Info on Bukh engines???

Just bought a 38 Cheoy Lee with a Bukh engine that the previous owner had tried to mess with. The manifold is off and a box of parts sits next to it. He says that he got it started once with starter fluid but it would not stay running. Been apart for a while and after looking at the rest of his handy work around the boat I fear the worst. Is this a motor worth trying to fix as I have never heard of it before and can't seem to find any parts service in the USA. Any info or advice is appreciated.
Thanks,
Garr

Bukh engines are used as life boat engines..
But I don't know what condition your engine is in.

You can download a Workshop and Users Manual from here.

Bukh DV10/20 engines are Danish purpose-made marine engines - not industrial conversions. Built like the proverbial "brick latrine". They are well-worth re-building where the spares are available.

Both pistons go up and down together, and there is a balance weight on the crank-shaft.

I had a DV20 in my previous boat, and never had a days problem in the 9 years I had her. The engine was 1984 vintage, and it is still going today (well, summertime). The boat is now used for chartering.

I have a workshop manual, if you require any information, should you not be able to download the manuals.
