There are kits for almost everything if you know the secrets, which are the make and model for the same engine in different applications. My Westerbeke W-52, an '80s engine, is not only also a Perkins 4-135, but a Mazda R2 diesel found in hundreds of thousands of B2200 and Ford Ranger light pickups until 1990 or so. There must be 100,000 of these engines still running in Australia alone, where they were the utility vehicle of choice, it seems, for 20 years.
I am pretty sure the 4-107 also went into tractors and other applications, and a rebuild kit for "other" will likely be cheaper by far than that for "marine".
