    Hi guys, I've got a problem, hoping somebody can help me with. A rod went throught the block of my 1977 Allis Chalmers backhoe engine. I'm looking for a replacement. It is a 248 4 cylinder diesel perkins. Anybody have one or know were I can get one? I was told that a 236 block is the same, only have to put new sleeves in it? Thanks for the help:confused:

    I just had a Perkins 4 cylinder gas engine rebuilt in one of my forklifts. I have a couple of sources at work that I can post later that may be of some help. Jake.

    Everett, Here is one site that has a lot of information and may be of some help. www.foleyengines.com
    I can't seem to come up with the other company's site. I'm still trying though. Good luck. Jake.
