Re: Question on Volvo MD6A problems

Update: pump came back in excellent rebuilt condition..The motors has been completely reassembled and guess what? It runs like a top :-). Sounds good, starts easily. Have ran the engine for a few hours up in the garage and everything is running as it should. Oil is clean/no fuel in it. Water is pumping good and clean no oil/diesel. Only one issue remains..

On the end of the transmission where it would bolt up to the shaft there is oil coming out..slowly..but its leaking around that seal. Went to look up the part it may need and found about 10 different transmissions this motor had. grrr
Does anybody know where the tranny is marked? I cant for the life of me find which one it is..

I'm all excited to get the engine back in the boat and after personally doing a complete teardown/clean out /rebuild I find myself stumped by a lousy seal on the tranny..sigh...

Any ideas gang?
