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 50 hour service?

    My 2010 boat has 45hours on it and am coming up to my engine's break in 50 hour service inspection. I've already changed the oil this spring with fresh mineral oil 10w30 and new filter at 30 hours for a piece of mind. Boat is running top notch with no issues ( knock on wood)

    What else is required for the inspection? The manual doesn't list anything that needs to be changed. Any help would be appreciated so when I bring it to my dealer I know I won't be getting screwed, not that they have done that to me so far but just so I know whats needed.

    Thanks!

    What's the full model number or serial number of your engine? Only way to find info on a 2010 engine.

      Volvo Penta 4.3L GL-J ( V6 Gasoline 262 Cu.in.) , SX-A (Ratio 1.79) outdrive. I'm not going to openly toss out my serial number on a public forum, but if you need it I can PM it to you.

        The GL-J is all I needed.
        It's odd, the J model has been around since 07 but the 2010 and 2011 manuals don't show the 50 hour service at all
        I did download the Dec 08 manual and it did have it. Below shows what is in the 50 hr service.
        You can download the manual yourself at http://www.volvopenta.com/volvopenta...on_search.aspx

          Thanks Don, from the looks of it they are just going to do a quick glance at everything which is pretty much everything I do myself prior to a trip to the lake. I'm hoping now that there is the 4.3L GL-P, SELOC will come out with a repair manual already for the 2007-2010 years so I can avoid the dealer for most things.
