Oh, Iím doin it. I was just sort of apologizing in advance. LoL.

I need a Seattle local Volvo used parts guy. Iíve got BMW dudes I can call with the randomest thing and theyíve got two sitting in their basement. If I need Volvo parts, I need to ping Portland or the East Coast or check CL, but thatís a whole nother level of hassle.

This should be easier to weld to than that MDF.



Thanks MattB

Glad it will be used. Been sitting on it for way too long.

Danny, Carson and a few others you should have access to a pretty large group of RWD Volvo peeps in the Seattle area. Hopefully no one's hoarding parts for a project they'll never see to completion.

Made a little part while I was waiting on other stuff to get completed. An adapter to run an external oil cooler (Yes, yes, I know those are flare, NOT AN fittings, they’re just there for visual representation).



I think I can adapt to the OE E30 oil cooler with some M22-10 AN adapters.

Whiteblock bellhousing acquired. Not an easy Pick N Pull part to grab.

Kind of had tunnel vision. Had limited time to get in/out. Interestingly, someone already had taken just the throttle plate off this car.

164-wise, there's a white '74 at Arlington and a gray-blue metallic '71 at 360 in Lake Stevens. So, your beige '75 is still out there.

Mock up front clip thanks to My local BMW parts guy! Get this propped up and use it to mock up all the components for the swap ahead of time to ease the swap into the Amazon.

How will the engine management work once you've swapped a white block in the car ? I'm assuming the BMW cluster won't be much use to you at that point, since the sensors and associated bits will be different ? Will you just keep the cluster face and replaced the innards ?

Fuel and speedo are independent circuits (speedo is off the diff). Temp and oil pressure are as easy as adding BMW senders and the rest will be handled by MS3. I believe it has a tach output (to be honest I’m not super familiar).

Thanks man. I just hope by sharing all the details (probably too many details), Iíll either A) create a how-to that someone else can use on their own project or B) itíll get someone to try something new because they can see the steps and the finished result.

I don’t know what it is about this car, but when I’m driving it’s just chill. I don’t feel a need to drive aggressive. I don’t have the urge to just get where I’m going. I just can sit back and drive. It’s pretty cool.

A little more dash work. Trimmed down the interface plates, added spacers to accommodate upholstery materials and a bit of air so they don’t squeak or anything.



Regular resin



Add thixotropic



More work tomorrow before work maybe

Took me a while to notice that too!

That intake manifold seems really ideal (fitment wise, not sure performance wise) for the tighter 120 engine bay. Kind of wish it fit the older motors.

The fact that itís OEM two piece (and the fuel rail mounts to the lower half) makes it ideal for a custom plenum. Yeah, the bolt pattern is 100% different.

Took some time this morning and on lunch to take measurements as best I can. The depth measurements are accurate. The inner surface of the two bellhousings are just “best I can” measurements. I scribed every inch going in (then two more at half inch in the Getrag).



Then I broke out the trust old “large scale” MDF calipers



Took a bunch of measurements



Converted the measurements to 2D CAD



Overlaid the two



Looks like the M20 throw out bearing contact surface will line right up with the B5254T clutch fingers.



I won’t be able to set final depth until the clutch slave cylinder shows up to measure resting depth. If my math/understanding is right, if I put a spacer between the flywheel and pressure plate that is the thickness of the clutch disk minus frictions (at least to the rivets) than tighten the pressure plate down, the finger height should be the maximum “stack height” and should be where the throw out bearing surface rest depth is. Correct? (Does that even make sense)
