The Ford engine Lehman marinized was also marinized by Lees, and by Bowman. Maybe others. Base engine parts may be available from marinizers, but Ford tractor dealers are a good source, the engine was used in numerous Ford commercial vehicles incl tractors. No idea if ADC as the Lehman successor can supply marinizing parts to fit a Lees marinization but it`s worth asking, I`d wager Brian has been asked before, he may even know a Lees source.

I can track down almost all the Less patterns so it is possible to get Less marine parts new if you need them. The Kiwi equivalent to Brian is a really nice chap named Don Bernand, in his 80's now and still working everyday. He still owns the boat on the cover of the Lees Manual.

Congrats and welcome to the awesome world of Cheoy Lees! Sounds like you’re well on your way to getting good information on the Ford Lees. If you are interested in perusing a website with lots of cool info on Cheoy Lees in general (plus model specific info if available), try this:

Congratulations on the purchase. I think I have heard good things about that boat. It's currently moored two jetties from our boat. I assume Rob surveyed it?

We have lived aboard a 36 Catalina on the Pacific side of Mexico for about five years.
We have decided to relocate here in southern Florida. We’re going to sell the boat in Mexico and purchase a Trawler. Getting to old to sail anymore.
We are looking for a Mainship 34. Would appreciate any information on a Mainship.
