s60r head gasket on 850?

5 posts in this topic

hi guys

 

I am back on my engine rebuild project after a long break! (money...) but have an issue. due to bore wear I had to rebore so am now at 83mm not 81mm so the same as a 2.4l t5 or r i believe. However now my stock t5 850 head gasket slightly overhangs the top of the bore. I have heard that an s60r gasket can be used but the ?coolant holes seem different. Is this true can it be directly applied? Do i even need to if a little overhang isnt a problem?

i compared the 2 at volvo today and the difference in diameter of each bore on the gaskets themselves is only 1mm between the 850 and the r strangely, i thought they would be like the bores and have a bigger difference....

 

thanks for your help!

You can use the S60R gasket.

Thanks Tim I was hoping you would reply! So there is no issues with coolant flow etc then with a stock head and block (other than larger bore) when using the r gasket? It has quite a few less holes which made me twitch a bit :wacko:! (BTW love your flaming 850 vid  :thumbsup:)

 

thanks again
