Volvo Penta DP-SM Sterndrive. We supply all parts for the DP-SM sterndrive. The service and spares parts list includes sterndrive prop removal tools, anodes, drive and exhaust bellows, hoses, oils, shaft grease and shaft seals. Sterndrives use different types of gear oils, dependant on the sterndrive type. See the individual sterndrive sections or our downloads section for more information.
It is important to use genuine anodes on a Volvo DP-SM Sterndrive. Volvo Penta anodes and made to exact specifications to protect the Sterndrive from corrosion. We have seen evidence of counterfeit anodes and this can lead to a total loss of the Sterndrive from corrosion.

Please contact us if you need a new propeller. DP-SM Sterndrives use I series propellers. If you require technical help with any aspect of your sterndrive or propeller choice, please call us.
Volvo Penta DP-SM Sterndrives should be serviced at the end of every season to ensure the oil is not emulsified, indicating that the shaft seals require changing. Water intake hoses should also be checked for condition. See our downloads section from the left-hand menu to download a list of oils for each Sterndrive type.
Sterndrive universal joint bellow kit for SX, DP-SM, DPS-A and other Sterndrives. This genuine kit includes the jubilee clips. Bellow should be inspected every year and changed every 2-3 years dependant on use.
Sterndrive exhaust bellow kit without exhaust flap for some SX Outdrives. We have seen a very high failure rate on non-genuine aftermarket exhaust bellows for this Outdrive. This can lead to very expensive repairs. Please note, only genuine Volvo Penta parts should be used
