Day 1 of Volvo resurrection

The carb is off, so I can drive all the way out to chilliwack and drop it off to be rebuilt. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I can’t turn the engine. I suppose it’s not surprising that sitting for 5 years is enough for an engine to seize. Since I forgot a funnel, I couldn’t put any oil in the cylinders, so I’ll be going back to the car tomorrow with oil and a funnel, and hopefully after letting that sit in there for a while, I’ll be able to turn it. Otherwise it’ll be a very quick end to this idea.
