There is a growing enthusiasm for Volvos and PERFORMANCE PARTS for older Volvos.  Many small producers of custom parts have come and gone over the years.  Most suppliers do not survive very long if their products don't sell. 
So if you want to see nice products available in the future like I do, please support these suppliers below. 


If you know of an independent producer of Volvo parts like those shown below or other inventive devices that a Volvo owner would want,
Dave's Volvo Page will be happy to feature it here for FREE.

MORE OLD OR VINTAGE PARTS RESOURCES INFO
A good method to determine if a vintage Volvo part is still available somewhere is to first look it up in gcp.se and find the part number. After you find the part number, you can look that up and see if it's available. Do not always go by information from a US Volvo dealer or volvopartswebstore.com or any of the online catalogs in the US for actual part availability, since sometimes they will say the part is NO LONGER AVAILABLE. I many instances they are wrong. Also online in Sweden you can try CVI Automotive or VP Auto Parts or in Germany try Skandix.com. Often you can find parts there that are not usually found in the U.S.

RALLYE GAUGE RESTORATION AND CUSTOMIZATION
RP-Rsports in Florida will expertly restore vintage Volvo gauges and instrument clusters.  An example of a full restoration of one of these clusters is pictured below.

RP-Rsports has also developed exact reproduction NEW CIRCUIT BOARDS for Volvo 240 R-Sport gauge clusters, 140 GT clusters and 140 Rallye clusters.  The old original circuit boards are rare enough and certainly have not been available for 30-plus years.  The old ones fail often because they get brittle and will crack over the years.  Now you can revive those classic gauge clusters and actually have reliable service with a brand new circuit board.  Testing has found the new ones actually perform better than the original boards did.


RP-Rsports also offers reproduction warning light cel strips for old clusters to replace your faded, cracked and warped ones.

RP-Rsports also creates CUSTOM GAUGE LIGHTING IMPROVEMENTS using LED lighting:  If you have been bothered by dim gauge lighting found in your Volvo gauges, RP-Rsports has been working with LED lights for years to make older Volvo gauges light up really well.  Custom installations in your gauges can be done along with restored  or custom colored too if desired.  Here are a few examples of the work done by RP-Rsports in the past.

SOURCE FOR REBUILT VOLVO STEERING RACKS
SORRY. THIS BUSINESS HAS CLOSED PERMANENTLY.
Jorgen Automotive Corporation has been offering high quality remanufactured Volvo rack and pinion steering racks as long as I can remember. http://www.jorgenauto.com/rack-pinion/volvo.html



Volvo 240 Power Steering Rack Identification Info: Volvo TP 31579/1 (1990 publication) shows both CAM and ZF power steering units being used in 240s from 1976 thru 1990. CAM units were used exclusively in 1975. CAM units had four different types, and ZF had two different types.  In most cases, a CAM (or TRW) rack can be identified by the rubber boot outer end that will narrow down to a small opening where it's clamped to the tie rod.  With a ZF rack, the rubber boot outer end normally clamps to a rubber bushing on the tie rod.  This information is reliant on parts being original. Keep in mind that different boots/tie rods may have been installed over the years.

<<< Here is a ZF rack where a "ZF" mark can be seen after cleaning.

More info here: http://people.physics.anu.edu.au/~amh110/STEERING/steering_camgears_trw.htm

If you can help improve this info, please email.
