I like the R 18" to be honest but lets see. I have thought about turboing it!

Both from the VIN code "75" and the fact that D24TIC was only factory diesel in 780's, no D24T's, no D24's.

It seems like your car wa 167th Bertone ever made, considering the fact that VIN code "G" says it's 1986, which was first year of production...
I thought they all had IRS's back there!?

Someone tipped you correctly, at least regarding 1986 N/A diesels, not sure about TIC's, since I never had a TIC older than 1987, and that car had the same crossmember as B230's.

Your car, having received D24 N/A, might also have -1987 diesel crossmember, which would have driver side motor mount welded in, just as B234F does.



BTW, as for your sunroof woes, I'll bet you your motor is out of sync. I think I explained procedure a couple of times and there should be a how-to somewhere on Brickboards...


Great car, even in that condition. Good luck!

- Radio was switched with a second sunroof switch, hit that and it would open
- Nope the old 86 diesels had solid axle. same like the parts blue car had in the last post
- I will get back on the sunroof issue, i did some parting of the car i will post back later on

well look at that, just got this 945 LPT for free from my neighbor that I helped out a few times with his Volvo and Corvet.
Guess I'll go 8V after all :-)

Not any time soon. If it all works out like I have in my mind I can see myself dallying the **** out of this car. So I would need to keep it simple.

Thanks, having that 945 show up did boost my agenda around this car. I like to keep my driveway clean of clunkers so that motivated me

Things are going well on this side, got a kid on the way and getting married in a week or so. exiting stuff.... I need to get my projects done!

Spend some good time on the wiring and resoldering the needes wires so i could ditch the big connector blocks.
ALso bought some spacers for the Pegs.
After all that was sorted i fixed the fuel lines using a filter setup from a Volvo 360 and now she runs!
Next up is getting a exhaust, and clean the flame trap as the block did leak some oil but i'm pretty sure its the flame trap

Most off the conversion is done, just need to get the welding done and a few odds and ends in the electonics.
Now it was time to look for an interior. that stuff be expensive!

I have been in contact with allot of people but all the interiors where twice what i paid for this entire project.
I decided to go with my old 760 turbo seats (from a V90) when a friend asked me if i wanted to buy his 780 project.
Few months later i got my interior... plus another 780
