Volvo 9995270 Oil Pressure Gauge Set

Somewhere in Volvo arcana exists a pretty neat little item. It’s an oil pressure gauge set in a wood box sold decades ago.

They still exist and you can pick one up on eBay for around $125. I just now saw another on Facebook for 150 Euros. Look for a complete set with all the fittings that adapt to the different redblock engine ports.

They came with a great little diagram printed to the inside of the box that shows which attachment you need for which engine. This would have covered Volvos from the 1960s to the 1990s with the famous Volvo 4-cylinder engine.

Probably the most interesting thing about them — to me anyway — is the hinged wooden box the kits were sold in. How cool and old-school is that?!
