Four pumps, plenty of batteries and
an unhealthy abundance of hydraulic fluid, this Volvo now moves rather
quickly. This pic was taken shortly after fitting the rams up front.
It is worth noting here that within
a week of this little lot falling into the boot, six points had been
won for causing 'distraction to other road users' and 'driving a vehicle
in unroadworthy condition'. How rude.
Unfortunately, the 3 litre straight
six died a noisy and messy death. Picture shows Volvo awaiting that
Rover 3.5 V8 sat backstage. The hydros move it so quickly with no engine
Now complete with the wires from Benz.
The engine crossmember is resting on the floor, and it's still not low
enough (apparently). V8 is in the process of being fitted as this is
typed. Be warned, this guy owns a body shop and spray booth, so this
little Volvo may get out of hand.
