My long distance cruising days are over. I will only be cruising in Southern NE... weekends and vacation cruises. I don't need to carry spares as one does when one "leaves" it all.

I don't think I will use this so I am going to offer it for sale here or on ebay. They are hard to come by.

Bit of a prob when they quit somewhere very remote.... Its far easier to find someone to fix things than it is to get the bits that you need even if they are posted.... they will probably end up being held by customs somewhere.

Sandero, I think it depends on where you are going and how long you plan to keep the engine. If it was me I would keep it.

Don't know about spare engine parts taking up a lot of space. My only two big bits ( starter motor and alternator) live under my bunk. The other stuff all lives in one locker and consists of a FW circ pump, 2 lift pumps, head and manifold gaskets, a couple of regulators, together with belts, impellors, filters etc.
I have another locker full of domestic plumbing fix it parts.

Ping the Parts man....

Edit .. Just saw your latest.... even if you are only 50 miles from home the ability to fix something is no bad thing.

The rebuild is likely the seal and I have a great local place with good prices and fast turn around... which negates the need for carry this part as a spare. The engine is not supported by Volvo any more and only the basic parts are available I think.

Did you sell the pump or is it still available?

No I have it as a spare... Sorry You can find them used... at some Volvo dealers... but you may need to get it rebuilt... that happened to me and then I rebuilt the original one.
