Volvo KAD43 - Anyone got one? Talk to me!
Sold my sportscruiser (are we allowed to use that word here?!) yesterday and have put deposit on new one. 'New' boat comes with KAD43. My old boat had a KAD32 so i'm familar with the 290 duo-prop outdrive and the general servicing of this engine, including belts etc. all the usual stuff.
Is there anything specific I should be keeping an eye out for on this engine? The engine bay isint too cramped so I can service easily enough. Anyone got any advise (Apart from buying a diesel RIB altogether!) on this engine i'd be grateful. Engine has 140 hours on it since 2002, I don't know if this is a good or bad thing (My 2001 had 530 hours on it when I sold it)
PS. Boat is a Jeanneau Leader 805, again if anyone has any advise then feel free to share! Thanks
