Volvo b230 engine
Hi guys.
Saw an old post on this forum regarding some guys having or using volvo b230 redblock engines in their busses.

Can someone please point me in their direction or any other direction where I find such an engine. I own a volvo 940 estate and it desperately needs an engine. It has the turbo variant b230fk/ft.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Marius.

Hi Marius

I dont know where you are based , but if you are in CT are Mikes place would probably be a good start

Else you would probably have to try source one overseas - is a rebuild not an option

Hi, no I cant rebuild as the head is warped too badly and pistons can't be sourced locally.
I did try Mikes place some while ago but they only stock the newer motors.
