    In my continuing efforts to finish rebuilding the Cape Dory 30, I tackle the sticky inboard rebuild. In my case it's the Volvo MD7A. With parts not being made, it's a challenge finding them but in my experience but for the most part a thorough online and offline searching yielded me results...

    Hello everybody, I'm having problems with my volvo penta (surprise). After fueling up at the gas dock, the engine started right back up, ran for about 5 seconds, and then died. Wouldn't start back up but cranks fine. I've replaced all filters, and vented the fuel system. The problem now is I...

    I've got a Volvo Penta MD7A with a failed CAV fuel injector pump. I'm removing it but want to make sure it is timed properly when I re-install it. The timing marks on the flywheel and block are rusted/painted over and I can't find them. I have no idea where to even start looking for them...

    Hi, Just back from a cut short weeklong cruise because the engine will not run past about 16 to 1800. It would run faster but only for a little time. Being only 8hp to start with that equates to about 2.5 knots with no headwind. I replaced the prefilter Racor, it was a bit dirty. No change, I...
