IDENTIFY PERKINS ENGINES

Categories: ENGINE | INDUSTRIAL

Today at Oryx Parts, we’re showcasing the Perkins engine identification process and providing you with a brief guide to ensure success in your repairs.

Typically, manufacturers securely attach a metal plate with engine serial numbers to the engine block. The combination of letters and numbers that make up the engine model number comprises a coded sequence that provides valuable information about its characteristics.

We can obtain information about the engine as the engine family, the number of cylinders, emissions standards, ignition type, aspiration, and more.

Depending on the year of manufacture, we obtain different sets of data.

For engines made before 1978, we can ascertain details such as capacity (in cubic inches), country of manufacture, OEM, serial number, and special features.
