Volvo 142 16V b230

Planning to turn my ocean green Volvo 142 into a clean rust free 16v B230 mildly tuned car that?ll keep up with traffic and do well on long adventures to discover surf around the Baltic in Sweden in style. Any tips are welcome in both Swedish or English. budget to the build is 100k Kronor. We?ll see where that gets me.

After running into many parts that didn’t fit in the car I’m glad to say that I’m finally making some progress again. One of the main issue was the engine mounts, I had a pair custom made which ended up not fitting properly. The second pair ended up working perfectly except that with the engines new position the brake cylinder no longer fits. Also having some exhaust fitment issues, but that’ll be handled by a guy I know that builds custom exhaust.

Another issue was fitting the M47 transmission. Had to use a special Adapter plate to get the transmission sit vertically instead of the stock slant. Was easier than hunting down the mythical m45/B20 bellhouse that cost fortune. The tunnel also needed to be widened which I found a way to do with out dropping the engine and transmission.

On the upside I received some widened wheels from Axelssons Restore AB that look pretty awesome. Check out the picks below.
