Engine repower
Submitted By: kiwipete
Date Created: 06-29-2005
Description: This is the plan:
I have an old Volvo Penta AQ200 / Chev 305 core in my shed that I am going to re-build up to Volvo AQ225D spec and repower my boat with it next winter.
(A V8 always sounds better than a 6 cyl. Right?)
I have been quite succesful in getting most of the trim bits I need to build this up.
So far I have found 5 Exh manifold sets, An intake assy with correct Q'jet carb and flash arrester, engine mount brackets, Damper for the flywheel, Raw water pump assy, Correct oil pan and matching dipstick / tube set.
TradeMe has taken a big hit on this while I gather up all the bits I need to make this look like a Factory Engine of the correct period.
I will photo doc this once the block comes back from the engine shop and the assembly process begins.
