Wanted, Dead or Alive: Westerbeke Four-60 15hp Diesel
 
Hi,

Does anyone out there know where I could pick up an old Westerbeke Four-60 15hp diesel engine? Doesn't matter if it runs or if the accessories are there, as long as the basic engine is mostly complete.

Thanks, Ian

I have a 2cyl. 12 hp and a 3cyl. 18 hp Westerbeke , both running . Contact me through my profile if interested, Scott

Hi Scott,

Thanks very much for the very quick reply, but I'm looking specifically for a Four-60.

For those not familiar with the Westerbeke Four-60, it's a little four-cylinder, 60 cubic inch, 15 horsepower unit. I believe they were made from about 1970 to 1979 or so.
Thanks
Ian

Seems like it would be a tight little engine for a Citroen 2CV :) :)

Hey SoulVoyage!
You're closer than you think with your comment about using one of these in a Citroen 2CV... The base engine for the Westerbeke 4-60 is a diesel version of the 1-litre gas engine used in the original Austin Minis and many other small British cars.

Westerbeke 4-60
 
Are you still looking for a Westerbeke 4-60? I have a spare 4-60 engine, mostly complete, that I would be willing to sell. I also have a lot of experience with this engine having nursed one along in my boat for the past 18 years and a number of spare parts. My email is jeconway3@gmail.com.
