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

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.

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

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.

It's NOT a Ford, its a early 1980's vintage Peugeot diesel car engine, which
was "marinized" by Lehman (no longer in business), who also "marinized"
higher horsepower Ford diesel engines.

There are a number of us who have the same engine in Albin 27 trawlers. Lots
of info and assistance available via Albin cruisers group in Yahoo.

Sounds like the engine used in the Peugeot 404, which was one of the most
reliable engines ever used in a car. Makes a noise like a tractor but almost
indestructable. Good for half a million miles in taxis.
