Re: Faulty propshaft, clutch or gears?

Hello, I think the propshaft is unique to the 340 and is very hard to find nowadays. I don't have much experience of propshaft problems, thankfully, so sorry I can't be more helpful in diagnosing the problem.

Re: Renix testing for functionality possible?

I guess you could test your theory about the renix by making sure it is dry and filling in the cracks with fresh sealant. Then try it on the car and see if it is better at cold starts. Can you get a spare one? They are pretty interchangeable.

Re: Volvo 343 in May issue of Practical Classics

Excellent work. You don't (or certainly didn't) see much about the 300 series in those magazines.

Re: New to V3M but not to Volvo's

Hello, 2 and a half grand for an 83 car is a lot of money so it would have to be very good - a top-notch car would certainly be worth that sort of amount but you would want to take a classic car buff with you before spending that sort of money. Any horrors will be well out of sight so if you can get...

Re: Renix testing for functionality possible?

The renix is very reliable and I am not sure you can check it other than looking for a regular spark. It could also be worth cleaning the flywheel sensor and testing the idle solenoid on the carburettor (just pull off the wire and it should click every time you reconnect it with the ignition on). Yo...

Re: Ignition or fuel issue, not sure.

I had similar trouble with a 1.4 and it was due to the idle solenoid on the carb. If you disconnect it, then put the ignition on and touch the connector back onto the solenoid again it should click absolutely every time. If it doesn't then you need a new one. I managed to get one from a carby specia...
