Re: HORN NOT WORKING?

Probably the ground - seriously, buy a airhorn and swap it in. You'll need to fit a relay but it's pretty straight forward. Stebel make good ones and for 20 quid you'll be able to scare the shit out of anyone who does something stupid in front of you.

Re: She wont start!!!

Sorry your problem didn't have the easy fix we were all banging on about.

Did you have a look at fuel filters for the 940? Should still be parts available. Even if it's different I'm sure it could be adapted with liberal application of jubilee clips and the like.

Re: Brakes

original parts v300 brakes will scare the shit out of you under breaking when in good condition (ie face against windshield moments). Must be something amiss with mine then, i've never really been able to lock them up well, and with new grooved discs, pads and fluid they are still pretty shite! The...

Re: Brakes

Agreed, stock brakes will lock all 4 wheels at any given speed - the limiting factor is traction. Give your brakes a good service - then decide whether you still need upgrades. Having said that Adam (340GLT), will do a good custom brake work for a very reasonable fee. http://www.volvo300mania.com/fo...

Re: She wont start!!!

Aye it's a GLT. I'd put a fair bet on the fuse then ;) I had these symptoms too - and it was the fuse in the auxiliary box behind the battery. It hadn't actually blown, just kind of disintegrated after 25 years so was giving an intermittent circuit. Paperclip got me home until i could fit a fuse.

Re: cutting out on roundabouts

All my carb cars have done this, usually a symptom of fitting good tyres + good suspension. You want injection. Not if you get the float heights sorted! My 1.7 coped on slicks on runways fine, but only if I'd sorted the carb out (and in the end the bloody thing started to wander, so it was a 6month...

Glad you like it :D

Was sad to see it drive away, but at least I didn't cry like the guy I bought it off 4 years back!

Re: Volvo 360 GLT 3 Door Mk2 in dark red <BACK UP FOR SALE £600>

Hasn't got PAS and doesn't need PAS. Steering is real light - helps to have the fronts pumped up to 35psi. Great feedback on fast road driving. This is a RWD, manual everything car - The only thing lacking from stock is an extra 75bhp, but this can be had with a little red block fettling, then you h...
