Volvo penta ms2ae gearbox help

Started up this morning with no motion, go down the hatch to find the oil fill cap blown off and the shaft sticking up through the hole. I found a repair manual that appears to be above my head. Anyone have a suggestion on where to get one rebuilt? I also understand i cant take this out with the boat in the water? If this is the case i may need a place to swap out a core for a refurbed one. Also, can anyone tell me the difference between and ms2ae and an ms2ad? I found an ad model for sale that looks right and maybe they can be interchanged?

Re: Volvo penta ms2ae gearbox help

Hello Tkeeth,

Sorry to hear of your problems.

There is very little difference between the MS2A-D and MS2A-E....the "E" was the follow-on model to the D. The difference was that the E model had shot peened gear wheels for a bit more strength, and the E used heavy gear oil instead of engine oil.

I cant see any reason that the gear cannot be removed from the boat with the boat still in the water unless there is something that would preclude sliding the shaft back a little. Just shut the cooling water thru hull valve, disconnect the hoses, cable and mounting bolts and pull it out.

What engine is it mounted to? There shouldnt be any problem interchanging the models if they are the same reduction ratio.

I have a new-in-the-box MS2A-D gear in the 2.40:1 ratio if you are interested in a new unit. (There were two ratios available, 2.04:1 and 3.00:1)
