People in Finland

I've not been around in a while.....Since I've not been with my car!

I remember some members being in Finland....well, I'm moving to Tampere in May...

Perhaps I'll get a RHD 360?

Can the Finnish members please raise their hands!

Thanks

Re: Free To Collect - 89' 340 - but there is a catch.....

Heya,

How soon does it need to go? I'm hopefully moving to Portugal in September/November, but I presume you want to shift it before then!

Re: Front disc upgrade

Heya, Not been around here for a while.... AFAIK there's no EASY upgrade for the front - I required a bit of head scratching to get vented disks on there. It's 'simply' just a case of fitting the disks, choosing a caliper that will work with the disks, and making an adaptor which will allow the cali...

Re: Where to go for old parts?

Hi Diana, Welcome to the forum. McPherson Strut is the front suspension strut. It's not a 'Brand' of strut, but more a 'type' of strut. You will have to use Volvo struts. All the parts can be sourced from here(the parts wanted section) a breaker's yard (ring some up from the Yellow pages). I dunno w...

Re: F7P engine

I might be interested in the gaskets etc as my engine currently needs a rebuild...I'm in Germany at the moment, but if you can hang on a couple of weeks i'm back in the UK on the 25th.

Volvo 1.4 ENGINE great condition, 35k

The old engine from my 340 has come out and is taking up space in Adam (340GLT) garage. It's in absolutely top condition as far as I'm aware as it's from a car that's only covered 35000 miles. I want about £80 for it, and it's worth that all day long. It is however at Adam's taking up space, so the ...

Re: My Volvo 340GL Modding Thread

Hey, Well it handles better now. They're either 190lb/in or 220lb/in springs, I forget. It's pretty easy to fit the springs. Just as easy to fit as any other spring! got some 40w oil in the struts too. Springs cost me £20, so I can live with the lack of drop! Overall the car's pretty damn stiff now!...

My Volvo 340GL Modding Thread

Decided it's time to put all the post about my car together into one place. It's getting to the state I'd like it to be in so I'm starting this thread detailing its progress to date. I think there's another one on here somewhere, but I can't find it...... Here's the car pretty much as I bought it in...
