How to Rebuild a Turbo - Part 1 of 2
Rebuilding a td05h 16g turbo. This
process can be applied to many journal bearing turbochargers. :) It definitely comes in handy to
know how to do this when you are in this type of hobby.
4/25/12: Small explanation on the balancing of the rotating assembly since
I get so many comments regarding it. This particular turbocharger, td05h, has it's rotating assembly
components balanced separately. This means each individual part (compressor
wheel, turbine wheel/shaft) gets balanced separately. This allows for easy
interchangeability of parts in case they need replacing. This is why I am
able to install a td05 20g wheel on this turbo without having to balance the entire
rotating assembly. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR ALL turboS OUT THERE. You need to research whether
your specific turbo (if it's not td05h)
was balanced as an assembly or "component balanced" like I explained above.
I hope this information helps. Good luck in your projects. Stay Boostin'

2012 Volvo 760 - Only The Fittest Survive
Volvo 760 turns 30 - The car that saved Volvo Car Corporation
In February 1982 - 30 years ago - the new Volvo 760 GLE was launched. No
typical Volvo, yet unmistakably a Volvo. Seen as elegant and exciting with
its characteristic design it was well received. The 760 became the car that
actually saved Volvo Car Corporation back then and paved the way to the
modern company of today.
When the first plans for the new car were drawn up around 1975 the
automotive industry in general was experiencing a lot of difficulties, and
Volvo in particular. The first oil crisis had just passed and at Volvo,
problems were rising regarding the build quality of the new Volvo 240. It
was also a very difficult economic time for the company. It was expensive
to build cars in the Torslanda plant, too expensive in fact, and it was no
longer profitable to export them.
The 200-series was soon to be complemented with a new generation of smaller
cars from the Dutch subsidiary Volvo Car BV, but at the same time a new
large volume-seller for the 1980s was desperately needed. A car designed
and built to meet the continuously higher demands for fuel efficiency, Exhaust emission control and safety that
kept appearing. It was just as difficult to foresee what kind of car the
customers of the 1980s would want.
A new way to tackle the task
The 760 was conceived in a time when conditions changed almost daily and in
the company there were many strong and different opinions regarding the new
car. There was no Internet to surf in order to broaden the views but Volvo
made use of the best possible tool available at the time, a very thorough
analysis of the surrounding world. Careful studies and large mental
flexibility would lead the team on to the right track and along that track
there was very little or no room for mistakes.
More car at less weight
It was decided that reliability, fuel efficiency, longevity,
serviceability, low noise levels, design and performance in that order
should guide the development work on the new project. It was also decided
that rear-wheel drive should be employed, that the wheelbase should be 10
cm (4") longer than that of the 240. The car was also to be somewhat
shorter than the 240 but have the same width and be 100 kg lighter. For
cost reasons most of the technical content was to be carried over from the
200-series with only minor modifications. This was, for instance the case
with transmissions, suspensions and many other system solutions. The
exterior design, however, had to be brand new.
The project, which was now known as the P31, was subject to changes. The
technical specifications were only finalized at about the same time as the
final design was frozen. Choosing the right design is just as difficult and
important as filling the car with the right technical content.
The introduction was initially planned for 1980 but was at this stage
postponed until 1981.
Boxiness becomes a concept
There were many design proposals to consider, many of them from outside
designers. Most of them were sedans but Volvo's head of design, Jan
Wilsgaard, was more into a hatchback. The finance department, on the other
hand, wanted a design with straight and flat surfaces, with angular lines,
preferably 90 degrees, in order to reduce the production costs as much as
In the end, the battle stood between the favourite of the marketing
department and the engineering department alternative, when the sometimes
very secretive Wilsgaard pulled an unknown contestant out of his sleeve. It
was his own proposal which blended the properties in a different way: A car
with a drawn out rear end in the estate fashion with straight body sides
and with an abruptly cut-off rear, in other words a cut-back. This cut-back
remained in the final discussions but eventually a modified version of it -
a sedan with an almost vertical rear screen and boxy rear section - was
chosen. The straight sides lent the interior a spacious feeling which was
also very comfortable. And above all, the car had real character.
It soon proved to be the right choice. In the midst of the round and
slippery soap dishes offered by other manufacturers, the Volvo boxiness was
a hit and soon turned into a hallmark. Very valuable during this selective
process was the use of so-called product clinics which Volvo used for the
first time and at which people's reactions regarding the new car were
investigated without revealing any details like the brand of car etc. The
reactions were not entirely positive, but in the USA, the planned main
market for the new car, people loved it and looked upon it as their type of
The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.
Tour an die Cote d´ Azur 1993 (Volvo 760 GLE TD)
1982 - also vor genau 30 Jahren - feierte der Volvo 760 GLE im Monaco
Premiere. Zu diesem Anlass habe ich meinen alten Urlaubsfilm (Hi 8-Video)
von 1993 auf die Autoszenen reduziert und hier veröffentlicht. In nur 4
Tagen rissen wir 2.346 km ab - und keinen Meter Autobahn :-)

Volvo 760 TD snowy cold start
Rare snowfall and cold winter temps in Seattle, video of getting my 1983
Volvo 760 GLE turbodiesel started and
dug out. Ambient temperature was roughly 27F, car had sat overnight. How a
healthy D24T should start when engine mechanicals, fuel system, glow
system, and charging/starting systems are all in proper order. I would have
lifted the hood, but didn't want to move all the snow...
Apologies for the car's appearance, it is a project that has been sorted
mechanically but not yet cosmetically.
