Re: Planetary gear leak?

Re: Pin out for the Key switch and black out light switch

I know its a while since you post, maybe you solved it. But i have this info somewhere.
I traced all of the wiring, made my own pin outs of all of the connectors. I have also bypassed the BOL switch in a way that it would be put back. WIll try to dig the info out.

Re: Volvo on ebay

This is the famous C303 that probably convinced me to buy one. As featured here http://www.fourwheeler.com/project-vehicles/131-0904-volvo-valpen-tgb-111a-1975/ If i didnt already have mine on the way to being like this one, i'd buy it. (But yes dont get the hub change without giving it disc brakes)

Re: disk brake conversion

A good find Haf-e, thanks it could be useful for other parts.
I read that as 1300 per axle, if thats the case its a little expensive.

I am looking at these guys now http://www.volvoaxles.com
Can use brembo and mercedes 5x112 wheels, or original wheels with smaller calipers.

Re: Power Steering

Mine was fitted with a Saginaw system by the previous owner. Works well.

HI Jim,

I have this job to do soon. also ordered boots from fmv4x4.
I'd really appreciate a few more pics, perhaps a brief step by step?

Re: Couple light switch questions.

It should be the auto lights, i.e. they come on with the ignition. it overrides the manual switch.
