volvo engine

An unfortunate problem with the 2003 is that the MS2B transmission has a splined input shaft that tends to wear. If you use reverse a lot to slow the boat going into slips, one day the transmisison will not shift into reverse. Volvo makes a new mounting kit that can be installed but the transmisison must be removed. If the splines are worn, as they usually are, the transmission must be rebuilt with a new gear set.
