Default Bravo trim pump vs Volvo (SX) trim pump

Bravo trim pumps seem to always leak (and leak down) . The Volvos
are faster and seem to hold pressure better. Has any one ever swapped a Bravo Trim pump for a Volvo SX pump? Are the
pressures similar?

It should work fine the problem is finding fittings, I believe Merc still uses SAE not metric.

Ditto.. Although the later model ones may be interchangeable & work on the merc lines.. The other thig you will need to do if you swap them is mod your merc wire harness to work with the volvo pump. I believe those connectors are different. volvo is usually flat & merc is usually round.. Jamie / Lakeside
