are not comprehensive in any way, since we can not of course foresee everything, because service work is done in highly varying circumstances. For this reason, all we can do is to point out the risks which we believe could occur due to incorrect work in a well-equipped workshop, using work methods and tools tested by


All operations described in the Workshop Manual for which there are Volvo Penta Special Tools available assume that these tools are used when carrying out the repair. Volvo Penta Special Tools have been spe- cifically developed to ensure the most safe and ratio- nal working methods possible. It is therefore the re- sponsibility of anyone using other tools or other work- ing methods than we recommend to determine that there is no risk of personal injury or mechanical dam- age or malfunction as a result.

In some cases special safety precautions and user in- structions may be required in order to use the tools and chemicals mentioned in the Workshop Manual.

These rules must always be observed, so there are no special instructions about this in the workshop manu- al.

By following these basic recommendations and using common sense it is possible to avoid most of the risks involved in the work. A clean work place and a clean engine will eliminate many risks of personal inju- ry and engine malfunction.

Especially when working on the fuel system, engine lubrication system, air intake system, turbocharger unit, bearing seals and seals, it is extremely important to avoid dirt or foreign objects entering the parts or systems, since this can result in reduced service life or malfunctions.

Our common responsibility

Each engine consists of a large number of collaborat- ing systems and components. Any deviation of a component from its technical specification can dra- matically increase the environmental impact of an oth- erwise good engine. For this reason, it is extremely important that specified wear tolerances are main- tained, that systems with adjustment facilities are cor- rectly adjusted and that Volvo Penta Original Spares are used for the engine. The stated service intervals in the Maintenance Schedule must be observed.

Some systems, such as the components in the fuel system, require special expertise and special testing equipment for service and maintenance. Some com- ponents are sealed at the factory, for environmental reasons etc. Under no circumstances attempt to ser- vice or repair a sealed component unless the service technician carrying out the work is authorized to do so.

Remember that most chemical products,

incorrectly used, damage the environment. Volvo Pen- ta recommends the use of bio-degradable degreasing agents for all cleaning of engine components unless otherwise stated in the Workshop Manual. Pay special attention to make sure that oils and washing residue etc are handled correctly for destruction, and do not unintentionally end up in nature.
