Ford Lehman Diesels: The Good, Bad and Ugly...
I'm looking a buying a used boat, and I have a dozen years experience with marine diesels evenly split between Yanmar and Perkins. Through others I know I know a few things about other makes and models, but I know precious little about the Ford Lehman diesel.
Every diesel has their good and bad points and quirks. Perkins are loud, leak and are reliable with cheap parts. Yanmar are tight and reliable but the parts are $$$.
What are the good, bad and ugly things that I need to know about Ford Lehman motors? What questions should I ask and what will my surveyor be looking for? The model I am finding most often is the 85HP 4 cylinder model 2722E.
Any wisdom and experience with these diesels would be appreciated.
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
