WTB Perkins 4-108 injectors

Good Morning,

I wasn't sure where to post this so I decided to post it in classifieds. We are trying to find a good place to order new injectors for our Perkis 4-108. We want to replace the current ones and get them rebuilt for spares. We live 150 miles for our boat in La Conner , WA and thought maybe someone could direct us to a good source for injectors and a place to get our old ones rebuilt.

Our engine produces more white smoke than I think it should and we'd like to remedy that. It is not blue smoke, does not use oil and does not smell like oil. It has a lilttle hint of diesel smell to the smoke which leads me to think it is an injector issue. But, I AM NOT AN ENGINE GURU. Everthing I have read, Calder, Compton and others, points me towards injectors.

So I thought I'd start with locating a source for them.

I'll post the engine diagnostic stuff in the Engine forum as well.

Thanks,

Our last boat had a Perkins 4-108. We had better service and attitude with TAD (Trans Atlantic Diesel, Inc.). TAD for perkins engines, perkins diesel, perkins marine, perkins parts, perkins generators, perkins service

Their customer service/communications was excellent.

I have had good service from Northland Diesel in Bellingham, 360 676-1970. They can rebuild your injectors and probably get you a spare.
