Many thanks for the tips, much appreciated .... hope to get stuck in soon

RE the breather system, I recently sorted mine out (Also B230FK so will be identical) and the job is fresh in my mind so I'll offer a few tips...

 

1. Don't bother replacing the separator/breather box! The aftermarket ones are apparently flimsy and the original is easy to clean. I blocked up two of the holes on mine, filled the third exposed inlet with brake fluid, sloshed it about, let it soak and repeated the process once more. Now breathes clean and clear and only cost a couple of pounds worth of brake cleaner.

 

2. When you've got the box off the black, detach the lines that come from it and make sure they're clear. I replaced the smaller vacuum line that goes from the upper breather tube to the manifold with 4.5mm id silicone hose, again only a couple of quid. Also check the breather/vacuum/nipples on the manifold these get blocked too, a 2mm drill bit works perfectly to push through them.

 

3. Don't waste any time looking for the 'flametrap'! Lots of reference to these online and I searched for mine for ages in vain, in reality later turbo cars weren't fitted with them. Save yourself the time, there isn't one ;)

The ebay listing stated a check engine light was on for the last 3 years, after a long drive and cleaning, and disconnecting the battery check engine light is gone... Anyone got tips on doing rocker gasket on a Volvo redblock before I get stuck in...

Check engine (Lambda) light will go if you disconnect the battery, or if you pull fuse 1 for a few seconds. Just a case of waiting to see if it comes back....

 

Can't help with the rocker gasket but it looks very straight forward.

Belated hello and welcome from another Northern Irish shiter! Now living in the Lakes so you'll have passed by on your way up the M6.

 

Will have to keep an eye out for you around the Lisburn Rd next time I'm home.

Throttle body removed and a few mm of crud removed with carb cleaner and Gunk inside and out, linkage had been greased too much and had collected a fair bit of dung also.. Throttle body kinda sticks out in another wise dusty engine bay.. 304680edc79fdccfbec674c4395480db.jpg7076bba9d70610f8ed469596a5a9b0d6.jpg
