Also as far as a m40. I have a lot of those parts that I took from a different Volvo. I have been thinking about doing this for a while already. I love manual transmissions a lot.

There are a few different bushings for the automatic shifter but the most common one to fail is the ball socket bushing. Volvo never sold the bushing separately, you had to buy it with the linkage which is no longer available. We found a source for the bushings and sell them to the other suppliers who then mark them up.

Three of the socket bushings and 1 of these grommet type bushings will fix most linkage issues.

There are column lever bushings and bell crank bushings as well but they usually don't wear like the linkage bushings.

I pulled the transmission pan this evening. Lets do a little test to see how learned you are

Question 1.
Why was the BW35 transmission bone dry after a 15 Mile drive.
A. A magic Fairy stole it all
B. The transmission donated it to the a blood donor
C. The transmission dipped its cookies in it.
D. The bolts holding on the transmission pan were finger tight

Question 2.
What doesn't belong in a transmission pan.
A. Transmission fluid
B. Small amounts of clutch material
C. Small amounts of metal
D. A random unidentified spring

Extra credit.
HOW THE HECK DID A RANDOM SPRING GET INTO THE TRANSMISSION PAN?

Yes. Planetman (my brother) will PM you about the bushings and gasket.

Yes it does. It's what engages the parking pawl.

That's impressive learning for a 15-yr-old. Not to mention healthy resilience and optimism. Good signs.

In addition to the other manuals mentioned, I highly recommend Auto Mechanics Fundamentals by Stockel and Stockel. It's a yearly release, so used copies are cheap. Diagrams and explanations to your heart's content -- wish I'd known about it as a teenager. Any 1960s or 70s edition (~500 pages) will work for your car, but if you find a later one (e.g. 1990, ~600 pg) it has additional chapters to cover fuel injection and various types of sensors and what they all do and how and why. After you finish reading the automatic transmission chapter, you'll be ahead of many of us.

Sadly, Amazon changed their policies regarding books with multiple editions: they no longer allow a vendor to specify which used edition they're selling. I've had good luck asking the vendor directly.

There's an old expression: "Don't judge a book by its cover."

Like many drivers of old Volvos I own, maintain and drive them because I really, really like to do so, not because I cannot afford anything else.

Hell, I sold my Ferrari and kept my 244 Turbo and 740 Turbo.

Note: The Ferrari was too difficult to work on, parts were pricey if not made of unobtanium.

These old bricks in contrast can still be kept humming like a top without spending a lot of dough, and parts are pretty much available.

But yeah, you gotta be a bit "touched" to go deep like some of us have.

Happy motoring.

That's really cool of you. The Volvo seem to have a uniqueness about them. When I use the term "crappy Volvos" nothing mean is meant. I mean quite the opposite. While they might appear crappy, they do seem to keep coming out still putting along.
