Did you boys get them new fitted with the perky, or has someone retro fitted it? The 3/42s here
had a BMC 3 cyl. engine fitted and it wasn't until the Leyland 245 that a perkins was fitted.

Dave the photo would have been taken 1969 as far as I can remember.

I am sure it was a perkins although time does some strange things to memorys,but if you look on the grill you can see what I
think is the Perkins badge

it is definitely fitted with 2,8 litre bmc power unit. Picture can tell it. It is turned around.

You can see casting for fuel pump gear, that is bmc and blmc type. Those bolts and casting is just same as they have. Perkins have different kind of castings (i think timing gear end is aluminium. And that is fitted with inline pump, perkins used mainly rotary type of pump. I dont think anyone had fitted old P3 engine, wich is very old fashioned type of diesel engine as bmc was that time.
