Perkins Range 4 T6-354-4

Not to sound cheap (well, guess I can be) but I am looking for the 90 degree "can" as TAD calls it) that exits the turbo and turns up to clamp the wet exhaust elbow to. Mine uses 4 hold down nuts and has a flange on other side.

TAD (and others) are over $500 and it's tax time and I owe this year.

Just need a decent used part that will last me a year or so and then I can update to a new part.

Willing to pay fair price and shipping.

Thank you.

If TAD has one you might want to buy it. According to their website, that part is not made anymore.

I just replaced that piece a few months ago. I had zero finding a part that was not a new fabrication. I ended up getting mine from National Marine Exhaust in Marysville, Wa.

Yep, impossible to find used.
National Marine Exhaust quoted me $435 with a 2 week wait to built last week. It is a savings, so may go that route.
Thank you for the replies.

I was tracing down an exhaust leak the last time I had the boat out, as I smelled diesel exhaust in the salon. After looking closely, I pulled the insulator wrap off the starboard exhaust elbow and this is what I found. The port side has already been replaced prior to my purchase 2.5 years ago along with a new wet elbow.
I have attached 2 pics, maybe not too good.

Dosn't look that bad Id be thinking of getting it built up with weld and grinding
it back a bit to clean it up should be good for 10 years ?

I have to throw a new gasket in mine in the next few days. I'll snap a pic when I have the lagging removed.

I'm with Gaston. Might be able to get it fixed for a few dollars -or a carton of beer!

I am more of a motorcycle/car tech type than a diesel boat doctor. I thought it looked pretty bad, but you guys have much more experience than I and a valid point. I will get it off and have a good welding/fab shop take a look at it. I appreciate the input and will let you know the outcome. Thanks.

Question for those familiar with this piece: Does the flange on this elbow have the identical thickness of the wet elbow flange? I would assume so, so that the clamp will be able to properly pull/secure them together. To have a shop be able to properly repair, this would be important to verify. Thanks!

Had a stainless steel elbow made here in ft Lauderdale for $850.00. Will try to sent pics. Has collar around elbow so any angle is possible included wraps/gaskets.

Mine had come apart at the gasket/flange between the two elbows,after removing it for repairs on the trans.

When I bought my boat, a fellow boater in the area gave me a used, but great condition spare stainless elbow from his boat which he sold. The only problem with it is the angle of the 4" output side. It angles nearly straight down, where mine needs to be at a 45 degree angle. I'm sure if the welder can fix the flange side of the turbo's output, this will also be an easy modification.

When time permits, get the part off and to a couple of welding shops and see what they can do. Have to cut the nuts off all 4 studs, as they are too rusted on and I don't want to break a stud off in the turbo housing.
