While looking at my "benchseat 18's" old Volvo~Penta outdrive which is in very sad shape, and completely internally frozen, I decided to look-up some used Volvo 270/280 drive parts prices online.

Doing a Google search the first listing that came-up was

www.sterndrive.com (http://www.sterndrive.com)

Check-out their website~
I know nothing at all about these folks~~~

They seem to have an entire warehouse & "Boneyard" full of old scrapped & NOS sterndrive parts.

Here is what I found~~~

VOLVO 280~~~
Upper Gearcase (Complete) $6435.55

Lower Gearcase V8 (Complete) $ 4432.17

Lower Gearcase Bare Housing Only $ 1921.00

Are they Kidding ?
I cannot believe these high prices~~~for OLD USED Gearcases !

Are these just common used Volvo 270/280 parts prices ?
Do they re-build these gearcases at these prices ?

They also will "re-build YOUR complete old Volvo outdrive~~~
I can only guess what they charge for this "rebuilding service" & shipping ?

At these fantastic prices I might be better-off, & ahead of the game, with a complete NEW outdrive system !

What do the various complete NEW Mercruiser or Volvo V8 ratio outdrives cost today ?

Are these old Volvo parts that hard to find; and that darn valuable ?

If one is to believe their prices these old parts gearcase units are made from Unobtainium !

Bayliners, & Rinkers make great donor boats for Volvo drives. I have bought nice clean compleat V8 drives on craigslist for 3 to 5 hundred dollars.:rolleyes:

I paid $750 for a complete 280T with power steering. It needed paint, but it runs great.
