Engine of that age is more likely be a 2002 series. Twin cylinder, separate injector pumps, oil filter on the front. Probably got the dodgy MS2 gearbox too.

Re: volvo 18

I installed an 18 hp in 1980, it was not of the 2002 series... not sure when it all changed though. Get a pic when you are there and maybe we could identify it. I guess the seller should know...
