Volvo parts source in Annapolis/Deale?
Sorry for what is surely a redundant question, but my search efforts failed to find an answer. I'm just looking for a recommendation for a source for Volvo MD7a parts anywhere between Annapolis and Deale, or surrounding area (boat is in Deale). I'm looking for parts like thermostat, gaskets, etc.
I'm replacing the exhaust manifold with a refurb, and the old gasket seemed to come off OK. Is this worth reusing or just go ahead and replace? (I'm inclined to the latter if available.)
Also, when I did a temporary "put together" last fall to move the boat, I used gasket goop to seal pump and thermostat housings because I didn't have the real thing. It didn't matter because there was no water flowing through the engine, but is this stuff a viable alternative?
