Its green and it took me to high school for years when we used to carpool. PM me if interested!

Like I said I haven't been able to confirm either of those claims on mine (it's been away for a while now) but the turbo claim was according to the head of Volvo service in my area (although it wouldn't be the first time they were wrong) the LSD claim was on a forum. Both could be lies to be honest.

DarkKratoz on here had one and swapped in a 15G in his '91 SE. Pretty sure it was a 13C that came out, for what it's worth. LSD might be an option? I was under the impression that here it was mostly Regina N/A 940s that got that rear end.

'85 245 Looking for an ICU (1346107)

If anyone has a spare (unknown or known working) I'm interested!
Also happen to be looking for rear left and center bumper trim pieces...

Otherwise, are there wreckers locally? I've only found Chapman's on the island so far

Thanks!

^If you have a passport, it may be worth taking the ferry ride over to Tsawwassen, then heading down into Washington. There's Rainbow Auto Service in Bellingham, then three Pick-n-Pull yards in the Seattle area (all of which have the ignition module you're looking for, at 50% off this weekend), plus a couple other yards that are all U-pull yards.

Otherwise, you're looking at dealing with Schram's, Scandia, or praying there's something at the Chilliwack PaP.

Empire in Abbotsford has a self-serve yard also. You can call them and ask what's in the yard.

Pick-a-part in Chilliwack has a vehicle search page on their website, but it looks like they only have a '92 240 right now.

Allvo down off of Bryne Road in Burnaby has a lot of old 240 junk, if they are still in business.

Many of the local hoarders keep an eye on this thread too...

Any chance someone's got a spare aw71 taking up space? The trans that went in with my new engine has started making a baseball card in the spokes sort of noise. Frigging torque converters failing.
Would also consider a 70 but really a 71 is what I'm after, +t is imminent. Should be happening right now.

I know I might get away with just a new converter, but the 71 that's in there now is an unknown junkyard unit and I don't want to risk doing this a third time.

As luck would have it, I do have an AW-71. I bought it from a local TB member, then soon after acquired most of the things I need for a manual swap
