Hi,
It seems like a Foden Mk 6 to me, if it has a turbo as well it is a Mk 7---I think! Not sure about spares but they were also used in a lot of Foden lorries and manuals appear on e-bay quite often.

"Britannia" is a 1926 Foden C Type 6 Ton steam wagon.
In 1969 Michael List Brain and friends embarked on a 4-year-long round the world trip, covering many tens of thousands of miles in a steam driven wagon with solid rubber tyres and a box van on the back for sleeping accomodation.
A journey not for the faint hearted!

For Wagdi,
The FD6 blowers are standard Rootes blowers so it should be possible to search for replacements in a wider field than Foden spares. However, the following links may help http://www.sleeman-hawken.co.uk/products.html and http://www.classicenginesandspares.co.uk
It may also be quite possible to repair your blower depending on the extent and area of damage, there's not much to go wrong with them except bearings, radial & axial, and some tiny clearances.

The Foden in fully machined kit form is only available from Steam Traction World or you can visit an online website, they include all the individual component parts of used boats for their customer. I have a great interest in boats and ships I usually visit various sites to search for information regarding tools, equipments, spares etc. Recently I came across a website http://www.hiperformer.com/marine-engines/, which provides OEM certified used parts and engines at an affordable cost.
