Engine Anodes Perkins ST6.3544M

I can't seem to find the pencil zincs (engine anodes) on my Perkins ST6.3544M engines. They're not referenced in the manuals I have.

Anyone have any clues where to look?

Mine is on the underside of the oil cooler on the port side of the engine. You'll see a little brass cap facing straight down.

A lot of the early 6.354's had no pencil zinc in the block. Mine has one on the top of the heat exchanger and one on the bottom of the oil cooler. Nothing else in either of the blocks.

I have twin 1988 Perkins 6.354s in my Heritage East Sundeck and I too am looking for the zincs. I will check the oil coolers & heat exchangers. Thanks

Look for a 9/16th's (?) brass hex cap. on the underside of the oil cooler. Oh wait... I said that up there... Nevermind. You'll find it.

My 1991 Perkins Range 4 M200TI dont have zincs, I asked Brian from British Marine in Alameda who knows these engines better than most and he told me there are no engine zincs.
