Welcome to the forum...I'm sure if you go into the "Engines and Propulsion systems" area, you will find some help.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, airhamish.

The Volvo MD2B was made between 1970 through 1975, so parts may be rare and expensive.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here.
I hope you have started a thread under the propulsion section. Someone here could be of help. Just because you get spray at the injectors doesn't mean its the right pattern. You probably know that already.
kind regards,

Hello,Airhamish: I have done a quick look to your engine manual,I would suggest to check the compression of your cylinders, and check those decompression levers, just in case they are activated.
Regards, Agustín.
