Re: Need some information about Volvo Penta 24HP

The MD2B is closely related to my later MD17C.
A water pump is not that expensive. Jabsco make one that will fit.
A fuel injector is going to be pricey but still affordable. How do they know the fuel injector has malfunctioned? Have they tested it?
Be careful they do not mean an injection PUMP. That really will be expensive.

Bent pushrods are puzzling me. I can't see a reason for that happening.

Unless the motor is running and seen to be running, and able to run for hours I would not touch it.
If the motor "just" needs anything, then why has the last owner not "just" fixed it????
Please be careful.

Re: Need some information about Volvo Penta 24HP

Just as a word of warning.

From e-bay, this very day, this is the typical cost of a non-consumable part from Volvo, this time for the Volvo MD17C...

Volvo Penta Exhaust Manifold Fits MD17C MD17D Engines | eBay

...and yes, that really does say $1495, close to £964, for a second-hand exhaust manifold. You could buy a brand new Kubota 38 hp, from Beta Marine, for 7 of those, and if Beta Marine ever try to rip you off, you can go to a fork-lift engine supplier, and they will be far more reasonable.

Anyway, welcome to Volvo spare parts prices, exhaust manifolds this time, $1495, and it is not even new!
