The heat exchanger on any MD2040 fresh water-cooled variant should be cleaned and all the "O" rings changed, every 5 years to prevent overheating. The MD2040 should run on Volvo green coolant. Mixing VCS yellow and green coolant can cause gelling and blockages within the cooling system.
The other part to check is the exhaust elbow. As a guide, the exhaust elbow, 861906 should be removed every few years and checked for blockages, and replaced every 8 to 10 years, as the outer water jacket of the exhaust can build-up with rust and corrosion.
Contains the oil filter and fuel filter, as well as the impeller and all necessary gaskets
