In this blog post we will share where we found the spare parts for our Volvo Penta MD19 (which is very similar to Volvo Penta MD21). Some of the spare parts were really hard to find, so hopefully this will help someone.
Most of the spare parts
We ordered most of our parts from Der Franzose. The Volvo Penta MD19 is based on an Indenor XDP-4.88 engine, which was used in some Peugeot cars, with external Volvo Penta parts to adapt it to a marine engine. From Der Franzose we ordered:
- Crankshaft bearings
- Cam followers
- Push rods
- Engine mounts
- Connection rod bearings
- Freeze plugs
- … and other small spare parts
Liners & Pistons
It was very hard to find new liners for our engine. After searching through the whole internet (at least that’s what it felt like) we found them on Citroworld. It was a complete kit with:
- Piston rings
Non-original Volvo Penta Parts
At the website CromMarine we found non-original Volvo Penta parts. From CromMarine we bought:
- new gaskets for the heat exchanger
- a new thermostat
Gear box sealings
Sealing for our gear box we bought seperately at the swedish store, Kullager.se. They had the right measurements and this was a cheaper way to buy them.
Service Kit Circulation Pump
We ordered a service kit for the circulation pump from Indenor-retro. The service kit included:
- pump wheel
- shaft sealing.
Now when we found all our spare parts for our Volvo Penta MD19, the next step will be to put the engine back together with the new spare parts. If you want to read more about our service of a Volvo Penta MD19 engine, more blog posts can be found under the category Engine.
