Re: Anodes for Volga

Hi, Wow! I could not imagine, that this site is being kept since such a while, with all kind of Volga owners and there is so little info available regarding good sources for spares supply. Most probably due to the fact, that the site is rather secured against spammers and advertisers. It seems that ...

Spares for GAZ 53 L, V8, 4,3 litre

Dear Friends, We have checked our engine by opening it. The result was unpleasant. Pistons, liners, pumps, bearings, etc ... all need to be replaced. Does anybody have an address for a reliable source for GAZ spares? I have seen some pistons for 60 rubles, this should be only 2 dollars! Anybody to c...

Re: I can't belive I found this site

Dear Bobby, We all go thru the same story! We find a boat, we think it is crazy we buy it and then we find out it is not the boat, but ... our wifes when they see it! Then they don't understand why you buy a boat that has no toilet(?)! Take it easy! What they don't know is, that you have stumbled by...

Anodes for Volga

Hi everyone!

I would like to buy from somewhere the anodes for my Volga. Can anybody give me an idea from where to buy?
What is the material of them? Magnesium-Alloy? Aluminium only? What, who, where is a reliable source for these
spares?

Thanks in advance for answering....

best regards,

Re: propeller and gearbox

Dear Dinko, My engine is in not good condition and I think of changing it together with the gearbox and replace it with a new diesel and a ZF 63 IV gearbox + cardan. If this is the case my gearbox will be available + the direction changing gearbox. Are you bulgarian? I lived 3 years in Varna. There ...

Re: Paint on the hull of Volga 70

Hi Klas, Thanks for your reply. What would be interesting me the most is actually the priming paints that are used, because they are the heart of the issue. The original Batumi boat had 3 different layers for the hull, before it was painted I guess with two layers of paint and antifouling. 1.) White...

Paint on the hull of Volga 70

Dear Friends, I am going now into the second weekof paint removing and found out, that there is a big difference between certain sections of the hull. (My boat was built in Batumi, Georgia and I do not know, how much this reflects on other boats built somewhere else. ) Beneath the water line, the hu...

Re: Restauration of 6 Volga 70

Hi, I am the new member in the group and own a Volga 70 from 1986 with a V-8 Gaz 53L providing 90 HP. I allways prefer something I buy to be original, however as you all may know, not everything on our volgas is made of gold and so I believe the engine is neither. What experiences are there with V8 ...
