Peacocks Wagon Build

Yea that should be what's referred to sometimes as the crush collar. The same type of thing exists in the rear diff if you need to change that big seal facing forward.

If he was referring to the crush sleeve, it doesn't need to be replaced as long as you don't crush it more than it already is. Maintaining correct pinion preload is what is important, and you don't need a need crush sleeve to keep the preload within spec.

​I was referring to the collar. We had trouble with re-torquing rear diff pinions (at Volvo) when that wasn't replaced. That was back in the '90's however ;).

Since it''s the exact same part, I personally would change it. If you have had success re-using it & getting the correct preload, then perhaps it's not an issue in the AG application. However it is the same part number (meaning they didn't revise it in any way for the AG application).

minor update, Ohlins for the rear came back. took what 3-4 weeks to get fixed?

I altered them it was on its way as they said they would order in the hose from Sweden  ahead of time. I guess it didn't happen based on the turn around time. However the hose its very fresh and im confident is slightly larger then the one on the other side. 

Next is to get the rear springs working still. No luck on Ohlins springs and I have not yet restored to the 'euro R' springs. Would like the adjustable set from Ben but they are not available yet. 

Other wise the brakes and the updated tune fro Steve have been epic. The car shifts at a little bit higher rpm and just really screams. The occasion where I will actually gun it still takes me a bit by surprise. 

Also still in need of a STC switch so under hard braking the gearbox doesn't kick into neutral.

OK so,

Had the rear seal replaced on the angle gear as well as the fluid changed out. No longer leaks on the hot exhaust making the terrible terrible stench.

Started in on wrapping the exhaust and got a td04 turbo blanket. I still need to finish the bottom portion but it's looking like a winter activity. The cabin is noticeably cooler now and I've hopefully extended the service life of the front shocks and reservoirs.

Rear Kaplhenke (http://www.kaplhenke.com/) springs and perches are in place finally. Needed to get a shop for assistance as I didn't want to removed the lower arm supports on the ground. 

The items themselves are really nice and feel well made.

Many minutes of brake bleeding afterwards (shop exploded the rear Brembo's cross over tube) everything was back together and no longer bottoming out. 

A slightly scary moment was putting the shock on the drivers side back in. The work being done bottomed out the shock so much so it didn't rebound and was 'crushed' to the minimum height, after removing the bottom bolts and pulling it open by hand it seems to be working normally. 

Started off with what I thought was pretty high up, moved from 9 to 12.5 'valleys' on the 325lb springs.

Car handles better then before (as one would hope without the floppy rear end)

I have the Öhlins set to 4 of 8 in the front and back, the corner response and ride quality is excellent. 

Hoping to incorporate the delrin sub frame bushings in the next set of upgrades. 

Mechanic after affirming he bled the brakes properly (the second go around) said it drove really smooth and made no noises which was surprising. Again with a brand new suspension all around I'd hope for as much.

Acquired some Blue Coil 450lb springs thanks to Lookforjoe. 

Following Sam Millers / Ben Kaplans suggestions to just wind up the spring seat worked very well. Replacement only required removal of the rear Porsche calipers. Thankfully these are nice and eash to access 13mm bolts that aren't all frozen up like the oem fronts tend to be.

I will probably pull the passenger side back out when I finally get a moment to replace the e-brake on the wagon. I'm in need of another bump stop as some how the driver side one escaped at some point in the cars life. You can also only get the buffer as a single piece.

Pain in the butt to get the bump stops in and out. Best suggestion in a flat blade in the top to wedge the lip down a bit, exact opposite for the install. 
Camera Shifted after I removed the jack stand but it still shows the set down effectively.

I have new eBrake cables & all shoes, hardware removed from my wagon - if you need to change it all :)

I might take you up on that. I think I cut my dust shields properly based on your previous pictures (though they seem to be gone now and I did it from memory) but i will certainly need new cables for next year. 


Heavier springs have made all the difference and the car now has the correct rake to it.

M66 parts and pieces continue to accumulate. 

Spoke with one heck of a gentlemen and 78 auto down in Alabama today as he had the proper flyweel for me. 

 

Will certainly need a resurface but that's to be expected.

You just need a single mass flywheel, came on every manual 850 produced. You can buy one for less than $50 from most any junkyard...

I thought so as well! But i'm looking to avoid potential mishaps with the altered crank sensor holes. This specific one comes from a 98 s/v70 naturally aspirated car. In babyclaudes thread he shows the difference between the two setups.

This has the all important square notches vs the round holes. 

$75 shipped was a fair offer (figure at least $25 to ship the thing)

Switching the polarity of the crank sensor is just a matter of popping out the pins at the connector and reversing them, but for $75 shipped you got a good deal

      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
