Carl, I give you 2 weekends to pull this off.
Yeah well, I blew my engine up, swapped in another, blew that one up, rebuilt the first one, swapped that in, all in about 2 months.

Here's the 21. Plan to hook up with Harlard in a few weeks.





Do we need a shorter T-belt for .020" off the head?

Nah. Shorter belt isn't needed until ~.060in or more.

You got it. Then he can scare us to death in his bad-ass 242.

I can't figure out how to get a pdf into my Smugmug. But, looking at the Volvo parts catalog, under M47 shifter. There is one (larger) pin under the shifter (PN 1232457-0) and then two (smaller) pins forward that live in a "retaining sleeve" (PN381528-9). Any trick to replacing the smaller pins? That, and the STS bronze stuff / Homer short-stick, should make for a decent shifter?

I think I lucked out. Maybe this unit really does only have 150k miles.

IIRC I used a punch and tapped the old ones out. Even though my M47 has a ton of side to side slop inside I still noticed an improvement in feel with bronze bushings and new pins.

I'm not a fan of short shifters, but whatever floats your boat.

EDIT: Beat me to it. Mine looked waaaaay worse with 300k+

I was thinking of yours. As I recall, the ends of your pins had heavy wear.

The struggle is real. Lol.

Been gathering parts for a while now. Kind of fun to actually go out to the garage and do something.

How's the rod knock?

On long drives, the lumbar on the driver's seat gets uncomfortable. I played with the adjuster, but could not find relief. In my perception, the support pushed into my back too far.

With certainty that I would find a broken adjuster, I peaked under her skirt only to find that everything is fine. Huh. So I dialed it all the way in and reassembled. Maybe I wasn't turning it far enough. Dunno.
