Re: 360 GLT parts

Hi Tony,

You should be able to source a rear spoiler easy enough - they are not GLT specific, the brakes are also the same. If you're on Facebook you might want to check out the Volvo 300 Mania facebook group as there are often owners breaking cars there.

Re: Creaking noise while turning left

Haha, nicely done on the exhaust fitment - certainly makes it look more 'stock' with the piddly standard exit. I suspect you might struggle with traction on the original wheels but low grip can be fun :D

Fingers crossed on the wheel bearing, simple fix if it turns out to be that!

Re: Creaking noise while turning left

That's certainly a bit of a sleeper, looks like a stock 340! :D I was about to say the rear box is looking a little low. It also looks like a standard 340 backbox which isn't going to be doing you any performance favours. It could be the rear boot seal causing water ingress too, but for resealing th...

Re: Creaking noise while turning left

Ah, strange - on the Classic Swede website they say they are fitted with grease nipples, perhaps there are two versions?! Unfortunately there isn't much of an alternative for top mounts unless you happen to get a decent used set, but they are a weak point with no OEM style replacement as yet. :( Unl...

Re: Creaking noise while turning left

Sounds like a cool car! Ordinarily I'd have said top mounts as they are a known weak point on the 300 series, particularly with the heavier engine in the redblock cars. I believe the classic swede top mounts have a grease nipple for maintenance - worth a shot? Other suggestion I may have is engine m...

Re: Battery connections queries

I can check when I'm nearer my GLT but that might not be for a couple of days, but some of those connections look to be non-factory additions, perhaps as you say for an alarm/audio equipment. Don't worry about the aux fuse box, UK market B200E GLT's do not have an oxygen sensor, but in other markets...

Re: 360 carby fuel supply

One way of doing it! 17g sounds too heavy? It should be 7g I think?

Re: Tyre Choice...?

Always been impressed with the Uniroyal tyres I've had on various cars, doubt you'll go wrong with any of the options you suggested though - tyre tech has come a long way in 30 years :)

Re: Volvo 360 GLT from Spain

That's a great find! Assume it must be originally fitted to an RSX2 360? They're not red normally :D

Re: suspension upgrade

Possible that they're acceptable for road use but not for track? Best bet is to try some Classic Swede (Gaz) adjustable shock absorbers.

Re: Urgent opinions required: Diff cover plates

Ah yes, if you own a 300 it's never long until you speak to the infamous Mac, his gasket set is top quality. I've had a few due to the number of 300's I've bought in the past :lol:
