Got it to work!!! Woot woot. It appears Imgur doesn't play well on my Linux computer, but it works great on Windows 10 (could also be my web browser). Going to start fixing pictures today.

Thanks,

Default B230FT Valve Shim, painting of motor mounts and manifold

Afternoon Everyone,

Painted the new motor mounts and manifold.




Been working on shimming the valves the last few nights. Going to need more cigars and beer. Haha.





Then I started working on the coil setup.

Man, that coil bracket is nice. I almost wish I would have went with those coils so I could use that fancy looking bracket. You wagon is super clean. Fine job.

Took forever to get them fixed. More than welcome to come by. Plenty of beer, scotch, and cigars.

Evening everyone,

Worked on the coils some more. Used phenolic for now. Will most likely make a metal piece and powder coat it. Temporary hardware installed.

Afternoon everyone,

Not much to report. Got a drill press to help with some of the Volvo and house work.

Good Morning Everyone,

Ordered my flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate the other day. Should arrive next week. Will yank the motor out this weekend.

The MS3pro arrived today. Will start planning my attack to learn how to install this system.





Thanks,

Its going well. Trying to get some of these big purchases out of the way before our first kid arrives May 28th. My feeling is once our daughter is born, time and money for the volvo will decrease. Haha.

Morning Everyone,

Got the clutch setup in the other day. Got it put in this afternoon.









However, when I press the fork all the way, it hits the BH and is just barely touching the pressure plate. Leads me to believe the fork and or TOB isn't the correct setup for this...


Pressed all the way




Thanks,

Good Afternoon everyone,

Worked on adjusting the fork and TOB today. Ended up putting .306" spacer under the pivot ball to have the TOB just barely touching the pressure plate. If I removed one more washer, the TOB wasn't touching the PP. Don't know if there is supposed to be an air gap of some sort. Still researching.





Will setup a clutch fork return spring (don't know if I need it) and will need to get some different bolts for the starter.

Thanks,

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Got the motor and trans in the other other day. Bolted everything up today. Realized I was missing the collar for engine and BH. Found it in a box of parts and started cleaning it up. Debating on powder coating it...

I started to mock up the J-pipe design for the exhaust manifold and turbo setup. Wanted to get the turbo up more. Used some PVC and wood to come with a design. Will then take it to a coworker to fabricate this correctly out of steel.

Was thinking of putting the external wastegate on the backside ( this would be about the middle of the PVC). Thoughts?







Thanks,

Looks great!

For your wastegate, that idea sounds good, but be sure to get it clocked for suspension space.

I don’t see why the wastegate wouldn’t work there. I’d try to angle it up a little if you can just so the exhaust doesn’t have to make a hard 90* when it opens. I’m just gonna use an internal gate this time around. Easy packaging, less noise.

I was thinking about moving it more to the front to give the exhaust more room to clear. Will know more when everything arrives next week.

Excellent build Mr. Hub! I'm not an Amazon man, but came close. I was in Japan back in 2010 and a fantastic 122S came up for sale in south GA. I tried to hold the guy with a deposit until I could get back to the States, but someone showed up with cash (a 2 owner 2 door 122S).

You are doing excellent work.... and will find it a bit more challenging after that baby arrives! I do like the 122 Wagon, always makes me think of surfboards and wood sides.......

Thank you for your kind words. I’ll keep everyone posted.
