Re: Transmission parts

Nelson,
I believe Cody was able to locate the two items from Haflinger Technik after all.
Take care.

Annual IPD USA Garage Sale, Swap Meet and Car Show

Calling all Volvo TGB owners in the Pacific Northwest. Mark your calendars! Saturday May 16th, 2020 is the date for the annual IPD USA Garage Sale, Swap Meet and Car Show. Last year, Chris at IPD had me park my 1975 TGB1314A in the driveway into the car show area. Quite an honor! This year, I sugges...

Re: Flange Leak

Uli, Thank your for the reminder. Do you have the SKF part number? The dimensions? The cost? Do you plan to use the same size seal or one with a slightly larger internal diameter? Was the sleeve a simple press fit or did you heat the sleeve/chill the stub axle prior to installation. Jim Molloy Walde...

Re: Northwest MogFest 2020; The Oregon Trail

Aaron, We are as well! While I do not know anyone in the PNW who owns a Volvo TGB20, it certainly would be nice to greet the MVPA convoy with the full range of Volvo TGB variants along with ex-military Haflingers, Pinzgauers, Unimogs, G-wagens, Saurers, Land Rovers, French Lohr, MAN, Hanomag, DKW/Au...

Re: Northwest MogFest 2020; The Oregon Trail

Vince, In the first twenty years, we had a bit of rain four times that I recall. On sunny clear days with high barometric pressure, high temps can rise into the 90's and low 100's. When cloudy, we tend to see mid 70's and 80's. Around 7:00 pm, he get a strong sea breeze that comes inland over the co...

Re: Engine wanted

Very good thought! One of those priceless "teaching opportunities" that forward control truck drivers can impart upon the reckless and uneducated. A true potentially life saving eye opener.
Take care.

Re: Engine wanted

Thank you! Mine was not meant to be aggressive either. Just a reminder to all. I have no doubt about your driving skills and understanding about driving these vehicles at speed. You are absolutely correct about the importance of maintaining adequate (some people might think excessive) braking distan...

Re: Engine wanted

Just to be clear, I was not questioning the capability of the standard Volvo TGB brakes when faced with speeds originally expected to be encountered by both Volvo and the Swedish military. My concern would be how well the brakes would function when the road speed is pushed up into the 70+-80mph (pus...

Re: Engine wanted

While I believe House of Spanners made several R&P sets including a 5.99:1 6x6 set to match the road speed of the standard 4x4 trucks, their fastest R&P set was either 5.0:1 or 5.1:1. What size tires are you currently running? Please remind me...where you planning or have you already upgraded your b...

Re: Engine wanted

You mentioned installing different gears in your differentials. What ratio did you choose? Please define "stupid fast'. :)
