Made brackets for the engine mounts. I ordered some cheap rubber mounts (both pass side) from Rockauto, I'll eventually go with diesel or poly.
I'll make some solid ones first to be sure of absolute correct fitment.
I'll also add a torque arm, still gotta figure out where.

Machined recesses to access the bolts, and for water drainage.






Welded in a tube for steering shaft clearance. I bought a power rack a while ago which is a lot sleaker than the manual rack, so it will clear easily.




Pizza and chocolate milk is a man's shop fuel right?




The passenger side is going to be welded (now just spotted for fitment), drivers side is bolted onto the original boltholes (even used the studs I pressed out of the old mounts )




Made plates for the engine, hope to make the engine fit later this or next week.

I might better start a 940 daily topic.. had some issues with it not running properly, sweetish smell, lots of steam coming from the exhaust manifold and within a couple of days the matching ripped exhaust gasket noise.
So with the little time I have I pulled the engine (suspect HG but also headwork to be done with 500K kms) and swapped a fresher one (244K).
Only I didn't know the manifold was cracked, so I'm still looking for one, hope to pick one up tomorrow and meanwhile fabricate a new one myself till the temporary one fails. I called every Volvo guy in the country but they all laughed at me trying to find an uncracked one..



Due to the blown HG the crack presumably got bigger faster.



Fresh engine



But on the bright side, we got a new lathe for dirt cheap. It's covered in gunk but after a thorough cleaning all the tracks and beds look almost new
