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.

Maybe you drove through some nasty stuff, oily grimey puddle 🤷🏼‍♂️

Maybe.. Perhaps clean and monitor if it comes back. Coming from somewhere up there I think. Weird that it's so liquid despite nothing back there being that thin.

Check that the prop shaft bolts are tight, and snug up the crimp-clamp on the boot. Mine did this last year on the front yoke and the bolts had actually worked themselves a little loose.

I'll start there, not a bad idea. I think I red locktited the fronts not sure about the back. Comes with some on there but probably not enough.

      Our much beloved V70R (~110K miles) overheated on a family trip from Oakland to LA this week.  It now sits at a dealer/service station waiting either for us to pour more money into it than we can afford right now, or for you to come and pick it up.  Asking $1500, OBO.  Then you can either fix the thermostat (and possibly head gasket) yourself, or part it out.
      We are the original owners, with complete service records.  Right before this trip, it had a regular service and new front brakes done (but, ugh, not the thermostat).
      Needs to happen by Weds July 8, in Los Angeles. Paypal, Venmo works.
      (1st side facing pic is from this week, dash board & down facing pic from last year.)

      Hi im new to this forum and this is my first post.
      i have a V70r 1999 
      there seems to be difficult to find a gearbox replacement 1208943. Reason for replacement is the gears are slipping when the atf is hot. I want to rebuild it but instead of taking down the one on the car I’m looking for one used I can rebuild and swap with the one on the car.
      my questions is: can i use other gearboxes F.ex 1208942 from xc70? 
      Does anybody here know What might be wrong with the one i have? No DTCs!
      Does anybody have A 1208943 they might wanna sell? Or maybe 8111193..
      other things I can do except flush as I just did that? 12l jws3309+treatments+leakstop
      where is the Volvo race mechanics ? 😅

      A slightly neglected but making a comeback, 70R that is just itching to find a motivated owner. Nearly every month, we all read, or hear about, another R selling for CRAZY money. This particular R is NOT crazy money. It's reasonable money. $4000.00 and who knows, it may be even cheaper. What I would REALLY be interested in, is a TRADE. STRAIGHT ACROSS. CAR FOR CAR. 
       
      MINE; 2005 VOLVO V70R ONE OF 674
      190,000. Mostly fwy commute miles silver paint with the typical Gobi colored leather. Yes, it would be nice if it were flash green with Atacama but it's not. Clean title, never been involved in any significant accidents. NO panel has been repainted. Has a few of the typical umps and bruises but nothing big. Interior is Gobi leather and is a little tired. CaR starts easily, idles nicely, revs like a pissed off banshee,  has a working 4C system, all three settings, NO CHECK ENGINE LITE, NO codes other than ignition ring and rear wiper motor. 
      Automatic trans with a new, Quality replacement, valve body including all eight shift solenoids. New, not ebay Chinese "reman" solenoids as well as all new proper transmission fluid. I have set adaptation thru VIDA only to find out that the VIN LOCKED TCU is probably "bricked" and needs a XEMODEX replacement.  APPROXIMATELY  $499.95  I just don't want to deal with it as I have other cars and projects in various stages of completion and have no room. 
      If I were to keep it, I would absolutely do an M66 Install as this conversion alone seems to make people go mad and throw huge amounts of cash at owners. 
      If I had the room I'd strip it bare and make it a 6 speed track only car with full cage etc.
      Yours; 95-97 855R  prefer red but any R color would work. Needs to be in reasonably decent condition. NO SALVAGED TITLE. Must run. NO more than 2 years out for tags. I understand how old they are and how crappie the interior plastic is now so I won't freak about a cracked or broken interior. PLEASE,  NO TOTAL POS CARS BUT SOME ISSUES ARE EXPECTED 
      Interested? Let me know what you're thinking and maybe we can make something happen
