    I have a 24' Larson with a Volvo 5.7 GS engine. I suspect that the wrong flywheel was installed on a repair job. I think the next step is to count the number of teeth on the current fly wheel. Can you tell me what the correct count would be? Also, I have heard that this is a GMC Tahoe engine. Can I use this engine flywheel?

    Thanks for any help you may provide.

    Could be wrong flywheel teeth count or wrong starter teeth count or wrong starter. Get a good mechnic to tell you whats now wrong. Do not use the same mechanic again. He does not know what he is doing.

    If it came out of a Tahoe it won't work on a boat. Make sure the electrics and fuel systems are marine so you don't blow yourself up. You can make it safe, but the boat will perform like a pig. Those engines are set for a completely different use.
