Oops, I did it again!    Found this the other day and had to go look... Yep! Brought it home!   75 cv-18 with Volvo out drive. Motor has blown frost plugs, but I have a couple spare ones.   Wood is good!!!!  Nice hard floor.  Nice dash only missing the glove box cover. Windshield is the nicest I've seen.  Paint is a realy bad, so that's going to be hardest part.  I'll drop a differant motor in clean it up and who knows.. Maybe have it at the gathering in August.

Yep. That's it,and no I got it for a lot less.      Once I got it out and into the light it looked to good to pass, especially since I have everything I think it needs. The railings are great and the windshield is clear.  The railings on the blue one I have are also great but the shield is cloudy so if anyone needs some railings or parts let me know. I will probably part out the blue one and put the motor I have in this one. The trailer has to go..... it's just to crude for me to use. Should be worth it's weight in scrap. Unless anyone wants it?

I have a manual for the 270 Outdrive...
Got it off the Volvo web site ... Can send you a link.
Not easy to find stuff on the site , but there was stuff for older drives and motors.

The gimbal shaft seems to be stuck in the motor... Merc's I've been able to pry against something and get it put. But the Volvo doesn't seem to have anything to pry on to get it loose-free, any ideas out there??

Could you rig up a slide hammer some how? Maybe with a chain? Get some penetrating oil (ATF/Acetone) on the shaft?

Big tree, long chain, and about 30mph should do it!   Seriously though, no idea, never worked on one of those.  If all the fasteners are out, and it's just the shaft corroded in the coupler, I'd probably use a Porto power, or in it's absence, a couple of small Jack's and a bar to wedge it off.  Fairly sizable drive, prob be hard to motivate it with a slide hammer.

It's not a big tree but it seams to hold it with the come-a-long. Sprayed with p.b. Now I'll see what happens..   I'll try 30 mph next.

Just thinking of another angle, we are all accustomed to the input shaft having splines and providing the slip joint action, but could the type of drive use splines in the outdrive head and the driveshaft actually bolts to the engine?

Anyone know if I can pull the motor from the bell housing without removing the outdrive?

First high of the day!   Went outside today and gave the outdrive a hit with the hammer and out it came! Pb blaster and time.   Pulled it back into the garage and pulled the motor out pulled all the small stuff off the old one.. Pulled the "good motor" I've Been holding onto for the last 4 years, got some of the small stuff off it to get it ready, pulled the old motor mount off and... One of the frost plugs was gone.  And now the low of the day.   Pulled the oil plug and nothing but Water for the first few seconds. Got almost 2 gal of oil filled water out of it. So I'm guessing the "good motor" is also junk.   Anyone want a project??

That would work great if it was a 302 ford, than I would be all over it..  Thanks I'm still looking! Anyone have a spare 302?   I want to use all the rest of the parts off the original motor-Outdrive. And not have to change the boat.

So I see this add on Craig’s list.... that boat looks familiar...  yep.. called the guy, and he was glad to hear from me. Turns out he ran into some bad luck and lost the boat...I’ll just leave it at that.. the boat was his grandfathers that he bought and fixed up and repainted it.. had fun then.. lost it.   Wanted it back and I said no problem, if anyone finds one of my old toys that I want back I would do the same... I told him what I had into so far and would let him have it for that and he was excited... but... hard times means he couldn’t come up with the cash.. I told him I’d keep it for him until he can come up the cash. So how knows maybe in a few weeks the old gal can go back home..
