I'll dig up this thread and post again when the first few (which I'll probably assemble) are done. There's no need for the DD box; this one does both rate conversion and driver functions ....

I solved this problem with a small circuit to drive the gas tach directly from a "W" terminal signal. The prototype was done with a Dakota Digital unit doing the pulse rate conversion and t ...

I'm having the exact same problem. In my case, it looks like there is probably a pinhole in the rear heater core since I can smell anti freeze when I first run the rear heater fan. I just replaced t ...

Hey Tim,

I guess the main reason I put the tank outside is because I use the inside, under-seat storage for tools & spare parts. Also, I'm sure at some point I'd be spilling veggie all over th ...

As others have mentioned; you're in for some shift linkage re-work. I just did sort of the reverse of what you're looking at: Pulled a 5-speed from the 1.6TD w/ "rearward" mounting and rep ...

Any pics of the water/air intercooler setup? Thinking about changing my current air/air setup to reduce the pipe length from turbo to manifold. Custom or off-the-shelf?

Looks great!

Tnx,

Hey,

Thanks for the reply; much appreciated.

I had to get my intake up away from the ground. I clogged my filter in about 3 weeks once we moved to the new place at the end of the 2 mile dusty r ...

Hi Dan,

I've got an Autometer Sport Comp Digital gauge with the probe pre-turbo as Andrew suggested. I also have a Saab intercooler in the DS tail-light but I need to cut out some metal on the bot ...

Is 18-20 psi a "safe" level for this motor? I'm trying to get ready for a couple of road trips and don't really want to do a head gasket job at this point in time. I guess the variable geo ...

Yes; intercooled & EGT. Not quite sure which turbo but looks like stock. Came from Germany via "Quality" German Auto in So. Cal. and I think was originally in a Vanagon/T ...

Hi all,

Any suggestions on optimal setting for the wastgate adjustment screw on the 1.6TD motors? The stock setting ran about 9 psi max and the low-rpm response was very good. I cranked it in som ...

I would think your choice would be *either* A/C or P/S depending on what you have for room over on the passenger's side. My van already had P/S when it was a gasser so I kept the pump and made a brac ...

If you're doing this on the super-cheap, there are definitely mid '80s Volvos that have the same Hall sensor plate and connector. Not sure exactly which ones ... Takes some time since you have to di ...

Another good thing to use for foil repair is wire-wrap wire. Radio Shack used to stock it but no more ... It is 30 ga. tinned with a fairly tough, heat-proof insulation (Kynar, I think ...). I sold ...

Hmmm. Might try looking in Home Depot, etc. at those rubber connectors they have in the plumbing section. I just used them on my intercooler to make a 2-1/2 to 3 inch transition. Maybe you could so ...

All my testing so far was done on the lowest power setting. I haven't completely given up on the spool gun. Higher feed rate sure might help. I'm also going to try a three-sided mova ...

You're right on the money Tom. An in-tank heat exchanger that is paralleled with the heater core seems to be the most popular set up. Both the exchangers I have now are copper but on the new tank, w ...
