Watermota

Just wondering if someone else has a Watermota Sealion in their boat. It's the Ford 2715e block marinized by Bowmen, an English co. 120 hp. I am waiting for my new solenoid to arrive from Bob Smith of ADC. I guess I am going to have to tweak the connection a little to the fuel stop arm as it's not a Lehman. I'm sure there will be other adaptations in the future. Has anybody had issues with this motor, like parts availability etc?

I have a Hershine 37 with a ford watermota sealion. I bought it thinking it was a Lehman because the previous owner swapped out the old exhaust manifold and replaces it with a Lehman??? Main problem is the water oat does not have a zinc so the ex. Man. Wears out too soon. I am in touch with American diesel and they help me with parts and ideas. I am also in brakish water which helps. I flush it with fresh water after running it. Such is life.

I didn't know the manifolds would be interchangeable. I think I'm fortunate to have a 4 mile run in fresh water from salt to our slip. Have any pics?
