Had to take some stuff apart and painstakingly label everything!



The ac condenser in the new unit is original but sound. Someone ran dye through the system and this has no leak! I cleaned it thoroughly and I’m running it!

Just went thru this whole thread- unbelievable attention to detail and great work. One question: do you have a regular 'job' and do you ever sleep? LOL
I know this build has taken place over almost three years, but it is a ton of work, plus you're also swapping engines, etc. on other cars at the same time.
Anyway...I'm impressed!

Thank you! I want this build to be the best I can make it since it’s such a rare car. I do get sidetracked by other demands (car repairs for the family/friends, other projects, volunteering, etc). I appreciate your kind words as I get feeling I’m not doing enough at times! That said, as I look back at 2018, I rebuilt two p2 Volvo’s, a fishing boat and a 23’ camper! So the 242 was a bit neglected over the year. My goal now is to get it out of the garage by Spring of this year...

Are you planning on using the 4.10 ring and pinion in this car? Assuming you want this to be a street car, I'd recommend not going any shorter than 3.73 if you're pairing it with a M46, M47, M90, getrag 265 or other similarly-geared transmission.

You’re right! I’ve had several folks advise me not to run it as I’m running an M46 so will likely retain the original 3:73 gearset. I respect your knowledge and advice (and your build) thank you!

Good call! I think the 3.73 is a great match for a mild b230f(+)t and m46 setup.

Good luck getting it finished up and getting it out on the road. You're really close.

So in preparation for the a/c system upgrade, I’m changing out thepassenger side firewall panel. Used 100% black silicone to seal the edges.





The panel had a hole for the steering (I think) and I filled it in with a metal plate and painted it.





In she goes!



Added sound deadener as its right by the downpipe.



Returned the oem padding after trimming to fit and put the ecu/ezk and harnesses back

Also got a solid original battery tray (thank you Robert!), sandblasted it and painted it.

Hey can anyone guide me to a speedo cable (from m46 to dash)? I see there are several available that say they fit a wide range of years but I want the correct one. Thanks!
