Re: Volvo Information, Operator and Service Manuals

The book is interesting, it's helpful in many ways, but there are some pages where the scan was off and you miss what's on the whole page, the pictures are not always easy to see... on the whole it's worth it to me, but it isn't as nice of a scan job as it should have been. https://www.dropbox.com/s...

It's not like I can get an attendant to pump the gas in the C303 anyway... :)

Re: True tips, tricks and costs of importing vehicles?

I am going to echo what Vince just said. Get an agent who handles imports and knows the rules and the paperwork required. Use them, don't do it on your own. Be prepared for the ship to be delayed more than once, the expected import date is target, but it will often slide. Mine was way late compared ...

Fuel types

So, I've been running 92 octane gas with a lead additive, but 100ll AVGAS and "racefuel" at 100 octane with lead are available. Not sure if those are the same or not. There is also 92 and 110 octane ethanol free (but no lead) fuel available near my home. I'm wondering what everyone else is using in ...

Re: 1975 Volvo C303 - TGB1111 - Tank Killer - $10500

I saw this one when it was in the shop at Voltech in Portland. I didn't get under the hood, but it looked like it was in great shape otherwise.

Re: LED headlights

I went with the truck-lite lights. They have been fantastic with no flicker and a ton of light. They were just plug and play. Just don't plug them in when the trucks on... I did blow my headlight relay being a dummy. One went in super easy, the other one was a little more of a challenge because the ...
