Volvo Model 2003 Hot Water Connection

I have a 1987 Volvo Model 2003 engine. I'd like to connect a hot water system to the "fresh water" side of the engine. Ther do not appear to be any connections on the fresh water cooling system to easily tap into. Does anyone have experience connecting a hot water system to the fresh water side of this engine?

Thanks

I have two Volvo's (I know, I know, lucky me ) and both have outlets for coolant ( for a hot water heater, bus type heater, etc). I would strongly recommend calling your local Volvo dealer, they should be able to email or fax a diagram of your engine indicating which are the ports to use. My local dealer, Coastal Marine in Seattle has done this several times for me. Better than hoping to get it right from advice here on the forum.

I have Volvo's install manual for the 2002 and it shows the connectons.
I can send you a pdf file of that page.

OOPS. You said a 2003. My manual covers 2003 motor also.
