Well I just saw your photo and I can see very well why folks would not think your age is 64. Very lovely lady. It's all that good sailing!

Re: Used motors

Mass parts has 2 engines that would work in your boat.. both universal. an 11 and a 25. 11 would do.. 25 a bit too much.

Re: Used motors

Not sure I'd replace an MD7A with another one but here is a Utube video of one for sale:

This motor is in a Sabre so it will be a LH Rotation. I'm not sure what the rotation is for the MD6A but that will be an important part of the decsion making process.

Asking $2500.
Since finding parts for this Volvo engine is difficult I'd consider biting the bullet and getting a brand (Kubota) where parts are available and cheaper. Several brands of diesel engines were built around Kubota blocks and Kubota still makes tractors, hence engines.

Re: Used motors

I hear you. The engine was rebuilt in 97 from what the past survey says.
