Hello Okta.
Just noticed your 360 does not have a rev counter. I thought all 360s had one.
Cheers Mark.

Mark, no bidet or headlamp wipers either. Must be poverty-spec edition.

Ride-on, thank you. I'm not sure understand 100%: "Use a looping brake circuit to allow fluid circulation via the bleed valve. Pumps and heat sinks maybe available." Can you please explain it a bit for me? :wink:

Hello Gabor, :D I have sent a PM to you on FB - have you received it?
I did a quick search on brake fluid cooling and it seems these things are called recirculators.

Hey Mark, you are right: this one is a really basic 360. :) It was bought in Austria by a Hungarian lady - you know in that time we had only the Eastern block cars only here (Lada, Dacia, Wartburg, Trabant, Skoda, etc.) and some Renaults. So I believe it was a really big deal to get a Volvo from the imperialist side of the world :) and probably the biggest extra of this car was not to be one from the socialist part. :wink: Full basic edition. :D

Hi Okta.
Your car will be wired up for one. It is just a mater of taking out the
clock and replacing it with a rev counter. It is a very easy upgrade.
If you need headlight motors, i have some spare.
Cheers Mark.
