      No, the motor was bad. It was locked up. It wouldnít turn with 12 volts. 18 would but it was quite... labored

      The failed ones Iíve changed all look like this.. the copper colored dust is from the bushings breaking down I believe.

      Does anyone know if itís possible to repair a blower resistor? I read online if it fails you only get speed four but I didnít have any speed work for the fan.

      A resistor isnít really repairable. Itís either the correct value or itís not. I suppose if you know what value it should be, you could open one up and replace the actual resistor. Pretty easy to change the whole unit... and fairly inexpensive at a salvage yard

      Makes sense. I had seen on a different forums someone had replaced the thermal fuse inside and was able to use their same resistor again. However if mine if just cooked I'll go grab one. What values should I be testing for to see if it's a good one from the JY?

      Early Spring 2020 update. Finally got around to procuring my own set of tools, no more bothering dad to borrow his, lol. They're cheap but at least they're mine.

      Spring 2020 R Update by CYB3RBYTE, on Flickr

      Pulled a working power stage from my local yard. Installed it, and still nothing from the blower. I was receiving power from the power stage itself, so I pulled the blower. Oof, it's definitely given up the ghost.

      Spring 2020 R Update by CYB3RBYTE, on Flickr


      Cleaning it, lubricating it, and testing it, this blower is gone. It didn't even try to spin connected to the battery, the contacts inside must have failed. New Bosch unit ordered off eBay, hopefully get that in by the end of the week if it gets any colder here.

      Next up, fixing a stupid mistake. Don't try to move mirrors that won't fold in, because then you break it off entirely, lol. Again, junkyard find, with better paint than the old one as well!

      And finally, I noticed the right engine mount was destroyed when replacing the timing belt. Found a good condition slightly used one in my stash, and now my oil thermostat is no longer half an inch from my subframe haha.

      Exhaust is coming soon. What are best practices when removing the turbo exhaust flange?

      Tools are tools.

      Someone will always have nicer. Someone will always have worse.

      Knowing how to use the tools you have will be more important than what tools you decide to buy.

      The majority of my hand tools come from Harbor Freight and Iíve not had a problem doing any of my own maintenance.

      Blower motor failure is a common occurrence on these. A new quality motor will last you a long time. As easy as they are to pull, I usually keep my eyes peeled in the junkyard and grab a newer one when I see it.

      I look forward to updates

      A taste of what's to come:



      Do I have to use the $8 a piece Volvo 8mm lock nuts for the exhaust manifold and downpipe? Or can I use something else because there's a part of me that's gonna be really sad if I need to buy $60 of only Volvo nuts.

      +1. YEARS ago I said I would go without shoes if my choice was red plastic if I wanted brown leather.
      Now, I might take those tools (I'm sure they weren't cheap) and work towards replacement over time to get what I ultimately wanted.
      Truth is just like John says. They're also YOURS and you don't have to borrow. I also have been following and like what I see!

      I would. The other options fall apart or gall during install....my downpipes only coming off with a dremel in the future.

      Belmetric has plenty of options for cheap. Either in copper plated.

      That second link for the "stover nuts" is what I bought a bag of 50 a while back, and have had no issues with them. (That listing shows a box of 300 for under $7. Yup 300 nuts for under $7)

      I bought a bunch of the bolts from the first link you gave me Chuck. Thanks!

      In other good news, the blower motor turned up, and after install everything is working! Reading my ECC codes, I only have two now: 2-3-1 (ventilation damper), and 2-3-3 (floor defrost). I am going to do the motor readjustment procedure because I rebuilt the floor motor, but maybe it's in the wrong position still.

      My work has been kind enough to close down during these odd times and pay me throughout the period we are going to be closed. Think Iíll tackle the oil pan seals now. Iíve been hearing things about the ďrevisedĒ pickup, what is it (part number) and is it alright if I donít replace it as I donít have one on hand?

      Volvo 30650552 is the pickup. You also need 2x water pump bolts (Volvo 985151) and the seal kit (Volvo 30750783).

      Okay. Iím going to wait on the oil pan job then until later while the pickup is coming.

      Finally got the driverís side knee bolster back in place. The plastic behind the vinyl mounting tabs was destroyed, so I had an idea to cut up a mixing stick and superglue them in place to provide support. Holding so far.





      The exhaust showed up today. While I have plenty of time to install it, I'm quite eager. I can't figure out how the rear tailpipe section is oriented when installed, which way do I setup the hangers? If anyone has a Simons or similar exhaust please post it so my dumb brain can understand.



      When I was removing some of the turbo flange bolts today, I noticed this. Cleaned it up and tightened the hose, but is this anything to be worried about? Such as back-pressure of some sort from headgasket? No oil in the tank, just coolant but it was leaking from the overflow.

      The rear hanger goes on with the captive nut facing the ground. Two hangers are provided, one for stock exhaust tip one for the included cannon.

      Got to work yesterday on the removal of the old, terrible exhaust.







      Great. Now I won't feel bad after trying to do a pull and stinking up the road.



      New to me angle flange housing and downpipe installed. Got a little late in the evening to disturb the neighbors when people are all home these days, haha. Going to be working on getting the new system in today.

      Iíve been lucky to speak with many of my managers directly on the subject. Because of the generosity on their part (and granted they were one of the first companies to pay their workers throughout this), I volunteered to work the skeleton shifts while we were shutting down. Thereís a weird feeling seeing everything being taken down around you.

      Anyways, got to work lining up the new exhaust this morning. I am 5 inches short, so I have to find some way to bridge this gap. My thought is some sort of pipe in halves that can be clamped together if people sell those.





      Another issue, the heat shield on the side of the gas tank fell off. The mounts disintegrated. Will I be able to get by until I get some heat wrap or something?



      Doesnít look too bad. End pipe is a little large for my tastes but maybe Iíll get used to it.

      Unfortunately I never got the stock tip. From my previous photos that was all that was under the car. Iíll try to get it to go higher.

      Wish I had one of those. Got the install finished with a temporary joiner. I need to find someone who can weld to get it connected permanently.

      Car started leaking oil as soon as I started it, couple drops every 30 seconds, I'm guessing it was either something to do with the turbo oil banjo bolt or the turbo drain return tube. I snugged the bolt down pretty good so we'll hope it's not the banjo bolt. Got it back to storage and grabbed the daily for now.

      Since the Governor decided to lock down the state, I figured I better go back and grab the project in case there are things I can do on it.

      Got a cheap O2 sensor in the exhaust for the moment, going to an OEM sensor once I pass emissions. Think the old one was destroyed?



      Remounted the tailpipe as well, using the stock bracket. It's not touching, but its gonna get burned if I leave it like this. Gonna try to bend the bracket a little lower.



      So now when I start the car I have a pretty good oil leak. Methinks it's the oil line as pictured, and the rear motor mount below is covered in oil as well as the back of the front subframe and oil pan. Any thoughts?









      It's the only thing I messed with during the exhaust install so that has to be it. I have a whole bunch of gaskets arriving on Thursday.

      When it rains it pours... coolant that is. Found this on the passenger side. Stock Volvo radiator for replacement?

      I have Nissens in both my 850Rs. I have an all aluminum DO88 I bought and later found out are often unreliable, so Iím torn as to whether I am willing to have the DO88 pressure tested and use it, or just not risk it.

      Throwing away a $400 radiator is cheaper than doing a head job I suppose if it fails....

      But a lot of people go OE. You probably should look at the heater core, firewall junction and all 8 coolant hoses at the same time.

      The revised oil pickup is not compatible with the N pan

      Thanks for the info, Jared. Seems I've ordered the wrong metal gasket for an angle flange downpipes, it was far too small. Does anyone have the PN for it?

      Decided to do the rear brakes before the weekend. This is probably the most I've been ashamed of my ignorance in fixing cars, I should've checked this earlier. Parking brakes need some love still, waiting on the parts.



      Because that gas tank heat shield fell off, and I don't feel like being the human torch before halloween this year, I did what I could with heat wrap. After a short drive I checked the temp in that area and it seemed nominal.



      This weekend finally came, however the rest of the repairs were put off by the family P1 car, my brother's C70, needing a brake job. Easiest I've done in a while, except for the fact that everyone sells three different size of rotors and nowhere knows which were specific to the C70 or model year.

      Got to the turbo gaskets today, and now that I have some ratcheting wrenches it's much easier to get at those manifold to housing bolts. Got everything apart in about an hour, and back together in about two, with cleaning of the tube a little as well as the other surfaces on the block. It got oil EVERYWHERE.





      Again, ordered the wrong gasket for the drain line. It fix the holes perfectly, but I didn't want the little tail on it. Cut it down, I thought I did pretty good.





      As you can see, the old bottom drain gasket was destroyed, but I think it was the top and bottom causing the leak as the top was full of oil too.



      I put all the bolts back on the correct way this time, just for ScottishBrick lol.



      Forgot to mention, the turbo feels really nice and tight from the rear, no play that I could see. However that may just be from how it's mounted, or idk. Either way it's getting a new CHRA eventually.

      With all this pandemonium, I've been pretty anxious lately. This has been a welcome getaway from that, even if I never left the house.

      Turbo to DP Gasket PN 8642449

      The "tail" on the return drain upper gasket is so you can slide it in with the drain tube in its proper position.

      Ah, well, the more you know. It looked really similar to the oil pan gaskets, albeit thinner of course.
