I’m looking for issues with Volvo TMAD 73 series,480hp. Having pre-purchase survey soon. 36ft DE cruiser. (2001). I’d like to know what should have been performed maintenance wise and what I should be expecting to do and any known glaring issues.

One thing to check is the ring on the inside of turbo air inlet.I have seen A few that have come loose in the 74 series but worth the check other than that, aftercooler service. Good luck

I would get a hold of Brian McDonnell (VOLVO GURU of the Northeast) and talk to him or have him survey your engine.

I reached out to him Saturday and waiting to hear back. For everyone that responds here I’d like to thank you in advance. New to DE and coming out of a bigger SF. I have talked to many DE builders outside of this forum and the open sharing of time and knowledge has been unparalleled. Hope to garner and share my knowledge at some point.

Is this the EVC control system or a pure mechanical engine?

I think EDC & EVC are two different systems. EDC is the early control system I had on my KAD44.
