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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • Volvo Penta 572/PS engine and transom/outdrive compatibility

    I have recently purchased a project boat - Bayliner Contessa 28' 1985 in great condition except
    for the engine, transom assembly and outdrive. The engine in it is a Volvo Penta 260A and the
    numbers on the transom assembly in the engine compartment are Drive Unit 867900 8505 serial number 701019. The outdrive itself is a duoprop but has no info on it. I have a complete
    replacement engine which I was advised to get by 3 different volvo Penta guys. It is a 572/PS S/N 4100135937 model #? 868518. Other numbers on the data plate of this engine state: Drive Unit DP-C 872205 and 3102124750 (SN?). It also says Transom assembly 104114011 and 4101508441
    Phew!!! I was advised this engine is a much newer version of the 260A. My question is what
    transom assembly and outdrive are compatible with this engine and the existing hole in the
    boat? Or will I need to adapt something?

    the DPC is one of the aq series drives similar to my 5.7 Volvo C1 Duoprop . it will be the large foot print transom shield... not the small SX DP-S style. your contessa v/p drive is also aq series 280 r so.
    If you plan to use the all of the 572 DP-C drive, youll want to make a template of the dpc transom shield and lay it against the transom cutout and see what needs to be modified..an adapter is not needed.
    The dp-c is an excellent drive system.. id sure use it if it were me.
    should be no issues with the engine and this drive used in the Bayliner Contessa 28' .
    heres a link that will give you parts schematics for the 572

        Here is a drawing that shows the cutout you will need (290-DP-E) for the DP-C transom shield. You now have the 270/280 cutout.
        The drawings shown are with the crankshaft centerlines all in the same spot. That little bit of overlap shown where the 280 is larger is not a problem.
        You can also view the full size template here http://www.4shared.com/document/3ODA...template.html?
        I would suggest getting the full size template from your local dealer to layout on the transom.
