I pulled out the AC unit this morning. I had to bend couple things to get the condenser out of the way. I’m pretty sure the dealership when they reinstalled the plate above it spot welded it on after a minor accident where my buddy back into my grill when we were in high school and bent it. I couldn’t pry the thing off without breaking random spot welds. Not sure why because photos I’ve seen on other Volvo’s it unbolts. Can you guys confirm that?

Checked the transmission clearance tonight. I have an idea now where to make more clearance.

I had to get tighter fitting 90 degree fittings. Still not able to get the 4L80E mounted. I’ll try hammering little more.

I pulled the motor and dropped the transmission. Air hammered for couple hours. I hope that I have clearance this time. Wish I used an air hammer in the first place.

Default spot welds.

Hey , nice build. When I was doing my supra 6 cyl swap,I decided to drill trough the spot welds and put nuts and bolts in it. It was so much easier to slide the engine / trans combo in one shot, cause i was doing it Han Solo. Must of the ones I've seen are welded. I could be mistaken, but it worked out for me that way. See ya!!! DZ

Thanks! Looks like you have V8 swap yourself. Maybe once I get this together we could meet up.
