    Sorting my 144, SU HIF dieseling and stiff shifting M40.

    Sorry to belay this, but did you try spraying (soaking) around the intake manifold with carb cleaner to when it's high idling to find a leak yet? Especially in the joint between the intake and exhaust ports. I repeat this because I found it on mine after many hours of convincing myself that an...

    Can you wash their dirty clothes? Weather is still looking "iffy".

    140 progressively gets slower while driving.

    I think your fuel tank is not venting properly.

    Sorting my 144, SU HIF dieseling and stiff shifting M40.

    Sadly, I doubt you're having a break-in issue. At this point though, you know the steps to pull it out. :e-shrug:

    Sorting my 144, SU HIF dieseling and stiff shifting M40.

    FWIW, I'd try to get the idle down closer to 700-750 rpm. That helped me with run-on on my rebuilt B20s. Those engines were +0.030" with a little shaved off the head, stock camshafts, HIF6s and Pertronix. Going to assume you don't have a warped (leaking) intake manifold. That was always the...

    Re-using B20 head bolts

    Does that stuff really work that well? I've been reluctant to purchase it thinking it is snake oil.

    Amazon head light switch getting hot and significant voltage drop

    Captain Obvious here, but ALL the connections have been cleaned of corrosion, right? I never realized how much a little corrosion will affect the amperage draw. Learned that lesson from SWEM on my 6 volt PV544. Clean everything and apply some non-corrosive zinc paste to the connections. I was...

    B18 SU Manifold

    Pretty certain that Volvo did not have a factory EGR set up in that era. Kind of weird that the link sort of references that. I'd be more inclined to believe the intake portion of the manifold was warped making a lean mixture and thus detonating. Common failure in my experience.

    B18 SU Manifold

    That's what typically happens when I speculate.:doh: I do remember someone doing a 3-carb set up on a B30 that had that style manifold but obviously for its 6-cyl engine. Maybe that's what I was thinking of.

    B18 SU Manifold

    Here are my guesses. I'd say it is a 1968 B18 intake manifold with pre-1968 carburetors. Thus... #1 is a vacuum port for the distributor. Pretty sure North American 1968 B18B and B18Ds did not have a vacuum distributor. #2 are the auxiliary butterflies as described by JohnMc. #3 I think is...

    B230 oil cap on b20

    What is the "oil filter hole on the manifold" that you're referring to? Maybe the PCV nipple?

    B20 backfires without choke

    Start with the basics. That is a simple engine (assuming a B20B). You only need fuel, spark and compression. Do a compression test. What have you done to "check the ignition"? Does it still have points or has it been upgraded to a pointless ignition? Check the fuel pressure at the carbs...

    Classic wagon vs Hundai Elantra

    I suspect we'll be seeing a "Volvo Appraisal Help Needed" thread in OT soon. :( Looks like a hard hit. Nice to hear your doing better every day.

    740 Noisy fan clutch - Aisin brand any good?

    Good call. Your comment reminded me why the A/C guy grabbed the fan. Something about the pressure and it wasn't cooling enough. Once the fan clutch locked up, everything was ok. Still seemed kind of dumb to grab the fan while the car was running to check it. Re. and extra electric fan, my 745...
