Re: volvo 300s in scotland?

There's only one V300 worth having in Scotland, and I'm selling it :)

Got MOT, but diff is humming at speed. I'm trying to source a replacement (pre-used) diff, but should get you home to Aberdeen without problem as is.

Revs slightly better with high octane fuel - ignition and timing are setup for 4* so it appreciates a fuel with similar rating. But runs OK on standard 95. I don't worry about the lead lubrication factor.

Re: kyb front dampers

I'l repeat my advice that any new dampers will impress you. I'd bought new front gas shocks for my 360 last year. I got a garage to fit them because I was lazy and busy - they were the wrong shocks, probably 240 ones but I didn't know for sure so they went in the bin. So they bolted in a pair of hyd...

Re: 360 GLT Saloon - reFUSE-ing to work + a new noise!

Check my youtube channel for a 'how to' vid on cambelt change. Cheap as chips to do and well worth the hassle. With your trade card should be able to get torque wrenches from Halfrods assuming they still do them. A lot of special tools were quietly discontinued. Silverline do a decent torque wrench...

NIce car!

Forget all the leery mods - get a new cam belt on there pronto. 12 years is too long and one twang and your nice redblock is scrap. Will also improve throttle response and make it run smoother - that old one will be flapping in the wind.

Re: kyb front dampers

Gas is always best - but believe me, after your old knackered shocks, anything is going to be a vast improvement. I think Chris has KYB gas shocks on one of his 300's.

Okay, get in touch when you know either way. Hole in the front wheel arch is still there - MOT didn't seem to notice it even though I told him about it.

Can't tax it because got no insurance. Will look into temp insurance if you're serious, but you pay for the disc.

Towbar included but not fitted - no ball and no electrics.

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

Okay, thanks - so I need a 3.64 final drive diff which is known to be good, swap for rare parts or cash but preferably the former.

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

Now with 12 months MOT. But the diff is humming. I thought it was a wheel bearing, but the MOT guy took it for a test drive and is pretty sure it's the diff. So - I need a new diff for an '84 360 - anyone know what ratio that would be? Will swap a pair of 360 engine mounts, an ambient temp gauge + s...
