Manuals for Perkins Diesel Engines

(including Perkins Perama and Perkins Sabre)

Perkins Ltd. was founded in Peterborough, England by Frank Perkins and Charles Wallace Chapman in 1932. Its legendary 6.354 diesel engine started production in 1960, the year after the company was bought by Massey Ferguson, and continued until 1996.  By then more than one million 6.354 engines had been built in Peterborough.  Perkins was bought by Caterpillar in 1998.

3 simple steps to make your diesel system reliable and robust

STEP ONE  - Get the manuals for your equipment

Owner, Workshop and Parts Manuals are important documents that should be part of every vessel's library. They contain the detailed information necessary for safe operation, maintenance and correct servicing.  

The manuals on this page are provided for public information and education and can be downloaded for free.  All copyrights belong to copyright holders stated in the documents.

congratulations - by downloading these free manuals you are taking an important step towards making your engine more reliable and robust.


 

STEP TWO - regular maintenance

Simple, regular maintenance is the easiest, quickest and cheapest way to avoid problems and accelerated engine wear. Most expensive repairs start from a lack of basic maintenance or ignoring small warnings. The work is not difficult - it just needs to be done.

The purpose is so that we can enjoy our boat for all the reasons we bought her. Trust yourself. Do the work regularly and be methodical.
