Peacocks Wagon Build

Nice!

Did you let DO88 know about the shipping damage? They obviously need to revise their packing since this is a recurring  issue

It's tough to tell if it's shipping or fabricating that's doing it. My unit came in the group buy form re-volv last year and the box seemed alright to me. I'll send them a message about it today and see what they say. 
Ended up needing to trim the plastic off the fan shroud by the top venting nipple to have it fit on all the way.

Do88 update, they said it can happen from the fabrication process and is normal. I can also be fixed with a hammer. Though I would be really cautious of doing this but it's something to consider.

m66 question. 
The reverse light for the m66c comes by itself or in a nice little kit. Can any one identify the connector part number or does some one know where one might be found on a p80 Volvo? I have a bag of connectors but can't compare them to the plug on the reverse switch of my m66 as it was crushed and is being replaced.

It's the black part below.

far as I know it's only available with the kit

 

I want to say it's similar to an ABS connector on 850s but I really can't remember

I remember what it looks like on the abs module for my s70 and v70 but this looks differen't. Perhaps the time savings of the kit is worth while.

Not the same as any P80 connector.

I'll see if I can find the PN for you.

 

8690674

Thank you!  

Hopefully making that last parts order tomorrow. 

 

Asking this question too. The collar for the angle gear is the same for both cars but the seals should be those for the s40 to match the m66? So a p1 rebuild kit is the proper way to do it.

I used two butt connectors on the reverse wires... as it is a two post connector.  Crimped the wire side... just pushed the other side one.  Done.

Can't visualize that.  I see it's a plug on the transmission side with two posts, probably similar on the p80.

Early rev switch had cylindrical pole connections (Molex) later ones do not.

31256008 collar

M66 seals are the all same (all FWD = same, all AWD = same), just a question of FWD or AWD versions

9143911 outer seal (around collar)

9143885 inner seal (for DS passing into diff)

6843481 left side seal

Thank you I'll source those today. I also definitely have some spare molex male & female ends that can be used for this purpose.

They won't work if your reverse switch is the one you show above (!) The early version switches have the exposed male molex pins, like P80 washer pumps, level sensors, coolant temp sensor, etc.

I had a big bag of connector pig tails from a parts car but the molex style ones where all like the ones you mentioned. None of them were square like the ones shown. 

Going to order the switch 3072912 & the receptacle 8690674 They total out too $23~ versus the kit which is $42~ I'm sure I can make these work for less then $20 with of parts and time. 

This is whats left of the one that came on the transmission.

Here's the plug on my reverse light switch. Lucas is saying he simply hooked a butt connector to each of those pins. I did that for a little while but didn't like how loose the connectors fit on the pins.

And the matching plug from the S40. The P1 cars use totally different connectors than the P80 cars do.  I forgot to take this from the S40 when I pulled the transmission and had to go back afterwards (when the harness wasn't in the car) to try and find the correct plug. That was tricky...!

I'm glad I ordered the connector then! Didn't go with the wires but i'll source those before we start this thing. Any word on shop availability? 

If the weather would behave I could get stuff done during my down time.

      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
