I broke a timing belt in a 940 once on the side of the freeway. It was two miles from my house so I jogged over and grabbed a spare belt. Jogged back and realized I forgot my impact halfway and the idea dawned on meI have yet to reach this level of redblock enlightenment
Good point, although I gave up the shortcut after hiperfauto pointed out that using this method risks breaking the crankshaft.I have a bar that hits the body frame rail just perfect.
Thank for the tip, I'll try that.You can just tap the seals in using the old wooden drift method. The little square marks on the seals are where you can hit it with a wooden dowel. I have done so many over the years i bought the tools from Volvo. Nice to see Robert Diy made some tools.
yup. Solid dowel in the cam, snug it down then pull 35ft lbs on it... pretty typical. I put the gear on after the VC. I also can't reach the cam with the VC on because there's a baffle in the way. I keep the pipe wrenches away from the $500 cams.So you're holding the pulley and relying on the alignment pin to hold the camshaft? Just checking.
