ISO Sources for Ford Lehman Overhaul Kit

I'm completely revamping the iron genny; anybody know where I can get an overhaul kit with all the gaskets, seals, pumps, and various bells and whistles in one swell foop?

Here are the specs if it helps:
Ford Model 2711E
254 c.i.
Block A
Ser. No #5930928
Build No 513/5A7/400/100-5

Thanks in advance for any help!

Like, Duh. I live in suburban Day-twah. I probably should have known to call them. Thanks, SW!

Is this not a tractor engine...

I may have the wrong handle but my recollection is that the Ford engine used in marine conversions is sourced from tractors or farm machinery or some such.
There are many companies that do marine conversions or make parts using this six cylinder Ford diesel as a base.
One in england is:-
http://www.lancingmarine.com/
While the engine that they convert is the Ford 2725 it is quite possible that most of the parts will fit.
A seach on the internet or some questions to your local marine mechanic should find other companies in this field.
The water pumps most used are Jabsco, and I think their parts are readily available.
Your local Ford tractor dealer should have most if not all of the non marine parts.
So you might have to do some scratching round.

Chris,

Interesting information. I have to think that farmers put up with a whole lot less price gouging than sailors do, such that "tractor engine" parts are probably a better deal than "marine engine" parts...and may well turn out to be the same parts. I'll look into it.

Thanks for the tip!
