Why don’t you try a starter motor alternator rebuilding company ? I just had a motor rebuilt here on Long Island last week.

To all fellow Amelians

I have a 1988 Mango with a 4-236 Perkins engine with 13000 hours. Engine runs great, no smoke and good oil analysis. Unfortunately the engine starter has failed. I’m in a busy marina in Connecticut and over last 3 months they have found 4 replacement starters but none have worked… either they did not fit, had wrong voltage (my boat is 12 volts) or defective actuator. I am now wondering if I will ever be able to secure new starter and I am now considering a new engine…

I am asking for any advice on what options I have for a new engine… Any opinions would be greatly appreciated..

Matt, You did not give your location, but if in the States ,I just bought a new alternator thru Hardin Marine for my Volvo TMD22a ,as I discovered my old one did not have an isolated ground ,be sure to buy one that is isolated.

Hey Folks,

Looking for some guidance from the group from anyone whom has installed a higher output externally regulated alternator on their Volvo TMD22.  What brand did you choose?  What drove your decision process?  Any service or fitment issues worth mentioning?
