Bukh Diesel in Spencer 28 Sun Sloop

I finally bought my first sailboat its a 1960 Spencer Sun 28ft, but it has a bukh 8 sme 8hp inboard diesel, Does Anyone know anything about these motors. Is there anywhere in canada you can get parts for them? Pulling the boat out and putting it on the hard in a month and doing the zincs, stuffing box and bottom paint. Got the boat very cheap but the motor is questionalbe.

Hi Shawn
You could give this dealer in North Vancouver a call - he sells and services Bukh engines:
Marine System Inc.
Phone# 604 985 5326 Fax# 604 986 1213
email address:

Bukh marine engines are well designed, heavily built and can be hand-started (thus often used in commercial lifeboats). Not many of them around on pleasure craft but some owners are fanatically loyal to them.
