Perkins 1000 Series Service Manual
This handbook has been written to assist you to maintain and operate your engine correctly. To obtain the best performance and the longest life from your engine, you must ensure that the maintenance operations are done at the intervals indicated in "Preventive maintenance". If the engine works in a very dusty environment or other adverse conditions, certain maintenance intervals will have to be reduced. Renew the filter canisters and lubricating oil regularly in order to ensure that the inside of your engine remains clean.
Ensure that all adjustments and repairs are done by personnel who have had the correct training. Perkins distributors have this type of personnel available. You can also obtain parts and service from your Perkins distributor. If you do not know the address of your nearest distributor, enquire at one of the Perkins companies listed on page 8.
The 1000 Series consists of a range of both four and six cylinder engines. Each range has four basic engine types, naturally aspirated, compensated, turbocharged and turbocharged with an intercooler. There are different model variations within each range. Identification of the various models is by a system of numbers and letters.
The correct identification of the engine is by the full engine number. The engine number is stamped on a label (A1) which is fastened to the left side of the cylinder block. Some engines also have the engine number stamped on the rear of the cylinder block (A2). An example of the engine number is: AB30126U510256N
If you need parts, service or information for your engine, you must give the complete engine number to your Perkins distributor. If there is a number in the area of the label marked TPL N, then this number must also be given to your Perkins distributor.
