My workstation had been experiencing a lot of instability lately. Decided to tear it down and look for issues, and look at what I found:
Made a quick trip to an Ace Hardware to get an o-ring for a coolant cross-over pipe on an EJ25 I was helping to put together. Turns out a #34 or #44 o-ring sits perfectly in the gland on the block and seals the crossover pipe perfectly as well.
With a coolant expansion tank failure on the Volvo, it’s zip ties to the rescue. Can they handle the heat? I’m pretty sure they can, I accidentally baked a few of them in the oven at 375 for about an hour and they showed no signs of discoloration or melting. This’ll work until I get the new coolant tank next week.
