Hi there Jean Pierre
I am already in contact with them; quick response, they are already checking availability.
They have all to rebuild cylinders, only the camshaft & oïl pump which seem to be hard to find.
thanks for tip

Hi Christian,

I have had very good service from in the UK.  

I visited their warehouse and they have an extensive supply of components for Perkins and Volvos.

Good luck.

I am looking for repair parts to rebuild the Perkins 60 HP diesel engine on Désirade VIII - Maramu N° 116 built 1982.
The engine gave up on me in Tenerife, went in a cloud of smoke as DO went down & mixed with lube oïl, due to faulty oïl pump (worn out - loss of oïl pressure) . 
I sourced suppliers to rebuild cylinder head & blocks, but have difficulty finding a replacement camshaft & tappets, as well as a lube oïl pump. 
I am now looking for one old Perkins M 4.154, laid up somewhere in the world (as close as possible to Europe would be best) to purchase & use for parts, then refit as spare, as I feel more confident to rebuild & run an old engine than to go for the new generation, driven by computers, to sail in out of the main sea-routes.
Interested to hear from you all who did replace your engines.
Fair winds (as I hope to return to the same)
