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 service manuals no longer open?

    Volvo Penta service manuals no longer open? Or am I not finding the one that now do open? I was in the Volvo section the late DonS set up, under free manuals and no go? Can some one give me the correct links to the manuals? I have a 1995 Four Winns, 200 Horizon, humpback Volvo Penta Cobra Sx drive, 5.0 litre Ford carburetor engine. Drive, engine, electrical controls...etc would be great.
    Thank You

    Most service manuals can be found on boatinfo.no in the manuals/Volvo penta section. You'll want your actual model numbers though, as boat year doesn't mean much.

            I wouldn't solely rely on online manuals and the boatinfo.no is a perfect example of why you shouldn't.

              Many, many links to online manuals are drying up. When Don S and others provided links to manuals, the source was valid. However, as an example, Mercury/Brunswick goes to great lengths to protect copyrighted material which is a source of revenue and they force the online repositories to remove manuals.

              Unfortunately, this is the world we live in now and a hard copy or CD copy from manufacturers is becoming the only way to get OEM manuals. You can buy Clymers or Seloc manuals, but many years and models jumbled together making it hard to find what you need on a particular motor/drive.

              As far as Boatinfo, I think they are done. The site has come and gone several times in the past couple of years, but the new message is saying the host has cut them off. They may return and then again, they may not.

                    then go the hard way and call volvo penta and find out the service manual via your year and model number.

                      You can also find out what model you have by the serial number of the drive. Just a little harder.
