Default Trans o rings, not solenoid?

The very experienced Volvo shop that's going to replace my motor says I should do some orings in the AW71 trans while the motor is out. He says they are approx 6-8" in dia and are in or just behind the bellhousing. I have no idea what he is talking about.
???

Bell housing orings. They slide the bell housing off and replace the two oring. I would do them if I were you especially if you plan on keeping the car.

Aha, thanks for those. I'm not sure I want to remove the bellhousing to replace those, if the trans is excellent and trouble free. 155k on it. Well I"m not sure I want Them to do it, seems too much possibility for error, even though they are supposed to know etc.

it’s more an age thing than miles and a no brainer with the trans out. It’s really no more risky than any other job that requires vaguely any degree of competence.

Why anyone would bother paying someone (or even waste their time doing it themself) to change a motor in a 7/9 though

Just seems easier to sell it to the state and go find another one that’s vaguely decent or cared for...if 7/9s are your thing...
