Hello, I'm Tan. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and will reply momentarily.

Expert:  Tan replied 8 months ago.

The easiest way to find model year is by the HIN# ***** the transom of the boat. Stbd side just below the rub rail.

Post that number and I can tell you the year.

I have the Volvo Penta number,(###) ###-#### I know the boat is 1990 but believe it was repowered, trying to figure the engine and drive
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Also another number on the plate is 868265
Expert:  Tan replied 8 months ago.

Even it it has been repowered it will be the same model year unless they doid a complete repower of the complete drive and engine. Volvo doesn't categorize their engines by model year they only go by engine model.

If you go to a Volvo dealer for parts this is what they use to get parts model year will not help at all.

What is it you need?

Ok well I'm not getting a answer to my question, those numbers should give the engine and drive, I can't convert them, those are the only numbers I have
Expert:  Tan replied 8 months ago.

Go to a dealer with those numbers and see what they tell you. I told you what you need to give me but you just can't seem to understand that. Good luck. BY

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I told you those are the only numbers I have found
Expert:  Tan replied 8 months ago.

Thoise numbers don't tell us anything and you can't seem to get that you need the engine model number. The engine model number won't tell you the year of the engine anyway. So it still won't answer your question.

Did you look on the engine for the number from the link I posted?

Expert:  Tan replied 8 months ago.

This number is ***** transom shield. (###) ###-#### http://www.volvopenta.com/volvopenta/global/en-gb/marine_leisure_engines/out_of_production_engines/Pages/out_of_production_engines.aspx

Still doesn't tell you anything about the engine.
