I believe Baker Perkins is no more. That is a travesty. No more V8-540's to grace our ears.

Andrew BAKER PERKINS built bakery equipment, PERKINS ENGINES is a different Company, they stopped making V8 engines years ago, to hear a V8 find a diesel powered Dodge or Dennis.

Thanks Pete. I bet Frank Perkins will be turning if he knew I said that. Not many Dodge's or RS/SS left in service now so it's down to the old videos I shot.

The original Perkins V8 510 was found in the Ford D1617 and D1317 fire appliance chassis, the first series of ERF appliances and contemporary Dennis F series units, while later Perkins V8s were installed in other Dennis, Dodge and Shelvoke chassis.

The six cylinder Perkins was also an option in the Dennis D series too, as an alternative to the unreliable and thirsty Jaguar 4.2 petrol offering.

So, one fire brigade station could theoretically have three different Dennises, a Ford, a Dodge and a Shelvoke in its appliance room - all with Perkins diesel engines.
