They definitely know...Fixed a few leaks and then the car starts acting up. Wheel bearings are making noise Thankfully I had these on the shelf, but I'm getting a wee bit tired of this 744 Glove box latch also failed so I'm thinking magnets

Mine exploded not to long ago...magnets seem like a good solution! Thanks for the idea!

Haven't gotten to the magnets, but hopefully that's the solution to our glovebox woes

RF wheel bearing was 'sploded. Suspect LF will be the same story. Got one new one in. Have to trim the studs to put the spacers/wheels back on

Just need all the stuff you have lol. I think a tune/chips will be the thing to wake this car up . In my defense...that was a 40 roll and the wagon has long legs. It's less of a whooping from a dig. Did manage to handle a CTS 3.6 from 20-120 It's nice living so close to Mexico ;)

I think you're more than a tune a chips away, but it's certainly doable.

I know of at least 4 peeps (Gary has two show ready rides by himself ) here locally, I want to organize a trip down there one of these days. Or even a local meet for C&C Folsom soon.

Eh, my wagon really needs a little prep to be fully show worthy, little stuff. The 140, yeah, it's down for the count until I figure out the oil leak and get a radiator in it.

Trying out the magnet fix on the glove box. Just waiting for the epoxy to dry before I test it. Cut a magnetic washer in half and then put in 2 screws that looked OEM enough. I probably should have painted the magnet black, but if it works I will hardly ever see it

Ended up moving the magnet and adding a second screw for more contact. Works okay so far, but next time I will use stronger/ more aesthetically pleasing magnets



So I fix the front wheel bearings and the glove box explodes. Fix the glove box and the turn signal relay starts acting up



The car is still magically losing coolant somewhere. I'm thinking water pump because I never did do it to this car (gave the one I had to my Dad). Anyone want to buy a 744?

Got the front wheel bearings setup and installed thanks to advice from the maintenance & non performance part of TB

After some test drives, the car is now profusely sweating horsepower on the garage floor Seems like water pump and front cam seal





I'm in the market for a suitable shortblock to freshen up if anyone local sees this

i don't see any oil. so cam seal likely OK.

It's probably the waterpump seal between pump and head . I seem to remember that you can get them separately (without the pump)
Remove pump (might as well check the pump bearings, axel play and impellor > if OK, remove old seal from pump > clean sealing surface on the block and pump > use new gasket > install pump loosely > pry pump upward against head in order to make the new pump seal do it's job > fix the pump fasteners while prying > check + top off coolant level > run engine until warm and check for leaks.
Also pay attention to the heaterpipe seal! That one likes to leak as well, gooping it up with paste gasket helps to make it seal.

Ordering polished caps that don't say STANCE on them Definitely like it more than painted Okie-chrome silver
(wheels are dirty)




I want to add a volvo logo to the center caps. Debating silver or black

BTW Thanks Janspeed for the thorough notes! Water pump ordered. Hoping to do the work Tuesday I still think the cam seal is leaking (or possibly weeping like Gary mentioned). Car is losing oil somewhere and the head above the water pump is moist. Will post pics during daytime in better lighting.

Wanted to say thanks to all of you for offering your thoughts on the car and my maintenance issues Tb is good people

Edit:

Throwback photo with my aunt's BMW Isetta 300 to keep me motivated

Cool deal, hope you get it hammered out. Pump is cake on those.

Should have that other stuff we talked about ready in the next few weeks, just keep it quiet, don't want people knowing about this scheme just yet.

Thanks man, we'll talk

Rear center caps I have 240 studs and lug nuts on the shelf. The plan is to match the front and rear hardware

The death of a water pump:



Picked up a new pump at Kruse/Lucas and got some dress up parts at Pick n Pull

It would be REALLY TB if I had just picked out the best looking pump at the yard and grabbed it too
