Default Best Options for Oil Filter Relocation Kit? (240 B230+t)

Hey guys,

My father has a difficult time changing the oil on his 240+t and is looking for options on relocating the oil filter-- the 740t arm does not allow for the oil filter to easily be removed between the exhaust and the firewall. We want something that is OEM quality.

What are his options? Any good kits available? Individual components we could piece together? He's located in Oregon, so even the name of a reputed industrial hydraulic shop or Volvo shop that could perform this procedure would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

You can piece together a nice kit using parts from Canton Racing

I had to find the project thread where I'd seen it before:

I've only used the cheap kits from places like Summit

Get a short kit and keep it where it belongs.

Errybody knows the 740 arm & cooler stuff doesn't really fit on a 240....

I love the short kit in theory, but the issue we've found with that particular setup is that the cooler sandwich plate doesn't clear the block and alternator on our specific vehicle. We took it to a shop and had the arm with hydraulic lines like yours installed and everything works great except the oil filter is a bit hard for my dad to remove.

If my imagination is correct, I can put an oil filter relocation sandwich plate on the 7 series oil cooler arm and run hydraulic line to a remote kit and remedy all the issues we're having.

Thanks for the link, Towery. I'll poke around and see what I can piece together.

Shouldn't be a problem with a Denso ALternator.

You can use a regular old Perma-Cool relocation kit. Spin the "hat" on to the filter arm where the filter would normally go, then you run the hoses to the filter bracket (and your new, larger oil filter) mounted pretty much anywhere you want. No need for the $79 Canton bits. I had actually went that route first, then returned the Canton piece when I realized I could do it for less.

...that's everything you need.

Yeah, absolutely. Had no issues with a Denso on my vehicle. Unfortunately my dad already paid for the installation of a 740t oil cooler on his wagon since I'm not located close enough for the work so I'm trying to find a solution that doesn't involve spending money to redo the oil system again if we can get away with it. When he's down I'll swap on one of my Densos and see about righting the setup. You know I'm one for KISS when I can

850wagont5, I just forwarded that to my dad. Thanks!
