      QUESTIONS

      1. What's the Volvo procedure for prepping the deck / sleeve tops for a new head gasket? I've got the old gasket material off w/ brakleen and a razor blade. Does Volvo suggest any sanding or other prep?

      2. Shims w/ feeler gauges. The largest feeler gauge (35 thou) is a snug fit, but I can get it in there by hand. Is this snug enough? Or does it need to be such a tight fit I would need to hammer them in?

      1. i prep the head as you did.... and... also if it is pretty bad use brake clean with 3m scrub cloth lightly by hand.





      2. i like them snug ...if you need .036 ...example ...and dont have one in your set i put .017 and .019 together.

      not for those reasons ... eliminating torque to yield process , zero chance to fuuck up and if you ever have to pop it off again , again , worth every penny.

      At $20 per head bolt set, I'd need to pop it off 6 times to break even

      when you hear that last torque spec click from your torque wrench on every one of those studs and it's your caR and the extensive work your doing...worth every penny ... when you're doing your torque to yield and your forehead perspiring with all kinds of cheap replacements head bolts outs there , think at that moment what i said.

      Ok Dougy one more point of clarification - don't want to belabor the point, but, 0.035 will require hammertime to go in. The 0.032 slide in snugly but they do slide in. Combining 0.016 + 0.017 to make 0.033 slides some of the way in, using 0.016 + 0.018 to make 0.034 less of the way in.

      Which do you think is the best choice? (0.032 is sitting there in the pics so you can see the #, but it would slide down all the way if I pushed it.)

      i like this shim style also ... letting coolant pass /upper deck ... although on my 690awhp they were locked in all the way across.

      negative....bend rods back on 850's and torque to yield bolts.

      Freeze them... and maybe they'll fit... Freezer is 0F, outside air is 60-80F... that's a nice delta-T... Can also use computer duster or CO2 to get it down way way lower.

      Yeah alternatively I could torch the sleeves. I'll try gentle hammertime and see what happens.

      Shims are in.

      Ugh, another thing I forgot to order. Someone tell me what else I will discover I also forgot, so I can order that now too.

      IMG_20190714_171035.jpg

      Potential issue - possibly not. I don't think this is cause for a head re-surfacing, but LMK if anyone knows better on these heads.

      Sooo much carbon. What do we think - should I hit it with a brass brush to try to clean it off, or just leave it as-is?

      Clean that crap off. Maybe pool some Berrymans chem dip, Seafoam, or other chemicals to break that stuff down. While you have it off, make sure your valve seats are clean too. Also, get a straight edge and feeler gauge and make sure your head is flat.

      Not sure if the myth is true, but supposedly in some P2's they burn valves because of excessive carbon on the exhaust valves, which eventually lead to them not being able to close completely.

      In a dumb move, I assumed that my local dealership could supply those o-rings so I could get them today.

      Dealer price on 5 o-rings ... $50! LOL! It was Culver City Volvo in LA ... nice enough to offer me them at "MSRP" ... $25.

      Plan B, finding the right size o-ring at a parts store / harbor freight / whatever ...

      Be careful because there are many different materials O-rings can be made from and also different hardness's. If you do not have the right one you could have serious problems. McMaster Carr has many sizes and some of the materials. Suggest you make sure you know what material and hardness and size to buy before you go this route.

      Could be a very expensive lesson.

      Yeah just the spark plug channel seal, should be common, any material that can be exposed to oil and operate at temp will be fine. I probably could just RTV it and be OK. Trust me I'm an engineer.

      Didn't feel like spending more time driving around, bought 10 of em off FCP. And 10 oil filters just to get the free shipping, haha. It's got 230k on it, it'll be a miracle if it makes it another 10 oil filters.

      That's encouraging! At this point I just want it back on the road. I attempted to hit that carbon buildup in the head with a little brass wheel dremel wheel and harbor freight dremel last night ... didn't even touch it. Let it soak in top engine cleaner for a couple hours, tried again, got a little off but none of the hard caked on stuff.

      Will try it again with my corded drill and see if I can chip away at it, if not, back to the drawing board. Am getting kind of tempted to bring it back to that engine guy who got the broken stud out and ask him to clean up the whole thing for me.

      Here's a pic. After soaking for a while in Seafoam upper engine cleaner. Not making a dent.

      B12 chem tool... Better than seafoam. Alternatively if you know someone with a soda blaster or walnut blaster, that should work well too.

      Thanks for the heads up - I think I'll try it overnight, this time putting in the plugs and filling each chamber with Seafoam. If that doesn't work I'll check out B12 chem tool, looks like only $3.99 at Pep Boys.
