Where to buy parts for Ford industrial engine?
« on: March 06, 2017, 07:34:23 pm »
I have a 1995 JLG manlift with a Ford LSG 423 industrial motor.  This is a 4 cylinder dual fuel (gasoline and propane) engine.  Mine is a factory reman with .020 over cylinders; the engine had been getting weak and when one of the hydraulic lash adjusters went bad I opted to remove the engine in order to freshen it up.

However, I'm having the dickens of a time finding a parts source for it.  My local auto parts houses are not able to look up anything to do with a Ford industrial motor, and I hate to pay the "hate your guts prices" at the local Ford dealerships.

I need to source some cam bearings, .020 over rings, a full gasket set, valve seals, full set of  hydraulic lash adjusters, etc.  The crank bearings look pretty good and I'm leaning towards reusing them.

Does anybody have any good sources for high quality parts are reasonable prices?

Thanks.
