Re: Overheating Volvo Penta MD2040

Are you saying to take the "internal" valve out and from the top of the case run the small dia tubing? In essence run the drippage to a drain that leads off of the boat.

this works as well,but is probably better for larger engines,i would not reccomend it on 1 or 2 cylinder engines,where the impellor pump has a very small flow.

Re: Overheating Volvo Penta MD2040

For $20US it is easier to fix that to find a way around it. Seemed like a small problem so never got around to looking into it. Thanks

Re: Overheating Volvo Penta MD2040

Another option is to run a hose from the valve to a bottle so the drips go into the bottle. You do have to be careful to empty the bottle from time to time though.
