1971 Perkins 6.354 water tank for heat exchanger.

I'm looking for a water tank that my heat exchanger fits into. Perkins 6.354 1971 with heat exchanger part number NA001545. Don't know the part number for the tank. Found refurbished one for $495 which seems high. Anyone have one laying around?

The type of tank that goes across the front of the engine is part # 24860114. Try Trans Atlantic Diesel.

The tank is on the side of the engine with the heat exchanger attached to it.

E. J. Bowman, Ltd. made most if not all of Perkins stuff.

Check above pdf, If it is a Bowman, you can get their US "stockists" list from their website. I use Transcool in NJ.

If its the "expansion tank" that has the radiator cap on the top, and the heat exchanger is mounted to the rear of it....generally that part has a price of about $1000.00 for a new one...but these guys have a lower price....

6-354 Perkins marine aluminum tank replacement

I wonder how they "refurbish" an aluminum expansion tank...other than to paint it?

Wow, hard to believe a small water expansion tank would cost more that the heat exchanger. Think I'll go with the bargian $495 one. Thanks all.
