Anyone have the value of the ballast pack for the greenie top injectors that were used in the grandmapa series 7/9's. I am running some on my b23f , cuz the original yeller caps are all bad.. car sat for 10 years and
the fuel turned into some nasty goo. No pick in pulls in S/W colorado but...
The right bushing on my manual cam rack has crumbled apart - and well now there is a mega ton of play, due to lack of bushing dealie whopper, and oilages spilt out and such on the ol' bugger.
I would like to just rebuild the rack myself, Are there any kind, gentle folks out there who might be...
Replaced timing belt. Kjet bull**** is working, but won't fire up. Belt is 100% timed. So no lame questions asking if I am incompetant and didn't do the timing belt replacement right.
Question, B cam KJet 398 head , flat top piston B23F mated to all this mess.. If the ****iing belt breaks will...
So, this gorgeous cosmetic shape Regina french madness 745 is about to do me in. Literally.
It has been sitting the better part of last month with failed french crap electronics. Got more replacement crap french electronics that work, by some haphazard miracle. Car is running once again under...
1989 745GL. Regina oddball car. Red interior. Been catching up maintenance on it. My General Grabber AT/2's finally came in today so mounted them and put them on.

Pretty exciting I...
Been working on a formerly nice 1979 527,000 k mile 244 over the winter.
Just got done buffing it out last week.. Here is how it looked about 1 hour ago.
And now how it looks :
Entire rear quarter panel wiped out. My fault. I was dehydrated from being up in the...
The oil feed line gasket is leaking on my 760.
Need one pronto, what would be a good material to make out of scratch with? I can't find any on the IPD Website, tried Rockauto. Groton has 'em but that would be 5-7 days away from me and I am not in the mood of walking that long.
Here is my 1984 245DL, in a beautiful midnight brown color with the complimentary , and rather tasteful tan interior.
It offers great stance:
Check out the nice euro turn signal lense assembly!
The interior equally welcoming:
Has a very nice custom exhaust with some minor modification...
Put ol' Brown to work today.
1994 940T , no more! Bye bye.
This is how the engine bay of any 7/9 series should look:
And of course the proper home for a 7/9 series:
Rock on, ol' brown you shall be tugging more and more as time goes on.
I have a freshly rebuilt 1983/84 LH2.0 B23F 160 head here with a slutted camshaft with the below inscription on it :

What the hell is this? Some mega asteroid race cam? Or the most tame emissions cam...
Some of you may recognize this black 244Ti. I picked it up today, it needs alot of stuff but oh well. Here it is.
Shown featured pulling it is my 1984 245 DL that sat in the field (deja vu) since 2000 or so and I forced back into life the last few weeks:
The 244Ti had a bad turbro-charger...
Woke up to some snow this morning.. So decided I'd test drive the 242 in it.
Leaving Mancos, CO towards Durango CO..
To arrive to this :
A 1975 245 which has been sitting up here since the early 1990s, somewhere above Hesperus Colorado and between the New Mexico state line. I've...
I'm preparing to rebuild an injection pump, or mainly reseal it.
Anyone know offhand the specs of the front seal? (driven from camshaft). 20mm? Or 17mm? That's where mine is leaking at .. But can't find the spec on that single item there.
And why I bought another Volvo diesel, I dunno...
My 1992 245, isn't much to look at, clearcoat on roof , hood is gone. Has a few goodies on it. Did alot of work to it, raised suspension up slightly, bushings, HD's, rear HD springs, AW71 with accumulator mod.. E-codes, and IPD goodies.
The original B230F was a worn out hunk of junk, so it...

Does anyone sell thse parts anymore, or am I going to have to spend a ****load of money to get the basic parts to do a timing belt from like 300 different vendors?
Any diesel people here?

*Outer Tie Rod Ends Replaced
*Passsenger Side Brake Rotor...
Figured I'd share some pics of my '76 , the wagon that replaced my previous '79. Got it off Craigslist a few months back.. A low mile 245 but needing ALOT of stuff done..
Being that I really enjoyed green wagon #2, I decided to do a very simular treatment to the '76, but gave it a bit more of...

Any input back would be greatly appreciated.
