RE: Lehman Engine Rebuild DVD

Very informative. Those guys are in the UK, where the 120 was marinized as I recall. I bet they have quite a few under their belt. Notice how he numbered the valves, I'm guessing they were cleaned and lapped back in their original holes. Brian at American Diesel would be your source in the states for parts and technical answers. What sort of failure did you have?

Just curious how many hours on your 120 Lehman, before needing to be rebuilt. I always understood that engine to go 20,000+ hours.

*Only in a perfect world and a marine engine is NOT in a perfect world.

I know one who did a rebuild at 6000 hours, another who had to do one at 2000 hours. Neither thought they did anything wrong, that the damage was done previous to their ownership. Could be so, no one will ever know for sure.

RE: Lehman Engine Rebuild DVD

I spoke to Bob Smith, the original engineer that designed the Lehman Engine. He said that he has never made a DVD of this class since he has found that hands on is the best way to learn the Lehman. I do not know if he is right or not but he does teach at the Trawler University during most Trawlerfest conferences offered by Passagemaker magazine.

I would love to have a DVD like the rest of the readers of this forum. I will let the group know if I ever come by one.

In the meantime I plan to take BOb's class.
