In my opinion, the biggest issues with a 30 year old Perkins rebuild are:
1.) Too many times only a partial rebuild is done. This can be the fault of the owner or the mechanic.
2.) Finding the "right" mechanic.
3.) Having the guts to cancel the rebuild halfway into it because new issues are found and either the shop was forced to give a fixed bid, or the owner doesn't want to spend more than X.
4.) Because most parts available today are Chinese, the availability of original parts to do the job will force the use of questionable quality parts.
5.) Even if 1-4 work out perfectly for you, the same parts availability issue will haunt you after the rebuild.
I recommend the Beta 85 as the best option available for SMs.
