why would it take more than a hour to tack the stop ring? seems like a worth while thing to do rather than pay for it down the road when it breaks...

How long it takes also seems to be depending on the version of M90 you have. I wrestled with removing the axle that needs welding for quite some time and gave up. One gear was completely irremovable with my puller (a good one) and the whole shaft jammed to the others when you tried to wiggle it out and stuff. From other people that have done the mod, i heard that it was much more easy to remove. It would have been nice if i could have welded the stop ring but so far so good, no issues whatsoever. If it ever breaks i'll fix it then...

if i come across the starter bracket i'll let you know. You still need the plug to cover the holes of the a/c lines in the firewall plate? Maybe an (euro) version cable operated heating/ventilation unit as well? just thinking out loud.

Plugs, for sure. That'd be excellent. I'd rather not convert to the cable operated unit. I'll make some blanking plates for the evap.

The trick is you need a beefy 2 jaw puller. A 3 jaw doesn't fit in there properly without disassembling a lot of crap.

Sucks about the bracket. I guess it's possible to make one, but what a pita. You'd think there has to be one collecting dust in a warehouse somewhere...

Well hells yeah. Insurance claim on the tarbo got approved by USPS. The check is getting mailed today.
I essentially got the turbo for free.

Yeah I haven't given up on the starter thing yet. I think it needs more prodding from a higher up at volvo.

Woot, new compressor wheel is in. Gotta send it off for a balance and that'll be done.

Look it's me updating about boring ****!
Sent the rotating assembly off for balancing.
Got the ebrake shoes on, well just one side.
The passenger side expander got wedged in between the hub and axle retainer, ripped the end off the cable and mangled the expander. Note to self, don't move car around with no ebrake shoes and the parking brake down.
Drivers side was fine because I had the ebrake up. It's amazing to have a working ebrake again!

After some research, I decided to ditch the boost control solenoid that came with the turbo.
The port needed plugging.
Drilled out the atm vent (#25) and tapped it with a 10-24 tap. Applied green loctite and put in a set screw till it bottomed out.

Top left-atm vent, top right-to wg actuator and center is the reference port.

The big hole will get plugged (when it shows up) with an M22x1.5 oil drain plug using the o-ring that came on the solenoid.
Plug, 2$ at advance auto PN 65223.

Yeah there was that option, but that's about 55$ and the plug makes the reference port to the wg useless.

Rockauto is awesome. 40$ for the 240 Clutch MC on closeout. 35$ for the slave cyl on closeout. All brand new parts, no reman stuff.
