Volvo Penta Exhaust Elbow

I had to replace the exhaust riser on one engine ,MD 2010/20 last year,

and expect the other to go soon ! the Volvo type is a poor iron casting , has anyone found a stainless elbow to replace it with ? could an aluminium one be used , like the aftermarket Perkins type?

Yes you will be able to find one. I was going down the same track with an MD2030, but I was advised that stainless and cast iron aren't too friendly as dissimilar metals. Just something to think about.

You can ask a local shop who's profession is stainless steel parts manufacturing.

You're right that the iron casting is poor and needs replacement quite often. If you ever come to Turkey, we can arrange it for you
