I know this, but the ground wire could be done the same way

Thx boss.

May go after the passenger side hinge in the next week or two. Any bets on whether this will fix my long-running power door lock issue? I hope so.

Best car I've ever owned...



Think this thing barks flames at night on decel? That would be sweet.

Maybe if the cylinder head wasn't blown from lobbing a regrind in there without reshimming.

IDK the base circle on a regrind is smaller, so at least it wasn't too tight.

Don't hate on the Thrush resonator glass pack! That's the only noise reduction I have for my car and it's pretty damn awesome.

Oh yeah, it's not quiet by any means. I actually want to put a muffler on it sometime.

Been busy, been sick. Checked the passenger hinge wiring with an ohm meter. All is well. Buttoned her up and took her out for the first time since Davis.

Saab T arrived. Looking forward to IPD and maybe a road rally or two. Probably take the Cooper S to Leavenworth (A/C).

I'll likely do a T5 before a Plus T. My current trans is rubbish.

I know a guy with a T5 swapped into an otherwise stock 240 sedan. According to him it's soooo worth it, makes the car a much nicer drive, even at stock power levels

Ran up to the Vancouver PnP as they just got a '93 244. But, she was a hard front hit and the pulley on the (small reservoir) PS pump was bent. So, I grabbed some repeater lamps from another Volvo and called it a day.

Passing by, I stopped at IPD to pick up the special-order tail gate wire harness. Thought I'd keep a spare set in case my repairs are short lived. Also grabbed a temp gauge "faker delete" kit.

Got the Saab-T installed. Playing with various temp fan switches. And leaks.

Good thing my work is like a 10 minute walk. Waiting on enough money to put a full, much larger diameter exhaust on the 240. I'm thinking 2.75", because most people run 3" on turbo setups and 2.5" on n/a, and I am supposed to be +t-ing the thing eventually.

EDIT: I may as well put that in my own thread

I'll keep a look out. We're coming in Friday too. See if you can rope Mr. Brown into coming.

Carl! We must find a time for a beer before I leave for Orchard Combat Training Center in ID next(not this) weekend. I would say this weekend, but the Wife and I are road tripping down to Ashland for her job(in my car).

I think we're at the Bavarian too. Here's a shot of the Mrs and I. Be sure to say "Hi" if you see us.
