SINCE 1988 WE HAVE RECONDITIONED OVER 1,850 VM MOTORI DIESEL ENGINES AND REPAIRED IN THE REGION OF 1,200 ENGINES, 50% BEING MARINE VERSIONS OF THE VM ENGINES
We are sure we have repaired more VM Motori, BMW, Mercury and Mercuiser engines than anyone else in the country!
Since 1988 the VM Diesel Specialist has been supplying, reconditioning, and selling parts for the BMW, Mercury, Mercruiser, Cummins Mercruiser and VM range of marine diesel engines, which incidentally were all manufactured by the VM Motori company of Italy and all re-badged with the appropriate manufacturers name.
Our prices are very competitive for all spare parts for all of the above applications very often beating our major competitors by quite a margin.
Over the years we have reconditioned countless versions of marine engines manufactured by VM Motori ranging from top end rebuilds to complete bare block restorations. In some instances, the engines have required complete dismantling because of metal ingress due to bearing failure and in other cases, only the damaged parts have need to be replaced.
As an example, the Mercruiser 4.2 litre or the MD706 range of marine engines can easily take around 50 – 65 hours to completely recondition including checking the coolers and heat exchangers. Because of the amount of time required to repair these engines, a lot of boat owners and boatyards prefer to entrust the work to a specialised Mercruiser repairer such as the VM Diesel Specialist.
Crankshaft breakage is not uncommon in the 6 cylinder 4.2 VM Motori engines along with turbo charger turbine wheel failure. Fuel injector pump problems caused by infrequent use of the boat is not uncommon.

To carry our major repairs, it is usual for the engine to be removed from the boat because of the limited space and poor accessibility on the craft.
So whether you require spare parts or engine reconditioning for the BMW, Mercury, Mercruiser, Cummins Mercruiser or VM range of marine diesel engines then contact the VM Diesel Special office either by phone or email or use the marine engine enquiry form.
