    I need it to find the spec of the splines, as i need to make a crank for my motor, and a part number will save some coin
    Hello Paul - We're looking forwards to the updates, I can't help with the part number but I normally search on Skandix which gives volvo equivalent part numbers based on VIN when you look for a part, hope this works for you:

    Turns out i dont need to make a crank, as a bloke in finland s advised it can take over 1000 bhp, and 1200NM of torque, so i will be fine,

    At the minute some pistons are been made at a place in york, very helpful people,
    Conrods i can source in USA, as i said earlier i want to do bottom end first, and top end next.

    Some pictures of repairs to back end of body, roof, rear windows etc...

    My mate blasted over said areas, so we know what we ve got
    Not pretty at all


    Repair round window, we needed to make a piece to sit in, and make up what d disappeared.






    We also made our steering up, so now it steers !

    We used some bmw column, and some volvo amazon column, and it works perfectly,

    The column itself need to be lower than its original position, as our bmw bulkhead determined so, its angle was too steep, and put unnecessary strain on it, so we put in its optimum position, we also managed to fit its dashboard back in.

    A few more.....

    Its just mocked up and will be welded up properly, we just wanted to make it work, and it does brilliantly, obviously it will be bmw power steering, but none of it is piped up yet.

    A couple more...

    We removed all the track that the rubber sits in round boot area.

    It was rotten in places, and rusty on underside, plus you can buy new stuff,

    So i purchased some for later.



    My friend skillfully made me a repair panel for my rear window, as it was a lot worse than the opposite side.

    Ive been ill and not done a lot, we ve started to repair all 4 doors, and my motors been modified as we speak, i needed some rods and pistons, plus a nice turbo, ive acquired all above parts, and we will slowly be back on bodywork.

    Will put some pictures asap, ive not posted for a bit, its moved on since my last post !

    Ive done my bottom end first, once my top end is done, we can take it for its manifolds, inlet and turbo.
