is everyting ok after about 10000 miles ?

Did that job last year and everything went well.

They milled off something like 1/10th millimeter. If this causes
any problems with the chains - wow.

Instead get a plastic header bottle with a low water warning switch
instead of  those good looking but dangerous stainless bottles. 
You never see if you are low on coolant with those.


>From what i've read on some volvo forums about PRV's, you do NOT want 
to have any amount of the head surface removed in any circumstance. 
>From what i've come across in my research, it causes timing chain 
problems as even the slightest change in the distance of the cams 
from the crankshaft will push the chain tensioners to the limits of 
their ability to keep proper tension on the chain.. You also have to 
remember the timing cover bolts to both the block and the head, so 
changing the tolerances between the block and head would likly mean 
the timing cover wouldn't fit quite right after you torqued the heads 

Granted, i've never actually rebuilt any of these engines myself.. 
but this is what my research has told me when looking in to what it 
will take to rebuild the engine in my D
