B21, B23,B230 block drain petcock's OEM Volvo adapter bushing is: 3/8-18 NPT. So if wanting to use another adapter for a Aftermarket 52mm WT gauge, you can mount the sender in the block drain location.
I have done this trick 3 times, but was never absolutely sure that the hole in the block was for a NPT bushing. Now I know it is a NPT, 3/8 -18 OEM adapter bushing and you do too.. Finally.

The OEM Volvo adapter bushing for the Block drain petcock (and with the hex provision for a wrench), is a 3/8-18 NPT fitting/bushing. YUP!

If you're talking about an LH2.4 engine (1990+?), you need the blank to be in the starter hole with number one piston at TDC.

cheers

Hello
The volvo diesel rubber engine mounts are: 1229805 & 1272346
Here in Norway they are rather expensive, about $100 each. You'll probably find them cheaper in the states.

True , Also, just so happens that a standard 1 1/16 deep socket will also fit steering wheel nut, in case metric socket is unavailable

Just thought id throw this out there. I need to know the thread size on the one coolant pipe plug that comes on the 16v head by the temp sensors. Id like to assume it's 1/4" npt but I could be wrong, just need to be sure

Get a guage like this: http://www.amazon.com/Rockler-Bolt-S...e_hi_ai_ps_t_1, but there are some that have both and thread sizes, which are more useful.

Found this kit for adapting NPT sensors to the metric fittings on the heads and/or block. No more custom drilling/tapping if you choose to go this route...

Question Starter bolts

Didn't see the starter bolts in this FAQ. I had to cut off the heads and then lost the rest during my slow rebuild job on a 1990 240DL.

What's the thread size for an EGR thermostat valve in redblocks. It's the one below intake manifold and has two vacuum ports. It goes in to the head next to the temp sensors.

Thread is tapered so I would suspect NPT but if someone knows for sure..
