242 didn't have a legit diesel option, so they will probably trip.

Negative on the redblock adapter, maybe with new holes.

A little cleaning today, removing the old sound insulation in the rear trunk, most just flaked off...the rest I used a heat gun to soften it up a bit.

A little bit of surface rust here and there, mostly in the lower section of the trunk where the fenders meet the trunk.

Also a pic of the rear tail light panel for myself before I start cutting and welding it

Broke out the plasma cutter, the air nibbler and a few other tools to start the 142 tail light conversion.

Yes, that is/was a metal shelf unit, almost perfect thickness match for the Volvo sheet metal.

Still a work in progress!

What DMV can or will do in any given interaction is entirely dependent on which agent you talk to, and what kind of day they are having.
DMV can't issue VECI decals, and if your VECIdoes'nd match what is on the car, you can't pass SMOG. Since the incompetence and sometimes lenience of SMOG tech's knows now bounds, you never know what might happen.

Mueller ZF trans test
drain pan & clean
reinstall and refill(gasket is reusable).
Fire it up, run through the gears, then remove the pan again, and check for fresh debris.

It works, and there a few people I know have done it, pass the visual inspection and that's it, ask me why my 88 244 is smog exempt...

Is the IRS ear end installed yet?

Or is the underbody still naked as a jay bird?

Solid axle laying under the car keeping the spiders company...still not attached to vehicle...minor detail.

IRS is on hold until I do some upgrades to my lathe and acquire some other parts needed for the rear suspension.

Started the new harness today, this is going to take a while....this crimping stuff is slow work!

Loaded up the truck for Davis today! (4/27/13)

New upper (one showing) and new lower trailing arms.....

3/4 inch ends...

.120" wall DOM

I screwed up a little and got a little too aggressive with the welds and warped threads just a little on the inside of the weld bungs.....had to chase the threads with a tap. During a test fit before using a tap to clean up the threads I ended up getting one joint stuck, it is in there forever! Have to buy one replacement unit.

Slowly making progress...sorta, have not worked on the car in a while. Making a tubing bender so I can use it for the rear suspension and other things.

This is the Got-Trikes design.
$20 or so for the plans.
$200 for one die so far.
All the metal was free, I helped a machine shop move into another building years ago and they gave me a bunch of stuff that was going to taken to the recyclers.
The hydraulic jack was free, I can borrow the one from my engine lift/cherry picker.

A few things I've learned so far building this,

I am not the fabricator I thought I was ....

I suck at arc/stick welding...

My 110v Mig welder sucks for this thicker material...

I love my Tig welder now that I've learned how to use it better, still no close-up-worthy shots to post like some of you pros have!

Next time I will just buy the darn bender, too much time spent on it, it wouldn't be that big of deal, it's just that I have too many other things to do to get the car up and running to be spending a full weekend building something. (not 100% of the weekend devoted to building it, still had to do things with and for the family)

Pictures:
Milling the sides flat and all to the same size, the plans call out for some parts to be .625" thick, I used .75 for the parts with all the holes and for 2 "ears" I used .500" thick material that I welded together (parts in vice)

I also milled the bevel for welding those parts together, a hand held grinder would have worked but I was trying out a new CAD/CAM program I bought. (Dolphin CAD/CAM)

Still a few more pieces to weld and then paint it. Hopefully finish it thru the week and get my 1st part bent this weekend.

Interesting project.. I have been contemplating IRS for my Bertone. Can you post a sketch of the control arms and planned mounts? Are you fabricating a subframe like Ford and Lincoln did?

Thanks,

It is official, no more diesel motor for me....traded all my diesel stuff for a complete B230FT from an '86 700 series....

LH2.2 which I have had before and am somewhat familiar with, the head mounted dizzy has to go, I have an LH2.4 block mounted distributor that I am hoping I can use if I put the electronics into it from the head mounted unit.

The more I thought about the diesel I could see more work and money being poured into for not enough return. Yes I will have to take this one to the ref to get it's bar code to be CA legal. Oh well, I enjoyed learning about the Volvo diesels and if I had not headed down that path I might not have meet the other Volvo owners that I ended up becoming friends with.

More Volvo stuff included in the trade, just not shown

Thanks for the offer....I got the computers for it as well as a couple extra AMMs so I'm good there, let me dig around my pile of junk, I might have the correct distributor after all, I forgot about a box I have on the side of the yard, I'll know in a few days.

I feel this is the best path to get the car back on the road, I lost $$ but at least I enjoyed the ride somewhat attempting to go down that path.

Those LH2.2 computers need a crank signal from the Hall Effect sender in the distributor....LH2.4 just has a distributor in it's simplest form, and gets it's crank signal from the tone ring sensor on the flywheel.

Dig up that LH2.2 block distributor...if you can't find it, let me know...I've got a few.

I'm thinking the hall sensor from the LH2.2 740 distributor can be taken out and installed in the LH2.4 240 distributor.

Maybe...you're the guy for that one...

I thought about it, when I had a shortened LH2.4 block dizzy...I wanted to stuff the guts of my LH2.2 block dizzy in there, but it's a lot of work, and an exact science....I ponied up and bought a new dizzy...not much money at all.

I'm kind of surprised you didn't diesel it long enough to reregister it exempt. ;)

I just want the stupid car on the road....going back to gas and skipping the diesel will be the quickest method.

At least now I know what I have to deal with if I need or want to pursue that direction.
