New life for your engine with a Perkins overhaul

If your faithful engine has served you for many years, but isn’t working as well as it used to, now may be the time to consider an engine overhaul.
An overhaul will extend your engine’s life for many more years and return performance to new, or nearly new, conditions – a much better return on investment than trading in for a new machine.   

What does an overhaul involve?

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. 


What type of overhaul is best for my engine?

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?
