Hi Paul, Welcome to the Forum, you`ll find it helpful. I don`t know of other members on Lake Macquarie,seems you are the first. There is one on Pittwater(AndyG) and one other on Sydney Harbour.
The parts from Fred Warner were fitted by my diesel mechanic and seem fine.He thought heat exchangers made specially here would cost $1200 each,but be in s/steel. There is supposed to be someone on Pittwater who does Lehman parts but I`ve never found him. You could ask AndyG. I recently bought 2 radiator caps from Bob Smith in USA, keep him in mind,he wrote the "Welcome" page in the FL Engine Book I got with the boat and deserves supporting.If ever I see a worn out engine for sale I`ll buy it for parts. Bruce

Regards finding impellers for Ford Lehman engines. If you have a FL 120 get a Jabsco Impeller #1210 or equivalent. The 120 uses either a Jabsco or Johnson pump - they both use the same impeller. It's a very popular impeller and you can find it heavily "discounted" by many brick and mortar stores as well as on-line sources. Do look for the pieces of damaged impellers in the heat exchanger, the oil cooler and the tranny cooler. I paid a big price for failing to do just that.
