Sprayed the bolts with PB Blaster - attempted to get a wrench and socket on there no luck. Ran to Sears and picked up a couple 10mm wrenches, one with the built in socket the other when an adjustable/tilt head - we'll see if those work... after a little lunch <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>

Forget about me changing the damn check valve for now - no luck on breaking the bolts loose even after let sit with PB Blaster on them. I hate wasting time on somewhat simple repairs if the bolts would just break loose. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Pretty. Does that say "Bones"? Looks very much like a ProSport.

Well today I took off early from work to fix my 442 small evap leak code. I was fully expecting to have to take half of my evap system to find the problem. The whole job took only minutes <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> It was just a cracked hose where it connects to the canister. <p>No more CEL <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

That's called a 'J" hose for future use

I like the orange and silver wagon. I want an orange and white one, if I can't find a black one! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Today I replaced the cabin filter. The old one had been there since 2001. I put a charcoal activated one in. Maybe it will help a little with my allergies.<p>Tomorrow, if the weather holds up, I will replace the upper engine mount bushing. I got a two piece replacement so I won't need a press.

Re: (ViriiGuy)

Yesterday a friend and I replaced the antenna mast that had been broken off. It was a worst case scenario and took a good long while to accomplish. Plus poor Peter had to get a couple stitches in his hand. <p>But hey! I have Radio again <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

I changed out the upper motor mount bushing yesterday. I replaced it with a 2 piece ABS bushing. Pretty easy job, except the bolt that came with the bushing was too thick to go thru the holes in the arm coming off the firewall. So I had to drill out the slots just a little bit.<p>But boy what a change. Shifting is smoother, acceleration seems snappier and braking even feels a little better. The old bushing was only holding on by a hair, as most of it had already worn/torn away. Before the swap the motor would move about 1.5 inches under operation in either direction. Now, maybe 1/8-1/4 of an inch. I need to replace the firewall mount and the body mounts next. They are cracked as well.<p>*edit*<br>In reference to the picture of Markymark's car with the hood up, what are you guys doing to make the hood open that far? Mine opens to maybe 65-70 degrees, but that one goes a full 90 degrees?

All Volvo hoods on 700/900 850/x70's open vertical.<p>If you look on your hood hinges, you will see a "tab" in the middle that the causes the hinge to lock at the lower angle. Grab the lower lip, and pull it downward on both hinges, you will then be able to open the hood to it's vertical postion.<p>Get the Volvo firewall torque mount. tThe new one is a revised stronger design.<p><IMG SRC="http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c190/huseinholland/cars%20cats%20houses/IMG_3194a.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

That's turned into a real nice looking car, if you paint it another color, your're nuts

Yeah, I've come to the same conclusion. Too many other projects going on, anyway.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">
