Engine anode for MD7A--Is there one?

Hi,
I just bought a boat (Aquarius Pilot Cutter) with a Volvo Penta MD7A and am going over the engine real good.

Does this engine have an anode? Everything I can find says no, but I am just double checking as this seems strange to me.

Thanks,
Eric

The raw water cooled version of the engine did not have a zinc.

If someone fitted an aftermarket HE cooled system there may be a zinc in the HE.

Rgds,

Thanks for the confirmation. It is a little crazy-making looking for a zinc that is not there.
