Considering repowering your Perkins 4.108 with something more modern? Maybe even a Yanmar or a Volvo? Most people like their 4.108 for its easy parts availability, quiet running, and rugged construction, but there are a couple of nagging issues with the 4.108 that make a new, more modern engine an attractive option worth considering. An attractive option that is until you hear the $17,000 price for the engine plus the cost of changing the motor mounts, re-routing the exhaust and the overall labor charge to install the engine.
So, we’ve come up with a special version of the Perkins 4108 engine, called Not Your Father’s 4108 that incorporates a package of significant upgrades designed to propel the 4108 into the 21st century. These upgrades include a serpentine belt system, a more powerful alternator, and our proprietary rear seal to stop the chronic leaks, an improved fuel injection system, and a spin on secondary fuel filter.
Our Not Your Father’s 4108 remanufactured engine compares favorably at 1/3 the cost of Yanmar or Volvo. Specifically, the Not Your Father’s 4108 include the following innovative features to bring your engine up to present day standards.
1) Full serpentine belt system with Rockwell- hardened pulleys.
2) Spin on fuel filter to replace the hard to bleed, cartridge-style secondary fuel filter
3) A 105 amp alternator to replace the weak 37 amp alternator
4) Our special improved rear crankshaft seal to cure the chronic rear seal leaking problems
5) An optimized fuel injection system for better fuel delivery, easier starting, and more power
6) An optional remote mount oil filter complete with hoses and larger oil filter from a 6 cylinder Perkins
The Not Your Father’s 4.108 program is a factory remanufactured engine exchange program. You get immediate shipment and firm upfront, no surprise pricing. The engine has all new internal parts, all the wearing surfaces have been re-machined, and the engine has been dyno-tested. The engine is complete with the fuel injection system and most other components.
We will ship you our factory remanufactured Not Your Father’s 4.108 engine so you can have it side by side with your old 4108 during the installation. After you install our engine, just call our shipping department and we can arrange to pick up your old engine for its return to us and your core refund.
Your cost is just $8995, exchange for your old 4.108, plus freight. There is a core deposit of $4000 until you turn in the old engine (in rebuildable condition). The optional remote mount oil filter system is an additional $295.
