In 1997, I split the exhaust manifold on my olde MD17C. It was my fault.

The cost, then, was 1300, then about $2200, FOR AN EXHAUST MANIFOLD FOR A 20 YEAR OLD MOTOR.

A piston and liner kit, you need three of them, each 300, then $510, total $1530.

Final drive oil seal, one of, 49....sourced elsewhere fo 3.50 (ABC in Aberdeen, Scotland).

Volvo would not seel me oversizes to rebore the motor.

Check out the price for their starter motor too.

Don't learn this lesson the way I did.

Don't buy one. I will never buy another.

Are you listening Volvo? Do want the details?

Expletive to the lot of you!
