Will it be ready for the Elandrun this year? So it can be seen in the wild :D
Well now i got pics made with my Iphone5 maybe that will look better? i alway used to use my camera but my macbook does not have a cardreader, stupid mac stuff.. why do i buy that crap anyway?

No this car will deff not be ready for the elandrun, its just a project i like to work on if all my other projects are boring me so this will be the slowest off them all

In other news played around with the 242 a little ran into a issue with the crossmember, i only have the BW55 crossmember and some other stuff here and non seem to work right now.. I'm going to have to look into the crossmembers on 240s for AW71 boxes




I think this is the BW55 one and it seemed that bolting it direclty to the box might work all the holes on the box lined up but to the car , not so much




Then i started to work on the intake manifold, bought it off a member adjusted for LPG but i ended uo getting a complete empty intake so bolting all the crap over from some random manifold i had, directly swapped the injectors to 960 injectors.. they deliver a little less fuel but wont need resitorpacks, since i am using a N/A wiring loom it would be one less thing to do and considering it will mostly run on LPG i dont see a problem with that





Also got the powersteering rack on the car now, i did get all the bolts and spacers in the box so thats good, I do see that the original 240 pump goes on the alternator side of the B230FK. I might want to swap over a pump from a 740.. is that bolt on to the steertingrack or would it require new hoses etc?

Ha! hope mine will do that too, nice startup! You used all 940 parts there? you have more pics of how you handled piping, lines etc?

I will ask you for the settings of the STAG for sure!

it looks cool but definitely needs some tv screens and a healthy lowering.

Last week also bought a AW71 shifter and linkache for a 240. Rare find so pretty happy to save some fabrication time on that.

installed the linkage, took me a while to figure it all out as i bought the shifter and linkage in a box and the AW71 came from my old 740. Apparently there is some stuff on the box that does not fit in the 242. Made a few pictures if people are interested.

I still not sure if its all connected up because when the selector in in "D" its easy to move the "shifter" to another gear, apposed to my S90 shifter its locked..

Hi Freaks
Iḿ new here, and have read that you convert your car to LPG.
I can offer you a helping hand on your conversion too.
Please keep in mind that the best results for correct timing for the injectors is you have to look for. So the right choice in size and kind helps a lot! Your goal is good idling and sufficient fuel for heavy load under boost. I highly recommended Hana Injectors who are a direct copy from the legendare Keihin injectors but for the half price. vertically montage for the Injectors with short tubes to the inlet manifold all the same lenth is necessary. The keihin Injectors have a spec map in the AC Software who you can use to match the exact characeristics of the injectors --> give a good result!

and 8mm Multivalve for good flow and 8mm piping to the vaporizer.

With the car on the driveway getting things done is much easier for me now.
Also i have less space so things need to find a way on the car ASAP

installed the exhaust:




took out the sound deading on the roof, it was warm so came off easy and it got moist under there so need to do a little rust prevention later on



found out that in transport the headliner fell on the ebrake and made a nice space in the fabric, time to find a replacement




Also wanted to install the driveaxle i bought 2 years ago but never unboxed, turns out its a 940 axle...

Probably pictures nobody is waiting for it but i am too happy with it so deal with it

I ask the same question. Even not a boat trip away, a trailer session only.
I'm addicted to the 2 doors. A 142 I own already, a 780 is way to expensive and a 742 won't exist. Have a nice weekend, regards, Kay
