MD3B Volvo-Penta sea water to fresh water conversion

I have an MD3B Volvo-Penta diesel engine cooled with Sea water. I want to convert it to Fresh water cooling. Sen Dure Company sells a kit for the conversion. The sales rep tells me I should not experience any problems after converting. But others caution that years of salt build up may plug up the water jackets. Any one out there have first hand experience with this kind of conversion? Thanks for your input.
