We have a cat from 1999 with Volvo
motors. Thay have about 4000h or so (the displays are not working anymore).
I have a technical background but not with lots of mechanic
. However, I could get some training.
So what to do with those motors? When asking 'experts' some say for a circumnavivation new motors are highly recommended. The old machines are just nor reliable. Others (the more mechanically oriented people) shake the head
, saying that 1999 is really not old. What should be the problem with them, they ask.
So what would be the real life difference for me?
Certainly we would do a complete check before starting and exchange some critical parts
Would I (probably) have more maintenance
work to do with the old motors? Is it realistic to solve all problems even in the remotest places?
