Re: Question on Volvo MD6A problems

When I rebuilt my MD7A I had the injector pump completely rebuilt at an injector shop and it cost me around $600.

I have found parts to be a bit on the expensive side, but I haven't had any trouble getting what I need from my local Volvo Penta shop. Most recently was the water cooled exhaust elbow. It took a couple of days to get it in, and it cost $150, which I didn't think was too outrageous.

It is my first marine diesel so I have nothing to compare to, but since the rebuild it has been very reliable and runs beautifully.
