Gone...My work shop

Posted Jul 24th, 2016 at 21:23 by BrianH

Gone, all the Volvo 245 parts
Only one member responded to my offer of free parts.
John Henderson on 07751 448712 took most parts. He breaks Vovos in Fordingbridge. I gave him the M47 gear box, 1986cc engine, and many other bits. Do ring him.
The irratic and bad MPG was a burnt exhaust valve on No2 cylinder. Alex got it refurbiished and fixed for 900. The 2326cc engine runs realy well, goes like the wind.
The odometer failed again, so in with the spare again and of to the repair man in Portsmouth. It might of be the end of life! We will see.
Alex has just put in a steering rack. Much improved slack on the steering rack, not perfect htough. Oringonal will now be refurbished and eventually reintalled, like the M47 gear box. Its now run in and the oil changed. Again it should last to 500k again.
My Volvo 245 GL is now at 607k miles.
