Default Perkins engine help

Had an engine running rough, down on power. Pulled the rocker cover, found broken valve spring and bent valve.
Pulled head, had it reworked/fixed.
Putting it back together, found that the rocker shaft oil feed tube seal that is inserted into the heads oil feed pocket was bad and leaking around said tube.
Not having a Head gasket set I'm looking for an alternative to seal the head pocket to shaft oil feed tube. Piece of fuel line or off the shelf seal assortment should suffice.

After the engine was back together it is running beautifully. Just need more oil to that tower to finish
It will survive.

Jef. Is this the three cylinder perk. and what year ?? you could possibly get away with a valve stim seal I have some extra gaskets an seals from a 3cyl. build I can look and see if I have any seals left from the set....
I do also have a spare perfect crank shaft that is STD. and possible the new bearing set. but then again all depends on year model...
also a good source to find gaskets and other parts for the perkins is yesterdaystractor

well guess I cant help ya on the 4 cylinder all the Perkins left overs are for the 3 cylinder perk's
isn't that oil feed tube fitted to the outlet hole in the head and can you not reform the fit with something like an expander tool for copper tubing ??or depending on how bad it is jacked cut and reweld a tighter fitting piece of steel tubing if the feeder line to the valve train is steel as the three cylinder is steel feeder tube.

Metalwolf,

I’m looking for a crank for a Perkins 103-10 engine if you have one. I think the engine is about 2005.

If yours is suitable I will start a new thread on rebuilding the engine.

Thanks

Rob

Crank I have is for the AD3 152 Perkins with the one piece rear main seal
will not work for the 100 series Perkins....

Perkins are nice little engines and there are lots of kits and parts offered on line for cheap as far as rebuild kits other than the cranks and cams last I can remember those parts are not made in the US.
if you need a crank it would be best to look online for one or if you can have yours turned if it not damaged to bad.... an if locating one is not do able for a reasonable cost.

Most of the perk parts I have left over are pre 1975

Thanks for the info.

The crank in my engine is snapped clean into two pieces. I have looked at it long and hard and thought about welding it but so far common sense has prevailed.

Sorry to have ambushed your thread.

Have you sorted your oil pipe problem?

Could you maybe slide a plastic ferrule over it and secure it with some sort of adhesive?https://www.zoro.com/parker-sleeve-p...-4/i/G0443064/

That is for sure not a good idea there are to many issues that will arise and will prolly brake again and then trash the rest of the engine... usually when a crank is welded up it's to repair a main or rod journal not so much to weld one back together.

The Perkins shop/house had the seals on the shelf. Problem solved and engine was running by 8 this am. Good oil flow up top. Buttoned up and in use by 10.

A good day.
