Hi everyone have just joined the forum and live in Wa. I have a fl7 Volvo 1988 and tried to tilt the cab today (first time since buying it) I opened the front up and turned the knob inside passenger door and started jacking gets quarter way and jams up worked out that the cab tilts until it hits the rubber bush that I think is part of suspension cab , if I let it down it lifts off it but pump up and hits the rubber bush and that’s it, I don’t want to try forced the pump and don’t no how to get round it any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Commi, Welcome to the forum. We have several members in WA and a few Volvo owners as well. Hopefully some of them will give you helpful information. I know nothing about Volvos but yours looks very handy with the crane behind the cab.

I have heard that Volvo is Latin for "I roll."

I am not very good with computers but several people on here have said you have to click "Insert" after putting up your photos.

Regards, Morris.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Not familiar with that model but it looks like the F10/12 (but not same) which has a knee type action for the front suspension point. Bushes do let go which then upsets alignment of other parts. You might need to lever up a sagging pivot point to get it to hinge properly. Good Volvo parts dealer will email you a page from the parts book so that you can identify the parts that you need. Have the VIN number handy when you call them. Also not unusual for the cab shocks to need replacing. Also check that the ram reservoir has enough oil in it.
FL7 ran from 1986 to 1999 with several engine and transmission changes in that time.
