'83 340DL 5-door

Hi folks, Posted over on the newbie thread but thought it best to show face here too... since I posted there though, the long road back to road worthiness is creeping closer! Bit of background; new 17.3.83, owned by some people (no logbook yet) then nosed into a lockup in January 1997 and left to di...

Re: Newbie from Glasgow

Ah I posted up on your thread on AS. I thought it might be running by now? ;) :lol: Not yet! Had a busy week moving my brother in law up from Exeter so I've only managed to spend a couple of hours or so on it so far; not sure how far I'll get as my best mate of many years passed away aged 29 on Sat...

Re: Newbie from Glasgow

There's nothing special about that HT lead. I'll measure Abby's as your car is a points one isn't it? (Coil by rad?) That's the "continuous development" conundrum where parts change all the time. Aftermarket catalogues can't keep up with it and are frequently wrong. Coils have moved all over the pl...

Re: '83 340 1.4 non-running issues

One condenser. Bit far away to have a gander (20 miles from Dublin :lol: ), but like I said, I'm in town every now and then. I'll dig out the numbers. Distributor of a Ducellier variety? (They did second source stuff (Delco), PM me a chassis number or better still, get a big photo of the numbers on...

'83 340 1.4 non-running issues

Hi folks, My little 340DL is now at my place of work where I have access to the workshop, which is good. Unfortunately the little sod still won't talk to me. Any ideas on the following? 1: No spark at the points and a possible condensor issue - any idea on sources which won't be a pisstake of part s...

Re: Breaking 1.4 DL

Confusing matters, asked for some stuff over on the beige... is the radiator watertight? Mine is haemorraging water at a terrifying rate. No hassles in coming through to get it.

Re: Newbie from Glasgow

Thanks for the welcome guys! Hello and welcome Andy. sm4 Unfortunately my white one got a bit bent, but it'll be back again soon. In the meantime I'll have to sort out my BX when I'm over your direction probably around Christmas. If you're not fussed about originality, would you say no to some decen...

Newbie from Glasgow

Hi folks, Another newbie here from just outside Glasgow; done Volvos more or less since I started driving and my eighth one arrived last week; a 5-door 1983 340GL 1.4 manual. It's a bit scabby but initial inspection reveals three bits of rust which are upsetting - one hole at the base of the offside...
