Will do man, I did change the coil so may have put something where it didn't belong! Thanks!



Time to wash out the cooling system. Nothing terrible, all clear water and a little sediment, no rust !

More than a bit of a process.

I have all new hoses and I'm cleaning up the t junctions.

Tested out the new thermostat

My overflow tank has a good bit of pitting on one side, may need to replace it?

Looks like someone used sealant where it meets the bracket too.


There was no thermostat in it !

Threw the cleaned up idle air control valve back in, fiddly thing to get the bolts in!


The front splitter clip had disintegrated see o quick but if cable tie action !



More on the rebuild of the coolant system later,all the hoses red rotten! Hope my heater core is okay !

Boring stuff here for the most part, had to improvise some brazing with the solder I had on hand for one of the pipe t's. Used a bit too much sealant but got some pretty even squeeze out ;)

Little jobs tonight so they'll be all cured for tomorrow!

Yeah, I might be buying new ones too - that or pipes that are a bit smaller. Did a water test and it took a leak immediately!

Took off the injector lines - was afraid of them twisting or breaking - try finding a replacement!

New crush washers from m1 autohaus

I have new Volvo water Tees if you are interested.

I may also have a spare fuel injector line or two.

So she'll run if I manually actuate the kjet fuel distributor, the engine runs and that's good enough for now, I've to work my way through the troubleshooting guides and see why she needs so much help!

I'm waiting on one of the connector pipes for the cooling system - though I got away with the repair on mine but it's leaking from the seam and a few more pinholes!

To avoid getting static in terms of progress I decided to get the cross threaded wheel stud out of the way! $16 sae set from harbor freight and a bit of luck and got the threads cleaned up.

Can you tell me the location of that idle air control valve?

It's right under the intake manifold, towards the rear of it, undo the two pipes going into the throttle body and undo two ten bolts I think they were, it will also have an electrical connector to remove on it.

Every US market Volvo got electronic idle speed control starting in 1981 so your car should have it. No guarantee that someone hasn’t played Volvo lego in the intervening 40 years though.

Got the right part thanks to a member on here giving me the links! very much appreciated!

20210325_164232 by V G, Flickr에서

New clamps on everything!

20210325_173529 by V G, Flickr에서

made sure to use the right coolant :D

Confirmed it was the right color when it came pissing out the back of the head somewhere.

This car really doesn't want to be on the road!

Time for new battery cables, slow starter and serious heating up !

These are the sizes in first pic if you ever go near an old 240.

Got distracted by a pretty heavy oil leak in the truck! Thankfully sorted quite quickly, I love my Toyotas ;)

Tried to check the timing, can't see any of the flywheel marks, have the belts on order so I can reach when I take off the timing belt cover to check.

No power at the #30 pin of the fuel pump relay with key off so have to chase that.

No bounce in the tach so I've ordered the pickup/ hall sensor, I have a spare distributor here with a new sensor/ pickup lead but I can't get the current distributor out!

Hopefully I can put this new sensor in with distributor in place?

Quick vid of her turning over now, much better than it was, after the cables and cleaning up grounds
