Default Oil filter housing o-ring

I just received the oil filter housing o-ring from fcp but it seems a bit too small. The old one was black and flatened out, but the new green one won't stay in. It wants to pop out.
Part # is VOL-967343 Any help appreciated. Also have a new diff cover gasket. Do
I have to put any sealant on it?

Thanks alot

Steve

Shouldn't do that, not sure what to do except give FCP a call.

You shouldn't have to. If you choose to do so anyway, I recommend using Permatex Ultra-Copper, I've found it far superior at preventing leaks.

Damn it!!! I can't find the Volvo part numbers for these rubber o-rings. I bought 3 for my 240 turbos.

Just to clarify: Oil cooler thermostat assembly to engine block right??

240s same as 740s??

I'm still looking........

Okay guys, not completely positive, the receipts I get from the dealership aren't very detailed. You definitely want to double check when you get there. BTW, the o-ring is black.

part number: 925093 list: 1.39

Well I went to Volvo dealer with the housing in hand. They had two different part #s. One green, one black. The green did not fit, same one fcp sent. The black fits perfectly. (smith_t240 is correct!) I've been calling it the oil filter housing - It's the part that the oil filter screws into. The large round end fits up to the block with one large bolt. Not much fun
to get to. I need a better way to tighten it back up now. I'll post the $1.50 part # later, the receipt is at my shop. Thanks much for the replies.

There's two different o-rings, and you got the wrong one. FCP lists them both, with the instructions on how to chose. Since they were only a dollar each, I bought both so I wouldn't have to worry.

No sealant necessary on the diff gasket, but you can use it if it makes you happier. I probably would myself.

O-ring #925093 is what Volvo sold me. After re-installing the assembly, I installed a new oil filter, oil etc, and tried to fire it up. After about 20-30 sec turning enging over, big puddle of oil. Can't tell yet where it's coming from. This is all after installing rebuilt turbo. I guess I still have a ways to go.

I wish I had something to offer in return for this great info but being new to Volvos it may take a while. Thanks guys.
