Carburettor SU HS6: Retrofit safe float chamber venting https://www.skandix.de/en/news/carburettor-su-hs6-retrofit-safe-float-chamber-venting/2004/
A safety upgrade for your SU HS6 dual carburettor system is now available from SKANDIX.

With our set 1079790 you can upgrade the float chamber vent of SU HS6 carburettors to new float chamber covers with hose connections, where the fuel is drained off in a controlled manner via a drain hose in case of float chamber overflow.

In contrast to this, in some SU HS6 carburettors the float chamber ventilation is simply done through a small hole in the float chamber cap. Here, in the event of a carburettor overflow, the petrol runs over the carburettors and then drips onto the hot manifold and exhaust - fire hazard!

As a "side effect" of the conversion offered by SKANDIX, the formation of vapour bubbles is much less problematic and the larger bleed nipples do not clog so quickly.




Suitable for all classic Volvo models with B18 or B20 engine and SU HS-6 dual carburettor system, e.g:

  • Volvo PV544
  • Volvo 120, 130, 220 Amazon
  • Volvo 140
  • Volvo P1800 Jensen
  • Volvo P1800S

Retaining sleeve for drain hose water overflow fan housing for Volvo Amazon and P1800 https://www.skandix.de/en/news/retaining-sleeve-for-drain-hose-water-overflow-fan-housing-for-volvo-amazon-and-p1800/1976/
The retaining sleeve for the drain hose of the blower box / heat exchanger box is available immediately from SKANDIX under article number 1078808.

The sleeve is missing on most cars. When the drain hose is replaced, it is often broken or lost. This part was never available as a single spare part at Volvo.

Without the sleeve the drain hose is difficult to install, because it can't be locked firmly in the heat exchanger box. This is very annoying during installation because the hose slips out of the blower box when passing through the cardan tunnel.

Suitable for:

  • Volvo 120, 130, 220 "Amazon" from 1959 on
  • Volvo P1800 Jensen, P1800S, P1800E, P1800ES

You can find the drainage hose itself in our shop under article number 1016665.

V8 Volvo with a two-stroke home-made boat engine https://www.skandix.de/en/news/v8-volvo-with-a-twostroke-homemade-boat-engine/2000/
Attention: Put on your earmuffs!!
Two crazy Swedes have installed an Evinrude 300XP V8 outboard engine in a Volvo Amazon.

It must have been a few more beers until Henrik Söderlund and Morgan Gerdin came up with the crazy idea to install a 400 hp boat engine with 3.6 litre capacity in an old Volvo 120 Amazon. By chance the removed engine was hanging in the garage next to the old Volvo for maintenance and a few drinks later the two had a clear picture of how to bring the two machines together.

After a few adjustments and equipped with some oversized 33×10.5 inch drag slicks the vehicle looks good and sounds even better.

Some spectacular photos of the project can be seen on their Facebook page and in the richly illustrated report at "CarExpert" - please refer to the links. The YouTube videos, which are also linked, give a good impression of how the vehicle performs on the road at full throttle.

Have fun with it!

Intake path extension for SU HS6 and HIF6 carburettors https://www.skandix.de/en/news/intake-path-extension-for-su-hs6-and-hif6-carburettors/1971/
An intake path extension for SU HS6 and SU HIF6 carburettors is available at SKANDIX with part number 1075837.

The distance blocks extend the intake path by 40 mm and fit both SU HS-6 and SU HIF-6 dual carburettor systems. They have two effects on the engine:

  • The motor torque is increased.
  • The carburettors are thermally better decoupled from the cylinder head.

Manufactured from modern plastic, the spacers are resistant to temperature and petrol. Extended stainless steel studs including nuts and washers are included.

The length of the original throttle linkage is sufficient, it only needs to be readjusted. The return springs of the carburettors may have to be lengthened a little.

At Volvo suitable for all classic cars with B18B, B18D, B20B or B20D engine:

  • Volvo PV444, PV544 "Humpback", P445, P210 "Duett"
  • Volvo 120, 130, 220 "Amazon"
  • Volvo 140
  • Volvo P1800

Stop lever for glove compartment Volvo 700 and 900 available again https://www.skandix.de/en/news/stop-lever-for-glove-compartment-volvo-700-and-900-available-again/1996/
The glove box stop levers for the Volvo 740, 760, 780 and 940 have been rebuilt by SKANDIX.

So after the original spare part has expired, there is finally a repair possibility with new parts. A flap opened without a stop lever can damage the hinge and the inner lining. The glove box has two stop levers. If one of both levers is defective, the second one is loaded more heavily and therefore breaks down faster.

The new part is made according to the original sample and comes with a stop buffer.
You can find it in our shop under article number 1032797.

Suitable for:

  • Volvo 740, 760, 780
  • Volvo 940

Around the world in vintage Volvos - Amazon Adventures Travels https://www.skandix.de/en/news/around-the-world-in-vintage-volvos-amazon-adventures-travels/1993/
Amazon Adventures Travels offers a special opportunity to combine the love for old Volvos with wanderlust and the desire to travel. The Dutch tour operator has a special repertoire of guided tours to faraway countries, which are carried out with your own Volvo classic cars.

This year, due to the Corona pandemic, the planned tours unfortunately cannot take place as planned. All the more reason to look forward to new adventures in 2021, when the motto again is: "Go where no one has gone before. Do what others say they can't!"

So first enjoy the atmospheric pictures of past journeys and then learn more about the history and the motto of "Amazon Adventures Travels".



About Amazon Adventures Travels

Amazon Adventures organizes unusual trips with vintage cars to unique destinations. Across the Amazon, along the Silk Road to Beijing and back through Russia, collecting snow on the way to the North Cape. Travelling with Amazon Adventures means that you can enjoy the adventure with ease. Shipment of your classic car, overnight stays, breakfast and dinner, but also a medical team and mechanics. Everything is arranged to make your trip to this unique destination truly unforgettable.

Love for adventure and vintage cars

Imagine a caravan of classic cars driving through the Brazilian jungle. A Volvo Amazon, a Jaguar MKII and a Lagonda, followed by an Austin Healey, pull a red cloud of dust behind them. Miles and miles across the Sahara, cruising along the coast of Australia and soaring in the mountains around the Russian Lake Baikal. Experiencing such adventures together with your partner or friends creates stories that you will tell for years to come. On the way there you will meet like-minded people. Entrepreneurs, doctors, pensioners and adventurers who want to experience such a journey once in their life. They all have two things in common: the love of vintage cars and the hunger for adventure.

Let as many people as possible experience this adventure

The uniqueness of Amazon Adventures' trips is their length. The Trans Asia Classic, for example, is the longest rally ever organised, with over 25,000 kilometres. That is unique! For us it is important to make these adventures possible for as many people as possible. In recent years, more than 1200 cars have driven over 80,000 kilometres with us. And there have been some obstacles on the way: cars in the crash barrier, exploded engines and broken gearboxes. But no one has ever stopped. All of them made it to the finish line after a few nights of hard work with the support of our technical team. And that is the most important thing.

Volvo Amazon 122s never misses a trip.

There is one classic car that has had all the adventures so far: Klaas Postma's Volvo Amazon 122 from 1966. Klaas and his brother Fred organised the first rally with classic cars in 1995. This trip in honour of the 25th anniversary of the Volvo Classic Association took them via Sweden to the North Cape. The love for travelling and classic cars passed from Klaas to his son Peter, who experienced his first trip with Amazon Adventures in 2008. Peter now works full-time at Amazon Adventures, together with a team of travel experts, mechanics and other professionals to organize at least two unforgettable trips a year.

Light Amazon Adventures: meet new friends

The journeys of Amazon Adventures are "easy going". You reach destinations you never expected. On the way you meet new friends and experience unforgettable adventures together. Amazon Adventures is open to everyone, the only condition is that you own a vintage car with passion. We take care of the rest! Take a quick look at the upcoming special tours and sign up for the next adventure.

Repair kit for Airfilter housing clamp https://www.skandix.de/en/news/repair-kit-for-airfilter-housing-clamp/1990/
A repair solution for defective air filter box clamps on Volvo 200, 300, 700, 900 and S90/V90 series vehicles is now available from SKANDIX.

Almost everyone who has driven Volvos of these series for a longer time knows the problem: The clips for the cover of the airfilter housing simply tear off at some point.
The air filter housings are no longer available as new parts and up to now you had to make do with unsightly solutions such as cable ties or binding wire.

We now offer an elegant repair solution that looks almost like the original. The new clamps are fastened to the housing with continuous screws, making the repair permanent.

1x SKANDIX 1079199 is a set for repairing one defective clamp.

Suitable for:

  • Volvo 240, 260, 262
  • Volvo 340, 360
  • Volvo 740, 760, 780
  • Volvo 940, 960

True to original clutch set for Saab V4 available again https://www.skandix.de/en/news/true-to-original-clutch-set-for-saab-v4-available-again/1989/
A newly manufactured, true-to-original clutch set for all Saab with V4 engine is now available from SKANDIX.

For a long time only clutches from Sachs were available, for whose use the original flywheel had to be adapted on the lathe.

Our new clutch set fits the original engine without adjustments or additional work. To ensure this, we have had the new edition of the classic claw clutch manufactured according to the NOS pattern (New from old original stock).

You can find the clutch set under article number 1023089 in our webshop.

Advantage:

  • Fits without adjustments to the flywheel

Suitable for all Saab classic cars with the V4 engine:

  • Saab 95, 96
  • Sonnet V4
  • Sonnet III

Alloy rim "Titanium" 17 inch - again available as new Volvo original part https://www.skandix.de/en/news/alloy-rim-titanium-17-inch-again-available-as-new-volvo-original-part/1987/
The legendary, probably most sought-after Volvo alloy wheel of the 850 T5-R is now available again at SKANDIX as a newly manufactured Volvo original part under the article no. 1074609!

The rim is, just like back then, painted in a shimmering grey metallic (colour code 932). This colour goes well with all vehicle colours.
For the hub cap that comes with the wheel, Volvo has chosen a modern silver-coloured one with a 3D logo. However, you can also fit any 64 mm hubcap from Volvo, for example SKANDIX 1011431.

An additional support, a so-called "asymmetrical HUMP", is integrated into the rim. It prevents the tyre from loosening from the rim at low air pressure. This system is normally only available on exclusive racing rims.

Advantages of new rims:

  • Good concentricity. Due to years of use, used aluminium rims usually have severe imbalances, which makes it necessary to mount large balance weights.
  • Perfect optics. The surface of used rims is often damaged and must be repainted at least.

Lower car radio mounting frame for Volvo 200 available again https://www.skandix.de/en/news/lower-car-radio-mounting-frame-for-volvo-200-available-again/1975/
The radio frame to be mounted at the bottom of the dashboard in the 2-series Volvo is now available again from SKANDIX.

Mount the radio in the lower shaft in front of the gear lever, as originally on the GLT and Turbo models. In these models three additional instruments are installed in the upper radio slot. With the radio conversion in the lower shaft, you have the option of retrofitting the additional instruments on all models, or a storage compartment that is more easily accessible when driving.

Such a mounting frame used to be available as an original accessory from the vehicle manufacturer, but it has not been available for many years.
It was only available in the original colour black. We have now had the cover manufactured in three true-to-original colours so that it blends in better with the interior:


1076901
black

1078776
beige

1078775
blue



Advantages:

  • Simple assembly by clicking in, no dismantling of coverings necessary
  • Fits all 1-DIN radios, original and accessories
  • Available in several original colours

Appropriate for:

  • all Volvo 240, 260, 262

Brand new: Durable door catch kit for Volvo P1800 https://www.skandix.de/en/news/brand-new-durable-door-catch-kit-for-volvo-p1800/1981/
A durable door hinge for your Volvo P1800 is now available under SKANDIX article number 1076927.

All spare parts available on the market so far were not very durable and let the door close again unbraked after 100 openings at the latest. This is particularly annoying as the replacement is very costly. The reasons for this are imprecise manufacturing and especially a low quality steel. The parts deform during use in a very short time due to the heavy doors.

In contrast to all other available catch hinges, the new SKANDIX door brakes are precisely manufactured from a hard special steel which does not bend. The springs attached to our hinges are made of high-quality spring steel and do not give way even after frequent use. The quality of our door hinges also surpasses the original.

We deliver a set including a completely new spectacle spring made of high-quality material.

Advantages:

  • Made of hard special steel
  • Long lasting repair solution
  • With springs made of high-quality spring steel

Appropriate for:

  • P1800 Jensen
  • P1800S
  • P1800E
  • P1800ES

New buttons for the belt buckle of Saab 900 and 9000 https://www.skandix.de/en/news/new-buttons-for-the-belt-buckle-of-saab-900-and-9000/1983/
There's always something to do. Classics age gracefully, at best. Some parts become unsightly over the years, and through repeated use. Like the buttons of the seatbelt buckles, which not only wear out, but also get dirty. In which intensity, that depends on the previous owner. There are vehicles which have a beautiful patina after 2 or 3 decades. And others, which are in parts far away from beautiful.

An extreme case is the Anna Project. The leather and carpets could still be cleaned after years of not having been cared for. The door panel on the driver's side was replaced, the steering wheel was reupholstered and the gear knob was replaced. The interior is now well looked after, a touch of pleasant patina has been added. Almost everything is good. Except for the seatbelt buckle buttons. They were much more dirty black than red when the Saab came to me 7 years ago.

Clean it? Not so easy. Because the switches don't have the colour-fast rating. With the use of various cleaners the colour changed more and more into a dingy pink, which is beyond the desired original condition. Since the button belongs on the list of the trivialities they were no longer an issue. I took the strange pink for granted. They still fulfilled their function.

Buttons for belt buckles as replicas

Saab and Volvo specialist Skandix has new push buttons in its program as replicas. An opportunity to improve the interior after years. With a price of 14,90 per piece they are not necessarily a gift, but I am happy about every part that is reproduced for classic Saabs. The delivery is fast as always. Ordered on Thursday, already on Saturday the package is there.


I take the opportunity to tinker briefly with the Saab in the late afternoon. The exchange is quick and can be done in a few minutes, even for untrained people. A small, flat screwdriver is sufficient as a tool, with it the old buttons are removed. The new seatbelt buckle buttons are inserted, click into place audibly, and the job is done. After the first belt buckle, the principle has been recognized, the remaining 4 follow in minute intervals. The reproduction is 100% identical to the original, the fit is perfect.

The result satisfies me. The buttons literally glow in the interior, just like 22 years ago when the Saab was new. Even more important: The last memory of the unloved and unkempt history of the Anna project has disappeared from the interior. It's almost good now, except for the sky. The cover should also be renewed and is on the list for autumn.

Spring clip for Volvo P1800 trunk lid handle https://www.skandix.de/en/news/spring-clip-for-volvo-p1800-trunk-lid-handle/1961/
The retaining clip for the boot handle on the Volvo P1800 Coupé is now available from SKANDIX under item number 1061240.

The part is a spring clip which clamps the handle to the boot lid from below. The screw at the bottom of the trunk handle is only an anti-twist device and not the main fastening.

As this clasp was missing, broken or rusty in some restoration projects, SKANDIX has reissued it. We have kept to the original for the new edition and only changed one detail: The new part is made of stainless material.

Suitable for all Volvo P1800 Coupés:

  • Volvo P1800 Jensen
  • Volvo P1800S
  • Volvo P1800E

Reference number: 664554

Change in value added tax as of 01.07.2020 https://www.skandix.de/en/news/change-in-value-added-tax-as-of-01072020/1977/
In Germany, the amended VAT rate of 16% will be valid from 1st of July 2020 (instead of the previous 19%). This regulation applies until the end of the year. The reduced tax rate - e.g. for books - will change to 5% (instead of the previous 7%).



How do the prices change?

By the lower value added tax the gross prices indicated for you as a consumer in our shop are reduced accordingly.



To whom does the changed value added tax apply?

The new tax rates apply to all goods with delivery address in Germany. If you as a customer order from another European country, the unchanged tax rates/prices there may apply to you. After selecting your country of delivery, the SKANDIX Shop will display the prices valid for you.



What happens if the payment was already made before the deadline?

For the application of the tax rate it depends on when the service is actually performed, in your case the time of delivery. Thus, neither the date of the order, the invoice nor the date of payment is decisive.

From 01.07.2020 we always charge the currently valid rate of 16%, from 01.01.2021 again the rate of 19%.

For your payments made before 01.07.2020 for deliveries after 01.07.2020, you will receive a corresponding credit note for the difference (overpayment) resulting from the changed VAT rate. Conversely, for payments that you make before the end of the year for deliveries after 01.01.2021, the corresponding differences (for underpayments) are then requested subsequently.



Where can I find answers to further questions?

Explanations regarding the temporary reduction of the value added tax can be found on the pages of the Federal Ministry of Finance - please refer to the following link.
