Re: Question on Volvo MD6A problems

Update:

Tore engine down and got it unstuck..appears very good inside. No damage to cylinders or bottom half. Approx 500 bucks in gaskets/thermostat/impeller kit...checked all torques...cleaned and reassembled engine.

Fuel injector pump sent off to rebuild house..another 450 bucks..one positive..injectors themselves clean
and in good shape. Pump itself has a stuck pressure regulator but other then that no major damage and assuming they can get parts should come back in good running order, cleaned up, ready to go.

Rebuild house has no idea how fuel would get in there..suggested PO maybe poured in cylinders? Injectors were loose when we pulled engine out.

Got a quote on a completely refurbished pump..3300..WTF? That's insane..speaking of insane every part on this engine costs an arm & a leg more then those for other makes. AND ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND. This motor had better run for a long time..it will also be the LAST Volvo I ever own..
