Re: [DMCForum] Removal of Timing Pulley

If your head gaskets keep failing and you've got exhaust in the coolant, 
then it's not the liner seals. They will only do one thing - put water 
in the oil. Trust me on this, you do not need to change the liner seals, 
they're a long winded, pain in the arse of a job. You DO however need to 
GET THE HEADS FACED. The manual tells you you can't do this, but this is 
nonsense, however you may have to use silicone on your rocker covers as 
there will be a fractional mismatch between the height of the heads and 
the height of the timing cover.

Brand new piston rings from Volvo are about £12 per piston over here.


I'll get to the timing chain allen key bolts soon. My head gaskets are
blown and my engine will overheat due to exhaust gases entering the
cooling system. This is the third time the heads are coming off in the
life of the engine (145,000 miles). So yes, according to the engine
manual, if you remove more than one head they recommend to replace the
cylinder liner seals, so I figure it's about time. While I'm down there
I'm going to add new Rod and Main Bearings and new "Totalseal" Piston Rings.
