Re: Are Volvos Actually Made by Volvo

For a moment I saw relief on the price of parts for my Volvo MD 17D fresh water cooled beast. Gear box is weak and having to check oil in the transmission everyday is impossible as it is absolutely out of reach on the installation on my Dufour 35.

It is loud, heavy and never stops.

Re: Are Volvos Actually Made by Volvo

What was once Volvo green is now white, except for the valve cover and pick points. Huge PITA.

O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,

Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
