Foley, aka Dr. Diesel warning

Do a search for Dr. Diesel, and/or Foley for endless horror stories...

As to the rings you picture, I've never seen a 4-154 with one on it.

As to other hard-to-find 4-154 parts, I highly recommend Mark Talacki at

Skip, wishing he'd gone there rather than Dr. Diesel (you could probably find a thread in CF on the subject from about a year ago...)

Very curious. Your injectors are flattops; mine are conical. The only flattops I've seen are on 236s...

I emailed Mark Talacki about the seals and heres what he had to say:

"Dust seals; leave it alone, we do not have & you are OK."

Best Regards,

Mark Talacki

Sort of thinking this is a non issue at this point.

Meaning that if they are cracked they won't pose a problem? Or that you can leave them off?

I took it to mean that they dont really do anything and could be left off. I am going to take a closer look at the one thats broken and I may end up just making a replacement out of rubber hose if its easy.

Its really a shame parts are such a challenge for this engine because mine has about 2500 hours on it and seems to be in great shape (knocking on wood now). I just get concerned taking off on a long distance cruise with it knowing that if I have a problem parts may not be available. I hate the idea of having to replace the engine because something relatively simple like a freshwater cooling pump is no longer available.
