you can get parts directly from them.

I haven't had much luck finding cheap westie parts, either.

I've been through my Westerbeke Four One Zero Seven. There's no black magic in it. Just some expensive bits. I still haven't figured out where the gold is...I know it has to be there.

try a ford/new holland farm-construction equipment dealer.
The Perkins was pretty popular in the 4, 5 and 6000 series in the 70's and early 80's tractors, New Holland forage choppers and some Ford-NewHolland backhoes.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

My experience with Hansen Marine has been better than good. I have called them as a last resort from a marina in N. Carolina that was unable to locate a part. They knew exactly what I needed from the part number in a very outdated manual. And had it there in two days.

In short they have a great inventory and knowledgable and helpful people answering phones, if you have any question about what you actually need.

Watch out!

Wow, you dredged up an old thread!

Normally, I wouldn't reply to an old thread revival, but PLEASE do yourself a favor and search this forum for "Foley" or "Dr. Diesel" and read/heed the warnings!

Trans Atlantic Diesels is a good outfit - I have dealt with them several times since this thread started - good service, quick shipping, descent prices, but Foley - watch out!

FYI - i was looking for a rather obscure part for our ancient Perkins 4-107. Called Foley's but they didn't know what I was talking about. Called Trans Atlantic Diesels and they not only knew what it was, they had it in stock and will ship it tomorrow. And they were willing to ship USPS which is by far the least expensive to Hawaii. I am very impressed! And the price wasn't bad either. Aloha, all.
