I'm confused now. My piece doesnt have a threaded shaft.

The threaded part on mine is coming out of the rafiator.

Thats what I was worried about. Volvo webstore does not show these parts as available for a 1998, and this might be an aftermarket radiator that is different.

The heat exchanger in the rad is internally pipe threaded, the fitting above screws into that.

Yours might screw to were I have the 24 mm thin nut above and the Pipe O-ring slips directly in there.

After all that, I think I would have just cut the lines and ran an external cooler. If I remember correctly those lines have almost no pressure. You have far more gumption than I have. =)
