Happy Thanksgiving everyone! The 740 gobble-gobbled some cold air to and from Sacramento today

The door inserts have been separating and faliing apart. Disassembled them today and applied new adhesive. Next up on the interior is an aftermarket driver seat

Cleaning out the parts bin and found these bits. This is for the newer Volvo tuners, but these are the parts from my "gutted airbox". The air is still traveling through the original path, but the restrictions are removed that work well for my car here in central California

So I gave the 744 some love, and now it's making a concerning noise in the bottom end..Might be time to part it out and put all the goodies in the wagon.

If the motor is hurt, I will probably just part the 1990 specific parts out so some other poor sap can keep his on the road

I had a series of broken alternator tensioner bolts, kept replacing them until one day the car died as I pulled into my driveway and the car died, popped the hood and the alternator was laying on the battery, that big ass aluminum bracket on the drivers side for the alternator and AC BROKE IN HALF!!!! Take it off and closely examine it for cracks. The flexing when it starts cracking breaks the tension bolts

I had a couple PS pump tensioner bolts snap in succession in my 242. I decided to put a stop to that.

Bought one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Alternator-...L/382459019508
Much bigger bolt solved the problem.

Cleaned the interior of the 744. Not a bad place to be when it's kept up

Looking good man!

Is the checkered cloth something rare? I once bought a 80something 740 turbo for parts that came with those seats and door trims. I had originally planned to use the cloth for the door trim on my 944 but years have passed. The seats were pretty bad but I’ve still got enough cloth to upholster atleast 4 door trims if you’re interested.

It seems to be less common than black or tan leather interiors around here, but I don't think it's especially rare. There are red and blue variations of the checkered interior, but I haven't been able to find one yet. Do want a red setup

Had a CEL come on. Error coded indicated a bad injector. Uncapped the stock ones and put them back in. Light is off, car is still making sounds...I don't beat on it so who knows

So the 744's time has finally come. The tags are up, and it feels right to move on to something I actually want to build. The wagon looks like a brodozer now
