Re: westerbeke identification

If you go to the Torreson website (sp), a W/beke dealer, and scroll down, you will find all the manuals. You may be able to match by appearance.

Re: Westerbeke Identification

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, cargillfarm.

From the Westerbeke FAQs page:
ď... 6. How do I know what engine/generator model I have?
It is difficult to determine what parts you need without knowing the unit's model number. If you canít figure out what model it is by referencing the identification tags on the engine then at minimum, the serial number is required. If you donít know or canít find the model number be prepared with as much information as possible when you contact your distributor. Photographs of the unit are often a good way to help determine the model number...Ē
