I have a Perkins...

I have a Perkins 4.108 that is seized up. I am taking it out to rebuild. Can I just take the engine apart at the bell housing and leave the transmission intact

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Perkins 4.108. 1987 49hp.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. The thing is that partially taken apart. The head is off. And I need to take the engine out

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Equipment Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Can I just take the engine apart at the bell housing and leave the transmission alone

the engine is in a sailboat so I don't want to take out anything I don't have to
Technician: JoshD429, Heavy Truck/Equipment Mechanic replied 1 year ago

I don’t know what transmission/drive you have but  as long as you are able to pull it straight forward you should be ok.They are usually mated with a coupler of sort so they can be removed separately.

What is your application exactly?
