Peacocks Wagon Build

Recommended Posts

Made progress today on replacing the ebrake with stuff from Husseins XCR. Really bummed it took my so long to figure out how to mount the ebrake shoes. Going to make a video of how I did it. Really amazed how easy it is with the proper technique. 

Finally got my Mirzams bored out by the only guy I town who would do the job. Only come to find out they don't fit over at least the rear brakes 
Maybe a small spacer will do the job? Not sure what width requires longer bolts.

Made a VERY unpleasant noise when bolting it up for the test fit. left a little mark on the caliper.

Sorry to hear of the trials with the eBrake.

Try a 5mm spacer, that is thin enough not to mess with the required lug thread depth.

Hardest part was realizing they need to be slipped into place on the assembly versus having the spring pulled over the whole thing. Can't count how long I've spent trying to make it work.

You should be fine with a 5mm spacer! No longer lugs as well, Like H said

Almost last batch of parts arrive today. 

Something seems to be missing from the collar service kit =[

Going to mail it back and get a new set with the additional seal and lubricant.

Took a minute today to install the new detent and the reverse light switch/detent. 

Thought I was having trouble shifting at first and then I switch the cables on the shifter itself. Seems to work great, really slots into each gear and as AndyB5 has said to me it's hard to hit reverse when going to 6th.

Fill the trans from the top detent plug in the gate assy once the trans is installed, axles in. Should be 2 quarts. The side fill plug is not accessible with the trans in the car & the side mount installed, in case we didn't already discuss this...

Never, ever went anywhere near reverse going 5th-6th on hard shifts (that's over 130+) with no rev limit, shifts around 7500 :)

We did not but I always appreciate the advice sir! I was considering making a flip switch on the dash with a sunroof momentary switch hooked up to a 10 second relay that would open up the reverse gate. However once I hooked it all up with the detents in place as shown above, it's WAAAY farther over then I thought. 

Great tip on filling through that detent, would not have thought of that. I was just thinking yesterday how i was going to fill it from that top drain plug. I bought the 4L  Volvo jug as it was $46 only, $10 more then two 1L jugs of the stuff. This should allow for a change out down the line and or any small leaks I don't catch in time. 

Things still to do are count up all the parts one last time and Shave the webbing on the side. 

Question as well: Do I need any seals on the passenger side apart from what comes in the Collar sleeve service kit? They all seem to come with 3 and O-ring, a drive shaft seal and an outer seal for the collar sleeve. 
The Diagram would lead me to think no.

With the engine/trans/subframe out of the car, filling the trans is easy :wink:

New factoid. Both the first and second service kit I got (31256246) Seem to no longer some with the little bottle of lube. The second kit was fully sealed and it would make me think that the kit no longer comes with it. Reflecting further even the diagram above doesn't show the tube near the service kit where as some older ones do.

1161748 I think is the spline lube

Should be just the two seals on the PS - the small one goes inside the diff, the large one goes around the collar, and the o-ring goes in before the collar also. Do the seals before the collar, of course.

The 3rd seal must be the DS axle seal - that's what the 6843481 is for

Such is my luck right now I think I sent that seal back and ordered a new one, but didn't get a refund for it. I have another on the way because I thought I hadn't ordered it yet and the 3481 seal i started with came in the axle kit bag. Time for another call to get that credit back.

      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
