Volvo Penta 2000 Series
My 1987 35C came stock from the factory with a Volva Penta 2003 engine, a 3 cylinder, 28 horsepower diesel. I've seen Beneateaus and some other makes advertised with this same engine. I am slowly learning about this beast and more than welcome any additional sources of information that anyone can provide (please e-mail to email@example.com). I haven't been able to find much about this engine out on the web, so I have scanned in the owner's manual for the engine in hopes that it may be useful. Another good source of the owners and workshop manuals is motoren.ath.cx and the Library at www.beneteau-owners.com. I'd like to have an actual shop manual for the engine; possible sources according to www.boatdiesel.com are Volvo Penta of the Americas in Chesapeake, Virginia, and Vosbury Marine, Annapolis, MD, 1-800-427-3451, e-mail to Dick Vosbury at Vosburym@aol.com. Incidently, www.boatdiesel.com is a subscriber site started by Peter Compton, author of Troubleshooting Marine Diesels, a book I have found very useful. It costs $25/year to subscribe to the site, but there is a forum on the Volvo 2000 series that made that purchase more than worthwhile.
