When it came time to unload the engine from the truck I rented, the shop’s lift couldn’t quite go high enough to allow me to drive the truck out so I had to enlist a couple friends to help :laugh: 

 

I picked one up one time and hoisted it into my wagon with the guy I bought it from .. with our bare hands. . was surprised that was doable but he was pretty confident about it so I went for it.. lol

Eh, I don’t want to put  a 99 hydro lifter head on an 04 (originally solid lifter) engine. If anything, I’d grab a dual VVT head to port and install that when the time came. A friend is doing something similar on his wagon this winter, so I’m curious to see how it all turns out

Supposedly a whiteblock is about 400 lbs, definitely doable for 2 people. But if I can take the easy/lazy way out, I’m gonna :laugh:

accessories and turbo were attached as well ... much easier with a board to slide it up/down on ..  good luck with the swap, I'm sure you'll make short work of it!

Top and bottom end, plus accessory bracket was 322 when I sold my m58 parts wagon for scrap. Maybe too heavy for you central new yorkers I don't know.... That was also what... 2013? Surprised I remember.

Thanks, going to get some parts ordered shortly then start tear down after New Years.

:laugh: if I was a central New Yorker I might take offense to that! 

My wagon is temporarily off the road since Chris @huntec was nice enough to loan me his Civic Si to drive home to my parents for Christmas so we had a red car party at his garage the other night.

Good point.  Can you control the intake VVT on ME7?

I would think the ECU in my car could be upgraded to control dual VVT, given that a different version of ME7 can do so but I don’t know for sure. That’s a question for someone smarter than me :laugh:

the wiring won't be there, would need a different harness or to run new wires from the ecu box probably, no telling what kind of splicing would be involved ...

Yeah I think that is a Steve question

At least you are starting with a MY00 which already has a more powerful EMS than MY99.

Adding some additional wiring doesn’t really concern me, a similar process is required for the ME7 manual swap. I’m assuming the software side is less straightforward.

Agreed on both accounts.  

Last night I got started on readying the replacement engine for installation this weekend. I brought it into the shop, picked  it up off the shipping pallet, got the wiring harness and flex plate removed, then put it on the engine stand.

From there, I removed the injectors, fuel rail, IC pipe, ETM, intake manifold, PCV system, radiator hoses, thermostat and housing, heater core hoses, drained the oil pan/oil cooler and got it ready for the oil pan to come off tonight.

I would pick up a new one piece exhaust manifold gasket and throw it on since you're at this stage.

Sorry I missed it Andy but why are you taking the pan off?

The pan is coming off to replace the o-rings and install the updated pickup tube. I don’t want to deal with that while it’s in the car, much easier to do now. 

I have a new 1 piece gasket, it’ll get installed before the engine goes into the car.

Not sure when they got introduced but here’s a couple pictures of the old metal and new plastic pickup tubes 

45700870565_5ba62e4149_b.jpg

Old tube has a small diameter pickup screen

39650271013_6ae63a70d5_b.jpg

New style pickup tube screen has a much larger surface area. A little bit hard to get a good photo of but it is close to double the area of the old tube 

39650261773_253b18b157_b.jpg

You will need longer bolts to secure the new tube to the block - the points where the bolts pass through is about 1 cm thicker than on the metal pickup.

I cleaned up the oil pan and block mating surfaces, installed new OEM o-rings, rolled out some Volvo anaerobic gasket and installed the oil pan. It’s pretty easy when the engine is upside down!

The B5234T9 that I bought had 127k on it. This means I should expect it has had the timing belt replaced. Closer scrutiny reveals they replaced the water pump too. And they used a non-Aisin pump, which could mean plastic impellers. That’s a problem, so off comes the water pump. To my utter disappointment, whoever replaced it used RTV when installing the new water pump. This not only made it difficult to remove, but very time-consuming to clean the block in preparation for a new pump/gasket.

So that was a ton of time wasted cleaning the old gasket off.  New Aisin pump will go on later today.

      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
