Recently purchased first boat - '75 Bayliner 2550 Saratoga Hardtop with AQ200B engine package which is 350 Chevy/280 Volvo. Last owner froze/cracked block. He replaced it with short block but, forgot to save engine ID tag off front of block. I contacted Volvo and they told me my engine package was in boats like mine from '74 thru '76 but, they could not help me with an ID. The ID tag is on the outdrive but, they said they could not use it to reference engine ID. The problem I've encountered is buying engine parts. Volvo gave me parts outlets to try and I contacted all of them. Without exception they all require the engine ID to sell me parts. Would it be reasonable to ask any owners of same engine package and vintage to share their engine ID number with me so I can buy parts? Any other ideas on how I can reference parts would be appreciated.

Rick (2850 bounty) over at the forum is a Volvo expert. You might ask him.
