Re: Volvo MD11 - MD17 part compatibility

Thanks for the reply,

Mine is definitely a volvo, well that is, volvo head gaskets fit the last time i did them !!

But good thought on the "MD17", the heads look the same at a glance without pulling them or the covers off, same layout of bits and pieces, same looking Hex Key oil fill caps, decompression set up etc etc. However it is painted red and not your standard volvo green, but anyone can paint an engine! Are perkins red by standard issue??

I did look at the engine number (didn't write it down though!) there was no brand name left on the engine number plate (been in the weather a while!!!) but I will go and see if i can find the engine number. I will see what google yields if i can decipher the engine number.

anymore thoughts please anyone?

thanks again
B
