So, I've got an m3-20. apparently, I need a new lift (fuel) pump and a heat exchanger. Anybody have thoughts?

btw, props to the Captain for the treasures in the thread. And the thread.

Is there a location - web based - that provides the marine engine's original manufacturer make and model before it was marinized?

Westerbeke full pump, 154.00 -
8 weeks for a tech - and the engine was 2 weeks old (and I'd have had to wait for authorization before the 8 weeks started if I wanted them to pay for the warrantied repair).
AutoZone 25 gph 12v pump fitting in the exact same place - 29.95, time to replace, 30 minutes.

ZEPHYR Fuel polisher 575 -
piece of plywood, another autozone pump, filters, hoses and brass fittings (marine grade, hardware store) -125.

Pays to look around
Props to CapnHand well deserved.

I have a Westerbeke W-52 I'm having "looked at" by a non-marine diesel rebuilder this winter. Any idea if there's a tractor/non-marine equivalent? (I have been led to consider that it's a marinized Mazda 2.5 litre block).

As I will be replacing the FW pump, the heat exchanger and various other bits and pieces (if the originals work, they become the "spares"), I would LOVE to avoid buying Gouge-o-Rama priced "official" stuff, because it's just a pure rip-off.

This is a GREAT thread...

Lots of cross reference info on Westerbreak, and some on Universal. How about (dare I say this) Yanmar? Is all their stuff unique to Yanmar?

Don,t think it's related to a mazda.Your engine is134.8 cubic inches I believe.Thats = 2209 cubic centimeters,a far cry from 2and1/2 litres. Interesting though mazda does make a diesel 2.5 litre licenced to perkins.

Could sailnet put together a database? Perhaps it has to be set up where we input the info. Similar to active captain.

2209 cc is 2209 ml, which is 2.2 litres. Not such a far cry.

I'll check out Mazda.

What's really helped is the web. Research is so much easier. I also think talking to the diesel rebuild boys would be a good source to find out who makes the engine in your boat. Marine rebuilders go to marine suppliers, but Fuel Injection places/truck diesel rebuilders don't bother, and they'll have source lists for parts.

I would like to find out the source for the exchangers that Westerbeke uses.

As for alternators, forget the marinised ones (unless you are using a gas engine). One engineer claims that the only real difference from the auto ones is a light epoxy coating on the windings to reduce corrosion. I have a Ford 100 amp truck alternator on my engine that I bought for $230.00, and I paid way too much (but we were on an island at the time and I knew I'd be gouged). Replacement diodes are like 20 bucks, a few dollars for brushes.

BTW, as for lift pumps, I found one for this engine for about $25.00! and I just sourced new injectors for $49.00 each, which is a great price as they are specific to this ONE engine.


As for the westerbeke W30, the block was used in the following vehicles:

BMC - NEWAGE (MARINE) 1.5 1489cc

NUFFIELD TRACTOR 4/25 & 154 1.5 1968-80

LEYLAND TRACTOR 154 Eng 15T 1968-80

AUSTIN A60 1.5 1962-69
MORRIS OXFORD 1.5 1962-71
MORRIS ITAL & MARINA 1.5 1974-84
AUSTIN/MORRIS JB,J2 & J4 Vans 1.5 1961-74
AUSTIN MORRIS JU-250 1.6 1967-74

Might be hard sourcing the car parts, but people hang onto tractors. There are several outfits that still handle these parts, even in the US.

Yanmar is an engine manufacturer, but that doesn't mean that they don't outsource many of their parts.
