But honestly, the driver seal on the C900 leaked quite often as well and since the transmission had to come out for a rebuilt now and then, those seals got replaced or when the inner driver was worn out, the seals got replaced.
Just for info.
I had a 82 Mazda 929 stickshift and with carb, points and condenser back in Sweden. It was really hard to start on and off for the longest time and I tried with hooking several batteries up to it so that it turned over very fast and it would not start.
When I push started it, it took like 2 piston strokes and it fired right up. After awhile I got pretty good at pushing it backwards since that was easier and pop it into reverse to start it.
I finally caved in and bought a starter on a hunch and the starting problem was gone with that. I couldn't believe that even though the starter cranked over just fine, it for some reasons stole enough juice to kill something with the ignition system.
And nowadays we also have plenty of Volvo stories with long cranking due to painted surface on transmission bell housing or missing bolts in bell housing disturbing/creating some kind magnetic shield and messing around with the CKP sensor that sits on top of bell housing.
