      This is how the tank looks like now:



      I guess the part below is some form of fuel pressure regulator? It sure does not operate as a filter. Its in the rear next to the fuel pump in the tank assembly.

      I also need a new air cleaner to air intake hose - I think it comes attached to the air cleaner cover.

      First, here is a link to zillion Volvo 142 parts by Volvo Part Number...

      http://volvoonderdelen.com/140142144/

      ...just for you.

      Please use this link to share the Volvo Part Numbers for the items you seek.

      Now on the ATE brake calipers, etc.

      Below are links for the various ATE brake components that apply to your 1974 142.

      Each link shows the Volvo Part Number for that specific item, for example...

      http://volvoonderdelen.com/140142144...For-Volvo-936/

      ...is the LF ATE brake caliper (exchange/core) with Volvo Part Number 34334.

      Now you can take this search query...

      volvo 34334 caliper

      ...here...

      http://images.google.com/advanced_image_search?hl=en

      ...to get these results...

      http://images.google.com/search?as_s...Goaw2QXRw639Dg

      Now pause over each picture of a caliper to view the web site for that pic.

      After about, oh, 15-21 years you will be able to tell which web sites are legit and which are otherwise.

      Once you see a canditate for further investigation right-click on the pic and open in a new window then click on web site for this image.

      As the years go by you will notice that active USA-based outlets for Classic Volvo Parts are mostly sourcing stuff from outside the USA then marketing same on the internet.

      Shipping to Houston from Sweden (and back for cores) for 20lbs of Volvo parts can get $$$ in short order.

      BTAIM, consider a visit to your local franchise parts houses during slow traffic and enlist a computer-savvy counterperson to fire up their data base and search for local alternatives.

      Hello. Hello! Wake up!

      Many thanks George, have you had experience with Volvo Onderdelen? I found VP Auto Parts a while back, they seem to have more of the earlier cars though, but they are being helpful:

      Before you order parts from overseas post your Volvo Part Number(s) in this thread and we will do due diligence in finding a USA outlet.

      For example, this exact-fit rear/right re-man brake caliper is available store-pickup in Houston...

      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBRHYAMS_____

      ...but probably not on the shelf (enter your ZIP to see availability). Call your nearby store to order.

      More?

      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBRHYAMS_____

      Right/Front ATE caliper for cars with solid rotor...

      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBRHYAMS_____

      Left/Front solid rotor...

      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBRHYAMS_____

      Right/Front vented rotor...

      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBRHYAMS_____

      Left/Front vented rotor...

      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBRHYAMS_____

      Rear ATE pads...

      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBRCOAMS_____

      More pads...

      http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/se...974&make=Volvo

      If possible, make full confirmation that your car has all-ATE brake components and also determine solid or vented rotors.

      Thanks.

      The device that you showed in the picture that is NOT a filter is fuel pressure reservoir. (I'm sure that there is another name for it that escapes me at the moment) but it helps keep fuel pressure up when the pump is not running or at times of very heavy demand. It contains a diaphragm and a spring.
      Cason Grover in Nashville may have some spare FI parts - I sold a bunch of them to him a year or so ago.

      I have the opportunity to buy some interior. It is the orange interior that came in the limited CA edition. It is intended for the 142. Now, given that my car is not the 113 Orange, but rather the "Dark Yellow" 116, if you were me, would you add this interior and take off the brown one this one came with? I had bought a dye set to redo my covers in the dark brown, but I'm leaning towards this fit.

      Been away from the board awhile. The car's resto is going on forward, not as fast as I wanted for no other reason that I am a bit busy on work. Here is how the car is coming along:

      The body was fully repaired, all rust cancer removed and replaced with metal, VERY hard to find replacement fenders installed. New door cards and California edition orange upholstery is being installed.

      Now I did have the original automatic transmission rebuilt, but I noticed it leaked a lot in the body shop. I wonder if you can fit a newer automatic transmission from say a 240?

      Let me know. Thanks!

      Also, anyone know where to source a good replacement windshield seal? No NOS or OEM to be found for a 1974 142. So anyone know of a good JC Whitney remedy?

      All I can say is the windshield on my 74 144 is glued in place with urethane. I am surprised your car uses a seal.

      I think that that changed in 1974. If you see in your picture, you have clips circumventing your windshield, it appears you are actually missing the seal and the chrome trim.

      Yes, the metal trim snaps right onto those clips and that's all there's to it.

      Maury Thibodeaux in Owasso, OK, fitted an AW71 to his 1800ES and I think the major operation was to machine and weld the bellhousing so that it stands straight up instead of leaning at an angle, which would be the case on any 240 tranny except for the B20-equipped 1975, which are fairly rare.

      Thank you Walrus, would there be a write up of this fit? Mine is a B20F engine from 1974, original in car. So you say that a 1975 240 tranny would fit my car?

      Maury designed an adapter and had a machine shop fab it up. He did not cut and weld the bell housing.

      A '75 transmission would bolt right up, but it's no different than what you have now. What you want is the AW70 or AW71 trans that started in the early '80s (not sure what the first year was). In the interim, there was the BW55 trans, which is not much better than the BW35 used on B20s.

      Hey Kare, you wouldn't know where I can find some ten of those clips would you? Mine in the bottom are all rusted off and won't hold the trim anymore.

      Unfortunately I don't. I would try the usual suspects, like Volvo 165 in Tucson, maybe Walrus here on the forum has some? I also got some parts several years ago from Howie Silverman (I think that his name..).

      Volvo 142 now has a stepbrother. I hope you like him.

      Slowly but surely my 142 is coming along. Lost my slot for the upholstery shop, so I am waiting on them. I had to get dye to make vinyl pieces for the car upholstery. If it wasn't for VP Auto I'd just leave the old worn out upholstery in place. If anyone can help me in photographing how their K-Jet setup '74 Volvo 140 is under gas tank, where the fuel pump, regulator, etc, hook up, it would be much appreciated. Having leaks and issues with the fueling even when I had the fuel injector distributor rebuilt.

      Oh, by the way, my 142 now has a stepbrother awaiting in the garage. They better be friends even if they have different last names! Its a 1971 SAAB Sonett III all stock and in survivor condition with no rust issues whatsoever.

      Looking good!

      Where did you source the new interior/door/glass pieces?

      What shop in Houston is doing the interior? Headliner?

      Did you make the March 16 Meet at the Volvo dealer?

      Hi George:

      I had all the glass already and was fine, I bought the setting tabs for the windshield through Volvo of UK. The headliner is fine actually, the upholstery and door cards I bought what I could from VP Auto through Johan its US rep. I did not make Volvofest, the prior upholsterer was a total fraud, in fact turns out he was scamming people throughout Dallas and Fort Worth and now has criminal case against him. I ended up taking my car to ASM which is the shop that does everything for the Fast 'N Loud TV show, yes Sue does some of my work and I should have always taken this car to her to begin with.

      I live North of Houston but I rather have my cars worked on in Dallas, TX. I just know more people there for this. Houston is a bit overpriced for auto restoration in my opinion. Maybe to many metal welding and rust abatement jobs due to this being a major port city along with being an oil industry town.

      Just a few finishes and hickups to repair and the car will be ready. Maybe sometime along the road I may end up switching the car to a manual transmission, we'll see.

      One of the hickups is that one of the fuel injector lines is leaking from the nylon hose fitment. I guess I could cut it and reinstall it. But its a big pain to cut those nylon lines. For now just a small metal belt to avoid problems in the upholstery shop.

      Restoration is in final stages. Few questions.

      Car is now fully drive-able. I have added a lot of things to this car. I will take time to list all of it later.

      Car is being wet sanded and polished as we speak, after touch ups and what not.

      Paint used is PPG DCC Concept. The interior was done using OEM NOS upholstery bits bought from VP Auto. As not all pieces were available they were stitched up by ASM in Dallas (by Sue from Fast 'N Loud show). I'm a client from long before.

      I'm having a few issues I hope you can guide me a bit.

      Horns aren't working. I hear that they try to sound but they fall short. They used to work fine. I'm guessing it maybe the relay or a fuse?

      Also, the battery was drained but we recharged it. The "AMP" light won't turn off even when the keys are out.

      When in reverse, the seatbelt bell warning sound will keep working even if you are wearing the seatbelt, what could this be?

      The brake failure light is on, but the brakes are working fine. No issues with the cylinder, or anything. Would it be a stop light bulb gone bad?

      Any items you can help me with will be greatly appreciated!

      Regards
