Could probably make one of those too I bet. I'm sure someone out there sells the raw material to make them.

I have the unused original filter element inside of the original mesh, but want to save it without using it.

Similar outer mesh should not be to hard to find, but I need to research what is the correct open cell foam to use on the inside?

It would be perfect for driving on all of the gravel roads I have to travel on around here.

I will post photos of it on my 220 Station Wagon thread soon.

Honestly I'm not real sure. This is my first time messing with webers. How can you tell?

Should be a 152 or 152g on the top cover of the carb. 152 = 3 progression holes. 152g = 4 progression holes. Either will do fine I'm sure. I was just expecting to have to start changing out jets to get a smooth tip in, so curious if the 4th hole really makes that much of a diff. Let us know once you get them sync'd.

What do you guys think?
Look up the Enkei wheels that are fairly similar to those. I have a set that will go with the 4 door I'm listing soon, they have a small hump between the spokes that sets them apart from Minilites but they're otherwise pretty similar. I'll try to grab a picture when I have a few minutes.

The K&N filter is not sexy (and will go eventually) but it worked well

I know this might turn some people off, but I'm kicking around the idea of putting airbag suspension on this car. The biggest question I've always had was in regards to shock mounting point on the front control arms. I had heard about guys removing the sway bar and using that mounting point to mount the shock, but I didn't want to not use a sway bar. I found a guy in Malaysia that had done it, and he figured out a simple solution. He just welded a new bracket on the opposite side of the arm to mount the shock.
I think I could improve upon his setup. Here a link to his write up
http://www.caisse.com/classic-1966-amazon-volvo-122s-lowered-on-air-bags-photos-video-and-more/

If I decide to do it I’d like to use one of these e-level controllers, which will constantly adjust the bags to maintain the set ride height under different conditions. You don’t have to have these, but I’d like to not effect the way the car currently handles, if fact I’d hope for an approvement.

It's been done. Keith had bags on his 2 door. I'm not completely sold on the set up, personally. A good drop using the correct parts will get you plenty of low while improving handling. Even a mild drop will get you great results. I had no front sway on my 4 door and could throw that thing around corners with just a small drop from VP's springs. Never got it sideways or scared myself, these aren't rockets.

Yeah the more I think about it, the more I just want to stick with vintage type mods. The car is just too nice, too original.

How about bags that have an internal shock?

I thought about those too. That might be a good option.

I've heard great things. There's a mini truck that's been trying out the autox scene with that ridetech setup and he says it handles as well as his Miata.

So I finally got the DCOEs installed.





I also decided to wrap my header



I ended up going with the Holley low pressure fuel pressure regulator hiperfauto suggested. It's small, cheap, and readily available. I took a block off plate for the stock fuel pump location and welded the bracket that came with the FPR to it. I thought it would be a good place for it.








I had bought a new fuel tank a while back and decided to install that too





Also decided to use the Facet low pressure fuel pump. I made a little bracket to mount it under the car, close to the gas tank. I bought a fuel pump relay kit to simplify the wiring.







I still need to finish up the fuel pump wiring, and the fuel lines to the pump and tank.

So I got everything plumbed and wired up, but I decided to move the fuel pump from the original location. After pondering over the location I started to worry about the suspension impacting the pump. It seemed pretty close, and if it ever bottomed out I was worried it would hit. There seemed like a lot of room right in front of the tank to mount it, so I moved it. I'm much happier with this location.




It runs now, and there are zero leaks from any of the lines or fitting. I've got all the idle settings set, carbs are synced, and the Colortune shows a nice blue combustion in each cylinder. As I perfect my Weber carb stills I hope to get it tuned even better, but so far so good.

Love that induction noise out of the carbs. The PV has a loud exhaust, but under 3000 rpm or so more noise comes from the carbs than the tailpipe.

I know right

I was so surprised how loud the carbs were while I was tuning them. The videos do not do it justice.

My cam has a fair amount of reversion, so it might be noiser. If you blip the throttle hard, you can see the inner fender get faintly wet with gas.

It's probably a bit tricky to tune around some of the air going through the carb twice and getting gassed both times...

Tuning off idle gets a lot harder - there are no adjustments. Only parts swaps, in little pricey sets of 4.
