Re: Air intake before filter

Thanks very much for the quick response.

Anybody out there need a bit of plastic Volvo memorabilia for their collection?

Air intake before filter

I have a stock TGB 11 with a B30A engine which I assume is original. In the air intake tubing or duct just prior to the air cleaner is a thermostatically operated damper. In theory it directs air from around the exhaust manifold to the air cleaner until the engine warms up and then just as a thermos...

Re: HELP Missing Screw for Axle Boot

If you're going to work in the grass or gravel or dirt buy a magnet. Buy a BIG magnet. I have one for the job site that's a flat plate on an axle between two lawn mower size wheels. Handy for finding tiny shouldered fine thread Stromberg carburetor screws that leap out of your fingers trying to esca...

Re: For Sale C303 in St Louis, MIssouri

Will you be posting any pictures? or
Has your truck been sold?
People keep stopping to talk with me about mine and where could they find one.

Thanks, Rick

Re: Saw this Valp listed.

It is up on Ebay. Listing ends in 8+ hours with a bid last night at $15,000.

It says its a 1979. One resource I looked up said those were made under license in Hungary. Don"t know if that's true or not.

Re: Vermont Overland Rally 2017

My son and I had a fun trip to Vermont the end of September. Met a great bunch of people at the Vermont Overland Birdwatching Safari. Brady with the Pinz from MA really gave my friend Justin in an M37 and my C303 a whirlwind introduction to Vermont Class 4 roads. Some of which look remarkably the sa...

Re: What is this for? Two front and two in the back?

The two in front pivot to secure the rear facing jump seats when they are in the stored (up) position. Never could figure out the two in back.

Re: Vermont Overland Rally 2017

My son and I are headed up to Reading Vt for the rally this weekend. Starts on Thursday. They've changed the name to Vermont Overland Birdwatching Safari. Anyone else headed that way? It would be great to meet up and trade stories.

Re: Officially shopping for a Volvo C303

The C303 in Randleman North Carolina is listed on Ebay again.
Looks like its in decent shape from the pictures. How come this one never sells?

tgb Fuel Pressue

I searched through the data base looking for comments about C303 fuel issues. Maybe the answer to the following is in there but I couldn't find it. In the front of the engine compartment is a fuel filter element and bowl. The top is marked pressure regulator. Acorn nut on top. Tatanka lists it as a ...

Re: Flamethrower coil for 123ignition

i understood from a US supplier that the 123 ignition was only available in 12 volts. How can the stock 24 volt Bosch coil work?
Thanks for any input on the subject.

Re: Officially shopping for a Volvo C303

I thought the one available in North Carolina recently looked pretty good. When you get one that means there will be two of us in MA. The registry here on the island couldn't decide what to call mine and what to do if it wasn't listed in their computer. I said "Look outside. Lets call it a van." "OK...

Re: Vermont Overland Rally 2017

Thanks for your link to Vermont Overland. I've been searching high and low for any 4X4 get togethers in the Northeast. They are few and far between. Also it seems like the only trails in New England are on private land and hard to access. There seems to be one on State property in northern NH. I don...

Re: Winch electrics amperage load

Thanks very much. I guess I should have been more specific. I was talking about self recovery. I have a 54 M56 Dodge with a PTO winch for doing heavy dragging. Never had a vehicle with an electric winch. The Volvo batteries are in pretty good shape so that should be good to go.

Winch electrics amperage load

I have a stock 24volt Military tgb 111 or C303. I have been researching installing an electric winch. Using the WARN Severe Duty 12 as an example I am concerned about the amperage requirements to operate the winch. If you were to strictly adhere to the rated duty cycle with a line load of 8000# you ...
