Support for Marinized Ford Industrial Engines

Other marinizers of Ford-UK engines and manufacurers of marinizing components:

  • American Marine Ltd (Mfr of Grand Banks)
  • Beta Marine
  • Bomac

    In 1981, Bob Smith, who was the former managing director of Lehman Power, founded American Diesel Corp in Kilmarnock, VA to  provide marinizing replacement parts and support for Lehman marinized Ford Industrial Power (UK) Diesel engines. They also produced their own marinized replacement engine packages from the last of the Non-EPA Ford 6.22L engines, similar to the Ford-Lehman Super 135’s. They were first rated at 125 hp and then later at 140 hp.
