2350 and Volvo Outdrive repairs

Postby AndyB » Wed Jun 26, 2019 2:30 pm

As part of binding the insurance on my 2350, I was supposed to have the bellows inspected by a shop. First guy was really backed up and I gave up on him. Took it to the Volvo Penta dealer in town and they took it apart. Uncovered some problems that have to be addressed now.

Exhaust flange is corroded to heck and broken. Suspension fork is corroded almost in half around the raw water connection. Looks like the boat is stuck on the trailer for now until I find a replacement drive or the parts needed.

EDIT: Don't know why they're sideways...

2350 and Volvo Outdrive repairs

Postby AndyB » Fri Jun 28, 2019 2:00 pm

I've located a freshwater DP-A I'm picking up tomorrow to replace this one. Going to change the fluids, grease it up, and run the "new" one through the rest of the summer. Trying to minimize down town currently.

In the meantime I'm going to slowly pull this one apart and reseal the upper and lower units. Rehab it and this winter assemble a fully rehabbed drive out of the two.

Step 1: drain the oil. Very slighly milky in the bottom must mostly just real dark. Wonder when the last time this was changed. Annnd some metal shavings...hmmm not a stellar start

Plugging along with the replacement drive.

Saturday:
pull out of the driveway at 3:45 AM to drive to Atlanta, purchase the reaplacement drive, get home by 3:00 PM

Sunday:
built a stand to assist with installation
swapped over the reverse latch assembly
off to enjoy the rest of the weekend with the GF

Tuesday night after work:
greased up the Ujoint and splines
attached new bellows on the boat side
walk back and forth to the trailer winch 5,000 times getting the back of the boat aligned with the stand exactly right height wise
shimmied the new drive on
knock on wood, I was able to get the drive shaft splines aligned and get it slid onto the shaft in about 20 minutes of jimmying it around
install the hinge pins

The locking screws for the hinge pins seem to have boogered up treads on the transom shield side. I'm going to have to go get a tap and re-cut the threads. It doesn't really hold anything, just keeps the hinge pin from backing out with vibrations.

Another tip, slide a prop back onto the prop shaft to make it easier to turn while trying to align with the drive shaft splines.

She’s all put back together. Looks like hell all different colors but she’s back in business. Cosmetics aren’t for July projects! :-D

Test ran Saturday after the 4th, spent Sunday after the 4th on the water all afternoon, and another evening cruise tonight after work. Now if somebody would turn the fan off in the Carolinas so we can go grocery shopping for bottom fish.
