Peacocks Wagon Build

Recommended Posts

So today became shave day. 

I may have gotten carried away with the lower fins and in the end smoothed it out a bit. That lower fin was 90* at one point (oopsie!)

"smooth" I promise I read through stuff and looked at picture before I started but it is was it is.

Easter Sunday Update,

Recieved the coupler from Amazon, It looks exactly like every other one out there and is probably made just as bad as the ones that cost $34-$59. $59 for this!!! Mine was 9.99

The only place I could find a plug was at Lowes, it is a 3/8-24 x 1/2 Socket head set screw. It threads about half way in and then stops. I wound it back out, then in and then out and got it tightly locked in there. The threads are cut really poorly. I also took a round file to the inside to knock down some left over metal from the threading process.

Is that for the rad hose mod required when using the P1 version M66 in a P80? I don't know the details on that...

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.

Did you transfer the firewall grommet from the old cables? I couldn't get the C30 grommet to line up no way no how. Slit the sheath on one side & then siliconed the slot after proper cable alignment

 

WTF IS GOING ON ON THIS poking SITE. IMG TAGS DON"T WORK NOW?????

H try imgur.com you can sign up with a gmail account and have control over the images in a similar way to photobucket. 

No plans for the grommet yet. still has the s40 on there. I'll have to tape over it or something crappy for now and wait until there is a manual p80 at the yard and take the boot. Good suggestion though. The grommet isn't available as a separate piece so time to play the waiting game a bit. 


Really hoping the helper spring comes to tasca in time and I get it here by Wednesday. Ordered it on 3/4, they messed something up and had to re order it again.

Most time consuming single part was the AC compressor line and that's because we refused to take the fan out for 45minutes

Yup, our garage on RPI's campus. 

We had a 426 wagon party earlier:

      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

      Hello, 
      first time posting here not sure what to expect. So I have an 07 xc70 I recently purchased and have a few questions about some performance mods I would like to do. So this car has about 175k miles and I want to boost my horse power up to the high 200’s if not low 300’s it’s my daily and I want a bit more juice for fun but I don’t want to destroy it too bad I love the i5 sound and the entire car in general. What are some things I can do to increase the horsepower but keep it from killing itself. Also what are some good exhaust mufflers or kits I can buy that increase the sound at higher rpms but not as much at low rpms it just sounds so amazing at high revs and I want to emphasize that as I’m driving. Any feedback or suggestions would be great. Thanks!
