That's surprising they wouldn't have the part. We have a '96 22 Mariah with a 5.8L Ford block, which they discontinued shortly after and we don't have any trouble getting parts for it. I'm assuming you went to an authorized Volvo Penta dealer?

Try Here. It's Volvo Penta's online store - they even have a section for older engines.

Default engine speed limiter

I just had the SAME thing with my 1988 powerplay 230 conquest. After removing the speed limiter the boat ran great for about 2 days. Now for some reason I'm having trouble with poor top end performance and the engine surges at cruise speed. Has anyone else encountered this issue? The boat idles great and planes well yet, but shortly after bogs down badd.
