Question Perkins parts

I need a turbo and mixing elbow for a Perkins 165 hp turbo in good condition. Does anyone have one or have a good source for reconditioned parts.

Try Trans Atlantic Diesel. When we had a Perkins they were the go to company.

TAD for Perkins Engine Parts, Perkins Diesel Parts, Perkins Powerparts, Perkins Diesel Engine Parts

I don't know that TAD does used or reconditioned. But talk to Sherri there - she may have some thoughts.

I monitor Cruisers Forum.com, sister site to this. There was a recent thread looking for a head for a Perkins 4.154 that a couple folks responded to who sounded like they have spare parts. Not sure if something in your size, but wouldn't hurt to view. One such parts person was 2dogsfishin@gmail.com. I don't know him from Adam, but he might have something or know someone who does.

Good luck.

National Marine Exhaust in Marysvill, WA. nationalmarineexhaust.com built SS exhaust elbows for Perkins T63544 for a previous boat and clients. Theirs flow the water more efficiently reducing hot spots. They use the correct materials to weld the seams, which was the shortcoming of the OEM elbow.

Check out any farm equipment outfit. There are hundreds of thousands of those engines on farms. In Canada farm equipment get s 30% subsidy so parts are dramatically cheaper at those places.

The three suppliers I think of are

-- TAD Diesel: TAD for perkins engines, perkins diesel, perkins marine, perkins parts, perkins generators, perkins service
-- S & W Diesel: https://www.swdieselinc.com/
-- Foley Engine: https://www.foleyengines.com/

I didn’t have the best experience with Foley. Hopefully things have improved but I’d check for recent reviews.

My experience with Foley was not good at all. It was however about 15 years ago. See if there are current reviews.

I've had recent experience with TAD and S&W and both have been excellent.

OEM Perkins elbows, if still available, would be expensive. And the corrosion at the welds is still an issue with OEM.

I suspect places like S&W and TAD, etc, make their own elbows these days or buy them from a 3rd party.

I totally agree, I recommend staying away from Foley.

The wet elbow can be fabricated there are several places around that can do that.
Is the turbo dry or coolant cooled?
Turbos can easily be adapted.
