    @Rwb , this was the biggest part of it . I got rid of the plastic gibs and lapped in these metal gibs. Huge improvement.

    was gonna say take long time getting gibs worked down to perfection. Yes usage will seat them in better.
    Looked at a new mini lathe at harbor freight plastic gears not good. Then i read somewhere a guy is now making steel gears to fit harbor freight lathes.
    Im not sold on chinese built tolerances ,but i could use a lathe today if i had 1.
    Machinist auction near me coming up,might find what im looking for

    My last two came by way of craigslist when I least expected.
    I'd bypass Chineseium and hold out for a 9-10" with a gearbox.

    No pics this time.
    The 2004 Volvo XC70 spit a P305 code this weekend.
    Figured I'd start with sparkplugs.
    Fsck'n plastic, fsck'n meatbrain at Grease Phucky spilled oil all over the top end and it near filled the spark plug tunnels, fack'n Volvo covered the torx heads with the strut tower support where they didn't cover two of them with the compressor outlet to the intercooler.

    #5 destroyed, insulator burned off and gap at 1/4" +++
    #4 also
    #3 also a mess
    #2 finger tight
    #1 again , destroyed and YUUUUGE gap.

    Start up was a smoke cloud that ordinarily would have brought the fire department but who could tell the difference.

    Initial smoke cloud dissipated only to be replaced by the second cloud as the catastrophic perverter lit off. Finally the dead hole that had collected all the crud donated it's fair share smoke and the show was over.

    Prognosis? Volvo is happy, girl is happy, and I'm going back to Grease Phucky and fill Jose Jimenez's shorts with full synthetic.

    Use the sheep inseminator. Works on goats, too.

    wife had a s 80 t6 90 model. 4 coil packs went down 1 cold morning. Every torex screw was almost stripped out by previous owner.dremmel cut slot in every screw,used my hammer impct screw driver. Each 1 popped real loud,screwed out ok.
    Went to town n bought 6 new coil packs and set of plugs.then went to hardware store and got hex head screws put all bavk in n ran fine.
    I enjoyed gettin to them charge cooler lines come off, another line had to be pulled back n tied away. The coil pack cover came off to show a nasty disgusting mess my air hose removed.
    Volvos are great cars but hell to work on

    Man! Why do people let thier cars get this far bad before they find the hood latch and discover where all the noise is coming from?

    ours made no noise the coil packs just died.
    If 4 out of 6 are bad replace all,and sparkplugs were still good but while its that far apart replace them too or soon be doing the dismantle thing again
