Dear Mr. Potter,

Thank you for the helpful information. The engine seems ok a t this point. I
definitely need new motor mounts and some seals.

The Max Prop settings are great. Thank you. Do you happen to know to much
rpm this engine should go up to under full forward power?

Dear Mr. Reich,

Is your Perkins engine in need of a re-build? I have a very

Prima/M80 Turbo with green paint. When Caterpillar bought
Perkins, initially they stopped Perkins from retail
marketing and instead focused on supplying other
manufacturers. Volvo marketed the Prima/M80T for several

Anyway, I have one in a warehouse that was removed from a
Super Maramu because of a recurrent rear oil pan seal
failure where oil would leak out slowly. This has been
fixed. I would be willing to sell it for a lot less than a
rebuild. It has less than 500 hours, can't remember exactly
but I have it written down on the engine.

The MAX PROP numbers follow:
560 m.m

Consult your MAX PROP manual if this reads like Greek to
