I am in the process of changing the lower seals
behind the bearing housing. (2 one that holds oil
in the other keeps water
out) I have struggled with this process to a point that I am completely stuck. To pull the bearing housing out you need a sleeve or nut as Volvo
calls it that slips over the shaft and connects to a slide hammer. This sleeve is obsolete and in 6 hours of calls today no one has this piece. Several offered to do the work for me if I shipped it to them but I prefer to do my own work when possible.
That said does anyone know of an acceptable substitute for part 884611? I don't want to mangle the shaft. If I had some idea I'd have a machine shop make one. It just seems silly to be stumped by a $30 part.
