Have a question maybe MF UK guys can enlighten me on. Had a 1150 MF awhile that was at Rolling Prarie IN progress show in 1970 when new. Would like to know what year 510 V-8 was started. First one I saw was in a MUIR-HILL tractor at IN state fair, not sure what year. Just curious about V-8 history. Thanks, Rich.

I believe the V8s were used in marine applications. I met a Norwegian that had a boat, that he raced offshore, with twin 540s in it.

Have seen injection specs for V-8 605 along with others that were brought to US, but have never a 605. Also have never seen a 6.305 in US MF equipment, but is popular in UK in several tractor models. Has anyone ever seen a Perkins history book, maybe by John Farnworth or other author, would like to find one if available.

Was there a 605 V8 that never made it to North America?
