    Ovlov charges...

    If anyone has a Volvo D1-13, D1-20, D1-30 apparently it's not uncommon to get a small oil leak from the throttle input shaft. Ovlov will quote north of $1k to fix and insist on taking the whole front of the motor apart to remove timing cover. I saw them and showed them schematics about an easier way that meant only undoing 1 nut and 4 bolts but when the mechanic went to the boat and after inspecting he said it couldn't be done without removing the timing cover. At this point I told them I would do the jib myself! I have successfully completed the job in the way I always thought

    👍 The value of what you have done is more than the out of pocket cost. Its knowing your engine better, Knowing that often the charges for these kinds or repairs are "marine" ...Knowing that often there are other ways. So often you will hear ...leave that to an expert... OK...but if you are in the middle of an ocean passage , you may not have access to said expert...Wouldn't it be better if YOU became that expert ? ....I could say more...but the experts get upset..
