Perkins engine serial number

Perkins, as a manufacturer, has produced hundreds of different engines for years and many specifications within them, which causes a problem with the selection of parts exactly for your engine

All the necessary information is contained on the engine nameplate. Proper understanding will allow you to select the appropriate parts.

In this article, we will show you where to look and how to correctly read the engine nameplate for Perkins small and medium-sized engines manufactured after 1978

Where to find the engine nameplate


Sample plate:

The engine serial number consists of several parts. We will describe it based on the serial number from a sample plate


  • The first 2 letters are the engine family as in the example: PJ
  • The next 5 digits are the series of engines in the given family 12345
  • "U" is the letter identifying the country of manufacture of the engine
  • The next 6 digits are the unique engine number indicating the specification of this exact engine 123456
  • The last letter indicates the year of production - "P"
