volvo 2030 poly-v belt and pulleys
Hi, I confirm that I am now using the poly-v pulleys off the latest 3 cylinder Volvo on my old MD2030 (crankshaft and water pump). They fit as a straight swap for the old pulleys. The 90 amp Prestolite alternator I bought came with the usual v belt pulley but I changed that for a pulley off a scrap alternator. The original Volvo alternator can also be run with a poly-v pulley too again with a scrap pulley. There is almost no belt wear at all. I can give details of my supplier if you want. I hope this helps, Steve.
MD 2030 pulleys
Thanks so much, great news indeed. Can you confirm the "latest" engine is the D1-30, or if not, which one? Yes please to supplier details.
Poly V pulleys Volvo MD2030
I was told the pulleys came from the very latest Volvo engine, however I recommend you speak to the expert and say to him how happy I have been. His name is Terry and he runs a boatyard in Huntingdon UK tel: +44 1480 453 628.
I apologise for the late reply to this thread. Any more questions, please ask. The correct belt is: Gates 5PK838. Best regards, Steve.
Volvo Penta told me that there were no other pulleys available for my MD22!
