The Lehman Manufacturing Company was formed in 1931. By 1957, they were producing marinizing components for a wide variety for gasoline engines including General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, and Willys (see Lehman Catalog #28 ©1957). In the early 1960's, Lehman began manufacturing marinizing components for many of the diesel engine models produced by Ford of Britain after 1952. Lehman marketed these marinizing components in kits so other parties could marinize various new and used Ford diesel engines, many of which were taken out of tractors, lorries, harvesters, rock crushers, generators, and the like. Early in 1965, Lehman started buying brand new diesel engines from Ford and marinizing them. These included the popular Lehman 80 and Lehman 120. Lehman became very successful marketing these marinized Ford engines to boatbuilders worldwide.

PLUS information about their other products.


Lehman 4D46, 4D50 & 4D61
(Ford-PSA XD90 ⇐ Indenor XLD 4/90)

Lehman produced and marketed the 4D46, 4D50 & 4D61 marine engines from 1972± to 1988± by marinizing new 2.1 litre displacement Ford-PSA XD90 ⇐ Indenor XLD 4/90 base engines. These naturally aspirated engines featured overhead valves operated by rockers, push rods and flat tappets by a camshaft located low in the right-hand side of the cylinder block and parallel to the horizontal crankshaft, The four inline wet liner cylinders were oriented at an incline and the mechanical indirect fuel injection sprayed diesel into each Ricardo swirl precombustion chamber contained in the head for each cylinder.


Industrial Engine Operation ⇒ Ford Power Products

Ford Motor Company has long been an industry leader in supplying powertrain systems to the industrial and power generation markets. Originally established in 1947 as the "Industrial Engine Operation of Ford Motor Company", and going by several names over the years, Ford Power Products is now managed by Ford Component Sales: a wholly owned subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company. Back when they were called "Ford Industrial Power Products", they marketed diesel engines sourced from their tractor and truck divisions located mainly in Europe to the off-road OEMs including marinizers like Lehman, AmMarine, Bomac, Lees, Mermaid, Parsons, Sabre and Thorneycroft.

See our main Ford Industrial Power Products article for more details,

The Ford-PSA XD90 Industrial base engine that Lehman marinized to produce the
Lehman 4D46, 4D50 & 4D61 models is a member of the following engine group.


Ford ⇐ PSA (Peugeot) XD Series ⇐ Indenor XDP Range
(1972?-2003?)

The Ford-PSA-Peugeot XD series of diesel engines was sourced by Ford from Indenor through PSA Groupe's PSA PowerTrain (Formerly Peugeot Citroën Moteurs). PSA had marketed the XDs very successfully to power several brands of generators, tractors, light trucks and automobiles including their own very popular Peugeot 504 series of vehicles (with XD90). In turn, Ford not only used these engines in their own vehicles such as the European Ford Granada, but Ford also supplied these engines to its subsidiaries, including Jaguar, Volvo, and Land Rover. Ford also supplied these engines through Ford Power Products to DNT, Lehman, Stratos, Vetus, and Volvo Penta where they were marinized.

Lehman 4D61 marinized from PSA (Peugeot) XD90 diesel engine like used in the Peugeot 504 automobile.

The XDs came in several 4 cylinder inline Displacements including 1.9L, 2.1L & 2.5L. The 1.9L had a bore of 88mm and was designated the XD88. The base engine for the marinized Volvo Penta MD21A, the 2.1L (2112cc) XD90 had a bore of 90mm. Indenor, who designed this series used slightly different model designations in their production, the XDP 4/88 & XDP 4/90 respectively. The 2.5L engine retained the same stroke as the XD90 but gained a larger bore of 93mm. The XD engines were also produced in six-cylinder inline versions like the XDP 6/90 which was used as the base engine for the Volvo Penta MD31. All these engines came in several versions depending on their application (Agriculture, Automotive, Industrial & Power generation) each with its own rating. Due to the popularity and commonality of these engines, most parts are readily available from numerous sources, including the various OEM's where they were fitted into tractors, generators, light trucks, automobiles, and boats.

*The "OL = Overload" Duty Rating power output is achieved by these diesel engines only when the fuel injection control (the "rack" in most "Jerk" type fuel injection pumps) reaches maximum fuel duration and the engine is under heavy load. This "overload" power output is intended to be reached only occasionally for short duration situations such as when accelerating, as it results in over-fueling (a fuel rich mixture) that will cause rapid carbonization which in turn will severely shorten the service life of the engine. Therefore, it is recommended that the engine, gearing, propeller, etc. be set up so the fuel injection control will back off to a position that will provide the best ratio of fuel to air during sustained operation in order to achieve a long engine service life. Far too often, diesel marine engines are poorly matched to the watercraft by the builder and/or are over-propped with too much pitch, forcing them to suffer the serious consequences of over-fueling. See our article on Selecting the right diesel engine to discover a vital component that all diesel engines lack, but almost every gasoline engine is equipped with.

What our nonprofit Anchors Aweigh Academy and its
EverythingAboutBoats.org website have accomplished so far.

  • Published over 300 website main topic webpages, many with full articles on the topic. See our Website Contents in the Right Sidebar for the listing of the main topic pages.
  • Published over 9,000 marine vendor webpages, all with their contact information, most with a description of their products and services, many with product documentation, specifications and independent reviews. (Includes: Boat designers, boat building tools, material and equipment manufacturers and suppliers, boat builders and dealers, yacht brokers, marine surveyors, boat insurers, boat transporters, skippers and crews, boatyards and marinas, yacht clubs, boat rentals and yacht charters, boating, seamanship and maritime schools, marine law attorneys and expert witnesses, boat refitters and repairers, book authors and publishers, and video producers)
  • Acquired over 120,000 pages of product documentation including Catalogs, Brochures, SpecSheets, Pictures, Serial Number Guides, Installation Manuals, OpManuals, Parts Schematics, Parts Bulletins, Shop Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, Service Bulletins, and Recalls. And have made all viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
  • Acquired over 1,200 books and magazine back issues in our academy library and so far have made over 700 viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
  • Published over 500 DIY How-To articles about boat design, construction, inspection, operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repair. We are working hard to do more.

We are currently formatting and polishing the Anchors Aweigh Academy online and hands-on courses. The Marine Surveying course has proven to be excellent for both the beginner and the seasoned surveyor, and especially helpful to the Do-It-Yourselfer.

FROM Donald: "This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 20,000 free articles that you provide as a public service. I'm surprised that so much if this site is free. But I still signed up so I could access the thousands of expanded pages, interesting articles, and dozens of valuable programs! The member's library of books, magazines and videos that I can view online is really terrific! I understand that you and your staff are all unpaid volunteers. Please keep up the good work. And I commend you for your plans to add another 10,000 free informative articles over the next year. I'm thrilled to support you in this endeavor with my small membership donation. Thanks again for all your hard work."

FROM Huey: "I agree with my Uncle, I too have found the articles to be very enlightening. They say that it will take about 100,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 20,000 articles so far and that's doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage. I guess that they will fill in as they can get volunteers to work on them. But what I can't figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What's in it for them?"

FROM Dewey: "Well Huey, to me It looks like most of the articles on this website are written by very informed people, like boating instructors, boat designers, boat builders, riggers, electricians, fitters, marine repair technicians and marine surveyors. Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server because the website's traffic has been growing exponentially."

FROM Louie: "I agree with everyone above. This site is quickly becoming the ultimate reference resource about every aspect of boats and ships for everyone from the beginning recreational boater to the seasoned professional mariner. I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It's like a Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook for Boaters. Their Members' Library of over 300 popular and obscure books and over 200 magazine back issues that can be viewed online is fabulous. The Academy's magazine is especially informative. On top of that, there is the "Ask-An-Expert program for members where you can get an expert's answer to any of your boat questions. And a whole years membership is only $25. What a deal! I really love being part of this "Everything About Boats" community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I'll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle."

FROM Scrooge: "You rave about this website like it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well, I think it stinks. Sure, it has a lot of good information for boaters, and they're adding more every day, but it will probably never be finished. Furthermore, I don't even own a boat. And I wouldn't have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They're just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I'd sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Then I'd lock up the cash with all my other money so I could keep my eye on it and count it every day. Bah humbug."

FROM Daisy: "I'm just so glad that Donald got the boat so we and the boys could enjoy boating — together. And of course all of the girls, April, May, and June, love to be on the water too, especially when that is where the boys are. Oh poor Scrooge, boating is more fun then you could possibly imagine."

FROM Scrooge: "After seeing how much fun you all have on the water together, I regret that I didn't have that much fun when I was young. I've had a change of heart, and I'm giving each of you a Lifetime Academy Membership."

FROM Editor: "For those of you that have stayed with us this far, many thanks. You inspire us to keep working on this labor of love. We know that we have a lot more to do. Ultimately, we hope that we can help you enjoy the wonder filled world of boating as much as we do. We are all waiting to see what you have to say about this webpage article.
