Once you get it all sorted out I think you'll really like it for a DD. I noticed the distributor. My buddy's '99 is DIS. Like a weirdo, I checked Rockauto to see if yours was the last year and apparently they could have had either in both years. Odd.

Nice.. ! I hope so thanks DRIVEN ! The DIS for 98' is something I wouldn't have guessed at all ( I just cavemanishly assumed 99'+ was when they did that system ). I guess just like mechanical and hydraulic t-belt tensioner option for the year ? go figure. Weirdo's get things done.

Timing kit came today

As did the water pump. Funny thing is directly after I ordered this on Amazon it was $48.00 something , and I paid like $29.00 something cents. :P lol

Amazon saw you buy it. The demand goes up, they don't have many left. Price goes up. No one buys for a bit, price goes down. I have bought a fair share of things where the price went up after I paid. Like my tie rod ends for 7, after they went up to 17...

Yup ! I like to put about 20-30 things in the shopping cart just to watch the price changes take effect every-time I log in or stroll around. The one sale for my water pump switch from sold by Amazon (lower price) w/prime shipping to Car Parts Kings (higher price) w/free shipping no prime available. I'm just glad I didn't order a plastic impeller water pump... lolz. (about had a fret when a picture of a plastic impeller was on the outside of the box before opening even though I knew it wasn't a picture of the actual pump inside :| lol ).

No... I failed :( ... lol
I did test drive a 5spd 98' V70 with 342,000 on the body/5spd.
It drove like a dream.... like the chassis/trans had 100,000-130,000 miles on it !
(was suppose to have an engine with 120,000 miles in it.... that's the magic number for all claimed replacement engines round these parts... :| lol)
The engine did run good in it no doubt.

I slightly thought about harvesting an S70 5spd for this since I really REALLY like the 5spds they offer.
Will just drive it likely though , and talk talk talk ... lol (I'm really not sure what is what at this point though lol)
Blah blah blah ... volvo .. wait ... :ugeek: ... wat :|

Converting an automatic to manual would probably likely involve replacing the entire dash/engine harness in the car. To me, not worth it unless the auto tranny died.

Very, very costly.


I tried explaining this theory to a detailer at my work about his automatic Acura RSX. He doubted me.
After research-he just bought a manual RSX after selling his auto; and me lunch for saving him tons of money and headache.

Popped off riming belt components.
Damned cam gear moved just a touch that's what I get for not using a lock-out holder tool.

Water pump off.

Will have to clean that out a bit before slapping on the flame-trap box.

New water pump going in.
Image034 by 71240z, on Flickr

New Timing components , and belt on. Pull the pin later. Yes that's RTV I suck lol. I did however use Teflon sealer on the water pump bolts though. The old hydraulic tensioner looked to have barely ever so slightly started to leak. Wasn't bad yet , and was the "aisin" volvo OE equipment. Cool cool.
