Check out this emblem I found a picture of online. This one would be an awsome one to recreate.

I have been trying to find a set of those since I bought my car! My plan has now changed and I'm thinking Jurbo badges on the fenders.

I've gotten just about everything I needed to do the M41 swap

So I decided to pull the trigger

I decided to remove the bumper overriders on the front and rear bumpers. I also decided to remove the rear reflectors. I have never liked the reflectors on Amazons. I know they serve a purpose, but it seems like an afterthought, and was poorly executed by Volvo IMO. I will fill the holes from the reflector and spot paint that area.
It gives it a much more "Clean" look. I will not deviate much more than that from the original design of the car.



Also I removed the dealer emblem on the trunk. Unfortunately they drilled holes in the trunk when they installed it. I plan on putting on one of the Amazon emblems from cwdodson88 there to cover the holes. When I paint it I will remove all the emblems off the trunk.

I've been thinking about doing both of those mods to my car. Thanks for sharing the pics, I'm going to do the same!

Yeah I think it's a much cleaner look.

So I got a few things done over the weekend. I'm still waiting on a few parts before I can finish up.

I wire wheeled, painted, and installed the brake and clutch pedals



I also mounted the OD switch and indicator light on the dash. I still need to take the trim ring off the switch and paint the letters.

I am starting to wonder if the clutch I have for the car will work. It's out of a 140 with a cable operated clutch. It is used but it's in very good shape.


According to the green books the pressure plate for the cable and hydraulic are different.


So can I use this clutch or not? I'm not sure if the 140 throw out bearing will work with the 122 clutch fork either.

Yes, you can use the 140 clutch and throw out bearing. The clutches are the same for B18/B20/B21-'78.

I'm getting a little closer. I made the transmission crossmember and got the tranny in. I also got the pedals in and the few other things.

I got everything done but had a small set back...

The transmission was grinding going into 3rd and also popping out of third. Then it got stuck in 4th and wouldn't come out.

I think the junk yard transmission is junk.

Plan B for now is a M40. I have one from my dads 140 when he swapped his M41.

That'll due for the meet. I'll figure out the M41 later.

Sucks cause the OD worked perfect.

They're not hard gearboxes to work on just dismantle it and search the problem.

Got a M40 in for now while I sort out the M41. I really won't need an overdrive for the mountain meet anyway. I just need to get a M40 driveshaft.

I got the M40 driveshaft in last night and drove it to work this morning. The M40 shifts great, and is really tight, just no OD. I really didn't need OD going into work though. All city driving. The M40 and 4:10 rear gear are a nice combo for city driving.

The carbs still need to be tuned. The previous owner said he rebuilt them, but never tuned them. Its seams to be running rich.

I'm still having to double pump the brakes, but its not as bad. I'm going to re-bleed the brakes, and see if that helps.

I decided to just use a old early style fender emblem to cover up dealer emblem holes on the deck lid. I've had a set of these emblems for about 20+ years, that came off of a old parts car I had. I put a lite polish on it, painted the lettering, and had it two sided taped.







I decided to install it at an angle like the old karmann ghias had them. It worked better this way to cover up the holes.



Eventually I will remove all the emblems from the deck lid, when I do the body and paint work.
