Me too -- it'll be a cool little detail for the car. I really like it because it's a genuine Volvo item that is era appropriate. Now I just need to do a nice cleaning on it and the matching Volvo emblem for the other side and give them a nice fresh finish.

Spent a little time in the garage last night working on it. Also did a lot of staring at the engine bay and rearranging things for the engine bay in my mind. Clearing up the vision for it I guess you could say

Derek had previously removed all the wiper stuff from the car as it was going to be a summer only car for him. Since I'll be reinstalling it all I pulled the wiper motor out of the box in the trunk and got it all cleaned up, painted, and bolted back down to the firewall -- sticky gooey seal and all.

Also got started on the hydraulic clutch conversion. Unbolted the old clutch pedal and bolted in the new 260 hydraulic clutch pedal clone I got from Tom Smith:



Then got the clutch master cylinder bolted in, which turns out kinda sucks when you're doing it yourself and have no one to hold the bolt head on one side of the firewall while you tighten the nut on the other. Got that attached to the pedal so that side of it is done.

I'm keeping the M46/flat flywheel combo in the car & I already have the hydraulic fork from a 740 and slave cylinder from 740 so I'll install those next. Just gotta figure out which release bearing to use with this combination. I might have to just order an M46 hydraulic clutch release bearing from a 740 and compare it to the early M46 one in there now. From the pictures they don't look too different at all, but I have no measurements so The early M46 I have has the early shaft with smaller spline count than the later M46, but as far as I know the diameter is the same so I don't see why the original M46 release bearing in there wouldn't work?

Right after I finished typing that, these showed up at my desk




For reference, they're fresh seals for where the side tail lamp assemblies seal against the body on the outboard sides. #13 in the diagram:

New tail light seals = more matte black. Daddy likes.

Well, it's in my garage with an empty engine bay at the moment... I bet you saw Bryan's 142. He has a white 142 he daily drives that he did the black back panel on too. I'd imagine that's the car you saw.

You might (and probably will) hate me for this, but the motor is a no-go. I failed to realize that I'm moving to a garage-less apartment in less than two months

NOS butteryness that showed up in the mail today:





The "as-stealthy-as-it-gets" wiper motor install eluded to above:




The new clutch master placement -- just gotta unbolt the block off plate and it goes right on:



The hydro pedal mounted in the pedal box & attached:

Did IPD buy out a random swedish part warehouse? I think this thread has more NOS crap than I've ever seen.

Yes, we might be able to use it as a chumpcar motor? We still need to figure out how to mount an OHC engine, but that's the plan for October's race!

Car's looking awesome man! Do you expect to have it ready for IPDizzle's swap meet?

He wants to put a B21 in a 142. It will never work. The B21 wasn't installed there from the factory so there is no way to make it fit.

Thanks! Dunno about for garage sale. I'd really like to have it driving by then. Need to call Bryan at M&B and bug him about my motor parts that he's had since January I guess.

That motor/trans combo wouldn't happen to be that 2.5L penta motor now, would it?

Thanks for letting me know, Kyle

It would not.

Edit: Just realized you probably directed that comment to Kyle. So nevermind!

I got distracted by a deck project last weekend.

So because of that I didn't do much on the car. Got back to it last night though and got more of the headlight and parking light stuff reinstalled. Got the switch back in, the harness for it untangled and got it all hooked up to the power block and new relay setup. Also fished out the wiper motor harness and shrinkwrapped it at the connector to tidy it up. Just need to grab a small grommet and drill a hole in the firewall right under the motor to push the wires through. I also reinstalled the firewall grommets I removed when painting the bay in all the holes that will remain unused. Oh, and also ordered all the clutch line stuff for the hydraulic conversion from Volvo.
