volvo penta parts

I own a twenty year old Maxi with a MD5A Volvo diesal. Can anyone tell me of a good source for parts. I belive the water pump is due to be replaced.

Most Mercury dealers that I''ve dealt with also deal in Volvo parts.

I had an MD7A in my boat that I completely rebuilt before I realized that I really didn''t want an inboard. Volvo parts are expensive to say the least.

If memory serves, I think replaced the block pump with an after market pump from Jabsco.

Last I heard, that engine was still in service at a logging outfit somewhere in Maine.

I was looking for a stacked pump to fit my old volvo, as I was adding fresh water cooling to it. I found Marelco out of Seattle. They seem to stock any Johnson pump you''d need to fit any volvo engine. You can check them out at Their service was excellent and delivery was fast.
