Re: American interested in a 360

I'd be looking to import one from Europe if I were you, yes you will pay more and it will probably need rust repairs but at least it will be left hand drive.

Re: Front suspension very soft / bit low

If you want to firm it up then look in to some new dampers and 1" lowering springs and blocks.

Re: Volvo 340 1.7 splutters and cuts out

Have you checked for vacuum leaks on the engine? Spray wd40 around it and see what happens.

Re: 360glt B230f swap help needed

I would cure the air leak first then see what it does, amazing how much an air leak can affect running.

What colour is the smoke?

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: Gearbox and diff oil

Kroon do ATF suffix A, I got mine off of frost. They then ran out of stock so I didn't have enough so I got more off of eBay from Germany. I now have about 5 litres spare haha.

Re: Greetings from Serbia

Welcome to the forum, nice looking 360. I haven't seen one with that interior before only on 340's.

Sadly this forum seems to have died due to facebook so you would probably be better off joining the 300 mania Facebook group.

The two different numbers could be for left and right hand drive possibly.

Re: 1986 360 GLEi SE restoration and turboing

Thanks Steve, although your GLS paint is immaculate compared to mine but then I have built the car to be used so I'm not too bothered about it.

B230fk

Hi all

I'm breaking a 1997 940 estate, it has a B230FK engine (late engine so squirter block and 13mm rods) on 204k miles.

It runs very well, I will take a video of it running.

Everything is available.

Engine is £375 collected from Worcester, includes inlet manifold, exhaust manifold and turbo.

Re: 1986 360 GLEi SE restoration and turboing

Well I have finished the rebuild race, I have got to take it apart again to fit my B230ET eventually, only been sat in the garage for 4 years! As for the grille... keep dreaming :lol: If the grille on the 760 is an egg crate grille I will buy it for my 940. Thanks Bog :) Just realised I haven't fitt...
