    Mercruiser uses Cummins engines so it should be a straight hookup. With Volvo you will have to make adaptors. Diesel outdrives have an epoxy coating in the exhaust because of the more corrosive fumes.

    Go with the Merc unit. They are inexpensive, reasonably reliable, not a lot toys & whistles and your grandmother knows how to work on them.
