I'm looking for a Perkins 4108 starter motor if anyone has one either working or not please contact me, many thanks.

P.S i know it's a long shot as these are getting hard to come by !!.

Tried
Richardson @ Stalham.
Wayford Bridge (sadly Jons left/given the push i dont know)
Bridge Stores St Olaves.
and many more boat yards in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Perkins 4108 or 4107 possibly.

3 stud inertia drive possibly an M45G LRS160.

I know they have them for sale on Ebay new, but i cant afford that kind of money !!

Have a word with Boulders at Horning. They had a 4108 starterrefurbished for me. For whatever reason it was way cheaper than an exchange recon one. Was about 8 years ago but no reason for things to have changed. Was only away for a couple of days

I may have misunderstood your request and have assumed you have a faulty one which of course may not be the case

Hi Underway Are you sure it's an inertia starter most unusual for a diesel more likely a pre engaged type for diesels, most inertia are two stud/bolt pre engage are mostly three stud /bolt.Both are easy to refurbish just take to a auto electrician for a refurbish. Just a thought why do you think you want a new starter, what are your systems,if it just clicks when starter button pushed all it needs providing not a dirty terminal, is a relay that sits on top providing its pre engage of cause if it just hums/spins just needs a clean on inertia slide,have you checked the earth strap?, have you tried to give it a thump with a lump of wood when you hit the starter button! if it then works just needs a clean and dry lubrication on shaft.

'Afternoon, underway ....

As Gordon mentioned, give Sonny Boulter a call on 01692 630498 - I think you'll find he has both new and not working Perkins 4108 starter motors in at present.

Good luck.

Steve.

Hi Underway I have just had a phone call from my parts supplier and mentiand your starter problem and he confirmed that a LRS 160 is a pre engaged starter and are still available from a firm in Basildon,they only deal with the trade,may be that's where Boulter's get theres from, if not local go to your local auto electricians who can deal with them.John
