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...

Re: Gold 360 GLS XKW

The awesomeness lives on. Currently awaiting repair panels for mine to get it through the MOT. The poor garage man has been saying "Its getting very rusty now, Mr Cooper" with that familiar ring to it. Have you seen a 440 lately? I've not seen one for a good 2-3 years round here. I see more 340's.

Re: 360 carby fuel supply

First to post on the new-look forum. Some of my recent posts here have gone a bit missing but never mind cos the system is back to square-one with a mechanical fuel pump. I was led into it by the MACster. https://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k163/bogbasic/15516332238801_zpsmeufmgmv.jpg Note no leccy f...
