2000R Angle gear wont work with M66 unless you can find a passenger axle that has the seal in the correct place. 2000R passenger axle won't fit M66

You know, I forgot about the axle :D - doesn't the '00 XC axle fit though? The R axle has different diff splines, that was the issue you had, correct?

I used a 99 angle gear. I had originally bought cheap axles from IPD, the passenger one they offered at the time had seal locations for either 2000 or 99 angle gears. Both of those axles split boots so I just replaced them with OEM 99R axles that I pulled from my parts car.

The problem I had initially was on the driver side. I had just bought the passenger axle thinking the 2000R driver side would work but it was totally different

Looks good!  

Side note, you could use a '00 AG in a '99, you'd just need the '00 right axle. Doesn't work the other way around (without additional mod), since the DP would be in the way.

I have OEM 99 axles that are in pretty good shape. I’d prefer to find a 99 angle gear so I can continue to use them instead of hunting for an axle to pair with my 00 R angle gear. I’ve had awful luck with aftermarket passenger axles, ran a few different brands with the same results - torn boot or excess play in less than 12 months from installing it. 

So, if anyone has a 99 angle gear they’re looking to sell, let me know!

I do, it's out of the car but still bolted to the engine/trans out in my garage so I'll have to remove to get a good pic of the splines.. was working fine though

Pretty sure I still have a couple. I can check. Do you have the PN/ Casting # off yours for reference? Splines are good on mine.

If you don’t mind getting a couple pictures, that would be great. Thanks!

I’ll send you a text with the part/casting number. Thanks!

Yesterday I did an “autopsy” on the B5234T8 to 1) find the source of the knocking noise, and 2) find what could have caused the noise to occur.  This was really fun and quite satisfying in the end.

I didn’t take any pictures of the first couple steps but I stripped the remaining ancillary bits off, pulled the cylinder head, and removed the oil pan. 

40305304003_23f99d5cbe_b.jpg

After removing the oil pan, I found a failed o-ring at the connection between the oil pan and the crankcase. With close to 240,000 miles on the engine, I have no record of these o-rings being replaced. At this point I suspect the o-ring failure led to reduced oil pressure throughout the engine and insufficient lubrication to the bearings. Note that at no point prior to this engine being removed did the stock “oil pressure warning” instrument cluster light come on to alert me of a problem. 

46355354445_42de08d265_b.jpg

Next, I started to remove the rods and pistons to examine the bearings and see what stories they had to share. As it turns out, they had quite a tale to tell! 

 

I’m about halfway through the process and remove the cap from rod #3 to find the bearing is spun 90 degrees around. That’s a sure sign that things have gone catastrophically wrong! This confirms my suspicions that it was rod-knock that I had been hearing a not an issue with the top end/valve train. 

47217829212_b20ffcea0f_b.jpg

I go to remove each half of the bearing and in doing so, I find an even more dramatic failure. One side of the bearing had fractured into 2 separate pieces! 

47217844482_87cfb268d0_b.jpg

Now, I’m not a professional mechanic, but I can assume that’ll cause a few problems :laugh:

The crank journal on cyl 3 was gouged pretty deeply

47217829632_07e3795c13_b.jpg

The intact half of the #3 rod bearing was worn down pretty dramatically - that surface should be silver, not copper. At least 1 full layer of metal had worn away from the bearing surface! This wear is caused by lack of oil supply and is how the big end of the rod has enough space to “knock” as it rotates around the crank. 

40305302913_8d8c90ea9e_b.jpg

Cylinders 2 and 4 were showing signs of damage to the bearings as well. I suspect the both cylinders experienced low oil pressure, but not as low as cylinder 3 so they did not fail outright, but would have been an issue had this engine continued to be run/driven. 

46355354425_f7ae6db7e4_b.jpg

 

46355353565_2a6ed1fbd7_b.jpg

Here’s a shot of my “coroner’s table” while I was working 

47217843112_4d62472705_b.jpg

While I’m not happy that engine needed to be replaced, I am happy that I was proven correct in my initial diagnosis and it was fun to be able to take the time and really understand both how and why this engine failed so I can learn from this experience!

Dude - yeah although shitty, pretty satisfying work when it all makes sense and you piece it all together yourself!

Exactly! Plus, now I can say I’ve killed an engine, that makes me cool right?

I guess nothing from that engine will be used ever again. 

Nope, it’ll get turned into a table. The head would probably be okay to reuse, I rebuilt it a few years ago but it’s a single VVT, hydro lifter RN head so it’s not really anything special or valuable.

Will be interested in a overall rebuild cost if you get one.  Good luck with the rebuild.  🙂

Yeah, I know that sound.  Sounds like a rock in the valve train; worse as you rev it and quiet as it comes back down to idle.

Salvage what you can for the next build!

I had a thread somewhere here on vs on my donor engine disassembly where conrod bearing was friction welded to the crank, I guess your engine would experience same after some time. The engine was extremely dirty, so I thought clogged crank oil passages caused oil starvation, but wooden oil pan o rings could be responsible as well

      Day 01:
      Car came with its drive shaft pre-removed but included. 12 total wheels and tires, a brand new set of R mats in the volvo box, and a stack of service receipts totaling 26,000 CAD.

      Purchased at 121,000 miles currently 152k on everything.




      March 2014 - Acquired many nice parts through the winter. Met Bmac and got everything installed and then had Steve tune it the same evening. Long day but everything has held together like new since then.
       
      Snabb kit was a oh yeah! to install, lower pipe need to sit just right to make it all work.

       
       
      18" of space was nice but we almost needed more.

      Clamshell was not surprisingly rusted closed.

      ugly ugly welds but it went in perfectly. Did require cutting the old downpipe to clear the angle gear.



      Bens BIG turbo


      Manifold and turbo and exhaust removed.


      Nice new nuts and reused the washers.


      Huge difference in design.


      Sway bars are such a nice improvement on this car
      Reused a front bar from VS, rear can be had new without buying the set (just ask)


      Practice Safe Turboing



      May '14

      Tint and Clear Bra - No surprise it doesn't show up in pictures. The Tint Shop of Rochester NY did a great job. Happy to protect the newly painted front end. (barely visible below)

      'Winning' Only two volvos that weekend so I can't be too happy.




      Summer 2014

      Rear set still brand new in box. Really excited to get this all in and be on the road

       
       
      Not sure if VS works this way but Saving this space for suspension and brakes when they go on.

      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
