Re: Volvo 343 Black Beauty '78

Wicked work - very nice looking car.

I've rotated a couple of you photos by 90 degrees to maximise their awesomeness...

Re: VOC/V3M at Beaulieu - 6th (and 5th) October 2019

Bah humbug, the red one died on its way to the MOT a couple of weeks ago and has been at the garage ever since, sorry! It passed the MOT but they said its lethal due to the stalling problem which that they can't fix. They've put new floats in the carb and have moved on to the coil - I've given them ...

Re: Volvo Key Blank required

Funny thing is I went to the local hardware shop and asked if they could cut my key. They actually had the blank (and 3 spares) so cut it there and then for £6. It works, too. Londinium innit.

Re: 360 Tinted Windscreen Spare

There was a thread on here about a year or two ago saying that tinted windscreens were NLA so if you have one that works, I would try to make use of it as long as poss. Clear screens are, or were, less of a prob. I'm game for a spare.

Cheers, bogs.

Re: Volvo Key Blank required

Coolio. I will try it. So do keysinthepost have blanks? They just need a part-number (no chance in my case) or a decent piccy and they can find the right blank and cut it?

Re: One owner 1989 340GL 1.7 for sale

Tried to do the same this year but there's a problem with the carb so I took the old Rover insteaders.

Re: Leather seats set

Are these really 340 seats? They look more like S40 ones?

Re: Needing a new solex carb for my 1.7 340

Hello, just so happens I'm having some carb issues of my own. The best thing is to send a private message to a member called "mac" since he refurbishes Solex carbs for the 300 series. If you send him your phone number, he always calls back. Indeed I spoke to him myself only a day or two ago...

Re: Volvo Key Blank required

So far I can see Onderdelen (a good supplier) have them:

https://www.volvo340onderdelen.nl/en/se ... eries.html

but they're more than a bit pricey with the postage!

There's also keysinthepost.com which has good reviews and does individual 340 keys.

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

They are the same sm75

Do drop me a PM with your address and I'll pop them in the post. Funny thing is they're not where I thought they were, so assuming I can still find them I'll wrap them up for sending...
