Re: volvo 340 1.9 turbo diesel

Hello everyone. Any news on the spec questions as above regarding the clutch for this D19 340? I guess no one else is seeing this common oil leak on the B172 and B18 families? Every B18 family engine I've seen has an oil leak in the area of the auxilliary shaft. Leak is higher than the sump but also...

Re: b14 renovation

Hello Good luck with the project! The Volvo tool for turning over the B14s with the head off is basically some large washers and bolts the size of head bolts (but shorter). I used such a "tool" when doing the headgasket on a friends B14. We also left them in place whilst the head was repaired (cross...

Re: volvo 340 1.9 turbo diesel

What clutch combination did you use as the 400 series clutches have different number of splines on the friction plate than the B172. D19 clutch is also has a stronger pressure plate than the petrol 400s. I believe though the splines are the same number on the JC5 (D19 400 gearbox) as the petrol vari...

Re: volvo 340 1.9 turbo diesel

Super! Dya have any pics? I was tempted to make a diesel 480 but was put off by the fact the 440 petrols and diesels have such different mounts. If I'd have known what Adam has confirmed re engine mounts.... :) Dya have any pics of the project so far? What you using for a clutch as the JC5 g/box in ...

Re: volvo 340 1.9 turbo diesel

Hmm seems a lot of work to have completely changed the mounts (hence bodyshell) but its very interesting re what Adam says that the D19 having the ability to use the B18/B172 mounts.

A D19 340 would be great!

Re: volvo 340 1.9 turbo diesel

interesting... as it would make quite a fun 340. But....if the block has the possibility to be mounted the same way as the B18 petrol family, how come the 400 TDs have the engine held via a mount over the cambelt area to the upper drivers side inner wing I wonder?

Re: volvo 340 1.9 turbo diesel

Hello I've thought about this project too as the 1.9 turbo is quite a fun engine, esp in 2nd and above. The engine mounts for the 440 TD are quite different from the petrol variants, so much so the diesel 400s have a different bodyshell to the petrol models. The engine hangs on one mount over the ca...

Re: intermittant headlights

Hi Chris

thanks for the super info. I can't download the PDF at the moment but will try later.

Just to confirm, is it corrosion inside this connector which causes the problem?

cheers

Shimon
