Have purchased a 1982-84 Bayliner with a volvo penta 4 cylinder with no readable numbers it is coupled with a 270 sterndrive. I am hoping some one can help me iddentify the motor type so i can find the approipriate parts. Perhaps a 125A but i don't know how to tell.

There should be a tag on the side of the engine that will tell you what it is.

I have a Volvo Penta 4 cylinder engine. Found the numbers 58563 stamped on the engine block. Can you tell me the year of this engine? Also, need a distributor for this engine. Could you guide me to a site to purchase? Thanks. Bill

Hello I have a volvo penta aq130/270 with serial numbers 48182/79201. I am having a hard time finding out if it a model a b c or d? Thought maybe the aq130 would mean model a since it was the earliest but in research in the last 4 hours proved that the 270 in the id means to be couples with 270 outdrive. Wich is to be coupled to model c???? So back in square 1 wondering a b c or d? Any Help?
