I got a friend that has a 2003 Glastron. With a I/O. Current gas a Volvo penta sx-m1 and it's junk.  He is asking me if he can use a Volvo penta sxm to swap it out. He found the sxm somewhere online to buy but not sure if he can just swap it out.  Thanks

Send Glenn (GT jets) a message.  He'll be you're best bet for getting an educated response.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

As long as the gear ratios are the same,  they will interchange. You have to use the same ratio. It is based on hp.
