Question on Lehman 120 parts

Where is the best place to buy gaskets for the heat exchanger on a Ford Lehman 120.

I've always been told that when you start answering yourself you are in trouble.

Glad you found the best source.

Any local marine shop should stock them. They're just generic 4" heat exchanger gaskets. Heck, you can make them up yourself if you've got some gasket material lying around.

For that engine frequently you can go to a Ford tractor parts house and get parts that aren't unique to your engine like heat exchanger parts that are tacked on my the marineizer such as Sabre or Lehman. Get all the numbers you can when you go though.

Giggles
I'm pretty sure AD can provide. A couple of years ago I had the hose/ gasket supplier we use cut me some spares out of rubber. Probably an 1/8" thick. Of course, at $3, it would probably be better just to order some spares from Brian.

You can try Fisheries Supply in Seattle at http://www.fisheriessupply.com/ They have the round rubber gaskets in both 3 and 4 inch.

Giggles, you mean the strainer baskets are missing? Why 4? Gen, AC, 2 mains? I had a damaged basket on a main SS a few years and was able to match it up at the now closed Blue Water Ship store in Kemah Texas. Same for a spare plastic strainer for the AC. That way I could swap out the strainer and bring the other home for a good cleaning. Can you post some pictures??

From what I can see in the little pic, it looks exactly like mine.* Check it out in my pic.* I'll see if I can get a number off the basket next time I'm at the boat.

RE: Question on Lehman 120 parts

Back in the day --Marine trading International-- had a lot of things manufactured to be simular to name brand stuff.

They could keep their boats afforaable by having a lot of stuff made up.

Not sure of you could find a basket for it but you could have one made.

I know this is not much help, but I would not spend much time looking for a needle in a haystack.

Even if I went over to Don Miller's(the importer)* yard, I doubt if he would*sell me one if he had it.
