Just come back from a Volvo evening do, quite interesting.

Thought that was offered a couple of replys ago??????????

Still the Volvo Memo had more clout than experience/time/and hours done??

Has the salesman's patter got more influence than the user here maybe?

Hope you have had time to take you Volvo tie off.......

Its just a talk about maintaining and servicing your engines.

cheaper to buy Volvo complete kits than to buy individual bits

and dont chuck broken worn bits away as you can get exchange parts which are reconditioned or in some cases new.

Thats a bit unfair Pete

I was talking from fact as I have had my props virtualy disintergrate on me and if you really knew me you would know that I would NEVER EVER EVER wear a Volvo tie. If you read my prev posts or do a search on ybw then you will find out that I spent 4 months out of the water during the season thanks to Volvo so please dont insult me...call me names but dont tell me I have an allegance to Volvo.

I had the memo cos I managed to get it to back up my claim that I should not have been given the boat with Alu props, but thats another story.

Sorry for the delay in replying, I missed your post.

Probably not worth carrying a spare, you have to split the drive to replace it. It broke due to shifting whilst engine revving to high, one of the pitfalls of twin lever controls, and I believe the reason for most of the Yanmar/Bravo 3 breakages.

You might also be interested to know that a couple of days ago I was informed by AS at Volvo that they are discontinuing the DPX in a couple of months time. Very sad to hear that!

Cheers Dirk. Apparently all Volvo drives use this breaky piece.
