View Full Version : Engine Swap

I just bought an 18' 70's model starcraft with a Volvo Penta 130 motor and a 270T outdrive. I think the motor is no good due to improper storage. Any ideas ? what other motors are compatible with this outdrive ? where can I find another 130 motor. Any help is appreciated.

"If it's the GM/ Chevy based 3.0l,....

It's the Same Long Block used by Mercruiser,+ OMC,+ Volvo...........

There's quite a few of them around,..... I've got a Complete, Plug & Play Merc sitting in the garage that's looking for a New Home......
But,... You won't be needing all the Merc. Stuff,+ I'm not going to strip it down......

Then again,..... I know that Volvo Also used 1 of their Own 4 bangers,.... You Might, or may Not have 1 of Those......"

"Hey, Bondo: Check the OMC page. There's a guy in need of a 3.0 on there.

"This is a Volvo B20, same as the old Volvo 140 cars before they changed to B21.
Not many 'bolt-on'alternatives."
