24V Conversion Progresses

Iskra 24V Starter Motor, replacement for our Perkins supplied 12V Starter.
I have made some good progress with the 24V conversion, Having finally got hold of part numbers from Perkins for the 24V parts required for our engine (Why they couldn't supply it 24V in the first place sill baffles me!). I started by getting a quote from Perkins, the Starter was £350 and the ESOS was £100! Unfortunately the part numbers were Perkins numbers, so the exact make/models were not know, however, I thought a google search would be worth a shot.. bingo! I found the starter was made by Iskra. A couple of phone calls later and I got a price of £260 for the starter and £80 for the ESOS, but why stop there! I found a number for the Iskra distributor and phoned them up, got the starter for £120!!! bargain! Now how can Perkins justify £350??

As I struggled to get any information out of Perkins to convert my engine, I thought I should publish my findings here, to aid others who may wish to do the same. I should point out that these part numbers worked for me and fitted my engine, check your part numbers and engine type, they may be different!
