If you can get a hold of them buy Koken. They have a nice little snap ring that retains the nut or bolt you removed and I've stood on mine using the breaker bar and a cheater bar.

Can you keep both side loose and then tighten the bolts down to pull it into place?

Been trying but all I've got is myself, can't see the other side or lift it without an extra hand.

So I'm calling it for the weekend. I guess I'm just a slow mover. Most of the dash wiring is installed, the dash bar is back in, got most of the plugs back together, it's back to being a rolling chassis.

A big thanks to you Felix (Fige) for helping me get the crossmember on correctly.
I got the dash back together last night and everything is back on track.

yes sir it did! I got the motor in today with the help of Felix (Fige, the Volvo guy). I am super busy this weekend though and don't know if I'll be able to get it running before Monday. Right now the only things that need to get done are relocating the cruise control, installing the DP, tightening all the nuts/bolts and a few little hoses here and there on the motor, plus installing the IC and a few more little pieces of the dash. Also, gonna order some saggy butt spacers for the rear end (probably 1/2"-3/4").

Has anybody removed the strut studs?

yea they arent to bad you just need to either cut them off for the back of use some force on a press of vice to push themm put. imm looking into saggy butt spacers for the fxt as well. but can see spending that much on spacers when they can be made cheaper. lol

good luck man

Not exactly. I also had seen that picture on google but was hoping someone might have a picture or could take a picture of the 3 lines by the black canister so I could be sure.

Just trace the lines. Your fuel filter and dampers (black disks in line) are on the supply line. The fuel pressure regulator is on the return line. The smallest line without fuel clamps is the vapor line.
