    290 Repower with 5.0 GL-E Engines

    The site totally is a liar ? The parts will not fit ?

    290 Repower with 5.0 GL-E Engines

    Depends on what failed & the rebuilder. Some people are highly unethical. www.volvopentashop.com Shows almost every major part available.

    Suppose your trim tabs STOPPED working in a position that would prevent planning ? Can you SCUBA & have someone operate the tabs thru the ranges & steps ? maybe 1 is in a anchor position? To continue with waterdawgs ideas of how touchy the boat can be . Are both drives operating correctly ? do they track together ? More scuba. NO prop spinning.

    Is any bilge compartment pump not working ? Heavy boat ? Any way to check each floor compartment ? I am way out of my box now.

    DAMM IT………… You say the engines are rev limited in NEUTRAL. Is there the slightest chance that the neutral sensor is loose & extending the revlimiter range ? Would need that limiter to affect both engines as a design feature ? MAYBE ? Worth checking a few service dealers that handle your boat & engines. There is probably no code for the rev limiter neutral operation.

    Anchor recommendations

    My storm anchor is a big flat fluke style with a full length sliding ring on the long shank. Caution These flat flukes WILL WILL dig in VERY VERY DEEPLY ! Last time I used it in mud / sand bottom. I spent5 minutes PULLING with the 30 hp motor in forward going side to side tugging...………… I already had removed the line from the bow & retied it to the cast Aluminum handles at the stern. I went down to the anchor with the 2 line ends & locked them at the chain ring. What a LONG involved battle to pull out of the soft bottom. All this effort in a 16' 15" transom Lowe Aluminum light weight boat. When you let your boat get 2' Waves beat it for a couple of hours ? You might not get the anchor back. Rock ledges & big boulders are Another place not to use Fluke style anchors. A big Mushroom & short chain is easy to free & pull up. In a 2 mile area I have every type of bottom. 40 years ago I was losing2 flukes a year to old fish nets & other abandoned stuff in deeper water. I then switched to smooth chain shackle with the 300' line passed LOOSELY thru the link opening and back to the strong deck cleat . Jammed anchor ? free the none looped end & pull up all of you anchor line. Simple as it gets. Expensive Anchor ? With long expensive braided line ? Do the open loop way. Works in any tangle. Trees roots nets ledges etc. Edit The last ring / loop that the passes thru ?? MUST be PERFECTLY smooth to prevent wearing out the line there. a Caribinier Link is usually very smooth on the inside of the bend. I am on my first coffee.

    How about a failing rev limiter sensor / circuit part ? But both engines run the same. Make & model of engines & drive ratio ? You are approaching Factory engine support point.

    Do remember my 186 has a planning pad at the transom. I can ride on that flat surface above 48 GPS...……. The prop is ventilating easily . If a cheap high slip job. The PTC4 prop looks like a REJECT. Those ridged hooks grab & hold the water. IMPOSSIBLE TO " blow out " the prop doing anything at any speed. I have scared the stuff out of PWC clowns when I roared up behind them & jumped their evasive wakes. After playing their type of jumping . They no longer jumped my wake.

    Do a web search of...……..Power Tech PTC4 6 sites down is my question about them. Hull Truth site. Dated 2014 cyclops2 posted it. I could kiss the prop at 4500.

    For decades Michigan was a leader in high slip props.
