1998 v70 T% Wagon Cylinder Head Removal

Hi<br>I'm a newbie, with a blown head gasket.<br>Is there a tutorial on this repair? In any of these forums?<br>Are there any special tools needed?<br>The labor costs are prohibative, so I want to try to do this myself.<br>Naturally, the head would go to a machine shop, and I figure if I get hung-up, at least the head would be done, and I could deal with an indy for less $.<br>Any and all help appreciated.<br>Thanks,<br>Rob<br>Miami, Florida

Re: 1998 v70 T% Wagon Cylinder Head Removal (swc75)

I am right in the middle of replacing my cylinder head and as long as you are not in a big hurry it is doable. I have gotten some great help from the forums and the Haynes manual is also some valuable info. Mine is a 98 V70XC with turbo. Make sure you label hoses and etc. and even make some notes and sketches as you go so easy to go back together. Here are some other posts that maybe of help and give you some idea on the work involved<p><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=64863&st=40" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum...st=40</A><p><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/Repair/timingbelt2.php" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/Repair/timingbelt2.php</A><p><A HREF="http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8803" TARGET="_blank">http://www.matthewsvolvosite.c...=8803</A><p><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=68995" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum...68995</A><p><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=113450&hl=oregonxc" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum...gonxc</A><p>Good luck

Take digital pictures as you go that way there is no mistake later on (sketches don't get it for me).
