Free...

..to good home.

Does anyone know anyone or anyone know anyone, who knows someone... who..

Would like, free, gratis, buckshee... a Very large Volvo Penta Diesel Engine?

Model, If I remember correctly, is a 100B which is a normally aspirated, 6 cylinder 9.6 litre lump. It's '70s vintage with not a lot of use. Was used to power a Genny set during the oil crisis.... it would suit someone building/re powering a trawler or trawler yacht on the cheap. If it doesn't go in next 48 hours, it's off to the scrappy and that, my friends, would be a crying shame... Only proviso is you come and pick it up from here..

- developing 280hp - consuming 10l of fuel/10km.

That's a pretty good performance.

TD, you could stick it into the Extreme rib... it had plenty of freeboard.....
