MD3B Volvo-Penta sea water to fresh water conversion

George, thanks again. I think the pickings are more than slim, maybe you need to give yourself a little more credit. You''ve got a big pat on the back from me. In any event, all of what you say makes a lot of logical sense to me. I never gave a thought to the fact that automobiles run at the boiling point and that is the reason for pressurizing the cooling system. I''m going to go ahead and make an expansion tank out of PVC, I think this will work just dandy. And I''ll provide a vent that I can monitor just like you suggest (what a good idea!!). I truly appreciate the message board and value your input. How many gallons per minute live bait pump do you think is necessary for the 12v sea water pump? I notice in West Marine''s catalog they come in differing sizes? Thank you very much, Peter
