Re: Perkins 4.108

Hi, I was in fact referring to the freshwater pump, good to know about the other as well. Parts 4 Engines looks like the perfect source.

Re: Perkins 4.108

James,

It occurred to me you may have been referring to the raw water pup and not the fresh water pump.

My comments and parts number are for the fresh water pump (i.e. the belt driven pump on the alternator side of the block.)

If you had the raw water pump in mind (i.e., the Jabsco or Sherwood, located right under the Bowman heat exchanger/header tank), then rebuild kits are in fact available.

All the best,
PF

Ditto HyLyte's rec of Transatlantic Diesel -- Sheri Moon is good people, and they are a great source for parts and info.

A few other sources:

Parts4Engines: Perkins Diesel Engine Overhaul Kits and Spares is an on-line retailer in the UK. They stock a smaller supply of parts, but sometimes they are way less expensive (like for the Bowman heat exchanger rubber end caps.)

Stewart's Marine, Inc in Seattle.

Check locally for agricultural/industrial diesel dealers. The 4.108 was used in many skid steers (Massey-Ferguson, Bobcat, etc.) a few tractors, and also to drive agricultural irrigation pumps. Many of the basic engine parts are the same.

As far as your water pump goes, rebuild kits are no longer available. You need to order a new pump (part number U5MW0054.) Think ahead on this one. Getting the pulley off of the old pump without breaking it is the key. Getting the new pulley back on is best done with a shop press so you can get it perfectly aligned with the crank pulley. You may want to consider biting the bullet and buying another pulley and have it pressed on and ready to install should you need to swap out the pump away from a garage.

I would like to put together a set of spares, ie waterpump rebuild kit, hoses etc. My local national distributor is not very interested in an engine of this age despite acknowledging that there are a lot out there.

Thankyou
