154 what’s the engine like?

Post by 2011dandd » Wed Oct 09, 2019 4:16 pm

Hi
What’s the engine like in these little tractors? Is it a Leyland own diesel or the Perkins 3 cylinder that’s in the mf 135 etc? I can’t find much info about the Leyland 154 at all.
Thanks
Dan

The engine is the 4 cylinder BMC B series 1500cc diesel unit ( or 1622 petrol) as used in the J2 J4 vans, Austin A60 and many boats. There are brochures and manuals about the tractor on ebay now. Technical information is available on the Nuffield Club website. Go on youtube and type in leyland 154. Good sources of spares www.charnleys.com and www.tractorspareparts.co.uk John Poulter

Very reliable if looked after and serviced correctly, oil, coolant, filters etc. Use good clean fuel.
Can be difficult to start if heater plugs fail.
They tend to smoke a bit, but this is normal! Otherwise a good little engine.

Great thanks for that. Most things last longer with proper maintenance and servicing

With only 1300 hours on mine I hope it’s going to be in good condition. Fingers crossed
