Exclamation Used Westerbeke 50 Parts needed-Injector Assembly

If anyone has or knows of someone who has some Westerbeke 50 (1980's era) available please PM me. I am specifically looking for an Injector Assembly (Westerbeke Part # 23182) or just the Injector Cap will do. I would be interested in other parts.

The reason being I have run into an issue with a stripped cap, when I install the new banjo bolt, it strips the threads, or vice versa? I can probably get away with using it for a while but eventually it will leak again.

I have also thought to try and tap it but cannot find the tap (8x.75) yet.

I will also contact as many of the local diesel engine mechanics in the area I know and see if they have one or an idea, any other suggestions are welcome.

The thought of having to drop $$$ for a new injector assembly just isn't in the cards right now, Torresens list the part for $659.00

Most of the Westerbekes are based on Japanese engines- many are Mitsubishi. Just about all of these use ND injectors. All that Westerbeke does is buy these parts, paint them red and triple the price. An injector repair shop might be able to help.

Chef,

Might not pan out, but give a shout to TransAtlantic Diesels -- very helpful folks who know their diesels.
