wedge.
~9mm wide ~9 mm tall


started to polish up the door sills. well just one

before


after about 10 min on a buffer





Clock was gummed up with old oils and some dirt, I had to take it apart and just clean and lube. Basic explanation of this clock. Its a windup mechanism that every few min gets wound up by an actuator. So it uses almost no energy

wind up mechanism (red arrow +) moves down toward actuator point as the clock unwinds (yellow -)
When it red touches yellow, the actuator (green) pulls the arm (yellow) toward itself pushing the windup mechanism (red) and the clock is wound up for few min


(no scribbles)



the wind up mechanism was constantly activated because clock mechanism was stuck


cleaned everything and now have a working clock


normally the arm gets pushed up more but I had my wiring in the way

I believe that's a bayonet style bulb in a holder with a male spade connector.

See do it come out.

No problem.

https://www.bulbtown.com/category_s/1346.htm

Or here: https://www.amazon.com/Dark-Green-Co...6STD4RAKMVJYZJ

You could also get some green paint and thin it down, then dip bulb until required greenness is obtained.

That clock is just rad, great find by your lady friend. Also, what a difference on the door sill, I love the amount of detail you’re putting in.

Polishing aluminum back to its former shine is so satisfying. Nice progress, looks great.

Looks like it's almost ready for another run up the mountains, this time hopefully without losing an axle mount

my favorite drive around here.

today I installed a Bosch coil the right way. I still need to clean up the wiring. One of these days I need to take everything out and repaint in there


wired up a windshield washer pump, it even works. I polished the plastic a bit too

Never seen these before, that's interesting. I doubt the regular gasket will have the right provisions for the swivel shaft (for lack of a better term). Have you checked in a parts catalog for an OEM part number ? You can send that P/N to VP and they'll match it up with what they have.

Rear door vent windows were only available on B16 Amazons.

The part numbers for the seals are 657925 & 657926 but they're NLA.

will also be adding the B16 dashboard extensions. I wonder if all this stuff stopped being offered because Volvo was trying to save money. I love the early stuff on these cars

It's what continues to draw me to Jensen built P1800's eventhough Jensen did a horrible job of assembling them. (sooooooo much lead....)

A friend claims he has the ability to reproduce rubber seals, I'll shoot him a text and will let you know what he says.
