Technical Specification: Four to six-cylinder diesel, from 170 hp to 285 hp. Years of manufacture: 1993 - 2005. All KAD types of diesel are turbocharged and supercharged.
The Volvo Penta KAD range was very popular with many using a DP-E sterndrive.
We can supply all parts for the Volvo Penta KAD range of diesel engines including the range of KAD series spare parts, oil filters and fuel filters, crankcase breathers, drive belts and impellers, genuine KAD series exhaust elbows, oils and grease. We are also the main Volvo Penta dealers for servicing and technical support.
Volvo Penta KAD genuine service parts are made to exacting standards to withstand the harsh saltwater environment in which marine diesel engines operate. If you need help with any technical issue regarding your Volvo Penta KAD, please call us.
The heat exchanger and oil cooler on any KAD should be cleaned and the "O" rings changed, every 5 years to prevent overheating.
Older KAD diesel engines should be using Volvo green coolant. Never attempt to try and change over to Volvo Penta VCS yellow coolant. Mixing yellow and green coolant can cause gelling and blockages within the cooling system.
