I have a Volvo Penta
2003 in my C&C
35 MK II. The original engine
was an Atomic 4. On my last trip the impeller would no longer turn in the water pump
. The impeller was fine. Back at the dock
I took off the water pump
and found that the plastic gear
in the back of the water pump
had broken to the point where it would no longer turn the impeller shaft.
I am ordering new parts
and will re-assemble and install the water pump
but I am not sure that the impeller installed by a Volvo
Dealer when he installed the engine
is the correct one.
It seems to me that it is way to hard to turn.
The impeller that I have been using is 3862281 and it is a kit. I have been surfing and have found an impeller for MD 2003 and the number is: kit part number 3586496
Would the MD 2003 be the same as the 2003? I find Volvo Penta
naming conventions rather confusing.
What impeller kit do others use for this engine?
Thank you for any help and feedback.
