A customer from just over the border in Belgium asked me to look at their very rare vintage Volvo P210 van. The front end was very sloppy and giving up from serious knocking noises. Upon inspection it was determined the whole front end suspension needed rebuilding, however the major noise was from a collapsed clutch assembly. The customer asked for “whatever it needs”.

This old motor was given new suspension components, braking system, all new bushes throughout. The transmission was dropped and cleaned, a new clutch kit fitted and finally the prop/driveshaft “doughnut” was replaced.

I really enjoyed working on this rare classic which has been given a superb paint job previously.
