1967 Samofa 2S108

Samofa 2S108- Year of Manufacture 1967

Samofa 2S108 Marine. 30hp @ 1500rpm. Although a running engine when purchased by the owner this engine had been sat for some years, because of this the engine was with us for strip, inspection and overhaul. however, a change of plans for the owner (second hand boat instead of a new one) means this beautiful engine is now available. Completed with 12v electric start, 12v 175 Amp Iskra alternator, Gear driven Jabsco coolant pump, modern fuel filter and its original 2:1 reduction gearbox this engine type makes an ideal power plant for a tradition narrowboat. Sharing many components with its cousin the Gardner 2LW it is a similar engine but without the premium the 2LW's cost.
