This is just for me to recount my efforts to keep my fleet of Volvos on the the road. Comments and suggestions are all welcome.

Going right

Posted Sep 21st, 2008 at 20:51 by Andrew (UK)

Tuesday morning I patched the two holes in the exhaust that were pointed out to me. I just ran the engine for a bit to help set the bandages and found it was blowing out of the junction into the rear box, so that got slathered in repair putty as well. Come Wednesday and it went into the garage to be welded and get the new tyres fitted. Then I picked it up on Thursday morning complete with new MOT certificate. There were advisories on the front ASB bushes, right inner tie rod end and the exhaust system. I'll get to all of them in due course but at least I will get to choose when to do the work now.
As a bit of light relief I put the prop-shaft back in the 1800 and put the old bolts in while I tightened up the nut that holds the centre bearing in place. It's been almost a year since I removed it from the car.
