Overhauls involve work on the core of your engine – the area which isn’t touched at standard servicing. It’s a complex procedure and can include installation of new piston rings, bearings and gaskets plus boring out of the cylinders. Crankshafts and cylinder heads can either be replaced or reconditioned.
One overhaul can vary dramatically from another, depending on the areas where your engine performance is less than it was.
Overhauling an engine isn’t a simple task and there are many options to consider such as:
How quickly do you need your engine back in operation?
What is your budget?
Do you have the skills to complete an overhaul or do you need to call in an expert?
Whichever route you plan to follow, we recommend you start with a call to your local Perkins distributor. They will explain your options so your engine can be safely and effectively overhauled, ready to serve you and your machine well into the future.
