Thanks but I need to know specifically for C30. The original Atomic 4 was installed at a 15 degree angel with direct drive. This 2002 gearbox seems to be already angled and I dont know what degree. Maybe I would have to fiberglass new rails?

Be very wary of Volvo 2000 series engines. Do a search.

I would be interested as well but mine runs great right now (knock on teak). Might as well do what I have to this Winter when it's easy so let me have both barrels as well.

Maybe this is why. Your search should have found this.

You should try the C30 yahoo group. Very active and helpful for Catalina specific questions.

Re: Penta 2002 in Catalina 30

We have a 2003, but not in a C30, so can't help you there.

The most common reversing gear with an angle was the MS2, which had a 7 degree down angle. The engine was offered with a number of reversing gears, but I think if you're seeing an angle that's probably it.

You can get all the specs (which may help measure for yourself since no one has answered directly) here:

http://www.volvopenta.com/VOLVOPENTA/GLOBAL/EN-GB/MARINE_LEISURE_ENGINES/OUT_OF_PRODUCTION_ENGINES/Pages/out_of_production_engines.aspx

Enter "2002" in the "Engine Type" box and it will bring up all of the 2002 information (except of course for the service manual itself).
