Re: [BaylinerBuccaneerGroup] Volvo Penta MB2/50S
- I got the same motor in my 255. I just went thru it. I had to make a few parts. I also matched up bearings and seals to generic ones. You can still get water pump impellers from Europe! I bought two off of ebay.I also added a starter/generator to it!It is a very quiet and smooth motor. I like it

So I've determined that the inboard in my 255 is a Volvo Penta 50S, which uses gas, not diesel, as I had originally thought.
I posted a pic of the motor. It looks practically mint. The water pump must have gone out on it very early on in its life.
Anyhow...I found the workshop manual. I posted it in the Files section. The drive shaft/water pump looks like it will be pretty easy to rebuild. Looks like the problem will be finding parts.
