Default NEED INFO ON FORD/PEUGEOT LEHMAN 4D61 OR 4D46 DIESEL ENGINE

wrote
I am considering the purchase of a Norseman 447 with a circa 1981 Ford
Lehman (made I underfstand by Peugeot) 4D46 or 4D61 diesel engine
(hours unknown). It is connected to a Borg Warner V-drive. Can
anyone help me with observations about the reliability or
maintainability or parts availability of this engine/transmission?



You can get any parts you want for it, up to and including a whole new
engine. The Ford Lehman is very well supported.

I have a similar ford, 6 cylinder in line 120 hp made it thru 18000 hours,
still in the boat after its last rebuild. Good reliable motor.


Agreed. We have only had ours for a couple hundred hours but it is a
very impressive engine. I've never heard any complaints about it's
reliability and the reputed longevity is about the highest of any diesel.
