Re: Volvo Problems

I think smoke because it never goes away even after running a long time. Even before the water pump issue it had white smoke and would die in heavy seas. I tried hooking up an external tank with clean fuel - same thing. Good idea to check exhaust elbow, will try next.

It does go through the reverse gear, but that is clean. I changed the copper lines going to and from pump, and when I put the copper line directly into a bucket of water it has no suction. How would I check if there is obstruction in engine? Would this involve taking it apart? Also, the thru hall is good - water coming out.

Thank you everybody.
