In Search of Volvo Part

Hello, Thank you for looking. I am in search of a “companion flange” for my C303. I have located a vibration passed on from the previous owner coming from an out of center flange on the rear end of the transfer case. The part happens to be identical to all the flanges on the driveline. The connectio...

Re: Volvo Information, Operator and Service Manuals

Thanks for the info Jim!

I received my manual, it is as described by Aaron not bad but not the best quality. Wonder if we could find someone with a lightly used original manual who would be willing to have it professionally reproduced. Ive got 600 pages to pour over while I wait.

Best,
Dustin

Re: Volvo Information, Operator and Service Manuals

I would expect that intellectual property and copyright is now in public domain. I’d bet that if you were willing some people could fund properly reprinting your manual in a high quality form. I didn’t realize that the lulu press edition was shade-tree type quality. Just as important as keeping part...

Re: Volvo Information, Operator and Service Manuals

Aaron, thanks for the Dropbox link. I’m hoping the lulu book is of decent quality, but nevertheless it’s great to have a print version in the truck. Hope to catch up soon. Jim, I’m very excited! I’m going to head in the alu-zink direction. I missed you when I popped in with some fresh caught salmon....

Re: POLY CV Boots

There’s a guy on the Volvo C303 Facebook page offering silicone cv boots made for off-road rigs with Volvo axles Out of Malaysia. Anyone tried these out? From what I understand silicone is much more durable and resistant to dry rot and tearing.

Re: Volvo Information, Operator and Service Manuals

Howdy, I suppose a brief introduction is in order... I’ve been reading up here over the last year to feed my curiosity and admiration for the c303. I got to ride in c303 back in ‘12 at the Waldersee farm in Oregon and wanted to find my own ever since. I’m moving forward this fall purchasing one and ...

Re: Importation Tax into USA

Yano

Wow, I’m not sure I could park a brand new to me C303 in garage and wait out the taxes. My hats off to you. If I end up buying a European C303 I’ll probably check vessel tracking daily and show up to the port a day early just in case!

Seriously, thank you for the input.

I’ve been researching the importation of a C303 into the states and learning about ownership in all the pages here. Are there people that have exp...
