Re: Looking for reason my piston melted

Whoa. What are the valves like? Could it be it was running too lean somehow?

Re: 1979 Volvo TGB211A MT on eBay.

And to think when I was in Sweden, way back before anyone had imported a 30X here, I saw a bunch of these at a surplus yard in perfect shape for well under $10K.

Re: Project Ecarus - A solar-powered 712M project...

Maybe it's not meant literally but it sure seems that way. Building a full camper set-up with the usual appliances that can sit on it's own for a few days, being powered (charged) with solar only is enough of a challenge alone.

Still looking forward to seeing what it's about.

Re: Project Ecarus - A solar-powered 712M project...

It's always cool to see someone try the impossible but if we are talking powering a car, much less a 4x4, with solar only, the technology just isn't there nor is it even close to being efficient enough. They would need panels the size of your average corn field on top of the truck for starters.

Very interesting. You should consider listing the price though.
