They stopped making MD1's in 1970 and started the md1b. degigns and parts on the MD1 stayed the same from 1965-1970

Thanks again for the info , do you know of any where you can get second hand parts for these engines or where they have old boat engine's and stuff ,like a boat jumble or some thing ..

I have a MD1B engine with rack & pinion controls on a 1972 sailboat. I'm trying to find replacement cables. Any suggestions?

Hi Scotty, Have you contacted the Sailboat Manufacturer? The Volvo Penta MD1B Shop Manual doesn't cover any rack and pinion controls. Have you tried an OEM rack and pinion supplier on Google? Mart G. LBI New Jersey
