Thread: NEW engine help

  1. #1

    Default NEW engine help

    This has been a 2 month project. New volvo penta 5.0gi pefs / sx drive. Engine cranks, idles perfect on muffs, will accelerate nicely, no issues. Went to lake for first time. Engine running great, put in gear and it dies. Cranks up, dies everytime when placing in fwd or reverse.
    HELP... any ideas?
    This is my first rebuild not sure where to start with this one

    Does the volvo penta 5.0gi like mine have a shift interrupt switch?

    I adjusted the shift cable on the outdrive. Seems to be working
