    Happy post Xmas to all. I may be looking to do a repower in the future and wondering if anyone has thoughts on a fool proof way? Michigan Motorz sells pre-vortex long blocks which is the closest I can find to a solution that will fit under my 1986 24' engine cover. My understanding is vortex...

    Looking to defeat reverse lock on Volvo Penta OD

    What sucks is at the most opportune times, like pulling up to the slip, fuel dock, mooring, I hit reverse and the F'ing outdrive pops out of the water. Ive been down there and cleaned everything on the little catch, pulled, yanked, even replaced everything (springs, catch, etc.) a few years...

    Yeah... that was me that attempted to organize the float at the Isthmus. Had it set up pretty good, was even going to make shirts, etc.. Just hard to heard the cats at the time. I'm down and have cycles if anyone wants to attempt to spark it up again.
