Anyone know what size the 145 arb is? Is it 17mm?

I think the earlier post with the R Sport listings indicate the factory bar was 15mm, hence the (15mm) notation - actually don't recall if standard issue wagon came with a heavier std bar. No real reason it would have.

Would have thought the same but both the bar and bush have a different part number. Page 10. Only reference I have found for the size is on Ozvolvo forum.

The link has expired? Do you need to be a member to see it? Maybe take a screenshot. If saw the part number listings, it might jog my memory. Last time I looked up 140 parts, it was on microfiche, back in the 80's.

EDIT. I see what you mean, 73-74 catalog shows 1210292 bar & 1210302 bushing as an alternate. notes column is incomplete. I'd have to say those would have only been on '74 MY - 7 digit (12xxxxx-x) PN's didn't really come into play before then, if memory serves - but maybe it was 73 MY . Can't tell from that what the difference would be. Hopefully someone remembers.

The notes say that the 688225 bar is for 142 & 144. The 1210292 bar is for 145.

The 1210292 bar does appear in the '67-'72 catalog but the notes say it's only for '72 hi top (Express or ambulance).

Thanks, seems that some or all of the 145s have a different ARB but just need to find out if it was thicker and no idea what the chances of getting on are?

Chances are good as it's still available from Volvo.

The bushings however are NLA. This place sells the 142/144 bushing for the 145 bar which makes me think there isn't a huge difference in the size of the bar. I'm not sure why they say it's for the rear axle though.
