Zincs on a Volvo Penta KAMD44P

Good afternoon - My Californian 39 is sitting in saltwater and I had the hull inspected and zincs changed recently. I don't seem to be able to locate any zincs on the heat exchanger or engines side and am worried I'm missing something. Am I missing changing the heat exchanger zincs or don't they exist? Thanks!

Hi Chris,

I've got TAMD41A's and they have a zonc in the heat exchanger and oil cooler. Looking at a diagram of your heat exchangers I see no zinc. Might want to have a look at the diagrams for the rest of your engine at the site below - the link goes directly to a heat exchanger diagram.

FWIW, there are no internal zincs in my KAD44P (sterndrive model).
