    I have just purchased a 6354 perkins and it is missing the trans/eng. oil cooler.
    Can anyone send photo's tell me how this is hooked up? Is there a pump that hooks up on the port side of the engine?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There are many variants of the 6.354 series Perkins. I suggest you get your engine's serial # and contact Trans Atlantic Diesels http://www.tadiesels.com/

    We are powered by 6.354.4 aboard Samadhi, and it's a great (huge massive and heavy) engine :)

    If you have the turbo model, I would get the turbo seals replaced.

    The loss of the seals will eat the engine oil in a few seconds , and cause the engine to lock up.

    The rebuild is more expensive than a replacement engine , just for parts.
