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.
A complete overhaul of your Perkins engine takes place very rarely. If you do decide to undertake this process, our overhaul kits have been designed to complement other parts kits offerings to ensure you have the right parts for the job.
Looked after properly and serviced in accordance with the recommended intervals, your Perkins engine will last for thousands of hours. Even with such a diligent approach, however, there may come a time when a complete overhaul is needed to extend the life of the engine.
Perkins overhaul kits, along with other complementary kits, are designed to work together to bring you the right overhaul solution. Your distributor is a good source of additional advice if you need any help in this area.
As standard, the overhaul kit will include:
Additional overhaul components are available to order according to your requirements. Once the overhaul is finished, the engine will enjoy a new lease of life with a noticeable improvement in overall performance.
