Thanks for the lesson.did the valve adjustment cure the compression problem and rough running?
He did no even show how to remove, measure, or crank the cam in position. lazy asshole!
Hello! I am writing you from Russia. Have in their use of the Volvo 940. Knock valve I want them to adjust, but I do not know the sequence of operations, and that it needs. Could you describe in detail the process of adjustment, and that it needs. Vehicle mileage 180000 km. Thank you!
Contact IPD. I think it s $ 200 bucks refundable when you return the shim kit plus you need the 40 dollar tool to compress buckets, shims were 3 or 5 bucks each
I rented the entire shim kit form IPD, then just paid for the shims I needed. I d advise you to do the same.
these are a pain, it s what it is.
Give me push rods and rockers any day.
Thanks for that little lesson, Mark. Very interesting. Too often it seems design and cost priorities leave the person owning the aging car out in the cold. I was a motorcycle mechanic and saw lots of bucket-and-shim adjustment in that world. It made me like my 2-stroke Suzukis even more.
Today valve adjustments are automatic, and expected to be, back in 1988, not so much. It was expected mantainence. I predict timing belts will go away soon as well
Indeed surprising. On the other hand, its, not. Volvo had always good engines that can go a long time. Maybe it was their way of car building on lower costs
