Well, I did my homework and found out that the 1 inch mastercylinder is grossly mismatched with the Volvo calipers. A volvo mastercylinder has a bore of 9/16 for the front and 5/8 for the rear!
Luckily enough a Volvo mastercylinder fits the powerbooster with some minor adjustment.
Now the brakes seems to be ok, but the pedal ratio of 3.5:1 might be a bit low.
But the brake pads and rotors are brand new and I have not tried it out on the
highway yet. But at least I am on the right track.

The Nova project is moving forward, albeit slowly due to a high workload in my little shop.
Right now i have received the radiatorsupport from the painter and is in the process of fittting a new passenger door and new front fenders. I also fabricated new rubber mounts for the radiator to prevent it from cracking due to heat expansion and chassis flex.
And for some strange reason I am unable to upload pictures to the forum right now.

Nice update, Goran! We've corrected some errors on the forum today, maybe try the attachments again and see if they work.

Looking forward to seeing your progress!

A little history and trivia.

These small decals on the vent window tells a little about the Novas history.
The red decal to the left adverties that this vehicle is protected by an aftermarket
Waso steering lock. Those locks where quite common during the sixties, and often installed by the dealers on imported cars.
The sticker on the right tells that this car has passed the annual safety inspection in 1974 and will be due for inspection in 1975 again.
The windowstickers where replaced by a sticker on the licenseplate in 1975.
The new sticker was issued after the vehicle passed inspection and the
roadtax was payed. This sticker was in use until 2010 when it was dropped.

The stock mountingscrews for the driverside doormirror was installed (Without the mirror) and painted over since the rigid stock US mirrors was illegal as they where deemed unsafe for pedestrians.
And the normal mountingpoint for outside mirrors in europe where on the fender.
The stock rigid mirrors are still technically illegal, but noone really cares about that on classicvehicles.
