Yes.. someone used Permatex aviation sealer on the thermostat housing. Pretty much all of it is gone not worried it'll seal right up.

Also used Liquid teflon sealer on the water neck torx bolts cuz I can.

Hmm..

I bet if you went over and saw matt the cnc master.. he could make one real quick, probably more trouble than its worth if you only use it once lol..

I would think something with grooves like you have now, that just locked pushing outwards to keep the cams lined would work fine.

He'd make a dope unit yo !!
lol... I'm hoping to use the cam-lockout tool two moar times (70,000 intervals) if I buy or make one ... longer shot though... lolol.
IPD has one for $30 that's aluminum with stainless pins ? sticking through it appears to be my good sir.

I'll probably get motivated , and make a backwoods unit... toothpicks ... popsicle sticks ... legos .... gum .... and rubber-bands yo !!!
By motivated I mean I'm full of shit lolol.
If only I can work on this damned swap moar faster lol.

I made one for the last S40 I needed to replace cam seals on. It had a floating cam phazer to contend with though. Can't find it now but it was super simple to make. Those cams should be slotted at the rear, right?

Nice !! I won't pretend to know what to do with a floating cam phazer or vvt stuff in general lol.
Yeah I imagine pretty straight forward to make for sure :) (or at least my model they are lol).
I do believe the bolt holes are indeed slutted.. thank you for the tip DRIVEN ! I would be lost without these little tips or understandings here or there :thumbs:
(found that out towards the end of my 1st Volvo 850/early 70-series timing belt package re-installation while dinking with the belt.. doh ! ..lol).

This is why I can have nice things !

Popped it off. (after having a guy waste a good day of mine)

Short bolts = sides
Medium bolts = front
Long bolts = rear (require teflon sealer it looks to be)

Not bad considering the sludge/buildup ... and the fact that someone kinked the oil dipstick tube before pressure washing the engine thus into the oil pan
:fry: (ironically not me)
Image011 by 71240z, on Flickr

Pan to block o-rings = good
Image015 by 71240z, on Flickr

Forgot to take a picture of the pickup tube o-ring , but it was in good shape.

At any rate new original Volvo o-rings for all.

Gas soak + parts brush + pressure washer

It "seems like" there all kinds of vertical and the horizontal baffles.

Cleaned the pickup tube with gas/brake cleaner/carb dip/whatever seemed right lol , but here's a before pic.

I heard a good way to clean out the engine is dump a bottle of brake cleaner in with the oil on first run :troll:

Thanks for the help guys !

Spare alternator.
Popped off regulator/brush assembly (keeping old one).
Image028 by 71240z, on Flickr

Image021 by 71240z, on Flickr

Done. I'll keep my old module it's likely better quality just trying to minimize a few things along the way (like avoiding getting my ham hands down there 2-3x over). The slip ring on the bottom (closest to the pulley) could be better , and might have lasted longer with the weaker springs of the old regulator , but meh.
Image029 by 71240z, on Flickr

Bearings were quiet/smooth. Just wanted to replace brushes , but came as a unit .. so be it.

Don't like using this type , but it's what the stores had in stock.

Some of the "Volvo OE stuff" is made is Poland and the rest in Sweden. Huh.

didn't want these falling , so through some sealer up there (wiped out excess just before install).
Image042 by 71240z, on Flickr

Pickup tube o-ring. Hard to believe I only very BARELY at the end touched the surface with a razor blade to make sure. I couldn't get that last bit off the surface for whatever reason ? (amateur likely lol).
Image043 by 71240z, on Flickr

Permatex "Anerobic Hi-Temp Flange Sealant " and reflon sealer (rear oil pan bolts and decided to use some on the front ones for some reason).
Note the pink color. Just like the Volvo stuff.
Image047 by 71240z, on Flickr

Don't think I used enough sealer.. lol. Leveled it down and took off some excess (carefully with gloves and a wee roller) before install.

Oil pickup is clean and happy.
Image038 by 71240z, on Flickr

Random pic.
Image004 by 71240z, on Flickr

Thought I took pics of the oil pan being on ?
Well it's on and sealed for more than the 24-hour total cure time (if I remember correctly on the instructions or something... brain is tired).
Hoping to have the engine out tomorrow as it's all nearly off except the mounts , a cv-joint bracket and bell-housing bolts.
I did find a few deteriorated hose elbows (the 45 and 60-degree ones ?) off the white hose , and one coming off the emissions equipment solenoid of somekind.
Will have to look that up.
One of the PCV hose elbows slipped off at some point as well , so there's that as well.
The front passengers output shaft (CV-Joint seal in the trans) is starting to leak or had started to leak.
A snails pace , but she's getting done.

Been UN-famaliar with working the system , so it's been pleasurable learning things first hand here or there where I can.

FWIW, my buddy's '99 V70 lost the head gasket last week. Since he's a sales rep and spends most of his day behind the wheel, he decided to replace it with a new Venza rather than repair it. I don't think any real damage has been done but it really didn't make sense for him to pay to fix it (he's got little mechanical ability) but a guy like you or me could have it back on the road for a couple hundred bucks and a weekend of work. If you're looking for a project/parts car it could probably be bought for about $800. PM me if you have any interest.

Motor mount rubber donut up top was iffy anyways ... meh.
