Yup, common issue on that oil seal. Lost one in my wagon the same way. Find yourself a washer, hog out the ID to slide over the pipe, trim the OD to just barely fit inside the hole in the block, put it on then the seal. It gives the seal some support, helps it stay in place.

lunchb0x washed his cars and was nice enough to soap up the 242 so we can put it in the garage



Front seats out. Dash coming apart. Will it make wiring more easy?



Intermediate shaft is in the B230FT

Good idea, old alarm systems can do some "funny" stuff...Last month I had to reach past one under the dash to run a gauge wire, it was just hanging there so it got gently nudged to the side. On the way home I got a text, "that car won't start!", I mentioned that alarm box and that is what the problem was. Bump the alarm box again and the car starts haha.

These old units are simple yet fickle.

My alarm system was installed in the mid to late 90s. Did it's job...until it didn't.

Had a new Volvo to the area come by for a look, a turn signal relay, and some bulbs

Ready for Euro Sunday here tomorrow Had the inline fuel pump start to act up on the wagon. Freed it up with a hammer, as things should be Replaced it with the pump from my retired 744 turbo. lunchb0x is making some changes to his interior in the meantime
