That's pretty cool. Probably been floating around in there for a few decades.

Thats what I thought it might be. It has wedged itself. Will try to get it out. If I can't get it, it's going to stay in for another few decades. Lol.

Thanks!

Paint is "always" nice...seen your current mods, but will you go all the way with the rest of the "underbody"!? Good luck....following from here.

You've probably figured it out already but the pick up tube at the top of the tank has an internal tube that goes to the bottom.

It does?! I'll have to take another look tomorrow. Didn't see that before. Appreciate it!

I'll play around with it tomorrow and make a choice. I'll also talk with the powder coat place near me. They owe me one right now.

Nice work. Is your filler neck loose ? I had mine re-soldered in Kentucky, only requirement was to bring them a tank that had been dipped to remove any risk of explosion from fumes. That undercoating is usually pretty thick, I bet it was no fun to remove.

Heat gun and putty knife was the easiest combo I found for removing undercoating. Still took a long time, but my arms and fingers weren't trashed when I was done.

I'm still in the process of removing all the $*** caked on it. Haha.

The discussion about rear wagon springs got me thinking. I have heard grumblings that the IPD rear sway might be a little too stiff for the wagon. I disconnected it and the car rolled a lot more and i felt it handled better with it, but that was with stock springs and wheels. For kicks I disconnected it with the new suspension. I did not notice any additional roll, less likely to spin the the rear tire in tight corners. Front pushes a little earlier than before but still pretty balanced.

I think the combination of the stiffer springs and shocks were too much with the rear sway. Will try the 175 lb springs sans rear sway. I am guessing it will be a nice compromise.

I don't have a rear sway bar. Don't even have a panhand bar either (will have to make something). I have no idea how it's going to handle for me and nothing to compare it too since this is my first Volvo. I will just have to drive and adjust. I know the setup will be stiffer then what it was ( a lot of worn parts).

Did your setup have poly bushings?

Thanks,

New poly bushings. Still have not replaced the hourglass shaped axle mount bushing. I am still a little traumatised from trying to remove bolts rusted to bushing sleeves.

I like the way the wagon handles. It is no racecar but it is a ton of fun to drive in a spirited manner on twisty back roads.

Got the car on the ground to take measurements and see what sort of adjustments I'll need to make to the suspension. Still sitting higher than I wanted. Also, don't like the wheel gap.







Thanks,
