  1. How Your Car Sits

    I'll compromise and include my old car for Volvo content.
  2. Camshaft removal - size of bolts?

    The 40 10mm bolts that hold the cam cover down are all that hold the cams in place.  There's also 3 tight-fitting dowels between the head and cam cover, so bring something you can pry with.  Screwdriver to get the distributor cap off.  Can't remember what size the cam sensor screws are, but I think that needs to come off as well. What else am I forgetting?

    I wish!  From what I understand, the only W202 chassis to get a manual (Diesel) only got a 4-spd.  Sloppy box is fine, I guess.

    Some of the voices put an idea in my head, so I tried something different.  AMG C36.      
  5. Andy's 1999 V70 R

    Having recently completed a rack replacement on my VR, I'll go ahead and comment it's a pain in the ass.  Not a whole lot of room with the bevel gear and sway bar in the way. If I EVER have the need to do it again with an AWD, I'll drop the whole subframe and not just the rear.

    Tires are junk.  Both rear tires have cracks on the sidewall and don't really hold air.  Front are so-so and hold air, but also show cracks.

      Laugh now, I'll have some bigger tires on it tomorrow.  No monster truck, but this stuff looks terrible!  Even my son is hiding his face!
  9. What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

    Time to swap wheels around again. The 205/45 on the Neptunes are too skinny, going with 225/45 tomorrow, same size as the Saab wheels on the VR.

    Hanging out with friends, deciding what to fix first on the 855R.  
  11. What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

    Started acquiring parts for my V70R's well-needed transformation.  Starting with this M66.

    She's a real beaut, Clark.

    Lame pic that doesn't really show MY car, but I don't post many pics of my wife's R so I guess it counts.  Had a great time, even with the rain today.
  14. What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

    Replaced both hubs, both cv shafts, and that sumbitch leaking steering rack.  I sure wish I'd gotten to it sooner, there's such a mess of p/s fluid streaking towards the back of the car.
  15. How To: Bypass Rear Bulb warning for LED tailights

    Ooh, interesting! Curious to see how this goes.  Good work, Paul!
