Re: Creaking noise while turning left

The red block weight is better with 360 struts, camber is different.

Re: Brake Hoses

The braided hose kits also come with 4, they just don't know, someone made a mistake once and everyone copies it.
I have a spare rear braided hose if you want it, never used, a few years old HEL.

Re: Sluggish Starting after a run

A quick check is to pull the vaccum pipe off and check for fuel on the outside of the system, by smell or drips. Other checks are to open the fuel supply side and check for pressure (carefully) after say 5 mins.

Think I saw an 360 FPR on ebay the other day.

Re: Sluggish Starting after a run

It is likely you have a problem with the FPR (fuel pressure regulator). This should maintain pressure in the rail after shut off for about 30mins. If its not working and the pressure drops you will get vapour in the rail from the hot engine pushing the fuel back into the tank. If you can check the f...

Re: Creaking noise while turning left

Nice sleeper, did you keep the 340 struts?

For this noise, exhaust is usually the culpret for me, touches the chassis rail. It goes between the chassis and steering column.

Re: Volvo 340 1.7 splutters and cuts out

There is a review/summary on here somewhere for the ignition modules. Mainly differing by advance. It would best to keep the same one.

Good trouble shooting!

Re: Brake Upgrades

just for the record the brake pads I'm using for the Mercedes brakes are: EBC DP51170NDX Blue stuff NDX £68+vat+delivery No problems with cold bite, the system can't quite tolerate max braking on this track for too long, but its massively better and there is just a bit of high rate pad use (you can ...

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

Emissions no, but do check fuel pressure, leaky cold start injector. Servicing is fine, but do thry to diagnose rather than replace random parts.

Crank oil seal is easy enough, I drilled it and put in self tappers to remove. But if its good again just leave it.

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

Reb blocks can be a bit lumpy, not sure the reason, it isn't like a BMW or Japanese car. That said some run like clockwork. Injector seals I have never replaced and I've owned alot of cars with the same design, this is a low pressure NA system self sealing. The engine can manage a small leak, but do...
