md17d circulation pump

Post by Andy Bone » Sun Jun 09, 2019 2:06 pm

Hello All
I have a Mirage 29 Aft cabin with twin Volvo Penta MD17D engines on shafts.
The port engine circulation pump has packed up (not the raw water pump)
Volvo tell me that the part is now unavailable.
I could probably rebuild it myself as I have a press and bearing pullers etc but no idea where to get the bearings,seals and impellers.
I cant believe that this popular engine has a water pump that is now obsolete, a water pump on a car or truck engine is considered a consumable part that wont last forever
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

just an update for anyone who has the same problem,
S P waterpumps in warrington repaired the pump for me they replaced the bearings and seals and even made me a new gasket and painted the pump Volvo green.
they turned the job round in a day and the pump works great.
I also found a company in sweeden that does an electric conversion for this, it consists of an electric pump,a new heat exchanger,expansion tank and all the hoses and connections you need to do the job.
It looks like a propper bit of kit but with a price tag of £800 it's on my wish list for now.
