Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

That looks superb! Good suggestion on the foot trays, they keep the carpets nice and clean and fit nicely. It'd look pretty sweet on some Leo's if you happen to find some

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

Sounds good! I have a similarly aged GLT too and considering putting the original wheels back on, simply as you don't see many like that anymore :) The gasket kit comes with decent instructions, I'd personally use a bit of blue hylomar with the kit too for belts and braces. I had a 360 15 years ago ...

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

I believe this will be the car you're referring to? http://www.volvo300mania.com/uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16143 Looks great if it's still in that condition! Well worthy of a little project. You can still buy genuine cambelts so I'd recommend doing that, they're only about £10-12. pettaw1 on YouT...

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

That car was for sale here a few years back, it looked very nice - so best of luck with it! I'd try and keep the mods sympathetic, the 3 doors are very rare. How about some earlier style 'Leo' GLT wheels? Same tyre size that way and a nicer design! The injection cars are quite lumpy from cold start,...

Re: 1981 Green 345 in Ely

Yeah that does seem a bit inconsistent, it'd certainly make sense for them to be blanked off on manual cars but we had two manual '81 MY 345 GL's at the same time, one was blanked and the other had the cutouts sm25

Re: New to V3M but not to Volvo's

Hi Tracey, hope you managed to find one - I spoke to you on the Volvo Owners Club forum. Did you ever get a chance to look at the brown one on Facebook?

Re: '85 360 GLS

For anyone still following my glacial progress on this.... I've removed the old tank and prepped a spare tank ready to go back in, just waiting on a couple of deliveries of fuel hoses and a diff gasket kit from Mac. Thought it prudent to replace the diff gasket, bolts, oil and gearbox oil while the ...

Re: Why does nobody report spam messages?

We're sort of fire fighting at the moment, as ultimately the forum software requires an upgrade to protect against a new exploit that these bots are taking advantage of. Aymat is a busy chap with a young family but he's said he should be able to get this done within the next week.

Re: 360 turbo saloon tidy up

Looking good Tony! Surprised you didn't feel much difference with a cam swap, the 'T' cam felt as flat as a pancake above 5000rpm in a 940 I once owned.

Great work on the brake conversion, they're a much more appropriate size for the amount of power you're running now!

Re: Duchess The Volvo 340 CVT

Not so sure on the chrome gutter trim when the rest of the car has black trim but it's looking good. I reckon it needs some 360 style thicker side trims to match up with the bumper inserts.
