You are looking at the engine room of a Nordhavn 52.

40 Year Old Engines and Engine Room

Picture of one of the 40 year old Ford Lehman engines in my 1976 Hatteras LRC. To my knowledge this was the only LRC that was equipped with Lehman's

My newb contribution, such as it is. 87' Grand Banks 42' w/ SP135's. 4.5' headroom but clean. forward head sanitation hose with the dip in it has to go. Also the raw water hose coming from seacock to port engine is sitting on the rail. Little rub spot so need to deal with that as well.

Nice looking ER! Lots more room around the engines than my buddies '86 with the big Cat 3208s.

A few wraps of Rescue Tape in the meantime will protect the hose from rub wear until you can permanently modify it.

Have some tape in place already. I have to watch that as I am a squirrel at this point. While putting the tape ion the hose I notice oil on top of the valve cover and then while cleaning that off I notice a little water around the RW seacock and go to tighten that up and then notice the....you get it...6 months from now the tape will still be sitting there. I need to develop a little zen like focus and fix or adjust one thing at a time. I am finding that impossible to do.

But the engine room (back on topic) is nice and clean and very well lit. PO installed LED's around the outside sides of the ER and I can see everything very well when I am squirelling around looking for nuts. Even that led to another future project. Installing some LED's behind my Racor's so I can see what is happening inside them without using a flashlight from behind. Would be nice to take a quick glance and see good, bad or indifferent.

Greetings,
Re: Post #209. No need to modify anything to eliminate rub spot. Get a short length (6") of ABS, PVC or any plastic pipe of the right ID, cut it in half lengthwise and tape it to the rubber intake hose at the friction point.

Two of the grandsons helping with the fuel polishing manifold we built. I can now use the unit not only to polish fuel, but also transfer fuel between 3 tanks, and to purge air from all fuel filters on boat.

I'm 6'4"......gotta love Art DeFever's engine room design!

Thanks! Yep, they like listening to the stereo in the engine room and getting their juice boxes from the little frig. The older one wants to sleep down there with "the Deeres"
