    "Hi there,

    Has anybody heard of "Lomatec" as a marine diesel manufacturer? They seem to sell
    marinized Nissan blocks.

    However, it seems impossible to locate the company.

    Default I purchesed a lomatec 65 hp L4

    I purchesed a lomatec 65 hp L4d26 from MDT a co. in Au. Almost immediately the impeller pump leaked. MDT sent me a new Johnson pump at no cost and said that they were going to replace the pumps on all the lomotecs when they arrive at their factory. At engine hour 13 the rear seal gave out. MDT is sending me a new hopefully better one at no cost. MDT is a good up front co. and easy to work with. But I am understandably shakey about the engine.

    "I purchased a 29 hp 3 cyl.model from MDT power also, I agree with Walter about the proactive response from the company. I had a water pump seal leak as well. I am pleased with the performance of the motor(I installed myself)and have had no further problems(58 hrs.) I too am a little curious re. the actual base motor and marinization, but the price was right and service from MDT is very good."

    I think that you wil like the motor very much. Mine is running quite well now. You will have no worry if you buy it from MDT. They are a good company. I found the manuels translation into english a little rough. But then again I'm from N>Y>C> so what would I know about english."

    Default "Hi there, As the initiator

    "Hi there,

    As the initiator of this posting, I eventually bought a Lomatec L4D18MA? (Nissan block / 35HP) from a reseller in China, so called Mr. Wang Jianyou. Unfortunately, the service from him or his company appear to be very bad.
    The engine was deliverd with the air filter placed on the top of the engine, while on the pictures sent to me before the purchase, showed the air filter placed on the side.
    I had to change this, since the engine cover would have to be 30 cm higher then expected. I had to find a solution for this roblem myself.
    I have asked the guy in China (manufacturer) to send me the appropriate exhaust pipe, in order to modify this, but did not receive any help or cooperation at all from him or his company.

    The waterpump inmediatelly, started to leak while starting the engine for the first time. I agree that the water pump is bad. I exchanged some e-mails with James White from (Marine Diesel Traders)? in Australia.
    Allthough they did not sell the engine to me, James was were very helpfull in provinding the details for the replacement of the waterpump, which seems to be a copy of a Johnson waterpump.
    I am using the engine on a lifeboat, which was transformed into a launch. The engine sounds ok, however it is not very compact like other engines of the same power, like Volvo Penta, Vetus or Yanmar.
    If size is not really a matter, then it maybe a good engine, given the price. I will post more, as soon as I have obtained more experience with this engine.

    I am attaching a photo to this message (which a also sent to the reseller in China), which shows my concerns about the engine.

We want to use and sale these engines in Thailand for local market on fishing, working and pleasure boats but he seems really not to be interested in this huge market where it is really expensive to use imported EU and Japanese engines.

    "Dear Luigi,

    I don't think Mr. Wang Jianyou has anything to do with the manufacturer directly. As far as I believe, he is a middleman, a reseller. There many other people in China selling the Lomatec engines. I don't have any contact details of the manufacturer. It is a very unprofessional, Mr. Wang Jianyou is in my opnion not reliable to do business with. Promisses, but no results."

    Hi Brian. Could you post email address of Mr. Wang Jianyou? Do they have a web site?
    Has anybody ran this engine more then 100 hours? It is also interesting guaranteed life in hours given by manufacturer until complete overhaul. Also I would like to hear any comments about gearboxes. Reliable?

    Default "Gday all I recently purchase

    "Gday all
    I recently purchased a yacht with a newly installed 115 hp turbo LOMATEC engine . The engine was purchased from and installed by BOSS Machinery ,MALAGA WA .The engine has now done 370 hrs without missing a beat !! The water pump fitted was said to accept the Johnson impeller but the one i fitted leaked because the impeller does not seal flat against either the pump housing or cover plate . There is a &#34;notch&#34; in the sealing surfaces on the impeller . As the pump is likely to be common to a number of similar sized motors i was hopping that someone has found a solution . I am also having trouble finding oil filters to suit this motor .
    Any answers greatly appreciated !!
