hey, just scored my first volvo, a 67 amazon estate, white in color, mostly original, 4spd, and 2 carbs.
so i've got a question about the carbs. they're fluid filled, have a dipstick (or something similar). when i rebuild, what fluid goes in the carbs? and i'm not talking about the gas! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)
also is there anything i should know going into these carbs? secrets people have learned from doing it a hundred times in the past... i've done my fair share of dirt and street bike carbs, a rochester, and some holley's, but these are swedish parts...unfamiliar to me!
thanks for any advice

so, i got it...rebuilt both hs6's, added synth. atf, and she runs great. drove to the closest town (60 mi round trip), with no problems, she ran great
gotta say though, the toyota forum folk are much more helpful,...but that's ok, i've found some great advice from other topics off of this forum, thank you all again
