Volvo Penta 2003 (or 2002) - anyone here ever rebuilt one (or had a shop do it)?

Hi all,

Does anyone here have any experience rebuilding (or having one rebuilt) a Volvo Penta 2003 or 2002? (Note: not 2030 and 2020 - different engines.)

I've just discovered that the torque specs in the workshop manual for some of the bolts (big end-con rod and main bearing) are incorrect/confusing. (Some versions of the workshop manual had printing errors, including incorrect piston orientation!)

If anyone here has rebuilt one of these engines, or had it rebuilt by a shop, I'd REALLY like to ask a few simple questions to help me clarify the torque specs. My rebuild is at a standstill until I figure this crap out!

(Also posted in the engine forum and general forum; posted here in an attempt to reach more folks.)
