The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    This Volvo Md 7 tranny is the early style input that has 3 ears that engage a rubber biscuit that engages 3 ears on the engine output flange.

    About 2-1 reduction. Easily adapted to any engine.
    Volvo still sells the coupling biscuit.

    Fwd, Neutral, Reverse , cable operated.

    In excellent condition it has been stored for close to 25 years.

    Could be used by a conversion, Kubota, Wisconson , whatever.

    18 Hp Diesel maximum.
    $400. located in SW Florida near Ft Myers.

    From your description it sounds like a set up similar to a flex plate coupling on an automobile. I have a MD7A 2 cyl. Volvo diesel that requires an MS2 transmission. Is there any part number attached to the tranny housing --Tnx. Geo.

    There is no bolted connection as a flex plate would use.

    The output of the engine is a flat plate with 3 "ears , at 120deg spacing.

    The tranny is identical , flat plate with ears also 120deg.

    The coupling between the engine and tranny is a simple disc of thick rubber with 6 slits that accept the vears.

    I will look for a tag , and can send a photo if that would help.

    Here is a link to a similar tranny

    If your drive plate is in good condition it could perhaps be reinsatalled
