cross index between Westerbeke 30 and ford Leyland diesel en

Has anyone made a cross index of engine parts between a Westerbeke 30 and the Ford Leyland engine that it is based on? I need to rebuild a Westerbeke but I refuse to pay the exorbitant prices wanted by Westerbeke. also need a new number for the champion AG39 glow plug. Thanks to anyone who can help

NavigatorBjorn,

Have you had any luck in your search for the cross reference between the W30 and the Leyland diesel? I too am just starting a rebuild of a W30 (actually it''s a Four-91 which is suppose to be the same). I would appreciate any info you have found concerning the cross-reference of parts.

Are you sure the W30 and is based on a Ford Leyland? I have read that it is based on a British Leyland. Do you know if the Ford and the British Leylands are different or the same?

FI:

You might just call up the Westerbeke folks and ask them about the origin of your engine. I''ve found them pretty forthcoming on the origins of a given, now dated engine. To start, you can visit them at www.westerbeke.com for #s & names of key people.

Hi Marc,
I know this is an old post but I just joined and saw it, so I thought I'd write. I'm a British car enthusiast and I know the British Leyland B-series engines well. So, if you need any help identifying or finding parts, send me a message and I'll try to help.
A lot of the smaller parts, gaskets, etc, on your engine will be common to the gas versions used in cars too. Any MG sports car specialist could help you out.
Best regards,
Ian

All;

Ian is your guy on this. He introduced me to the fact the the 1500B block is essentially the diesel version of the gas MG block. It is NOT a ford. It is British Leyland through and through. I was recently able to purchase reasonably priced gasket from a British car parts supply house for my W30.

And... this is important: The W30 is NOT the 4-91 in any way shape or form. The W30 replaced the 4-91. I recently rebuilt mine. Photos are on flickr dot com slash chuckbullett. It is a sweet sounding engine when you have everything dialed-in.
