Re: Tuning Volvo Penta 2003

Re: Tuning Volvo Penta 2003

All's well that ends well.

I just tightened them up to "a little bloke with limited arm strength pulling on a 19mm ring spanner from an awkward angle."

Seriously though, the nozzles seemed to...

3x O-rings PN 1698692
3x Gasket washers PN 870581

Well......I'm absolutely delighted to prove you wrong Compass790!

Re: Tuning Volvo Penta 2003

Thanks BlackHeron.

I'm not sure if there is anything wrong with my injectors yet but I tend to grapple with the contradiction between "if it ain't broke don't fix it" versus "take it apart and...

Re: Should I be scared of taking my Volvo Penta 2003 injector pumps apart?

That's a good point Compass790.

I wonder if fuel could slightly bypass internally (high side to low side) without leaking externally and reduce the delivery pressure if those washers are not...

Re: Tuning Volvo Penta 2003

Chuck some ATF in the tank (say 3 or 5%), it sometimes cleans up injectors if they aren't too bad.


Thanks Wotname.

By "ATF" do you mean automatic transmission fluid? I did put some Penrite...

Re: Tuning Volvo Penta 2003

Thanks Ivansgarage.

I did put some expensive cleaning stuff in the fuel but I haven't been able to run it long enough yet to see if it does anything.

Re: Tuning Volvo Penta 2003

Thanks Pete7.

Can you please provide me details of the air filter you used. Does it go in the existing air filter casing or does it replace the casing all together?

Tuning Volvo Penta 2003

Hi all.

I've owned my boat for less than six months but haven't been able to use it as often as I'd like due to Covid lockdowns. However, all is not lost as this has given me some time to get to...
