Re: Engine wanted

Tmoney, Could you post a few photos of the FI system used on your C304 B30 engine? Shortly after taking delivery of my first TGB11 in 2004, I secured an intake manifold from a Volvo 164E/B30E engine. My measurements showed the aluminum intake with throttle body would not fit in an undisturbed TGB en...

Re: Engine swap without removing body

Ed, We built the adapter plate and used the original Volvo bellhousing and transmission. We used MB flywheel and pressure plate and a Land Rover clutch disc. I understand from Gosta at SMT that he also produces an adapter plate to allow the same OM617A/Volvo bellhousing mating. The engine must be in...

Re: Are the old weber and NDIX carbs interchangeable?

Tjerk, Tell us more about the history your SA Haflinger. Now to your lack of carburetor issue. As John pointed out, the four bolt manifold indicates the Zenith-Pallas 32NDIX carburetor. A quick search of eBay reveals many used carbs from the early Porsche 356 series cars. These were twin carb set-up...

Re: Engine swap without removing body

Ed, You are not crazy. Years ago, a friend went through two B30A motors in his TGB 13 airport fire truck. Replacing original motors/transmissions/transfer case by removing everything from below is quite easy. Around the same time, I completed a conversion of a TGB 1314 from original Volvo powerplant...

Re: Parts availability in the US

Unfortunately, I do not have any of these units in reasonable condition fro resale. You best bet is to search for "Land Rover Series tail lights". Steyr_puch opted for Lucas lights on the North American spec Haflingers. For example: https://picclick.co.uk/Land-Rover-Series-Defender-Side-Stop-Tail-22...

Re: Parts availability in the US

Is it a North American Bugeye and if so, Canadian or US spec?

Re: tgb Fuel Pressue

Rick, The original Pierburg PE 15695 fuel pump is supposed to produce 2.1-4.0 psi between 1000-6000rpm. I have never seen a true fuel pressure regulator on a Volvo using the standard mechanical fuel pump. All the original fuel filter assemblies I have seen mounted to the front left corner of the eng...

Re: TGB 1314 Ambulance box lift height

Uli,
Thank you for your response and the photo. Those blue lifting fixtures appear quite stout and stable. Well done!
The information is greatly appreciated.

Take care.

TGB 1314 Ambulance box lift height

Does anyone know just high (in centimeters or inches) that a TGB 1314 ambulance box must be raised vertically to allow the 6x6 chassis to be driven out from under the box? After a ten year absence, I have reacquired an ambulance I had converted to diesel (OM617A). The previous owner had removed and ...

Re: c 306 power take off seal

Justin Case, I typed both "Volvo 948635" and "Volvo 944050" into Google and found both seals available from several different sources. I did no further exploration but would not be surprised of one or more sources provide the metric dimensions as well. Hope this helps. Jim Molloy Waldersee Farm http...

Re: Front brake problems.

Cavetroll,
Where are you located?
With the brake drum off, if you move the brake shoe ratcheting cam adjusters on the inner surface of the backing plate, do you see any movement of the shoes in or out?
