Re: Yellowed Back and Side Glass

I replaced all mine with tempered glass. Even has the tempered stamp on it for DOT. It’s pretty easy and reasonably cost effective. Just look up a local glass company and tell them what you need. Don’t tell them it’s for a vehicle, just tell them you need stamped tempered glass and give them the exa...

Re: Electric power steering conversion

Hydro assist is the only way in my opinion. My buddy did an electric and he likes it ok, but it’s been a bit of trouble for him. Hydro is just sooo reliable. You can get an electric hydro pump made for cars, but I would skip that idea personally. And after seeing what my buddy had to do and others f...

Re: Thoughts on 12V on a TGB

Another disadvantage is that it looks to be $700+. You will end up spending $700 quickly in burnt up 24/12V converters etc. I have gone through so many over the years it’s crazy. I have tried expensive ones and cheap ones. They all seem to fail eventually. The Eaton is rock solid though. I will say...

Re: Thoughts on 12V on a TGB

I simply ran my Eaton 12V output to a fuse box with a 24V relay in place of the 12V relay. So you use 24V signal to turn on the relay but you only run 12V through the power side of the relay. That then distributed to the individually fused circuits.

Re: Volvo B30

I go out and hand turn this engine every 2 weeks. Eventually I’m going to start neglecting it.

Maybe I should do a full restoration on it and sell it for a premium?

Re: Volvo B30

That’s correct, it came out of my C303. Last time I borescoped the cylinders it still had hatch marks on the cylinder walls from its last build. And Jim, I have a box that I started for collecting up all the misc pieces I have so you can have your pick of the liter. Just need a bit more time to get ...

Volvo B30

Need to get this engine out of the drive way. Engine should be in good shape but I can perform a compression test on it before sale. Ended up having a ton of water in my fuel and pulled this engine mostly because I wanted to swap in a different engine. Engine will come with most if not all parts nee...

Re: Petronix question

I have a 123 unit that I used on my B130. It worked exceptionally well and never had moisture issues in heavy rain such as we can get here in North Texas. I am considering installing it in place of my Pertronix in my Unimog 404 as it’s a direct fit.

Re: Engine wanted

Jim, just keep in mind that the iC-7 receives much of it data from my OBDII port. It can only receive 4 analog signals and 2 digital signals. I have a feeling they will be expanding that in the future though.

Seems I can upload larger files than I thought. You should be able to zoom in now and see detail. The Gauge is a Haltech ic-7.
