Can anybody tell me where I can get a replacement heat-exchanger for this engine?
Would I be cheaper replacing the whole engine or replacing the whole boat (CT41)???

I found that Volvo in Sweden, through my parts guy at Chase-Leavitt Marine in Portland, Maine, had everything I needed for my 1970 MD2B. I rebuilt the entire top end and was amazed that I could get parts for a 30 year old motor. Either call Chase-Leavitt or track down a local Volvo Marine Diesel shop and you can get the part shipped within a couple of days. I almost think Volvo actually made a couple of the parts I needed to fill my order....

That sounds great... thought I was going to have to sell the boat to pay for the engine to be rebuilt.
MANY thanks for you time.
