It is about time to share the cost for our Volvo Penta MD 19 renovation. As said earlier we have done most of the work ourselves and spent some time finding cheap spare parts on the internet. If you want to know more about where we found all the spare parts, click HERE.
Ordered from internet to what we think was a reasonable price. The main issue here was that it was hard to find the correct liners.
We outsourced the service of the cylinder head since we didn’t have the correct tools and this is the price we had to pay for that job.
This post is much of the spare parts we bought, and it includes:
- Crankshaft bearings
- Cam followers
- Push rods
- Engine mounts
- Connection rod bearings
- Freeze plugs
- … and other small spare parts
We had to fix the connection between the heat exchanger and the exhaust manifold due to bad corrosion. We outsourced that part to the same guy that fixed the cylinder head and this is the price we paid for that service.
The service kit we bought for the circulation pump.
Other Engine Renovation cost
This a description of the post for the other renovation costs in the table above.
We made a new crankcase ventilation and this cost is some pipe fittings for that.
We bought a new thermostat since the old one had the wrong opening temperature.
The gearbox looked good and we only did minor changes to it. This cost is for new o-rings, sealings and gaskets for the gearbox.
We left the injectors at a engine shop to do a pressure test of them. They looked pretty okay, and they just adjusted the opening pressure on one of the injectors.
Other small costs
This is a big post and includes all small parts that doesn’t cost that much but together they are a lot. The costs here includes:
- New paint
- Painting brushes
- Cleaning articles
- Dial indicator
- Valve spring
- Different kinds of gaskets
- Fuel hoses
