  1. New iPad for Christmas. Two birds one stone 👍👌🤣
  2. Thanks for the help 👍👍
  3. Pretty sure that the curled up piece of metal that you show in the photos is the oil level raiser, it should protrude upwards towards the cam (if that makes sense ) , it keeps extra oil in the head by simply raising the level of the oil return path. It may have dropped down into your head .
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-360-GLT-Rear-Window-Louvre-Part-Number-KH188-Original-Volvo-Part/324323520991?hash=item4b833031df:g:Pl8AAOSwf8Rffbv~ from the same seller. Could we all be missing a new trend ?
  5. I know we are all different but this “ styling accessory’ is not for me. Needs a set of Carlos fandango wheels to go with it . I’m at the age where my neck and back does not turn enough to be able to look over my shoulder when reversing so I fear this could have an impact on rear vision 😂
  6. Hope everything went ok with your operation Herman

    As long as the standard crank is capable of revving to 6000rpm safely then I think that’s realistically where I’m at. I’m not building a race car. More of a real world fantasy . I could strip the bottom end and find that the bores are perfect and don’t need touching but at 100k I doubt it so if I have to rebore it then I have to get new pistons , so I might as well spend a bit more on decent forged pistons and then maybe rods too but I also have to keep the budget real world too and not fantasy. I know the 16v cih is a more expensive route but i feel it keeps the heart of the car the same Maybe these are the answer

    I haven’t really done much research into pistons and rods , cams etc. I’ve read articles with lots of manufacturers recommended. With regards to pistons , wossner and omega seem popular choices

    I have a 2.4 frontera engine 👍. Going to rebore it , new pistons and rods and the 16v top end . Simples 😂 The only part I am unsure of is the crank. Obviously with forged pistons and rods it can rev higher but I don’t know if the crank needs to be changed / uprated

    I like the look of the 400 cam covers and front cover. I know that it would be far easier to drop a newer 16v lump in but I just fancy keeping a CIH in it

    Hi Pete , thank you for the link. The guy who does the engine is on the 16v Facebook group. I think he must have his own 3D printer and cnc milling centre as he makes his own throttle bodies , intakes, trumpets etc. Very jealous 😍 Paul. Thanks for the photos and for the offer of tips etc. I will definitely be taking you up on that 👍

    I’m a bit of a dreamer so I will probably end up with the1.9 that’s in it with a k&n filter on it 😜 I’ve done a lot of research into what’s needed and have access to machinery so hopefully it will be ok 😬 . I’m going to need to find a good engine machine shop for bottom end rebore and I’d would like to get the head done at the same time

    Thanks Herman. The plan is to use the 2.4 block and cut down the 3.0 litre head. It’s a relatively expensive route but it’s one I can’t seem to ignore Going to run it on carbs too . I appreciate that throttle bodies and injectors are probably more reliable and less hassle once done but I just can’t get away from carbs. Noticed a diesel crank for sale on Facebook too 😱. Where do you stop 😳 . I’ve still got to strip the shell , blast it and weld it yet but I just want to get all the parts before I start as it costs more to buy when you need them .
  17. That’s heartbreaking. On the positive side , there’s still plenty of value in parts if you were to break it, got to be at least 2 1/2 to 3 thousand if you’re prepared to work at it and wait Terry, you are far better human than I , all I saw was the damaged manta. I need to look at myself in the mirror 🥴
