Re: Fitting Volvo S60 Seats

The complete 300-page factory schematics manual for this car is available on-line here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Z7CFVFB7zk3DBaegOaBaNZOONOeY9HNE/view Page 159 gives me the schematic for the front heated seats. It's three circuits (1,2, & 4) coming in through connector 74/30 (74/31 on dr...

Re: Making the Cologne 2.9 Distributor-less using 4L OHV parts - TFI to EDIS Conversion

Time to get back at this project. Crank pulley with 36-1 trigger wheel installed and VR sensor. The air gap looks a little too large. Spec is .030 to .060".

Re: Aftermarket CAT rattle

I think my screw penetrated the catalyst a little, but the rattle is now gone. Not sure how long this will last, nor do I know how much of the catalyst has been shaken apart from rattling around previously. Well done. It will be interesting to see how long this holds up. I think these Davico cats a...

Re: 2.9 Crank Pulley / Harmonic Balancer Removal

Two years later, much easier coming out. By using a shorter jackscrew with a Gearwrench on the 5/8" end, I didn't need to remove the radiator.

Re: Fitting Volvo S60 Seats

Got the seat movement fully functional today. I removed most of the wires in the 20-pin connector - all you need to remain are two circuits (pin 14 & 15) that get 12V+ and a single Ground (pin 16). 20240614_161909.jpg I also removed the sub-harness for the airbag circuitry and seat occupancy mod...

Re: Fitting Volvo S60 Seats

I was going to ask you if they had heaters in them. I think that's going to be tougher to sort out as it's not a simple on/off switch controlling the circuit. But perhaps that's what I'll aim to configure, at least as a first step. Found a real helpful site with a guy who made one of these seats in...

Re: Aftermarket CAT rattle

Correction it was this "Davidco" CAT that I installed. That's the exact same one Darren had installed in my Scorpio while he owned the car. And indeed by the time I got the car, the matrix was rattling around making an awful noise. I was able to get Davidco to replace it at no charge. The...

Has one O2 sensor in the Y pipe.
It would need to have an O2 sensor AFTER the cat to be able to detect a cat removal. Well, that AND a PCM that actually monitors such a thing. P.S. EEC-IV does not.

Re: The last XR?

Awesome pic Mike - I've never seen it before! If the Merkur brand was to continue on, Karmann was out of the picture after Dec 23, 1988. The Scorpio was already being produced by Ford directly and as such, had a lower cost basis and had a chance to continue in the North American market. The XR4Ti wa...

Fitting Volvo S60 Seats

I stumbled across a 2nd gen (2011-18)) 2013 Volvo S60 at the junkyard on my way home from Carlisle. It had the upgraded leather sport seats. The color is just about a perfect match to the raven color used on both the XR and Scorpio. I had no choice but to bring them home with me. 20240605_140815.jpg...

Re: Thingaverse / Printables Downloads for 3D Printing Plastic Parts

Good thread Brad. Who was it at Carlisle that had that interior light lens 3D printed? It looked high uality to me but I don’t know if here’s willing to link the file here. That was Jeremy. I think he got it from Jeff Herson, but I'm not certain of that. As such, I don't believe it's in the "p...
