I was saving my pennies to have Swedish Relics rebuild the B20 in my 142, but I can't trust the m47 with the amount of noise it's making. I bought a t5 with Deeworks adapter from a local. Added a Summit short shifter, brass shift cup, and yoshifab clutch. The 240 driveshaft will be adapted to mount to the T5.

The t5 is in the car, but it won't stay in 1st. This is one of the times I'm happy to be paying someone else to work on my car. The trans is coming back out and bronze shift fork bushings are being installed. I did manage to make an adapter to use the Volvo shift knob.

Without it being all put together it looks janky, but I took it for a spin around the block.

This summer marked 17 years of ownership. That means my car has now been with me for more than half my life.

I had a good JY run and grabbed some OEM under hood isolation. It didn't line up with holes in the '83, so it went on this car. I want to try to get it back on the '83 though, since this already has the stick on foam IPD used to sell.

I hit a wall with adding power steering back in. The plan was PS pump on the bottom of a 740 bracket with the alternator on top of it. The pulley doesn't line up though, so I need to get back out there to see what can be done.

What did you get the underhood insulation off of?

The '93 that is at Sherwood. Grabbed the power heated mirrors, power antenna, and a bunch of little clip stuff off the car.

Does the brass shifter bushing add to the NVH much? Does it tighten up some of the slop?

I've never driven a T5 with a stock shifter so I can't say it made any improvement. I know it's a tighter fit than the worn plastic cup, so some slop has to be gone. I wanted to replace any small wear items before it went in, just to save the trouble down the road, so might as well go for the best possible.

A "shift fork bushing" would suggest something internal to the transmission and not a shift linkage related component that might be plastic or rubber, correct? I don't think replacing it would change the feel of anything.

Also, what shop are you having/did you have mess with that?

Frasca referenced the shifter bushings, that's the brass bushing that is plastic from the factory. The fork bushing was three pieces, little rectangles, that I'm still not sure where they go or what they do. Jason in Vancouver took care of the swap for me.

Ah, ok. I missed that picture of the brass bushing above. Is that the bushing that the shifter's ball socket drops into? We still have the plastic one on the General Leif. No complaints.

I look forward to seeing how the finished product drives!

It's out of the garage! PS and Alt are mounted up and running on the driver's side. I had to trim the front lower bushing to get the PS pump to line up right and had to add a thick washer to the adjuster bolt. With new bushings and voltage regulator the Denso is running good again too. IPD front springs are on too, so I need to get it in for an alignment.

Default Blue Volvo!!!

Hey Nice looking 240!!! Im still doing my wagon , but i got the engine running already. I am trying to keep my a/c system, but i have to adapt the compressor form a 850 because i swapped the engine to a supra 7mgte and i already made an adapter plate for it, I gotta change the location of the electric ps pump cause i put it on the side where the battery location is, but I changed the battery to the back and removed the charcoal canister from the original location, cause I am planning to put the ps pump on the battery location, to install the a/c compressor.
Take care and keep up the good work!!!

Just got it back from the tint shop. I paid the premium to get 33% carbon ceramic all the way around. It seems to do a great job at blocking the heat that comes through the glass. I still hope to get heat insulation installed under the headliner to help even more.
