Some rod in the motor? I want to put H-beams in but RSI won't respond to my email and I don't want to just order some and have them come in a few months. I also need SS valves and was going to get valve springs and retainers while I was at it. Do you have this stuff in Canada already? Cause I need to buy soon. The shop needs the valves to finish the head.

Oh yeah, reply to my PM! Hah

Hmm, what came in it? Some of the translations are throwing me off haha

Prices seem a lot higher aren't they? MLS HG is like $150 more than here

double edit: they sell just rods, at the same price include VAT. sweet.

I got the sh*tty scantech top and bottem end gasket and seal kit. I would order the Elring top and bottom kit from FCP personally. See if Lars will knock the price down if you don't go for the gasket and seal kit.

The rods came with ARP bolts and it looks like you get crank and intermediate shaft bearings. It did not turn out to be that different price wise once shipped from what I recall. The benefit was the parts were in stock and communication was much easier than other vendors at the time.

Really it comes down to what you want to do. This is just another option available.

Hmm, yeah I've got an order on FCP lined up already(pistons, gaskets and seals, bearings...) and my friend is a preferred 500 customer so hes going to order it for me and get a discount. I only see victor reinz on FCP though. Those were the kits I was going to buy, now that I see you can get the rods individually from the Swedish site Ill probably just get the rods there.

Its probably just that Cometic is a US supplier(I think?) that would make them so expensive there...
It sucks cause I still need an RSI Cam and the Valves from RSI.
We need a Vendor section of this forum.

I buy my Elrings gasket on this site. It's Canadian so no duty and free shipping for orders over $75... I usually get my stuff the next day if ordered before 4 PM...

Check with knox for the valvetrain, he was fast to ship when i ordered mine. Send your email to ben at rsi, he answer fast and i would really suggest putting some rods while you're at it.

Sent knox an email. I do plan on putting rods in, its whether I get them from RSI or not. Ill try to email ben this time instead of just RSI. The ones from sweden look like they would cost pretty much the same amount in the end. But I need a cam from RSI. Damn lack of suppliers! haha I gotta stop stressing myself out, too many classes to worry about this project!

Hmm, well no word yet from anyone! At least FCP has my pistons on the way.

So for my engine harness I decided to do the mil-spec type bayonet connector.
One of these..


Anyone who knows these, knows they are not cheap! So I went to the coolest junk electronics place, and out of a ton of stuff I managed to find one. Just one, and not bayonet but still cool. Got it for 5 bucks! But its not the type with the bolted mount on the one side. So I'm going to machine a mount at my school(getting lots of machine time! -moneys worth)





This is where the mount will attach instead of the wire protector.



I've got so much stuff that I want to make, and my classes are taking up all my machining time. Not to mention other students doing stuff.

So I get call today. Guy from the shop where I got the motor from calls me and says hes dismantling a 94 940 Turbo and wondered if I want the motor, 400k km on it, but running. I obviously say well I just bought one don't really need it, how much? $75 later, I'm driving home with a second 94 motor, not bad for spare parts!

Haha, many available? I do not have a car yet. I would love a 242 that doesn't have too much rust.

I've been looking at some and calling this person and that, but nothing that suits my needs yet. Went to look at a 242 near me but it was too rusty, which sucks cause I don't think there is much anyone can do with it. The owner is actually new on the boards here, but doesn't post much I don't think. As much as I would hate to see a 242 go to a scrapers, it may happen. My welding skill level is not up to the task of the car.

Anyone know if when replacing the 3-4 synchronizer plates in the T5 trans, it becomes really really hard to shift? I don't have the shifter on yet, but I just know moving the synchronizing ring is really hard now.

There was a nice 245 that sold for $550 on CVQ (Club Volvo Quebec) last week. You should check on Kijiji Montreal cause they come around from time to time!

Just picked up a 242, being delivered to my friends house soon hopefully. Terrible day for it, super snowy I thought the tow truck would take forever, but it didn't.

So... You guys can stop de-rating my thread now haha, I have an actual car. Got it today for $200. Going to take a lot of body work learning, but thats exactly what I will be doing on it. I've got the mechanical parts down so now its time to start doing hard part.

Car came from a forum member(just joined, hasn't posted), just getting into volvos, but he just bought a cleaner 1990 to work on.

She doesn't have a name yet.. so Ill have to think of one.











Brown interior I've never seen before.



Her new home for awhile, next to the supra.

Also had an excellent time getting her to that spot by myself! No one is at my friends right now so the driveway hasn't been plowed so there is a good 8" of snow. The tow truck could only get the car to the top of the hill. Brakes don't work at all, engine won't start, battery dead, so I had to pull it with my truck and then push it into place. By myself! Such a great time. Oh well its there!

Hey! I just sent the exact copy of that car to the grave!! Was SO rusty that I got discouraged... The driver's seat was about to fall on the street and the tranny's crossmember was welded to the framerails because there was nothing left to bolt it to!! But I kept the tail lights if you ever need them!
