Re: Head Gasket

He needs to pull the head and see if it can be resurfaced and replace with all new gaskets. Continuing to drive it as is will ultimately cause more damage and expense. I speak from experience and just finished replacing the head gasket and resurfacing. Good luck.

Re: Camshaft Position Sensor Warning

The 1993, it can go either way. It was not necessary to force it or I would have taken notice. I'm not a complete idiot, maybe only half of one. I rotated the crank shaft a couple of revoutions to make sure everything lined up as recommended, then realized I had not noted the position of the sensor ...

Camshaft Position Sensor Warning

I just finished replacing the head gasket on a 1993 Volvo 850. I was extremely careful in all the process steps and took photos along the way as a reminder of how everything goes back together. After completion and trying to start the car, it did not sound right and when it did start, it ran poorly ...

Re: Camshaft Position Sensor

I have my working sensor pulleddoing the head gasket. This is not going to belp you much. Mine has open circuit between all pins. Also checked each pin to the positioner body and all pins are open as well. Tried several ranges on my meter with the same results. I had to replace mine a while back and...

Re: Suggested Valve Sring Compressor

Thanks for the tip. From the MSD data sheet it looks like it is made by Motsenbocker and I can find it at Home Depot and other stores. Thanks.

Re: Suggested Valve Sring Compressor

Wow, what a contraption! Your a man after my own heart. I have been thinking of figuring out some homemade tool myself as well. Can you tell me the throat size of the C clamp you wound up using. Thanks so much for the post.

Re: Suggested Valve Sring Compressor

I didn't realize you could use this tool with the head out of the car. Do you need three hands to use it when re-installing the keepers? I don't see any instructions, but assume you have to keep the valve pushed up and seated while compressing the spring, then install the valve keepers. Is this corr...
