Volvo PN 3803543 Replaced by 3801641 Question

2015-03-05 15:54

Hello Sir:
As we talked on the phone, Volvo Penta says both the original 300 head 3803543  is superseded by a 3801641.  The 3801641 is supposed to come out sometime in 2015.  But as Volvo Penta was unable to give me a quarter or even tell me which vendor is going to be making it I suspect that either it has not gone out to quote yet or if sent out, they received no bids.   But this is just my guess.

The original 44 head (which is the same as the 300 head although it had its own part number) supersedes to the 3803543 which in turn goes to the new number 3801641.  

However, I did find a fellow dealer that has a partially rebuilt KAMD44P.  He would rather sell the whole engine as a whole, but he is willing (grudgingly) to take off the head and sell it to us.  The price is a bit steep, but it is not all that much more than a new head if one was available.  The head has been rebuilt and is in perfect new condition.  He offers a one year warranty on it as well. If you go with this, I would bring the head in here and examine it and magniflux it to make sure  that it was perfect condition before sending it out.  I trust this guy as we do a lot of business, but it is always good to check.
