After 250 000 miles, I finally got around to renewing the valvetrain components of my Volvo 240. Springs and hushers being the main items to replace. I also adjusted the fuel distributor system pressure, control pressure, flow plate and CO mixture.
Cam out and new valve springs in
All back in!
Next up, tuning fual distributor system pressure
System pressure was only 4.6 (not shown in photo), so I carefully got the pressure regulator out and added shims to it. Quite a lot of shims was needed, I think the spring had gone weak.
That’s it. Next, replacing the power steering pump…
After buying an almost new car (3 years old), we agreed that proper rust proofing was essential and from Dinitrol’s own website chose Pro-tect services in Milton Keynes, although it is actually by Buckingham.
It took three days to get done, but unfortunately after picking up the car from Protect services, we realised it had multiple sets of scratches such as from a zip. All hip height, short but deep.
Unfortunately Frankie from Pro-tect Services in Milton Keynes was not very accomodating. He said it wasn’t him, and went quiet when we sent him photos of the scratches. We certainly won’t be dealing with Frankie from Pro-tect Servcies in Milton Keynes again!
Would I recommend Pro-tect Services DInitrol rust proofing center in Milton Keynes to friends and family? NO!
