Marine Parts Express Workarounds

Over the years, Marine Parts Express has come up with a variety of work-arounds and options for No-Longer-Available (NLA) or Expired (EXP) parts or systems. Don't despair if you can't find a part as we may have a solution. Two of the latest examples of our work-arounds are as follows:

On Volvo Penta gas engines using the Ford block, the lower thermostat housing (#3853245) is NLA. But, we have manufactured a nifty replacement housing (#3853245MPE). See image below.

On Pleasurecraft gas engines using the Ford block, the lower thermostat housing (RA025001 or RA25001) is NLA. But it is possible to use the #3853245MPE along with a Volvo Penta #3850360 to replace the lower and upper thermostat housing (R025002). Don't forget matching gaskets: 3852456 & 3852111.

On Volvo Penta Diesel 41, 42, 43, and 4 series engines, the cover for the electrical box  (#860779) is NLA, but we have manufactured a relacement that works well: #860779MPE.
