It is my understanding that the boat had a 165 Horse power Diesel Volvo Penta TAMD 40. I think it had a Volvo Penta 290 Outdrive. I would like to get a newer Volvo Penta maybe a TAMD 43. It should fit the same engine mounts. I dont I will try it myself, but I want to have it recondition in two years. Thanks

Do you know what the original spec was.
