    Default whittier diesel mechanic

    My Volvo Penta D-4 chewed up the belt to the supercharger compressor(I think that`s what it is). Does Whittier have any services to address this type of issue?

    Dave @ Heavy Weather boats goes over to Whittier almost every week. I don't know if he can help you. Also there is a boat repair shop in Whittier.

    Not to sound like a wise arse but you can't change a belt yourself ?? What would you do if it happened out in the sound ?? I'm 99% sure you can run those volvo's without that belt and not hurt anything.

    It happened at the south end of Culross Pass and I did motor in at slow speed. I am just not sure why this would happen with less than 30 hrs on this engine.

    With 30hours i'd think its still under warranty so get the dealer that sold you the boat/motor to come and fix it. I'm thinking misaligned pulleys or maybe just a junk belt from the factory.

    I highly recommend Matt at Sewary Heavy. I always trailer to him if it is something I can't handle
