The risk of using non-genuine parts

Non-genuine parts are designed using reverse engineering (copying an original component).
Manufacturers of non-genuine parts do not have access to Perkins technical data and drawings, so these parts are designed and manufactured in isolation from the rest of
the engine.

In most cases the material specification is rationalised and there is a real risk that these parts will not fit correctly. This can result in rapid wear, compromised performance, poor reliability, higher oil and fuel consumption and even component damage or engine failure. Suppliers of non-genuine parts will only provide a small range of the high-volume part numbers. They will not support the complete Perkins engine range and will not be covered by the Powerpart Warranty.
Why use genuine Perkins parts?
  • Powerpart components are designed to work together to maximise component life and engine performance.
  • Powerpart parts are designed to match the individual engine characteristics across the whole Perkins engine range, to fit first time and saving on costly downtime.
  • Powerpart parts restore optimum power and fuel efficiency and are supported by the Perkins Powerpart Warranty.
  • Hologram information.

 Watch how non-genuine parts can affect your engine performance and efficiency.


Perkins has introduced a new hologram to its parts packaging, which came into effect in August 2011, and is now in circulation. ** Created using the most up to date technology, the hologram protects its customers from counterfeit and non genuine products.

Perkins continues to support its global distributor network with the latest back-up, parts supply and technical assistance.

** Please note: the previous hologram will continue to be in use until all stock is rotated, due to the large volumes, this means the old hologram may still be in the marketplace for some time to come.
