Well elgatosunrise...hopefully your reply was unnecessary, since that thread stopped having posts entered in 2009. Hopefully, he has made it there and back...many many times. :-)

Re: Cooling problem solved now what's wrong with my tach?

Could you possibly reverse the original fix (replaced sender, etc.) and see if the tach problem still exists? If not, your answer could be in the incompatible or defective replacement parts.

Re: Things lost in the water

One time I lost one of those folding/collapsing metal-tube & cloth chair like things. I'm sure someone probably found it and it is now sitting on someone's sister's porch somewhere. :-)

Re: Parting Out Volvo MD7A

Hey Stuart. You don't happen to have the original alternator do you? I need the pulley off one. If you have the original sev marchal pulley, it should have a 5" diameter, or so, pulley on it.
