No idea about your problem, mine is fighting me too, won't start, after Removing and reinstalling the alternator of all things. Like wtf it should run even if I somehow managed to eff that up.

Anyway, your car looks awesome with the trim on the front, and I love the fogs too! Very sharp.

Reading the Bentley. Fuel pump fuses are good. Jacked up the car, engine running, hand on main pump, I can feel it "buzzing." Around back, remove the transfer pump floor plate. Cannot discern a "buzz" at the exposed portion of the pump. Disconnected the connector, 12v at one terminal, 10v at the other. To my surprise the car ran the same with the pump disconnected. Have I diagnosed a faulty transfer pump?

Picked up a turbo transfer fuel pump, fuel filter, oil filters and special-ordered a carrier bearing from IPD today. These engines make so much power they require two fuel pumps.

Make sure you replace the feed hose on the intank pump with the correct submersible hose.

I would say yes, but at idle it probably wouldn't make a difference.

No harm in replacing it.

Cool! What did you cut the tube with? Doesn't look there's enough room for the usual tube / pipe cutter.

It's a real bugger getting that sucker in and out of the tank.

Pulled the whole shebang out, and hacked it off with a cutoff wheel. Easy Peasy, just clean it off/out with carb cleaner when complete. I also bought a fuel filter, but didn't change that until after I ran the car a bit, figuring anything I missed would get caught in the old filter, and I could just swap in the new one.

Transfer pump in, can hear it running at fuel filler. Replaced the fuel filter and that little hose that goes from the main pump to the filter. Oil change.

Ran fine for +/- 10 miles. Then started to buck again. Topped off the tank (I lost some during the filter change and the gauge said empty), ran fine for the rest of the trip. While I am optimistic, I'll need to run her for a few miles before I trust it too far.

Did you change the in tank fuel pump hose as well? Mine looked like this, and while it doesn't have to be ripped in half, it exhibited the same issues you're describing. I'll be curious to know how it runs with less than half a tank.

Yikes! Yeah, the upgrade kit came with a hose. I think I measured correctly, but maybe the pick up sock is higher that it's supposed to be now. And, exactly why is the access hole so $##@! small?

Going to run her down town tonight with the half tank of gas. Cruise chicks, drag race some Ricers; all in a days work for a Volvo 245...

Car ran beautifully tonight. Cool night air, light traffic, sporty exhaust - so fun. Fog lights fill in the sides of the road noticeably.

Got to fix the steering. I'm pretty sure the play in the wheel is the worn u-joints on the manual rack steering shaft. Not sure what to do. A new or reman shaft would be nice, but I doubt if there is such a thing. The car steered better with the power rack and no pump (less play / faster ratio). Anything wrong with running a power rack without the pump?

I've heard of people draining powered racks, filling them with thicker oil (in some cases grease) and looping the lines.

Its likely not the U joints - its probably the 'rag' joint. The little rubber isolator. Volvo calls it a 'clutch'. They are expensive if you can find them.

Finally got out in the garage again. Got the trans mount out. The old one wasn't too bad (like the motor mounts).

The drive shaft support is super saggy. Got the shaft off. Does the bearing need to be pressed on and off? If so, I'll have the U-joints replaced. There appear to be small allen screws in the joints. If I back these out can I lube the joint with a needle?

Houston, we have problem...

I think I got the wrong bearing kit from IPD. The OD on the shaft is 1.75", the ID on the bearing is 1.25". IPD is closed today or I would swing by. Kit #106740 is the 2" unit, the kit I got, #106739, is the 1.75" unit. Dunno. Must be doing something wrong.

What is the benefit of swapping these cars to the one piece driveshaft?

And... I just found this on the IPD site:

FYI - The bearing diameter is determined by the OD of the driveline itself, not the bearing mounting surface OD.


Doh! I'm a dork.
