Volvos Through the Gorge - Volvo Car Cruise

It has been quite some time since we have been able to get together. During this unfortunate time everyone has been doing their best to navigate through unforeseen challenges. That’s why three prolific members of the Volvo community figured it would be best to partner up and host a car show before summer ends. IPD, Vol-Tech, and DLR Nordic got together and organized a car meet followed up by a drive through the majestic Columbia River Gorge ending up at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole in Bingen Washington. We hope you’ll join us for lunch. This is purely a gathering of enthusiasts looking to have some fun and chat about their Volvo. We look forward to seeing you September 25th!

SATURDAY 25th 8:30am


We will meet at IPD Volvo at 8:30am. If the main lot gets full we will start parking cars along Ainsworth Circle right outside of IPD’s driveway. For those who want to go for a drive through the Columbia River Gorge, we will leave IPD at 10AM. The caravan will hit I-205 North and then head out HWY 14 East to Bingen Washington (directly across from Hood River) For those of you joining us for lunch at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole you will receive a $5.00 off coupon.

Note***** IPD, DLR Nordic, and Vol-tech are not responsible for any incidents or accidents that may occur during this drive event. Everyone who attends will be driving and participating at their own risk.

  • Tutorials for installing IPD HD camshaft?

    Anyone know where I can come by a tutorial for installing IPD's HD camshaft in a '93 wagon?

    Hello. I installed a IPD non-turbo cam and cam gear in my 240 a while back. I watched a bunch of youtube videos to get familiar with what was going on. Some vids are good and some are horrible, but I was just there to get a look into what was involved. After that, I followed the Haynes manual for their section on camshaft removal and inspection and installation. You're making sure to release the tension on the bearing caps evenly, keep everything organized, use assembly lube (I did anyway), and re-tighten in the same methodical manner. Also, perform a valve clearance check while you are in there. Plan ahead for some other items, such as valve cover gasket, new cam shaft seals, etc. You should be able to get the same procedures in your 940 Haynes or Bentley books. The job wasn't too tough.

      Some folks just throw a new cam in without checking their valve clearances, but it's good procedure to go through the extra trouble to make sure your valves are shimmed correctly. If they're not, bad valve clearances can compromise the boost in performance you'd expect from a camshaft in the first place! This website has a good FAQ section which is focused on 700/900 series cars, but if you use it for engine mechanical tips it should apply just as well to a 240.
