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.

  • 1996 Volvo Penta 5.0 cooling system question

    hello and thanks ahead for helping
    I recently purchased a boat which has been sitting for some time (96 chris craft) and as you would expect it has some issues,
    first and foremost, I am now working on my starboard engine and it runs well, but on the cooling system,
    can someone tell me what the part/item is that the raw water pump first pumps water to? its located in the center of the engine just behind the black cover, looks to have fuel lines going in and out of it, and the raw water pump hose goes directly there and then out,,, its completely clogged. It looks to me like some type of fuel cooler, but I cant find any pictures or info on it
    thanks

      How about a picture of yours? If you are sure those are fuel lines going to and from it, then yes it would be a fuel cooler although I'm not familiar with Volvo using those.

      A full model number or serial number would be handy for us. There were many models of the 5.0 produced around 1996.

            Im trying to upload a picture, but as usual, not successful, anyway, I believe its under the fuel pump, or part of the fuel pump, I cant find any info on this part, why is that??? its always a nightmare trying to find parts etc, even with the serial number parts stores have an issue, yesterday I went to a Volvo Penta dealer and its always the same story,,"oh you have that year" we need the serial number,, hoping I dont have it,,, I say here it is!! and the face usually follows, like they are doing me a favor trying to take my money.... all I needed was an exhaust nipple from the riser to the elbow,,, still waiting for the day the boat industry catches up with the rest of the planet on spare parts,,,, I dont think its going to happen in my life time
            anyway, this part looks like its under the fuel pump, basically attached to the bottom of it, and fuel lines def go to it, so it has to be a cooler of some sort, I have it bypassed at the moment , but that cant be good. If anybody out in the world can give me any info on this part, I would appreciate it,
            No parts on ebay
            None on the internet that I can find
            The parts store thinks Im out of my mind, apparently this year Volvo Penta ,, they went out of their way to make it difficult to find any kind of spare parts,, Frustrating to say the least

              I have the same year Chris Craft and and same motor...albeit only one!!!

              So if it's fuel injected it more than likely a 5.0Fi if it's carbureted it's most likely a 5.0FL (both are FORD Based motors).

              Those are weird years as the motors are listed as OMC and the Outdrives are labeled as Volvo Penta SX or DP!?
              Does your motor have distributor in front or back? If it's in front, then it's a FORD based 5.0L (302ci) if the distributor is in the rear, then you have a GM based 5.0L (305ci)?

              Mine's a 502APNCA model it's listed on the inside port side valve cover! What you're inquiring about is (as others have mentioned) is the power steering cooler it comes off the water inlet hose it has 1 1/2" hose with 2 smaller 3/8" lines running to it from the return line from the PS ram.

              You're not out of your mind...have your local shop order Volvo Penta parts...most are direct fits...if there's any confusion, PM me and I'll get you the correct part number?

              Also, you'll find the complete Engine manual at Boatinfo - boat brochures and manuals for boats and marine engines! for sanity's sake, use the OMC Manual (1986-1998)...it's got you covered?!

                Here's the part number for the PS cooler... 3851921 ($190.78) from HERE

                Also, posting pics takes time as a newbie...put them in Photobucket.com or somewhere similar and post the link...that way we can assist in getting you the information needed!

                  Hey Brett, thanks for all the good info
                  my engines are 5.0 Fi injected, the distributor is in the front and I do know they are Fords,
                  I dont think the item is a power steering cooler, I do know my way around engines and dont see any way its connected to the steering
                  I do see a fuel pump and fuel lines going to it, I will try again now to post a pic

                    ok, here is the picture of the unit Im talking about, the unit is in the center of the pic, the green wire sits on top of it and supplies power to the fuel pump, just below that black pump, if you look real close to the right you will see an aluminum oxidized hose connector fitting that is trashed,
