Default Trappin Flames and Whatnot

Ok, so something interesting I've encountered yesterday. I happen to own 2 owners manuals, one for my model year '79 and an '81 that came with the auto when I bought it. Long story short, check out these flame trap position differences:

'79 - super convient to get to. I was confused when I first bought the car since everyone kept refering to their FT's being under the manifold. Long and behold, not for dem '70's!

'81+ - hardcore FT. Not the one I encountered,

Im sure everybody has this figured out, but I thought it'd be nice to show the illustrations from two seperate manuals.

I can't view your pictures courtesy of flickr being blocked at work, but if the '79 is up above the intake runners, that's a relocation kit.

Maybe imgur will work?

This one is built into the valve cover itself. It's super convenient compared to the '81. I had actually viewed the video on youtube with the dude talking about 240 flame traps. He had the relocation kit on his: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTUWWukdKdE

76-80 have the breather in the valve cover and there is no provision on the block.
81+ have a provision in the block.

OK! I figured it out! I also have some pics of the B21 in both manuals. I circled where the flame trap would be on the '79. I just circle where the flame trap isn't on the '81. Lol

Look on the right hand side of the block, near the back under intake runner 3, or close.

That change over to the block PCV has good points and bad. I think Volvo wanted to make sure you would buy a new car sooner rather than later. lol What they really could have done is use both locations like the earlier pushrod engines. But then the engines may have lasted wayyy tooo loong.

I once bought a 1981 245 that had oil getting into the cylinders and leaking all around the engine. The PCV on the block was completely clogged. So I vented the valve cover with an earlier cap. Fixed it.
