It has been noted on this forum many times, that Trans Atlantic Diesel in Virginia can get any part for your Volvo or perkins. Sherry, the number one lady there knows all there is to know about what parts on the 2 engines that can be interchanged. This is important because the Volvo parts are more expensive.

Hi we have had two Amels one Perkins one Volvo TMD22 both have worked well without issue. Being in the marine business we have not had issues in getting parts.

In assessing pre-Yanmar Super Maramus, I'm unclear if the earlier Perkins M80T and the later Volvo TMD22P, are the same or different? I've read that the Perkins is an orphan, so should be wary, in particular, for parts availability; and that the Volvo parts can be spendy and hard to come by. Experiences please.
Thank you very much for your answers and advice.
