Westerbeke parts

After months of disappointments I have found a great place to get Westerbeke parts.
Trans Atlantic Diesels
I sent my cooling water pump to a rebuild place in Oregon but after over a month they could not find a new bearing for it. I even bought one (a pump) from Canada but it ended up being the wrong one.
Finally I found TAD and gave them a call; they had a pump on the shelf and could also rebuild mine. I sent mine in and got it back in less than a month. The cost was over a hundred dollars cheaper than any other place I had tried.

Re: Westerbeke parts

Thanks for the info.
As a sidebar, stay with OEM parts. I use Westerbeke labeled oil filters only...don't ask me why (its in the archives!

Re: Westerbeke parts

In case you didn't know, Westerbeke does not make their own blocks but buys them from other companies like Perkins or Mitsubishi then adds the marine parts, paints them red can calls them Westerbeke.

I confirmed my W58 was the same block as the Perkins 4.154 series 200. Then found the same engine used in farm tractors and heavy equipment.

Price from marine engine suppliers ranged $230-$400. Under $100 delivered from a farm tractor dealer in Iowa.

Thank you for the input, I'm sure I will need it in the not too distant future.
Happy sailing,

Re: Westerbeke parts

I get parts for my Westerbeke 4-107 from pacific Perkins in ridgefield,Wa.
I also only buy Perkins filters as the 4-107 is a Perkins. As I remember fuel filters are $5 and oil filters were $6-7. New water pump was $120 I bought one for a spare.
They have most parts in stock with the exception of the marine parts.
My boat is in Portland,Or.

Re: Westerbeke parts

I rebuilt my W58. After many problems with various suppliers I learned that the W58 was a Perkins 4.154. I purchased a rebuild kit for the Perkins and with the exception of a few gaskets, I was able to rebuild the Westerbeke.

Re: Westerbeke parts

Ah Ha!.. At last some Westerbeke gurus.

How do I find out who really makes the 71C?

Ronbo1... and why shouldn't one use any other oil filter which fits?

I notice the present filters which I have and are beautifully packaged in red boxes have a Made in Chine label on them. Absolutely nothing wrong with anything made in China .. its the 1000% markup which I object to.

Re: Westerbeke parts

My Westerbeke genset uses a Johnson waterpump. I tried the rebuild route and the bearing failed into the oil pan along with filling the motor with raw water.

Bayshore Marine in Annapolis, MD stocks westerbeke parts and are very helpful.

Re: Westerbeke parts

I like Bayshore as well but Engines1 in Norfolk is (from what I can tell) the official distributor of westerbeke parts on the east coast US.

Re: Westerbeke parts

Neelie

In short...I tried Sierra oil filters after not finding a Westerbeke marked one
The first Sierra lasted 20 hrs before dumping all the oil past the O-ring into the engine pan. The second one lasted only 20min. The Westerbeke OEM's have since run fine. Sierra refunded my money and asked for the side by side photos I took. It appeared to me the gasket wasn't dimensionally the same. Never heard back from Sierra.

Note: I wrote about it in this forum at the end of 2012.

Re: Westerbeke parts

Penny
Have you checked the thruhull and sea strainer to see if water is getting to the engine?

Re: Westerbeke parts

Hansen Marine in Marblehead, MA is the place for Westerbeke parts. I needed a new water pump for my Westerbeke 46 (which is a Perkins 4-108 clone) and Hansen is the only place that had one in stock.
