Volvo Penta AQ151C - dated 1988 or '89
Volvo PowerTrim 290 Drive - still in working condition.
Well after days of trying this and that and all this other stuff, i'm coming to the conclusion that my engine is frozen beyond repair. I'm giving it one last soak with Marvel Mystery oil over night and after tomorrow i am going to start looking for a new engine.
The question is where do i begin to look for an engine? Can I keep my current sterndrive? What can i expect to pay to replace this engine. Do i look for the same rebuilt/remaned Volvo AQ151C or is there a comparable engine that will replace it with very little tweaking?
I am looking at doing this my self and have already begun the dismanteling process (have the strerndrive upper gearbox removed). It looks fairly straight forward. Couple motor mounts, hoses, wires and water intake/exhaust.
