Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Volvo Penta Outboard: oldie - identify?

    I have a Volvo Penta small outboard engine, long shaft, all black with red 2-blade prop with the following two numbers on it:
    On top, on pull-cord housing: 3576827
    On side on riveted plate says: Volvo Penta 1.034363501 Uppsala - Sweden. That's a decimal following the"1"
    I've searched Volvo sites - nothing. Anybody know, or know where to search?
    To go on a 23-foot sailboat. Probably too small but could put on a dinghy, too.

    welcome aboard

    the casting number on the pull cord housing does nothing.

    post a pic or two (you have to have a few more posts under your belt)

      I have an old Volvo Penta outboard, very small, probably only a couple of horsepower.
      I want to rehab, rebuild, if possible, and use on a sailboat, 23 ft Venture of Newport.
      Does anybody know anything about this old engine? Or where to find out?
      Riveted metal plate says VOLVO PENTA 1.034 363 501 UPPSALA SWEDEN.
      And stamped into metal on top of pull-cord housing is VOLVO PENTA 3576827
      Photos attached.

        I have an old Volvo Penta 2-cycle 1 cylinder outboard made in Uppsala, Sweden.
        The riveted serial # tag says 1.034363501
        Long shaft.
        I want to rehab it and use it on a small sailboat.
        Does anyone know how to find out model number, where to get parts, tips on rebuilding?

          Do you want to use it because it's an old motor and you like that kind of stuff, or do you just want a small motor for this boat?
