Volvo D5 carengine?


Anything that makes it hard to put a Volvo D5 (D5244T) carengine in a RIB? Here in Sweden we can get a used one for ~2000 euros and for the marinversion you'll have to rise the price to around 10 000..

Please, give me as much comments and details as possible..

Thanks! /Sebastian

These people may be able to help - they do a lot of different marinising parts such as heat exchangers etc - shouldn't be too difficult if you have some engineering experience.

Alternatively find a similar damaged engine already coverted for marine use and swap the bits over.
