    "lockable" EBC idea? Or is there such a thing already?

    Okay, I'm sure someone smarter then me has already thought of this, but I haven't been able to find much on the interwebs so far. Here's my idea: On my +t'd 240 I currently have a 15g and a MBC set to 13psi and I love it, its plenty fast and fun for me, but I don't really like the idea of...

    Another No-start issue ('86 245 +t w/EZK)

    1986 245 +t and has EZK conversion. Okay, about a week and a half ago my wagon quit on me and hasn't run since. It happened less then a 1/4 mile from my house on the first trip of the day. Just died and wouldn't restart. Bumper-pushed it home with the wife's van and started trying to figure out...

    240 Downpipe question

    Hi guys! I have a friend that is giving me several 3" stainless mandrel bends to use to make a 3" downpipe for my 240 +t. In addition to the freebie bends I've also purchased a stainless o2 sensor bung. What I need to know is what to do about the flange. We will be using a reclocked 15g from...

    240 Routing wires along the valve cover

    Hey guys! I doubt I'm the first person to have thought of this, but shellshock thought I should post a pic of how I ran my new Accell wires on my 240. Since they were a universal set that I could cut to any length I decided I didn't want to do the usual "over the valve cover" routing with them...

    240 3 "Bad" alternators in 5 months, what gives?

    Okay, so I bought this 245GL with a "bad" alternator and a dead battery. The battery was replaced with a decent used one and the alternator was replaced with a junkyard pull. These both sufficed for several months. A month ago, the car wouldn't start. The battery was dead and the alternator...

    240 erratic cruse control

    86 Volvo 240GL My cruise control will work absolutely perfectly about 30% of the time, but the rest of the time it will not work at all. By not working I mean both that it will not do anything at all when I press "set" (And sometimes, when it is set and I'm cruising it will just quit.) At...

    Why won't my distributor move?

    86 245GL - I'm trying to adjust my timing (as it appears to be currently sitting somewhere around 8 BTDC). Anyway, I've loosened the distributor nut ridiculously loose (to the point that I could unscrew it by hand) but the distributor still won't budge a millimeter. I've tried dousing the base...

    Tag light wires broken at liftgate

    Tag light wires broken at hatchback hinge First night out driving the 86 245 and I noticed neither tag light was working. The bulbs looked pretty ugly, so I replaced them but still nogo. After further inspection I noticed the wires are broken at the hatchback hinge. Obviously a butt connector...

    Flyboy's '86 245GL BATM-wannabe +t project

    Today I took delivery of my first Volvo ever, an 86 245GL. Here's the only pics I was able to snap today before my camera batteries died: What's on the drawing board? Well, +t, of course. However, my budget is low, so it will be mostly "junkyard tech". Whatever OE Volvo parts I can pull...
