repowering

I'm repowering my 32' samson C-mist this year. I was going to go with a kubota, but my volvo dealer is right across the street from my work and are great guys (friends actually). The price is better as no shipping & the volvo will also fit my engine closet better. Has anyone any feedback on the new D2-40? I have already pm seafox about his.

Also I thought I might get away without changing my prop. as I can get a LH turning trans. with the volvo. I have a 13'' 3 blade thats been turned by a yse12 reduction is 2/3. volvo is 1:96/1

If I have to re-prop then should I go with a RH trans. with a choice of 2:14/1 or 2:63/1

Your engine Hp is different and the shaft speed is different. Prop Daimeter is most likely OK, but you will need to re-pitch to suit.
Samson C-mist, nice, is she FC ???

Are you sure you could get a LH D240? I've been trying to figure out from the specs of the D130 whether they are showing forward and reverse ratios or whether they actually offer RH and LH forward prop rotation.

I can't imagine repowing with a new Volvo. I can imagine having to repower if you already own one.

I've had two Volvo's in my boat ownership. They are expensive to work on, don't hold up well, and will need more service than most alternatives. Stick with Kubota or Yanmar.

The new volvo will be ready for pick up when I get off the ship at months end. (took a job on a ferry)
Really hoping it was a good choice, it was my only choice if I want a local dealer. I ordered the left hand turning trans. it was no trouble to get. I will update when install begins.
