  1. Weird issue. When idle or engine off stereo works. Then when i rev up and get going the radio cuts off. Like it totally shuts down likes its sensing to much power or heat and shuts off to protect itself. Anyone ever heard of such a thing?

    Question about changing spark plugs

    Publication # 7748089 is the closest i think i can get. It has the similar engines but not my exact V8-320-C-B. Thats ok though for my use it will be good enough to help me thanks to you.

    Question about changing spark plugs

    Yes i do have the navy blue bag which includes the owners manual for the engine but its just doest have enough detail. Im trying to get the service manual for it. Or at least and explanation from volvo why my engine serial number doesnt seem to exist preventing me from ordering a service manual. You rock hatem! Thanks!

    Wish i could get my hands on the manual. Member curt my engine is the weird engine that ya cant find info on.
  6. If i buy volvo penta original spark plugs i shouldnt need to worry about buying a gap adjustmeng tool right? Do you need a torque wrench or can u just tighten till snug? thanks chap family!

    Hull Cleaning

    Starbrite instant hull cleaner knocks that right out. If its still barely there after that i would think rubbing compound and a good buff would finish the job.

    Im at the jersey shore in new jersey. You know the place where they filmed that god awful reality show lol. Hey does your boat have an opening with a plug on the wall that allows you to isolate the ski locker from the bilge area? im not sure what thats for. Ill always leave it off so everything that doesnt drain overboard goes into the bilge area. I figure maybe its there so that if water starts coming in from worn out bellows that you could contain the flooding to only the bilge area perhaps? Know what i mean?

    Yeah i too need to clean my bilge area big time. Ive kept the rest of the boat in mint clean condition but that bilge is yuck. I always have at least a littewater in my bilge not enough to energize the pump but enough to be annoying. I used to hand pump it out but then next day its would rain a little and some new water would always make its way down there. So i gave up. i was thinking about a windlass but i kinda like the anchor out of site when not being used. What area do u live hatem?

    No my alarm went away the new impeller fixed the problem. I just forgot to inspect the inside of the housing which of course should always be done. I was just going to go back in to check that just for precautionary measures.

    Unfortunately that online tool does not recognize my engine as curt found out something is up with my serial#. I definitely do not have a af resevoir on my engine. unfortunately when i changed my impeller i did not properly inspect the inside of the housing. Typical rookie mistake i guess. Well i guess i will have to do that now. Ugh there is so little room to work on this front of the engine area its def no fun but thanks for making that point.
