I have a boat with a Perkins D3.152 Buid spec CE33688, this has Injectors with the DELPHI code 5281620. I am trying to identify the injection nozzle number but can not find a reference.

The first thing I ask myself is why does anyone who apparently has no trade contacts need injector nozzles. I know replacing them is easy enough but the difficulty comes in setting them up and for that you need at the very least a pop/injector test rig. The nozzle is the precision part of the injector so is likely to be the most costly. As the injectors were made by CAV I put CAV 5281260 into Google and this popped out: https://www.keydiesels.co.uk/perkins-ad3-152.htm l An overhauled injector for £30 exchange. Despite my years involved with marine diesels I take my injectors to a specialist for overhaul and would not even dram of changing the nozzles myself simply because I know I can not set them up and test them adequately. I think that if you subscribe you will find the info you want here https://www.scribd.com/doc/284128144/Delphi-Pres sure

I did follow the link but it wanted my card details before access so i gave it a miss, did find another site which did give me the correct code, I don't have the means to test and set and would send them to a specialist for service.

Are you aware that the specialist may very well be able to clean and reseat your existing nozzles? I think that you would very likely be charged the same for testing & resetting injectors in which you bought & fitted new nozzles as you would for overhauling them. If the specialist you choose deals with your type of injector regularly then they will probably do them on an exchange basis so you do not have to wait for yours to be dealt with.
