  1. Yorks run their own oil sump that lubricates the piston, if the rings are still good should have minimal oil going into the air lines, there are also mods that can be done to them that reduce it even further. I have never actually used one in an airbagged car but have bought and sold maybe 30-40 of them over the years to minitruckers and offroading people. They are quite cool wee things, can pump like 18CFM at redline and have an electric clutch so can disengage them when not in use.
  2. shit that's cool, we need something that sort of size for our deck. All the ones you can buy are so tiny and flimsy looking
  3. Wish I had gone, would have loved some volvo 164 front panels to graft onto my wagon. SO cheap
  4. Buy it and scrap it and I will buy a bunch of bits off you lol
  5. One of those or an impact driver should undo it
  6. There's a few of us Volvo nutters on here now lol. Anyone have a spare set of front struts or rear spring cups? Or internal panels for the back of a wagon? Lol Mine is a b21 carb with 5 speed. Need to sort the rust out Keen to see more pics of this once you get it up there
  7. Far out, I have tried to buy this car multiple times over the years and always been a day or two late each time. So stoked you have gotten it though, each time I was planning to buy it just to rob the dash, bonnet and front end to swap to my cars I have had at each time. Depending on what is wrong with the gauges there is a guy that sells reprinted circuit boards for them for not toooo much money
  8. That would look lush as
  9. As someone who has 5x108, trust me, you don't want it at all, options for wheels so limited
  10. Nah, just chuck the old one into one of the boot bumcheeks as a spare. I have a spare carb, alternator and starter chilling in mine
  11. I get most of my volvo parts from fcp, skandix or ebay UK
  12. http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.com/wiki/European_Union we used the spanish option. 1 euro per 100mb shit was lush Got it shipped to me before I left then activated it once we got there. a couple of those sims in our iphone 5s's and was perfect
  13. Saw you cruise past by caltex rimutaka Looked freaking sweet
  14. Oooh, I like the look of the palings instead of baseboards, might need to steal that idea as we have shitty broken baseboards as well
  15. wat Never seen a bad stigma towards crossbreed engine conversions here
  16. Random question but is that a crack between EXPORT and OR?
  17. yeah man, same block/engine family as the turbo 240, 740, some 940, factory exhaust manifolds will fit etc but put the turbo in a yuck place. need to drill oil drain etc. rods are weaker than the 2.3 engines AFAIK. Easiest would be to get a whole 2.3 out of another car and swap it over. either run a megasquirt etc or get an LH2.4 out of a later car and wire that all in. Check out http://www.volvo300mania.com/uk/forum/ they will have all the info you want, quite a common swap over there This is wrong, GLT was never turbo, no factory turbo in the 360 series
  18. even has a 1 year warranty so it must be legit
