parts identification

6 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me if parts put on an engine will have some sort of identifying serial number and if so where are they located, for a Volvo' penta fuel pump, starter, computer. I am trying to gather evidence to sue the marina that cheated me on their repair services.

Google image search is your friend ...

The ECU has a visible label with its serial number and other data. I have seen the label on my ECU. Depending on your model, it could look like this ...
volvo%20penta%20egc%20ecu%20marine%20388

The fuel pump most likely has the label with serial number. I think I saw one on my pump, and it looked like this ...

I am afraid you might not find a serial number on the starter. I have not noticed any serial number, just part number on the label. If you are lucky, there seem to be a manufacturing date stamped on some of them ...

Thanks for the info. My mechanic is coming out today and am going to ask him if can verify some of these parts. If I can prove he swindled me, then we go to court.

I called Carter and Volvo Penta for information as to date of manufacture of my fuel pump: they could tell me.

Her are the numbers on my pump;

Carter

P61639S     21608511

SAE J1171 Marine

16A08B    (don't know whether the number is a zero, or the letter O)

I am trying to ascertain the date of manufacture of the pump so I can nail these lying thieves!

Thanks,

Get this, the marina was sold and is now under new ownership. I'm afraid my quest for justice just took a mighty set back.

But I did run into the service manager at a dockside bar. Guess what he docked at the bar, a brand new 38' Cigarette with all the extras. At least I know that some of my money went to good use. He could have just wasted it on women and drugs.
