Re: [Amel] Engine equivalencies - Perkins M80T and Volvo TMD22P?


John is very correct. Sherry is a wizard with this stuff. Don't call her for
information and then spend your money elsewhere. It is valuable to support
this resource because when you need it, then it's priceless.

All the best,

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. There phone number is 804-6429296 John "Moon Dog" SM248

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.

Hello -
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.
