Re: 360 driveshaft

I believe 1.4, 1.7 and 2.0 carb driveshafts are the same - only difference is the injected 2.0's, your GLT will have different driveshafts and I think different CV joints too

Re: 1986 360 GLEi SE restoration and turboing

Great that it's back on the road... sort of!

The sender in my GLS tank was rusty and stopped the gauge working too, the GLT one I believe is different so don't butcher the nice GL for it :lol:

Nice to see one in the 'wild'! Haven't seen one myself in normal use for 3-5 years around here.

Re: 2021 300 Goals ?

Same here Dave! It can't come soon enough - hardly used the GLT last year, will hopefully use it as the 'main' car this year restrictions permitting.

Re: 2021 300 Goals ?

Swap the diff on my GLS, daily both the GLT and GLS during the nice weather... at this rate just for weekly shopping trips! Planned for freshening up the suspension on the GLT at some point also but it's not all that necessary, and I know I'll get carried away and want to remove the subframe and arm...

Re: Shock absordes

Your best bet is the Gaz adjustables that Classic Swede sells, none of the original aftermarket suppliers sell gas ones anymore, only oil filled, sadly.

Re: 360 carby fuel supply

Good news! Definitely worth fitting new clips to that fuel tank hose, I fitted new stainless ones when I had my tank out - the originals do like to disintegrate!

Re: Baffling fuel problem.

Sounds bloody frustrating, cars hate being sat though - is the pump/filter definitely free of gunked up fuel each time?

Re: Center caps "V" for alloy wheels

No problem, a member on the V3M Facebook group has received a set for a GLT he is restoring and the quality looked superb

It'd certainly work, some old Peugeot diesels used to have them from the factory!!

Re: 360 carby fuel supply

I've gone through the whole fuel system on mine while replacing the tank, so all flexible pipework is new, carb has new gaskets, there are no leaks from what I can see - so it's a bit annoying. Wonder if it's a modern fuel thing? The only filter in the tank is a gauze on the end of the sender unit's...

Re: 360 carby fuel supply

I had this issue in the summer with my GLS if left for a couple of weeks, the fuel was evaporating from the float chamber. There aren't any leaks and the hoses are all new so I'm not sure why. It's been years since I have had a carbed car so not sure if it's normal. The mechanical pump obviously can...
