Volvo offers rebuilt engines

ADVERTISEMENT

Volvo Penta announced at the Miami International Boat Show a new expanded line of factory direct, remanufactured blocks for marine gasoline engines.

The Volvo Penta 5.0-, 5.7- and 8.1-liter V8 remanufactured long blocks are produced to factory specifications using state-of-the-art computer-controlled robotic manufacturing systems, providing original equipment durability and performance. They are built with new parts from the original equipment manufacturer. The valves, pistons, bearings, timing chain, head gaskets, brass freeze plugs and oil pump, for instance, are replaced with new pieces that are equivalent to or better than a new marine engine. They come with a one-year factory warranty.

“These factory remanufactured systems will give our dealers and customers a lower-cost alternative to new engines for repowering applications with no sacrifice in quality and performance,” said Ed Monacchio, vice president of after-market and customer support of Volvo Penta Region Americas. “We intend to expand our line of remanufactured products for other popular Volvo Penta engine models during the coming year.”
