Engine - Volvo T6 Hybridz: Part IV

New tools acquired so off with the head!

Still need a counter hold tool to keep the crank shaft from rotating when taking the damper and pulleys off, but that I can whip up next weekend when welding continues.

This side is cleaned up and only one sensor remains... Did not have a large enough wrench or socket so I will need to get that off before parts washer.

Engine - Volvo T6 Hybridz: Part III

The dismantling has advanced a bit, but screeched to a halt as the tools did not endure the torture.

Onwards with the pictures!

Engine - Volvo T6 Hybridz: Part II

New motor has arrived and dismantling has started.

Slight change in venue, but at least the garage is warm in winter and also really close to our home. No need to drive 1.5 hours to the garage to tinker with the motor.

Motor in question is a Volvo B6284T that came from a Volvo S80 MY. 2003. The car was driven only 115k kilometres (according to the seller) so here is to hoping that everything is in order and checks out!

I'm not going to ramble very much this time and I will just dump the pictures as this is reasonably straight forward deal.

On to the pictures:

Fabrication - Engine: Part I and Patch Panels: Part II ½

This update is going to be a bit mixed due to work being done with new driveline, patch panels and a little bit of garage alterations.

So "lets get to work", as Tom says on his videos!


First up, the driveline components and engine along with some garage "remodelling":

I spent a weekend at the garage and first thing I did was to go and pick up some parts. So I drove on Friday to the garage and left to get parts on Saturday morning and drove over 400 kilometres total on that day!

First stop was in Tampere to pick up this; a busted aw30-43.
