Peacocks Wagon Build

So I'm guessing the threads on coilovers can take a crazy amount of abuse? I've always wondered how that works. It looks like all of the force from any bump you hit is pushing up against the threads.

I want to say it holds on 7 or 8 of the square threads and so it had a large area to put it through, have to figure there isn't any play either so the"shock force" or whatever is minimal since they are attached the whole time.

nice album of progress pictures from all this refresh and upgrade work. Car is still out there as a result of some time crunch but I'll hopefully have a chance to journey back out for it soon. 

 

apart from the cyclinder head we did. 

new: ac compressor, ac accumulator, crank pulley, crank TB pulley because I bought the wrong balancer, oil pump seal and bring, big Volvo deseil oil cooler, water outlet oring, clamps that we're all worm gear are now oteiker, changed over the heat sheilding to a new style p2 one. Angle gear big ring seal, yother rear toe arms, removed old air run from the pcv box and routed directly to the catch can, adjustable timing gear, front engine mount, tie rods, control arms, front wheel bearings. 

Reclocked the front brake lines as well to avoid contact with the wheels. 

extensive!

Getting to the bottom of some oil in the cylinder. Looks pretty much like my catch can setup was a stupid ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD idea and moving it to a good spot with proper suction is finally letting the built up oil through the intake and cylinder 1 and 2. That does seem to have now cleared up. Picked up a very cheap Snap-on scope and got some pictures in there.

Those are the intake side valves

Again no oil hanging from them

Things are looking better and I'll check back in a few more hard sessions of driving to see what's cleared up. 

You can see the think residue oil that was living in the throttle body coupler.

Had a good amount of the DEI reflecta gold left over from the fire wall work. Put it to use on my airbox.

Not the biggest fan of how all the tubes and wires kind of have to criss cross there next to the intake and intake plenum. But maybe that's just reality of it.

Also added a roof rack and some brand new rails I got from ebay. 
Washed and used Wipe New on the rails and rubber trim pieces. Got two full sets from the junkyard just to have the ability to pick through the nicest ones.

When I look at your engine bae I only see a bowl of spaghetti. 

 

JUST joshin’ ya there. Your bay is disgustingly clean, so shut your dang mouth.

Your wagon is looking so good, even if I don’t necessarily know if I like roof rails or not. I really vacillate on that topic. But Jesus man, your car is just so nice. 💗

Someone toucha ma Spagett! That section needs love I'll figure something out with it for sure. Also Griotts best in show spray detail wax whatever. The light blue one 🙂 
I had one on there very briefly years ago. I put one back on because I won that box last year and after the first road trip in the xc70 with it, keeping the tools, oil, other big stuff up there. I found it really nice to not have that jangling etc in the cabin. So it's a sacrifice I can make at this point in time. Really used to laugh at people with the stuff on top of the car but I kind of understand it now. I've got 1.5 sets of full rails still and I'll keep grabbing nice ones as I see them at the junkyard too. With all that I've got two road trips planned in it this summer. One to Deleware for a wedding and another to long beach island. So extra bits and everything would be swell to drag along.

Did move come cables and tubes around, extended where the boost gauge feed is so it sits inline with another vac line. Also tucked the TCV and MAF wiring further under the airbox.

      Here's the story behind my new-to-me 2000 V70 R. Its gonna be a long post, and picture heavy too!
      This thread will serve as a continuation of sorts of my 1999 V70 R build, which can be read here:
       
      The conclusion to that thread will come later this summer, as I will be pulling all the modifications of my 99 R, and transferring them to the 00 R.  Now, onto the details of my new Venetian Red 00 R!
      My friend sent me the for sale ad on Facebook:

      Here's a couple of the photos from the listing:


      After spending a few weeks negotiating with the seller, I bought a one way flight to Denver, packed some tools in my bag (I did, however, forgot to pack underwear ) and went to visit some friends before picking up a car and driving it 1900 miles across the country back to New York!!!
      I landed in Denver Friday evening (May 12) in the early evening.  While there, I got to check out the murals of the Denver Airport, and see all the other bits that are the basis for a long list of conspiracy theories.

      Here's how it sat when I picked it up from the seller at a shopping center a short walk from my friends apartment.

      Shortly after taking delivery of my R, I went on a hike in up Golden with my friends.  The views were stunning to say the least.


      After lots of fun touring around the Denver area on Saturday, I packed my stuff into the car and started driving back to NY on Sunday morning (May 14th) with plans to stop at my friend's place in Cedar Falls, Iowa.  Here are some photos from the drive Sunday.  Nebraska was wide open, flat, and very easy to drive through:


      Drove through miles of turbines in Iowa (despite the picture being of a singular turbine).  There's a Don Quixote joke here somewhere....

      Cruising towards Cedar Falls, Iowa and got to watch the sun set


      Sunday's drive was about 800 miles, which took about 12 hours, and the drive home was off to a great, relatively easy start.
      Here's how my car sat outside my buddy's place in Iowa on Monday morning

      When I left Iowa Monday morning, my destination was headed to Anthony's (@apeacock) house near Buffalo, NY.  Monday held about 850 miles of driving, which was about 13 hours of driving.
      Stopped for gas in PA.  I had a hard time with card reader on the pumps though....

      Made it to Anthony's around 10pm, took him for a quick test drive, and then face-planted into the extremely comfortable bed in his guest room.
      Monday morning before I left his house, Anthony took this photo of our wagons together

      Made good time on my way back to Troy on Tuesday morning - at this point, 300 miles seemed like a short drive to me   I got to enjoy some really nice views in the mountains in western NY:

      Here's how the odometer when I made it home:
       
      The entire trip was 1960 miles, and I managed an average of 26.8 mpg at an average speed of 70 mph.  All of this was calculated from the trip computer. 
      And here's how my two wagons sat when I got the office on Tuesday at noon:

      Earlier tonight I got it registered in NY, so now the build can begin.  Stay tuned, this should be a fun project and I'm very excited to get working on it

      T-5R Wagon (1995), black, automatic transmission, mostly original with a few moderate suspension upgrades. Approximately 175k, with careful and regular service. This was a California car for most of its life, and is (from best estimates) one of fewer than 100 still on the road in the U.S. It comes with: IPD 3" cat-back exhaust; 4 steelies with snow tires mounted; trailer hitch; original parts no longer installed; and your choice of body panels and parts from a 1995 black 850 NA wagon (parts car). I am a motivated seller and will take $3,000, for the next two weeks. Contact me and I'll answer all questions, to the best of my knowledge, and send any additional pictures that you may want. The car can be seen in Delaware, near I-95.

      SO
      Just made an account, hello all
      Tryna do some work on my '98 V70R, the timing belt is from 2006 I think, rear brakes are sitting at 10% (So sayeth the local mechanic).
      Gonna pick up the Power Stop Z23 Performance D/S Rotor and pad kit. Couldn't find any note in the service records of the rear calipers ever being replace, (and the first guy who had this car put nearly 18 grand into it) does it need to be done? 
      Also is this timing belt a problem? From what I've read, if it breaks, its a bad time :(
       
      Thanks all in advance. Pretty green to mechanic-ing
      Oh shitters, I posted it twice. Off to a bad start
