SKANDIX News https://www.skandix.de/en/news/ News regarding Volvo, Saab, Rallyesport, Spareparts, Events as well as Press releases from SKANDIX. en_US Mon, 23 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0100 Mon, 23 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0100 240 Locking motor soft top Saab 900 https://www.skandix.de/en/news/locking-motor-soft-top-saab-900/2022/
Conversion kit locking motor 5. bow Saab 900 (94-)

SKANDIX again offers a kit to replace the locking motor for the fifth bow in the soft top of early Saab 900/2 convertibles.

Vehicles up to chassis number V7010305 have the old version of the locking motor, which has a rather unstable rack and pinion guide. This was replaced by a reliable new version by Saab from chassis number V7010306. This is much better due to its design, stuck racks (as shown in the right picture) are technically no longer possible here.

In the left picture you can see the new version.




The old design is often unreliable despite intensive care and correct adjustment, and gear racks stuck in the drive are not uncommon. This is particularly costly to repair when the 5th bow is locked.

At that time Saab had a conversion kit for convertibles with the old version in its programme, but this has not been available for some time.

For vehicles with the early version we now offer this conversion kit, which contains everything necessary for the installation.

advantages:

  • reliable locking of the 5th bow in the soft top
  • complete set for converting the old version to the new one
  • simple conversion
  • maintenance-free drive

For Saab 900 II Cabrio (from 94) up to vehicle identification no. V7010305

You can find the conversion kit under article no. 1079174 in our webshop

Brake power regulator for Volvo 700, 850, 900, S90/V90 available again https://www.skandix.de/en/news/brake-power-regulator-for-volvo-700-850-900-s90v90-available-again/2008/
The brake force regulators for the Volvo Youngtimer 700, 850, 900 and S90/V90 series have been reissued.

Old brake power regulators tend to have incorrect brake force distribution, as they can be clogged by deposits, dirt or old brake fluid. The springs of the valves can also get tired. In rare cases even leaks are possible.

The regulators have not been available as original parts or on aftermarket for a long time.

Unlike in the past, the new parts now available are coated black, which protects the surface from corrosion. The brake force regulator is pre-adjusted by the manufacturer to suit the vehicle and is delivered ready for installation.

Advantages:

  • Guarantees correct brake force distribution
  • repair of the complete brake system with new parts is possible again
  • no dangers from deposits in old parts
  • no problems with corroded or damaged threads for the brake line connections
  • with corrosion-inhibiting surface coating

Volvo Terror Tractor https://www.skandix.de/en/news/volvo-terror-tractor/2009/

What does the Swedish farmer do when he is bored? He builds a B21ET engine from a Volvo 240 Turbo into his tractor and speeds over the field with it...

The video of the tractor racing Volvo Terror has become a classic on YouTube with over 38 million views. Even the Swedish brewery Carlsberg has used a clip of it as an advertisement for a lemonade.

Unfortunately, its builder Rickard Nilsson died in 2017.
An obituary for him and his work as well as numerous pictures of events keep the memory alive on his Facebook page.

Propeller shaft nut washer https://www.skandix.de/en/news/propeller-shaft-nut-washer/2018/
This threaded plate is used on the propshaft flange instead of nuts, which is particularly advantageous for the Volvo PV due to the limited space available. Compared to mounting with nuts, mounting is simplified. By placing both screws before tightening, it is not necessary to hold the flange with a spanner.

The larger contact area on the flange allows a better distribution of force, which makes distortion of the flange almost impossible, especially in higher performance vehicles. Constructively, it is also no longer possible for the screw connections to loosen themselves due to vibrations.

The threaded plate was originally installed in early Volvo Amazon and Volvo PV. However, it can also be used on all Volvo classic cars with 44.5 mm propeller shaft diameter, such as the Volvo P1800, Volvo 140, Volvo 200 and Volvo 700.

Advantages:

  • simple installation, no need to hold it up against the wall
  • secure screw connection, cannot come loose
  • better force distribution on the flange, therefore more stable

The threaded plate is now available under article number 1079471 in the SKANDIX webshop.

Suitable accessories:

New blower motor available for Volvo PV https://www.skandix.de/en/news/new-blower-motor-available-for-volvo-pv/2007/
The blower motor for Volvo PV544 and P210 Duett model from 1962 onwards is now available as a new part under SKANDIX article number 1079744.

Up to now the fan motors were only available as refurbished used parts. This newly produced interior fan replaces all previous replacement or repair solutions.

In case of a defective blower, the windows fog up and the vehicle interior does not get warm. Often old fan motors also make unpleasant noises. These problems can now be easily remedied.

The newly manufactured part is a complete heater/ventilation fan for 12V vehicle electrical systems. The quiet running fan motor is delivered complete with mounting plate, fan wheel and connection material. This allows an easy assembly: Simply loosen the screws, remove the plug, screw in the new part and plug it in, ready!

Advantages:

  • No return of old parts needed
  • Easy installation due to ready-assembled blower
  • Original connection material / plug connection can be used
  • Full blower performance with smooth running characteristics

Suitable for:

  • Volvo PV544 from 1962 onwards

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

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
