looks like it must have been cracked for some time - little bit of rust on right side


cleaned yup for welding


I only have a 115V welder so I heated up the metal and went to town.. will fix at friends house along with the other side


made brackets


with reinforcement brackets


replaced this bushing (one side) - kind of PITA to get everything back on since poly doesn't compress as easily.



installed powdercoated strap retainers (both sides)


got some stuff back from powder coating



swapped the fan

Great updates Jack, love everything you’re doing here. What is the large red square piece you got back from powder coat?

I'm guessing it's a tool box drawer.

So I been getting a massive exhaust smell in my cabin. I thought the main cause of it was manifold to exhaust flange - I could never get it to stay tight

I got an old IPD thick walled header and a rally sports exhaust muffler.


removed rust using electrolysis


The 3 bolt flage sucks so I got a Vband kit from summit


high temp paint with new flange


2.5 to 2 inch reducer


covered with exhaust wrap



Turns out old maifold broke


got it all installed tonight but I didnt get a flex joint to connect between reducer and existing exhaust so I just made (very poorly) an old pipe work. Leaks like I knew it would. Going to an exhaust shop on Monday.
I also broke cylinder #4 exhaust stud. I;ll be replacing that in the next day or so also

the "stock" manifold cracked and I installed an old IPD one. From what I hear its all thin walled stuff now and doesnt last ... but price is right


Yesterday got all new exhaust made for it from header all the way out the back and had a shop install my amazon rally muffler. (will need to take pictures under the car) No more clunks and the car really woke up. Runs really well and is much faster than before



while installing my header I broke off this stud so I replaced it yesterday using the welding trick

busted


weld nut on


and it's off



took it out for some photos - 3 miles from home










got a carwash today. The washboys said I get "car of the day"

I found one of those IPD/dSummit/elsewhere Patriot brand headers on Amazon once for $75(ish) shipped. For that price, hard to go wrong.

I got it, it had nasty blobby welds inside the ports, sticking the thin tubes to the flange. Bad idea, but I took a die grinder and gronud down the worst of the blobs.

Then it lasted a coupla-three years until one of the pipes cracked loose from the flange. I tacked that one back on, but after a couple of more months a second pipe cracked loose. Time for something better - I got a nice hefty solid 4:2:1 style from KGTrimning.

5 go in, 1 comes out.

But on the bright side, part outs do help other cars stay on the road.

I just drove to Los Angeles/SF and back in the last 3 days. The Exhaust is so damn nice but a bit too loud at times. I need to add a second muffler. I kid you not, I got 24.7mpg in 4th gear doing 80mph for 100s of miles. Car pulled 80mph going up Grapevine - huge mountain pass going into southern Ca ( goes from 0? to about 4100ft above sea level, 5% grade)

see below

if this one falls apart, I'll get that

Only thing I dont like about it is how close it is to the oil filter. I do have it wrapped but I think I;ll make some removable heatshield for the filter

Scored like new cocker tires (thanks to Jfry) for cheap - they even still have the little dingles on sides and bottom

I need to polish up the beauty rings and caps for them
front of my house

Jack,

You were only 20 miles away and you didn't stop by.

Almost 25 mpg, quite impressive. Were those the carbs I rebuilt?

Think of what your mileage would be if you had an overdrive. You would also have less engine noise and exhaust noise!

Back in the mid 1990's, I used to drive about 1000 miles each way to Jackson Hole, WY to visit a friend who lived there in my 1968 122S with dual SU HS6s, a B20E with high compression, an Isky 71 cam and a J overdrive usually cruising around 85 mph and I got almost 30 mph even with low profile tires and large load, me at 250 lbs.

I was also carrying around my mountain bike and couple of hundred pounds of tools and miscellaneous car parts that would be hard to find in Jackson Hole along with my personal effects.

I was going to but ran out of time. I'll be coming back soon anyway. Uncle and cousin ate up all my time... I got there Wednesday night and left Friday morning,

That is on the carbs rebuilt by you. I retuned them after I got the exhaust put in. Work so well!!! I'll be calling you later for more parts and $

On the way back with strong! headwind and car full of stuff from parents house, got about 22/3 but I was also doing 80-85 whole time. It's actually quiet at 80mph but when I let off gas it just drones, then again I haz no insulation in trunk.
I need to take this M41 out and put my other "known good" one - This one needs reverse gear - clunks like an old pirate. Wiring hopefully this week for the OD.


I need seat back foam so BAD :( (miss you stolen package)

Installed one hubcap and four beauty rings

Well if you would have stopped by, I would have surprised you with 3 of those same hubcaps, none of them in great shape, but usable.

But you put family over me, ha. What kind of Volvo enthusiast are you?

Just kidding, I hope you enjoyed your visit and those hubcaps still have your name on them,
well actually they say "VOLVO" but you know what I mean.

Can you imagine a hubcap with "NxxxxxxxxxxxZ" stamped into it? It would have to be on a very large wheel!!

Jfry gave me a set yesterday. It was nice of him. I need one or two more, just depends on how much less dented they are.

Right the wheel would have to be 20 inches with a 15 inch hubcap for my name



and now with all four caps on
