How old is your clutch ? Seems odd that it would slip if it's recent. Is your slave adjusted properly so that you're engaging and releasing fully ?

That old MC was beyond done, that's some junk! Car looks good, glad to see you're keeping it.

I have no history with the clutch. It was fine since I got it until last week. Slave adjusted correctly. That master was pretty good inside besides front seal coming apart and the rear was on it's way out. Thanks for the compliments. I get compliments and start conversations with men and women almost everywhere I go whenever I drive this car
More than any other car I have ever owned



since pictures are a must. Took few things to powder coating today
two 4.5 wheels - because she said 1/2 inch makes all the difference
interior windshield trim
engine mounts
trans mount
seat mounts and seat bottoms (not in pictures)
rear lower control arm
two valve covers
dip stick

Today I decided to work on rear seat area.

Forgot to take picture of seat installed. I removed most of the asbestos insulation a while ago


scraped up and wiped off with goof off. You can spend 1/2 a day getting all the adhesive off (I did on few cars) but at some point it makes no difference


done


doing the tunnel next. Does the shift boot go between the plastic vents and body or does it tuck into the tunnel (trans/boot/tunnel)?


stopped here for today


in Parts Collection Department
picked up the flywheel


got steel timing gears off a Penta at a friends scrap yard for pretty much nothing. Having Volvo tools makes pulling them super easy. Pulled the brass spacer too

The boot is attached to the tunnel and the heater distribution vent piece goes over top. Use washers to prevent it from splitting.

soaked the rear seatbelts overnight - I usually pressure wash old seatbelts but the 122 belts get their color washed out... So I tried this


since I have the seat out I decided to glue the plywood back together. If I ever get to recovering it I will cut a new board out and transfer all the sprangs


waiting, you can never have enough clamps


decided to build a hat shelf. Used a spare body to find the lines using painters paper


used a cut off wheel on a $4 hardboard from Home Cheetos


3M 90 is what I use. Got 12'x4.5' cheapest carpeting for $17. Ill be covering up the floors soon and I dont want to spend the money at VP for original rubber covers, just yet. Dont forget the notches.


My son would have deducted points if I didn't glue that piece of vinyl there.


Installed. I'll get a better picture after I clean back there. Picture makes it look uneven but it isnt.


discharged nearly a full can of 3m glue... I toss cans in there all the time but nothing ever punctures. At least I wont lose tools anymore.


About to remove this pos but I dont want to destroy it in case I do ever need it. Can you remove that head bolt without fuking up the HG?

how is it attached? I was playing with it just now and the only way that made any sense to me was stuffing it inside the tunnel.
washers where ?

I'ver never had to remove the head bolt to remove the temp sending unit. Use a low profile 15 mm, make sure you have it nice and flat against the head and it should come off.

It's easier to have the valve cover off too, it makes for easy access.

lol didnt even think of taking the VC off.. I should be getting the powder coated one any day now, I;ll wait unit then

this thing is super flat too. I might just go to a JY and get a freebee deep socket and notch it


got to KISS

I just checked my tunnel...scratch that - it attaches with four screws to the heater duct. If you don't have screw holes in your duct (that's how mine was attached) then you could just stuff it in the hole.

Then again, they may just float and someone decided to screw mine down.

No screws necessary for the shift boot. The flange gets stuffed into the tunnel. Just make sure to go back under the car and verify that there's no folds in the flange or it will leak hot air into the cabin. If clearance is an issue you may need to drop the trans crossmember down.

Use a crows foot wrench to remove/install the temp sender bulb. It can usually be done without removing the valve cover unless you have an aluminum valve cover.

Thank you. I took most of it apart, replaced screws with stainless, new insulation, rebuilt the valves. Kept the outside original.
Kitchen is a mess right meow. Will be putting in steel cabinets along with a farm house sink - 60 something inches wide, hopefully by the end of the year


thats one of them.Took them apart and got them powder coated. Left is a hobart mixer I got for $50 at the scrap - city tossed it nothing wrong with it

thats what I ended up doing. Dang crows foot wrenches I never had a need for them. Time to buy. I know Luke



Today
old deformed surround and rusty turn signal switch


in case anyone needs to reference


cleaned all the connectors


Found a better surround and I polished it up. Does a psycho GF condom go where the turn signal hole is? Is this much gap between surround and dash normal?



glue is dry - looks the same but at least it isnt coming apart


decided to finish up the driver rear floor. Welded under and touched up some places I missed.
This is before welding from bottom




It helps to remove the firewall horsehair potato sack BEFORE welding. Man does that stink when it burns, must be something else in it


used body sealant inside car only (ran out for bottom) my cocking guns plunger failed, too much pushing for the old tube




used up the rest of my Dynamat up. focusing on the exhaust side since radiant heat is strong.


back seat reinstalled.


what goes in ze hole?




Once I replace passenger front floor, I'll be installing carpet. I need to pull the fender off to properly fix the rust and when I do I will be painting the fender at the same time. Waiting on clutch to arrive so I can swap that over. Fixing up this car so I can fix my 245 T5 tans swap clutch issues

last night... old tires are old. Tires were on order already and wheels at powder coating


because I almost put a spare inside the car...


Today. Got a newer but still used tire put on a wheel for now. Hiperfromance Auto had apprentice Ian deliver this to my porch. He didnt even knock.. delivered and back to L.A.

previous gorilla stripped off the upper two bolts holding trans to bell housing. This was still the easiest removal of transmission out of any Volvo I own.


worn out


right down to the rivets


removed the retaining clip - it went flying and I thought I lost it for sure.... landed in my pile of bolts


IDK what this volvo tool originally was, there were hack marks on both ends but it fit prefectly in the pilot bearing hole .. stuffed it with paper and out it came


This is a late model M40. Looks like someone swapped it in at some point and my speedo is way off. Doesn't this car need a yellow speedo sender ? I had the info somewhere but cant find it.





if you want to know what a moron I am. Eric asked me if I wanted the RMS ... nope it's fine.... well Eric ... now I'm going through my boxes and boxes of NOS parts to see if I have are the right one.... Thats it for today. tired of rolling around on gravel this week.

Nice progress. Surprised nobody has chimed about the gap on the side of the rear seat. Guessing not too many 122 owners here.

That's an early 4½" 140/164 wheel. 1800E/ES never got the oval hole wheels.

Gotta check those part numbers.

Oh yeah, you've got a 2 door rear seat bottom. That's why it looks funny.

I been itching to post stuff but waiting on powder coating to be done

Drove it 180miles this weekend to see 122power(less) but bastard had put his away so no twin pictures there... Thanks Fluke
Meet sick looking dude there who said he had manifolds built in Japan for these back in the day to compete with iPd. Ended up buying a tiny fraction of vintage receivers from him. Going back for more and hopefully some Volvo tools http://forums.turbobricks.com/showpo...5&postcount=68

Yesterday I did 80 miles. Been driving it daily. Lots of love from all sorts of people. Had a corner homeless dude talk to me about his Amazon; to old ladies going “I went to prom in one”
Some drunk women took pictures in it but had husbands :/

I’m trying to decide if I should put an old kenwood in this with amp outputs I have... it’s maybe from the early 80s ... idk how it will look. Don’t need radio on short trips but long I feel like I get vertigo after few hours since shocks are blown. Planning on taking it to Los Angeles (1000 mile round trip in few weeks) I’ll make a thread http://turbobricks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=344595.... damn it so impatient


I appreciate the kind words
