Try boatdiesel.com - i was able to download a few manuals for my 41a's there (once I susbscribed). Very helpful site generally as well - well worth the cost of admission ($25/yr) in my opinion.

The one manual I couldn't get off that site (owners manual) I bought direct from volvo penta - and probably the most useful for me. Has all the 'owner - doable' jobs (according to volvo) well described and illustrated. Things like changing fuel/oil filters, cleaning heat exchangers/oil coolers etc (basic yearly services). Expensive (~$60 Aus if i recall correctly) - but a good and handy reference book.

edit - just noticed you're in Brisbane - I'bve just moved back there last weekend (woody point actully). Yell if you need any help.

I balked at subscribing to Boat Diesel for years before I caved. I had a problem with my Cummins 330 years ago and could not find an answer. Finally subscribed to Boat Diesel and found the answer almost immediately. I always check with Boat Diesel now before calling the $90/hour man.

VOLVO does not support "legacy" engines, that is, engines that are no longer in production. VOLVO has the worst customer service in the industry. Don't get me started on the price of parts (if you can find them)compared to CAT or Cummins...
