Re: Volvo/Penta MD7A
I need a Bosch fuel injection pump for my Md7a marine diesel engine. Please contact me if someone has one that is rebuilt diesel fuel injection pump. Thanks

If you want one that is rebuilt why don't you just get the one you've got rebuilt? The rebuild is the expensive part! If it is just a used one you are looking for you are just going to end up with another person's headaches!

Re: Volvo/Penta MD7A Parts
I just pulled the old MD7A out of my Islander 30: it had very bad blow-by on one cylinder (but still ran fairly well!). I'm parting it out- No fuel issues so Bosh pump should be fine, as is ONE piston. Let me know if you're interested and any other parts... I'm in SF bay area.

Re: Volvo/Penta MD7A
I am interested in the engine - specifically the inj. Pump. Please let me know if it's still available. Thank you

To all posters here -
Contact Marine Diesel Parts Warehouse
I run the MD7a in my Islander Bahama 30 - Original engine, and no idea of original (before me) hours - I have replaced several parts (Including Inj pump) and have found these guys to be the best prices and service by far - they have a great stock of new parts as well as several spare engines/short blocks/parts only units on their floor - they are also very technically adept and know the engine inside and out.

These engines are typical small diesel engines - all it really takes to make them hum is compression and fuel - if they are not running, this is usually the case, and more than 50% of the time its a fuel issue -

Before re-powering, or throwing out the baby with the bath water, give these guys a spin - I'd be surprised if your issues were not solved.

By way of full disclosure, I am NOT connected to this business in any way, but if you've read any of my other posts, you know I do not beat vendors up, but rather share the great ones for everyone's benefit - Fair Winds to all.....

Re: Volvo/Penta MD7A
I recently sold my running MD7A to Joe DeMers at Sound Marine Diesel in CT. Call him at (860) 666-2184 if you're looking for parts or a full swap.

FYI, I replaced with a Beta; the 1977 MD7A was leaking oil and water, and had heating/cooling issues, although it ran great! Diagnosis was bad circulation due to internal corrosion in the cooling passages.
