    Re: TAMD41P-A turbo problem

    With engine shut off take the air filter off and see if the turbo spins by hand.
    Who rebuilt the turbos?

    Re: 6v92 TA Detroit

    I know a guy who bent 2 rods from hydrolock.
    One you could not tell by looking at the rod that it was bent.
    But it was enough to make the engine run rough and smoke a lot.
    Scrap it and get a John...
  5. Re: D4 260 2016 ? Opinions of this engine pls

    I think it's a good engine. I'm from Alaska and I know a few commercial guys with D4 225 duoprop and they love them.
    That drive is about bulletproof these days.
    How many hours do you put on a boat...
  6. Can I use counter rotating as a single?

    I have been searching for a used outboard, only 1, not twins.
    I found a c/r engine cheap, can I run that as a single?
    I can't think of any major drawbacks to this but am I missing something?
    On a...

    Re: Thoughts on a 225 ox66???

    Very reliable motor. Thirsty on gas in the upper RPM ranges.
    The OX66 Salt Water Series have almost a cult following due to their reliability.
    Loud but mean sounding, Yamaha knows how to make 2...

    Re: Volvo PA-41 Turbos

    I have 41A's . My port engine did that and it had a lot of exhaust carbon buildup that was making the turbine hard to spin.
  10. Bravo 1 reliability and maintenance requirements ? 4.3-220HP

    I'm thinking of building a small commercial crab boat with a new 4.3 MPI Seacore 220 HP and a Bravo 1 drive.
    I don't abuse drives but there is a lot of shifting while hauling and re setting pots....

  12. Re: Removing fuel injectors on Volvo Penta AD41b

    They can be a real bugger. I have twin engines, so 12 injectors, 1-10 came fairly easy, 11 was real hard, broke the puller. 12 was a nightmare.
    Do you have everything out of the way, the return...

    One of the VP part numbers for the "improved" turbo is 3802070. When you type that part number in the search box just above here at marineengine.com it says, obsolete and gives you no alternative...

    Re: Volvo AD41 Turbo issues again?

    I had both my turbos rebuilt, cheaper than buying new.
    If you buy new don't pay volvo pentas price!
    The 5/8" hose is a common modification and a good one.
