Volvo mechanic Melbourne Australia

Hey guys,
I'm looking at a boat with twin TAMD60B's and am wanting to speak to someone around Melbourne, AUS to check on availability of parts etc, before I buy her.

Any advice would be welcomed.

Cheers,
Deano

I donít know about Australia but here getting parts for Volvo can be a long time coming and bring your gold cause the parts arenít cheap. But Australia may be different. Good luck.

Never had a problem with VP parts in New Zealand. 1993 engine. Most prices are reasonable.

That's good to know - at least I can get parts from across the ditch. better that than getting them from the US, etc.
