jimrafford I wanted to check my owners manual this weekend.
Max rpm is 3200. Cruise is 80% of that. We do 2600.

This is the model. The 2000 series 2001,2002,2003,2003T were built in the mid to late eighties. The worst engines Volvo ever built. They followed these with the 20** series e.g. 2030 for the 3 cylinder job.

I don't know what the 2003 designates but you can get a download manual for 2003 series diesels here ...

Publication search - Publications / Manuals : Volvo Penta

Max rpm is 3200. Cruising should be in the manual.

harbin2 I'd say yes. I have an Islander 30 Bahama. It is 8,300 lb, has a Volvo MD7A (13hp) and has a two blade fixed prop. It doesn't have a lot of power to start and stop but it will cruise at 6 knots at 2,400rpm (max is 2,600). I recently corrected a small overheating problem and not the engine starts and runs fine.
Good Luck.

MD7, 13 hp any good?

I'm interested in a 7-8 thousand pound sailboat with an MD7 engine and a non-folding 2 blade prop. I am wondering if the motor is adequate for extreme conditions (wind & current). I aspire to visit Florida via the Mississippi from Minnesota.

ALSO SEE YouTube - ‪Hand starting the SABB diesel single in cold weather‬‏

While I have never hand started a Volvo diesel I have hand started an old 2 cylinder Lister a number of times and
1 use the decompression lever,
2 wind it as fast as you can
2 flick the lever.

If cold introduce a piece of burning oil soaked newspaper into the inlet manifold just before flicking the lever.

I never had it kick back.

apieschel I have used the hand crank very successfully on my older MD2. It is safe to do and 3rd world often uses manual crankingspecially in isolated places. I have even poured a quarter cuplube oil in the air intake as recommended by a fisherman in Brasil. It works wonderfully but of course I was young and strong.
