Perkins 4-107 Oil Filter

Gerald Astrella and Cathy Calisch

I am missing the "element support plate" and "centralizer plate" located inside the filter container. The result is that the filter element lies on the botton of the container and does not do it's job. Perkins no longer has these parts available. Any suggestions? Boat "wrecking yard", etc.?

I changed mine some time ago, and went to a remote filter addapter kit.

It is highly recomended.

I think they are still available (i have the Westerbeke 4-107 same as the perkins Kind of.

I got mine through Golden state desiel in Oakland CA.

Best of luck

Thanks Norm. That seems to be the direction I am heading. Sure would make the filter change easier and less messy.
