Magnesium Kit
Magnesium Kit
Part Number: VP876137

Volvo Penta 876137 Magnesium Anode Ring Kit fits lower gear unit.

Anodes are to be sacrificed in order to protect the drive unit and propeller against galvanic corrosion. Volvo Penta anodes are tested and specially produced for Volvo Penta drives and propellers.

The specifications are, in certain cases, more stringent than any other marine materials standards in the world. If 50% or more of the anode has been eaten away by corrosion it must be replaced in order to, once more, fulfil its vital function.

Never Jeopardize safty and performance by fitting a non-genuine anode. Remember to never paint over the anodes.

Type of Water

Saltwater - Zinc

Brackish - Aluminium

Freshwater - Magnesium

Zinc and aluminum anodes will if left in freshwater become covered with white oxide which effectively passivate the anode, zinc anodes suffer a similar problem even in brackish water.

If the anode becomes passive, the drive will start to sacrifice itself, this will cause serious damage. Magnesium anodes will wear off much to fast in saltwater.
