Lehman Mechanic Southeast Michigan
Can anyone recommend a good mechanic in southeast Michigan for Lehman marine diesels? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you, Bill

Hi neighbor
Contact Billman Marine down at Anchor Pointe in Curtice, OH just out of Toledo, tell Shannon Alan referred you if he can’t help he will know who can.

Care to tell all us Lehman experts if there is a specific problem?

Howdy neighbor! I will give them a call.

Rich, no real problem. I am looking at buying a boat with SP275's and was wondering if there a good mechanics near me if I run into problems. It seems as though Cat, Volvo, Detroit and others are covered, but I am not seeing anyone who is expressing a specialty in Lehmans. I suppose one could conclude that any good diesel mechanic should be able to handle a Lehman as they are pretty straightforward engines. I am also led to believe that the SP275's are not your typical Lehman and have some specific fueling needs amongst other specifics. I had a nice talk with Brian at American Diesel. After this talk I felt as though I would like to work with a mechanic who has experience with this engine. I might not get what I want here, but it is worth asking.

I have found that asking Brian for advise and then telling a good diesel mechanic that I was satisfied. It may not work in every instance but it will work for most issues. What boat are you buying? Of course, we will need photos.

Thanks Dave. Negotiations have stalled for the moment. More later I hope.

Not sure whether you’re up around Jefferson Beach or down Toledo Beach way but as you probably know by now we are in the land of the big go-fast power boats, we trawler guys are few and far between…

I boat out of Anchor Pointe next to Meinkes 900+ slips and three trawlers.

That’s why there are no Lehman specialists.
