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 elseís 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 itís posted at the end of someone elseís 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 engine anodes

    I have a 2006 Volvo Penta 5.0GXi-G engine and I cannot find the engine anodes. I have a service manual that points to where they should be, but my engine seems to be different. I purchased the boat from the previous owner who had the boat in fresh water. The outdrive started to corrode before I realized it was fitted with the wrong anodes. I have now correctly replaced with seawater anodes but want to be sure any anodes on the engine are also checked.

      Never heard on an anode for the engine block, just the outdrive. Maybe I haven't been paying attention?

        Good chart AD, but it's hard to see. Any way to post it some way that it can be downloaded and zoomed in on? Or link to it somewhere? Thanks

          No anodes on the engine



          These are for the SX-A and the DPS-A. You don't say what your out drive is
          The anode on the right will be underneath the gimble ring the other one mounted on top where the exhaust comes out of the drive

            Agree with others, knowing which drive helps more then the motor. I zoomed in on the pic but it doesn't help much. So made a couple other pics and maybe between others and these it will let you know what you need/have

                Thanks I have found and changed the anodes (2 of them) on the SX/A outdrive . I purchased the do it your self manual from Volvo and in the book they talk about pencil anodes on the outlet manifold but the drawings in the manual look nothing like my engine.

                      Usually just on the outdrive with your engine.
                      Easy way to find out is to just Google and order a set for your engine set up.
                      Usually consist of an anode behind prop, on trim rams and on the transom shield.
