Re: ford lehman 4d61

Hi tsunami.
I have the same boat with the same issues on the engine.
If you repower your boat, I would buy all of the parts on your Lehman.
I have the same engine and could use a spare lift pump, starter, injectors, water pump and I would even take the transmission as well. I am outfitting for a 3 year world cruise and don't want to repower. Good luck to you and if you do find somewhere to get spares, can you let me know?
Thank you very much

Re: Ford Lehman 4d61

This engine is built on a Peugoet diesel engine, not a Ford diesel. The same basic engine was marinised by Volvo but parts are very hard to find in the States.

Use a modern diesel that produces about 50HP at under 3,000 in the Vagabond42. This will move the boat better than the high speed Lehman / Peugoet.

Re: Ford Lehman 4d61

I may be way too late to help but here goes The engine is a Peugeot 2112 cc XD90 Indenor engine as used in the Peugeot 504 and most Peugeot parts are directly usable for your engine. American Diesel USA, Lancing Marine in UK and Greg Lilienthal of Bomac Marine USA are 3 key resources. New starters are available but for about $400 when last I looked but if you have an old one all internal parts are available, fuel injection pump....I have one spare but it likely needs a rebuild, water pump for the engine fresh water is very available, made by GMB and others they may be had from the water pump warehouse and others. the Johnson saltwater pump is likewise available on the internet. I bought most of my parts from the UK as this engine was used in the Ford Classic. If you get really ambitious India used this engine a jeep like vehicule and still make it new for use in irrigation pumps and generators. If you need any other Lehman parts I may have a spare but I am slow to respond because my boat is in Honduras!

Re: Ford Lehman 4d61

I am in a very similar situation to everyone else, I need a major rebuild including Pistons rings bearings etc, I am in Malaysia , an either rebuild if parts are available or re power.
If I go down this track (re power) I will have a complete motor for sale.
