This B30 was a straight-6 automobile engine produced by Volvo Cars starting in 1969, and used in the company's 164 sedan from 1969 through 1975. It was also used in the Volvo C303 military vehicle. Other uses included marine, industrial and agricultural applications. It was a robust pushrod engine using timing gears and displaced 3.0 L (2978 cc/181 in³). Basically it's a B20 with two added cylinders. Output ranged from 130 hp (97 kW) with the B30A equipped with two Zenith-Stromberg 175CD2SE sidedraught CD carburetors Cool

It is a inline four cylinder push rod motor with two carburetors and painted red. Iam not sure what a sidedraught is. so it must be this B20. acording to the drawings on volvo's website it dosn't have an oil cooler eather. Is that on purpose? Thanks again for your time sorry I was short on what info I had.
