LH 2.2 plus EZ117K
NEW FULL CONVERSION ENGINE HARNESS

This is a conversion harness to convert ANY 240 to LH 2.2. It connects to both the engine and ignition points under your hood AND to the engine control modules under your dash. It is designed to use LH 2.2 fuel injection and EZ117K ignition components. An EZK ignition originally came in a 700 series, not in a 240. Volvo put a less desirable Chrysler ignition in the 240 made before 1989. This harness allows you to use the EZK ignition parts.
This is a perfect complement for someone planning to update a K-jet car or install a later turbo or non-turbo Volvo 4 cylinder into an earlier 240.

Harness: LH2.2 +EZK Conversion
Price: $389.00 plus shipping

Volvo 240 LH 2.2 plus EZK full conversion harness.This conversion harness is designed to be used with LOW or HIGH IMPEDANCE fuel injectors.

1.   For Low Impedance Injectors (AKA: low-Z or peak and hold type): This type was original in the Volvo 700/900 TURBO. This harness has a plug where you can plug in a Ballast Resistor Pack if needed. Any standard Volvo 700/900 type resistor pack will be fine.  This way you may use standard fuel injectors from a 700/900 TURBO or any other low-Z injectors.

2. For High Impedance Injectors (AKA: high-Z or saturated type):  This type was originally used in Volvo non-turbos, such as your original injectors found in a 240 non-turbo. This harness will work with these injectors as is with the pictured by-pass plug shown at left IN PLACE. Impedance testing methods for injectors can be found HERE.



An extensive 13 page PDF INSTALLATION GUIDE may be viewed here (1.5 mb pdf):

https://www.davebarton.com/pdf/HarnessLH2.2EZK.pdf

Also you can find Pin-Out Function Diagrams HERE:
https://www.prancingmoose.com/volvoharnesses.html#pinfunctions

EVERYTHING under the hood is a direct PLUG and PLAY.
There are a few wires under the dash that will need connecting. That number depends on how old your 240 is, but it can be up to 5 wires.
More complete and detailed instructions are included in the installation guide.

OVERVIEW OF UNDER-DASH WIRE CONNECTIONS FOR THIS CONVERSION:
The below MALE 4-pole plug will be found on this conversion harness. It's identified as Connector #3 in the installation guide. 
If you already have a 1985-88 240 with LH 2.2, then this plug will plug into the existing FEMALE 4-pole plug in your dash.
Wiring for other circumstances is outlined below, as well as in the Installation Guide.
 
1. Black/Red
    Blue
From ECU, Fuel Pump Relay
If you have an existing 1985–88 LH 2.2 240, plug this connector from the conversion harness into the existing mating plug in your car and these two wires are done.

Connecting to other 240:
  This wire should go to switched power (originating from ignition switch terminal 15), which offers 12v when Ignition Switch in the “RUN” position.  This source may be tapped from the back or INPUT (right) side of fuse 11, 12 or 13 (or fuse 3, 4 or 5 for a 1978 and older 240). Ensure the 12v connection you use also remains powered when the key is turned to the “START” or "CRANK" position. For more information, explanations and images of 240 fuse panels, you can have a look at my 240 Fuse Panel Page.

2. Red
From ECU
If you have an existing 1985-88 LH 2.2 240, plug this connector in and no other changes are needed for this wire.

Connecting to other 240:
  For AC idle increase. Connect to the AC relay 12v output or the 12v trigger circuit that activates the AC compressor clutch.

3. Red/Yellow
From Fuel Pump Relay, O2 Sensor, IAC Valve
If you have an existing 1985-88 LH 2.2 240, plug this connector in and no other changes are needed for this wire.

Connecting to other 240:
  This should be connected to the back or INPUT (right) side of the fuse panel for power to the fuel pumps.  This fuse location is as follows for a 240: 1979-84: Fuse 5.  1985 and later: Fuse 4. Pre-1979 240 does not have a dedicated fuse for the fuel pump, so you may use any fuse not already being used, such as Fuse 10, or you may install a new in-line fuse.
For more information, explanations and images of 240 fuse panels, you can have a look at my 240 Fuse Panel Page.
 
If you need help with achieving proper wiring or understanding for fuel pump circuits, I have a detailed page on 240 Fuel Pump wiring here: Click here for the Fuel Pump Relay Page to see 240 Fuel Pump Relay Diagrams.

If you are converting a 240 Turbo or other K-Jet 240 and you're having trouble visualizing how this circuit powers your pumps, I have a more detailed explanation in my 240 Fuel Pump Page HERE: https://www.240turbo.com/fuelpumprelay.html#LH2.2Fuse5

4. Red/White
From Ignition Powerstage
The original wire going to pin 4 of this plug in a 1985-88 LH 2.2 240 was not used. So Pin 4 on this plug is now used as a tachometer signal wire that is available if you need one for your tachometer or any other device. You may use this wire and connect it to your tachometer signal input spade.   

The below BLUE wire and connector will be found on this conversion harness. It's identified as Connector #5 in the installation guide.

5. Blue
From Ignition Powerstage
This is a power lead for the Ignition. It needs to be extended to a power input, which can be at the fuse panel.  It may be connected at fuse 11, 12 or 13 for any 1979 or later 240 (or you can use 3, 4 or 5 for 1978 and older 240).  The power should provide 12V to the coil and ignition power stage when the ignition key switch is in the “RUN” position. 

 
This harness is designed to allow the use of a MAF Sensor on EITHER side of the engine bay. It may be placed on the left side for non-turbo or the right side for a turbo.  The MAF wire leads on this harness are designed to be long enough to reach either location. 
This harness wiring colors and connectors for this conversion harness are mostly based on a typical 1985-88 240 non-turbo, so it will be almost a direct plug-in under the DASH for those models if you have one.  This harness may be adapted to any year 240, including early 240 models with K-Jetronic injection, any 240 Turbo or any 240 set up for a "+T" conversion. 


QUESTIONS?

What is the difference between LH 2.2 and LH 2.4?
There are a large number of differences

CLICK HERE FOR THIS INFORMATION in the LH 2.4 section below.

Where should I place the LH 2.2 ECU and EZK ICU in my 240 conversion project?
The best place to mount the control units is where the factory placed them for later 240s. Under the right side dash. If you have access to used parts or salvage yards, the original mounting brackets would be a good thing to get. The LH ECU bracket from any 1985-93 240 will work.  The EZK ICU bracket is found in 1989-93 240s.

If you're pulling an EZK box from a 740, you'll find it located under the steering column just to the right of the brake pedal bracket.
Where can I find the pin-out function diagrams for LH 2.2 and EZK 117 control units?
<<< CLICK THIS IMAGE for PDF document (0.8 mb): Pin Function Diagrams specific to THIS CONVERSION HARNESS.

MORE pin function diagrams for K-Jet, LH 2.0, 2.2 and 2.4 systems can be found here: https://www.240turbo.com/volvoharnesses.html#pinfunctions

How do I know if my injectors are low impedance or high impedance?
If you know they are from a non-turbo Volvo 240 or 740, then they are high impedance. Stock 740 Turbo (B230FT) injectors known as "Greentops", are low impedance types. 
You can measure the resistance across the two electrical terminals of the injector. If the resistance is between 1.5 and 4.0 Ohms you have low impedance injectors.  If the resistance is between 8 and 16 Ohms you have high impedance injectors. YouTube Video Here. 
For best results, a set of injectors should be fairly close to each other in an Ohms test.

Great injector info compilation here:  forums.turbobricks.com/26083.
Here are some sites that offers reconditioned injectors and they have a large listing of part numbers to search: www.fuelinjector.citymaker.com, http://injector-rehab.com/shop/Flow_Rates
And here is an extensive table listing of Bosch PN's and flow rates: http://users.erols.com/srweiss/tableifc.htm.

How can I find an alternate fuel injector that will work?
So for example, suppose you currently have "Greentops" (stock B230FT injectors, low impedance), something like Volvo/Bosch PN 0-280-150-357. If you instead want a high impedance injector alternative to match for this conversion, I have a few listed below.  Stock "Greentops" have a flow of about 28.6 lbs/hour (300 cc/min).  A comparible high impedance alternate can be:
PN 0-280-150-785
"Orangetops" (29 lbs./hour) from a Volvo 5 cylinder 850 turbo.
PN 0-280-150-737/738 (29 lbs/hour) from an Audi/VW 4 cylinder turbo.
PN 0-280-150-218 (29.7 lbs/hour) from a Buick GN or T Type 6 cylinder Turbo.

WILL AN ALTERNATE INJECTOR PLUG IN?
<<<
The EFI electrical connector plugs that are used on all original Volvo 240/700/900 harnesses and on THIS harness are known as Bosch EV1 plugs (photo at left). Volvo changed to a later style Bosch EV6 plug in the late 1990's or early 2000's. When searching for INJECTOR PART NUMBERS you should know that part numbers appearing as X-XXX-150-XXX will all use EV1 plugs. EV6 plugs are found on part numbers appearing as X-XXX-155-XXX.  Here's a link to a comparison page of different connector plugs used: https://www.injectorrx.com/bosch-fuel-injectors.
Why would I buy this conversion harnesses when I can find a used 240 or 740 harness for less money and make my own harness? 
ANSWER:
Because 25-30 year old used harnesses have issues like in this photo. Click here to see more in FAQ 6.


PARTS NEEDED:
What other PARTS will I need for a conversion using this LH 2.2 plus EZK harness? 
If you already have an LH 2.2 240 (1985-88 240 non-turbo), then you can use your own parts that you already have, except for the ignition ICU, because the 240 never came with the ignition ICU used in this conversion.
Also you would need a different fuel injection ECU if you will be adding a turbo.  If your 1985-88 240 will remain non-turbo, then the original fuel injection ECU will be fine.
If you have an earlier 240, you'll need to make sure you have the below parts to complete your conversion.
Dave's Volvo Page does not offer the below parts.
If you can help improve or add to this info, please email.

EZK 117 ICU (Ignition Control Unit) or ICM (Ignition Control Module). Choose your EZ 117 K ICU as a turbo or non-turbo type as appropriate for your turbo or non-turbo conversion. 

TURBO:   A Turbo ICU,
PN 0 261 201 012 (photo shown at LEFT) is a known good unit for this conversion using a Turbo engine. Your source for this can be any 1985-89 740 Turbo. This Turbo ICU is VOLVO PN 1346469.
NON-TURBO:  A non-turbo ICU, PN 0 261 201 011, is a known good unit for a non-turbo engine.  Your source for this can be any 1985-88 740 non-turbo.
This non-turbo ICU is VOLVO PN 1336505.

 

If you're pulling an EZK box from a 740, you'll find it located under the steering column just to the right of the brake pedal bracket.
NOTE: Be sure to use an EZK 117 ICU. An EZK 116 ICU (made for LH 2.4) is NOT compatible with LH 2.2.

CLICK HERE for Larger LH and EZK Part Number listings here (Chipping FAQ). Most of the ICUs listed here are EZ 116K (made for LH 2.4 only, so don't mix them up).
And HERE: (EZ-117K and EZ-118K Control Units)


LH 2.2 ECU (Engine Control Unit) or ECM (Engine Control Module).
Choose turbo or non-turbo type as appropriate for your conversion.
0 280 000-511 B230F LH 2.2 1985-88 240/740 non-turbo.
0 280 000-544 B230F LH 2.2 1985-87 240/740 non-turbo.
0 280 000-554 B230F LH 2.2 1988 240/740 non-turbo.
0 280 000-541 B230FT LH 2.2 1987-89 740/760 Turbo, 1989 780 Turbo.
0 280 000-591 B230FT LH 2.2 (unknown Turbo).

Larger LH and EZK Part Number listings here (Chipping FAQ). Most of the ECUs listed here are for LH 2.4 only, so don't mix them up.
LH ECU NOTES:
An ECU from an LH 2.2 EGR car should work on a non-EGR car. The reverse may not be true. 

An LH 2.2 Turbo ECU should work in a non-turbo car, however a non-turbo ECU should NOT be used in a turbo car.

LH ECU Reference Info: http://www.nuceng.ca/bill/volvo/database/ecu.htm


240 Ignition Distributor:  Any LH 2.2 compatible 240 distributor may be used.
Notes:  Not all 240 distributors will work. It needs to be made for an LH 2.2 car (1985-88 240).  This distributor will use the side mounted 3-pin rectangular plug as shown here.
The following distributors have been confirmed to work:  Part Numbers ending in 001 (1985 240 non-turbo with LH 2.2), and 004 (unknown year 240 with LH 2.2 240, pictured at left). 
Confirmed: BOSCH PN 0237520001, 0237520004

The following distributors will NOT work:
Distributors originally using a WHITE distributor cap, or those with vacuum canisters, which are from 1984 or earlier 240s (with LH 2.0), or 240 Turbos (with a PN ending in 024) or from a later LH 2.4 car (1989-93 240, PN ending in 003). 


Ignition Coil. While there has been very little information published that suggests a specific coil is required for LH 2.2 (with EZ 117K), this information is offered as the standard Volvo specifications that may come in handy.
Coil Specification:
Volvo PN 1336137. Bosch PN 0 221 122 345.

Primary winding.
Resistance measured between Terminals 1 (Neg) and 15 (Pos): 0.6 to 0.9 Ohms

Secondary winding.
Resistance measured between Terminal 1 (Neg) and High-Tension Terminal: 6.5 to 9.0 kOhms.


Bosch MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. Any LH 2.2 MAF will work. It's the same part for TURBO or non-turbo. Bosch PN 0 280 212 007. Found in any 1985-88 240, 1985-88 740 non-turbo or any 1989 740 Turbo. 

Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Bosch PN 0280120325, VOLVO PN 1306938, 3517068. Found in any LH 2.2 or LH 2.4 240, 700 or 900.

Idle Air Valve (any LH 2.2 compatible type).
Note:  If converting from a non LH 2.2 system, you’ll need an idle valve compatible with LH 2.2, such as PN 0 280 140 501 (Volvo PN 1317957).  According to opinions in TB forums, this PN ending in 501 seems to be the one to get.  When I researched this conversion years ago there seemed be some opinions that PN 0 280 140 520 would not work (Volvo PN 3517067). . . . SEE '501 or 520' question below.

501 or 520?
This difference between the 501 and 520 here is not understood by me, since according to the IAC reference info posted below, they are interchangeable and the 520 was designated as a replacement by Volvo for the 501.
https://www.brickboard.com/RWD/volvo/745194/220/240/260/280/iac_valve_part_numbers_dates_used_bosch_500_501_520_516.html

EZK Ignition Powerstage.  ANY EZ 116 K or EZ 117 K powerstage (from any LH 2.4 240 or any LH 2.2 or 2.4 700 or 900) is fully compatible for this conversion. 
This one pictured is BOSCH PN 0227100124 or VOLVO PN 3501921.

The normal (factory) mounting location for a powerstage in a 240 is on the left inner fender just forward of the battery. 
<<< Here is the typical place you can find the powerstage in a 740.

Fuel Injection Temp Sensor for LH 2.2, PN 1332396.  This is the typical Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) sensor that any Volvo from 1981 to 1988 with K-Jetronic, LH 2.0, or LH 2.2 will have.
If you're curious about appropriate resistance test measurements for this, here it is (despite having a different PN than an LH 2.4 sensor, the resistance values are identical):
Temp              -    Resistance
-10 C (14 F)    -   8260-10560 Ohms (8.26-10.56 kOhms)
+20 C (68 F)   -   2280-2720 Ohms (2.28-2.72 kOhms)
+80 C (176 F) -   290-364 Ohms (0.290-0.364 kOhms)


Single Wire Coolant Temp Sender PN 460191.  This harness uses a ONE WIRE coolant temp sender (for your dash temperature gauge). This is the type of sender normally found on engines in all 240s.  If you have an engine from a 700/900 model, it will have a 2-pole temp sender.  It must be changed to this 1-pole type.
If you're curious about resistance test measurements for this, here you are:
Temp  -   Resistance
50 C (122 F)    -   282 ohms (0.282 kOhms)
100 C (121 F)   -   60 ohms (0.060 kOhms)
120 C (248 F)   -   40 ohms (0.040 kOhms)



Bosch Knock Sensor. You'll need one as shown here that uses a 2-pole female plug. You cannot use the single spade Chrysler type.
The newer style is VOLVO PN 1367644. It can be found in any LH 2.2 700 or 900 or LH 2.4 240, 700 or 900 or any Regina controlled 700.  Other part numbers: 0261231006, 1326658, 80246023101, 80246023738, 9142415, 94460614500, 95160614100.
<<< If you have an engine from an early 240 or 240 Turbo with a B21 or B21FT, you'll need to drill and tap the engine block with the appropriate thread for the knock sensor. The Bosch knock sensor shown above uses an M8 (M8-1.25) bolt. The B21 block will have a blank boss on the intake side where this hole is in this photo.  The depth can be up to 0.86 inch, however I have found 0.5 inch to be sufficient. 

Oil Pressure Sender.  This harness will accommodate ANY Volvo red block oil pressure sender, including an early 1-wire, late 1-wire, or 2-pole sender (such as found in a 240 Turbo that runs an oil pressure gauge).

Fuel Injector Ballast Resistor.  This will be required only if you will be using Low Impedance Fuel Injectors. This harness will accommodate your setup with or without a ballast resistor.

LH 2.2 Fuel System Relay (white Fuel Pump Relay):  PN 3523608.
This is the standard fuel system/fuel pump relay used in all LH 2.2 Volvos.  Using one of these is not required, but this is what you'll use is you want a direct plug and play relay.



These are items below that you might need for your LH conversion.  Many people doing such DIY conversions can find used parts to fill these needs, but if you need new ones, there are some here. 

These optional items are available for purchase in the Harness Parts Page.
OPTIONAL PARTS:
Optional Items Available for installing above LH 2.2 EZ117K Conversion Harness

These items are available for purchase in the Harness Parts Page.

<<< 4-pole Male 3.5 mm Bullet Plug Housing:  This plug already comes on the above 3515364-EZK harness.  It's found near the ECU under the dash.  If you need one for other reasons, here it is.  Housing only, no terminals.
LOCATED HERE
<<< Male 3.5 mm bullet crimp terminals for above.  Terminal will fit up to 14 gauge wire comfortably.  It inserts and locks into above male housing.
LOCATED HERE
<<< 4-Pole Female 3.5 mm Bullet Plug Housing and Female crimp terminals:  This Female Housing will mate with the above Male Housing.  If you have an LH 2.2 car, your car will already have one of these under your dash and you might only need some crimp terminals.  For a Turbo or pre-1985 240, you will need one of these to plug into the above Male 4-pole plug on the EZK harness.  LOCATED HERE
<<< 6.3 mm (.250") Female Terminals (available for two wire sizes) and Insulators.  LOCATED HERE

<<< 6.3 mm (.250") Male Terminals and Insulators.
LOCATED HERE
<<< Waterproof Fuse Holder.  This optional fuse holder may be added to a harness purchase to replace the original non-sealed Volvo fuse holder.  It can also be installed by me on a harness at time of purchase if desired.
LOCATED HERE


Why would you need any optional parts?
Installing this harness in a 1985-88 240 with LH 2.2. 
These are a few items you'll probably need to address for this installation.
--   A Female terminal for a 4-pole 3.5 mm under-dash plug (that you already have), a length of Red/White wire (or whatever color you have, 16-18 gauge will do), and a 6.3 mm (.250") female terminal (insulated or with insulator):  For connection from your 4-pole female plug to a tachometer if needed.
--   6.3 mm (.250") male terminal with insulator, a length of heavy Blue wire (or any color, 12-14 gauge will do), and a 6.3 mm  (.250") female terminal:  For connection from Blue power connection on harness to your fuse panel (for power to coil).
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS WILL HAVE MORE DETAIL.

Installing this harness in a pre-1985 240 or 240 Turbo. 
This installation will need a bit more.

LH 2.4 plus EZ 116 K
FULL CONVERSION ENGINE HARNESS
This is a conversion harness to convert ANY 240 to LH 2.4. It connects to both the engine and ignition points under your hood AND to the engine control modules under your dash. It is designed to use LH 2.4 fuel injection and EZ116K ignition components. An EZK ignition originally came in a 700 series, not in a 240. Volvo put a less desirable Chrysler ignition in the 240 made before 1989. This harness allows you to use the EZK ignition parts.
This is a perfect complement for someone planning to update a K-jet car or install a later turbo or non-turbo Volvo 4 cylinder into an earlier 240.
Harness Part Number: LH2.4-EZKconversion
Price: $389.00 plus shipping.

This conversion harness is designed to be used with LOW or HIGH IMPEDANCE fuel injectors.

1.   For Low Impedance Injectors (AKA: low-Z or peak and hold type): This type was original in the Volvo 700/900 TURBO. This harness has a plug where you can plug in a Ballast Resistor Pack if needed. Any standard Volvo 700/900 type resistor pack will be fine.  This way you may use standard fuel injectors from a 700/900 TURBO or any other low-Z injectors.

2.
For High Impedance Injectors (AKA: high-Z or saturated type):  This type was originally used in Volvo non-turbos, such as your original injectors found in a 240 non-turbo. This harness will work with these injectors as is with the pictured by-pass plug shown at left IN PLACE.  Impedance testing methods for injectors found HERE.

Also you can find Pin-Out Function Diagrams HERE:

https://www.prancingmoose.com/volvoharnesses.html#pinfunctions

This harness may be used to convert any 240 to LH 2.4 plus EZK ignition, including any early 240 models with K-Jetronic, Turbo or "+T" conversions as well as any other 240 made from 1975 or later. 

This harness is designed to allow the use of a MAF Sensor on EITHER side of the engine bay.
The MAF may be placed on the left side for non-turbo
or the right side for a turbo. 
The MAF wire leads are designed to be long enough to reach either location. 

Everything under the hood is a direct PLUG and PLAY.
There are a few wires under the dash that will need connecting. That number depends on how old your 240 is, but it can be up to 10 wires.
Complete and detailed instructions are included. 


UNDER-DASH WIRING GUIDE
WIRE
ORIGIN
CONNECTION UNDER DASH
A1. Red/Gray
From ECU
This wire brings input to your ECU from the AC relay pin D+/61 or AC control switch (Red/Gray).  It allows the ECU to compensate the idle speed when AC is activated.

A2. Green
From ECU
This wire brings input to your ECU from the AC compressor. It tells the ECU that your AC compressor is engaged. It’s used to keep the idle speed stable when compressor starts.

B1. Blue
From ECU, ICU
This wire gets connected to switched power from the ignition switch Terminal 15 (any 12v circuit with Ignition Switch in the “RUN” position). This power source may usually be tapped from the back side of fuse 11, 12 or 13 for (or fuse 3, 4 or 5 for 1978 and older 240). This circuit may be combined with wire B3.

B2. Red/Yellow (fat)
From Fuel Relay
This is the output from the Fuel Pump Relay to supply power to the fuel pumps.  This wire should be connected at the fuse panel to the INPUT side of the fuse for the in-tank fuel pump or fuel pumps.  You can choose this fuse as follows: 1979 -84: Fuse 5. 1985 and later: Fuse 4. For pre-1979, you can choose any fuse that is not currently being used, such as fuse 10, or install an in-line fuse and then connect to pump. 
Click here for the Fuel Pump Relay Page to see useful 240 Fuel Pump Relay Diagrams.

If you are converting a 240 Turbo or other K-Jet 240 and you're having trouble visualizing how this circuit powers your pumps, I have a more detailed explanation in my 240 Fuel Pump Page HERE: https://www.240turbo.com/fuelpumprelay.html#LH2.2Fuse5

B3. Blue (fat)
From Coil+
This wire gets connected to switched power from ignition switch Terminal 15 (any 12v circuit with Ignition Switch in the “RUN” position). This source may usually be tapped from the back side of fuse 11, 12 or 13 (or fuse 3, 4 or 5 for 1978 and older 240). This circuit may be combined with wire B1.

B4. Black/Blue
From ECU
This wire gets connected to the Speedometer Pulse Output Signal on the back of an electric speedometer, pin 31/6 (in the round plug).  This signal is produced by an LH 2.4 compatible speedometer when it's connected to the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) in the differential.
For questions about workarounds concerning this for EARLIER 240s CLICK HERE.

B5. Violet
From ECU
This wire may be connected for the Shift Light if desired for a manual transmission car. It goes to pin 34 of an LH 2.4 compatible instrument cluster.

B6. Pink/White
(2 wires)
From ECU, ICU
Check Engine Light (CEL). This wire is connected to pin 235 of an LH 2.4 compatible instrument cluster to provide the circuit for the CEL, if it's desired. 
B7. Pink
From ECU
This wire supplies the ECU with momentary power when the starter is engaged.  If used, connect this wire to the starter solenoid circuit. The starter solenoid circuit is the Blue/Yellow wire in the 8-pole firewall plug. It may also be traced to a convenient location under the dash.

B8. Red/White
From Ignition Powerstage
Output to tachometer lead if needed.  If a tach signal is needed for your tach, you may connect this wire to your tach input spade.

LHD or RHD?: 
This default harness is made for LHD (left hand drive) cars, however a RHD (right hand drive) harness may be made if needed.


QUESTIONS?

What is the difference between LH 2.2 and LH 2.4?
1.   The timing maps for LH 2.4 (using EZ 116K ignition) are more advanced than LH 2.2 (using EZ 117K ignition).  LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K) has an ignition timing range from approximately 55º BTDC to approximately 5º ATDC.

2.   LH 2.2 (with EZ 117K) allows for a maximum knock controlled retard of 13º (for B230F) or 9.8
º (for B230FT). Retard step is set at 2.8º and re-advance steps are 0.37º.
LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K) allows for a maximum knock controlled retard of 14
º for either Turbo or non-turbo variants.  Retard step is set at 2.6º to 4895 RPM and 2.3º above 4895 RPM. The re-advance steps are 0.375º.

3.   For LH 2.2 (with EZ 117K), for certain Turbo models only, factory ignition control units can detect an over-heating condition (12v signal sent from a thermostat switch to EZK ICU pin 9). A safety measure is then applied by advancing the ignition timing 13
º when the throttle is closed (IDLE). This feature is not connected or used for the LH 2.2 EZK conversion harness offered in this page.

4.   LH 2.2 (with EZ 117K) (TURBO variants ONLY) offers Knock-Controlled FUEL Enrichment.
When at least 6
º of knock retard occurs in all cylinders, fuel is enriched by extending injector opening periods.

5.   All LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K) variants offer Knock-Controlled Fuel Enrichment. 
Fuel is enriched when at least 3
º to 4º of retard occurs in all cylinders at engine speeds above 3800 RPM and above a certain minimum engine load (regulated by the MAF). 

6.   LH 2.4 will allow for up to 100% fuel injector duty cycle.  LH 2.2 will not.

7.   LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K) has built in OBD (On Board Diagnostic) which can make fault tracing easier than LH 2.2, which has no such system. The LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K) self-diagnostic functions will store fault codes in its memory. Control unit memory can store up to three different fault codes, although the LED on the OBD unit can display up to seven 3-digit fault codes. NOTE: Memory is erased and fault codes are deleted when the battery is disconnected.

8.   LH 2.2 uses a MAF with an external CO adjustment screw for fine tuning. The MAF for LH 2.4 has no external adjustment.

9.   LH 2.2 has an externally adjustable idle speed.  LH 2.4 idle speed is not externally adjustable.
 
10. LH 2.2 (with EZ 117K) has externally adjustable ignition timing.  LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K) ignition timing is not externally adjustable.

11. While both LH 2.2 and LH 2.4 will increase idle speed when an AC compressor is engaged, LH 2.4 also offers an idle increase when an automatic transmission selector is moved from 'P' or 'N' to 'R', '1', '2', '3' or 'D'.

12. Both systems use an ignition distributor.
LH 2.2 (with EK 117K) uses a distributor with a Hall sensor to read engine speed and send that signal to the control unit. 
LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K) uses a distributor with no Hall sensor (no internal electrical device at all). This system uses a Crank Position Sensor (CPS) mounted on the back of the engine block above the flywheel (or above the flex-plate for an auto transmission) CLICK HERE for more info.  The CPS reads engine speed and sends that signal to the control unit. Using a CPS is considered to be more accurate than the earlier distributor Hall sensor. Adding a CPS bracket and compatible flywheel (or flex-plate) is required if you're fitting LH 2.4 to an earlier 240 that did not originally have it.
More info HERE

13. LH 2.4 is designed to receive an input signal from an LH 2.4 compatible electric speedometer (1989-93 240). This signal tells the ECU if the car is moving and helps the fuel system regulate fuel-cut during deceleration (or engine braking) and engine idle (when stopped). This later type LH 2.4 speedometer would normally be receiving an input signal from a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) in the differential. All 1986 and later 240s came with a VSS equipped differential, however two different types of VSS systems were made (non-ABS braking type and ABS type). The early type came in 1986 to 92 240s (without ABS).  The later type came in 1991-92 240s with optional ABS and 1993 240s, which came standard with ABS. More info and photos of these VSS sensors and differentials can be found in the Volvo Rear End Page:
https://www.240turbo.com/volvorearends.html.
There are some WORK-AROUNDS for those installing LH 2.4 into an earlier 240 that does not have the typical VSS signals - CLICK HERE for more info on this.

LH 2.2 has no need or provision to receive a VSS signal, making it a more simple option for an early 240 without a VSS equipped rear differential. 

14. If the car is to be turbocharged and an overboost fuel cut is needed, LH 2.2 uses an external overboost switch, which gets a boost signal from the intake manifold. This ON/OFF switch reads boost pressure in the same manner the 240 Turbo did. The overboost switch will cut power to the fuel pump relay when it reaches its set maximum boost point.
LH 2.4 doesn't use any external overboost switch. LH 2.4 can regulate an overboost fuel cut function using an engine load signal from the MAF sensor. The MAF generates a voltage signal based on air flow. When it reaches a programmed threshold, it will introduce fuel cut protection. The factory threshold is believed to be about 5.1v. with a boost limit of around 12-13 psi. Workarounds are possible for higher boost options. One involves using a diode across two of the MAF terminal wires. Or an option can be switching to a larger (3 inch) MAF from a 960. Plus some LH 2.4 ECUs can be reprogrammed or "chipped" to modify this function. More on chipping below. 

15. The parts needed for your 240 will also be different between LH 2.2 and LH 2.4 depending on what year or model 240 you have.
Early 240 or 240 Turbo: Installing an LH 2.2 conversion into an early 240 that originally had mechanical fuel injection (K-Jet) will be less work than installing an LH 2.4 conversion, but either can be done.  LH 2.4 will require a Crank Position Sensor (CPS) on the engine, which is not found on an early 240. LH 2.2 does not use this sensor, so it's not needed for LH 2.2. There is more information about adding a CPS below for an LH 2.4 installation. That can be found HERE. 

Early 240 or 240 Turbo: If you're installing a later engine, which previously used LH 2.4 (B230F 1989 or later. B230FT 1990 or later), it would have come with a Crank Position Sensor and that sensor may be used.

Early 240 or 240 Turbo: LH 2.4 also should have a signal from a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) in the rear differential. Early 240s (before 1986) will not have a VSS. LH 2.2 has no need for a VSS signal, so that makes LH 2.2 a less complicated installation. More information about work-arounds for LH 2.4 and a VSS can be found HERE.

Early 240 or 240 Turbo: If you're using an early engine block that did not originally have a drilled hole for a Knock Sensor, that hole will need to be drilled and tapped for any LH 2.2 or LH 2.4 installation. This hole was done at the factory for all 1983 and later B23F and B23FT blocks and all 1985 and later B230F and B230FT blocks. B21 blocks (B21A, E, F, or FT) did not have this hole drilled and tapped from the factory. More information about adding this hole can be found HERE.

Early 240 or 240 Turbo FUEL PUMPS: If you're wondering if you need to change your K-Jetronic fuel pumps to something different, you do not. The original K-Jet in-tank pump and main pump are compatible with an EFI system installation.  You may want to consider changing to higher capacity pumps if you're increasing power to the point that the stock pumps may not supply enough fuel. Otherwise, no change is required.
 
1985-88 240: A 240 from these years would have come with LH 2.2, so this of course makes an LH 2.2 installation pretty simple. Installing LH 2.4 in a 1985-88 240 means you will need to add a Crank Position Sensor (CPS) to the engine or use a later engine that has one.
More info can be found HERE.

More information about PARTS needs for an LH 2.4 installation can be found HERE.
        
How do I know if my 1989-93 240 has LH 2.4 or LH 3.1?
LH 2.4 began being installed in 240s beginning in 1989, however some 240s got LH 3.1 EFI instead. So far from what I have found, LH 3.1 was only installed in MANUAL TRANSMISSION 240s, however, not all manual transmission 240s got LH 3.1.  A fair number of them got LH 2.4. 

LH 3.1 manual transmission cars were sold in all places EXCEPT for California.  All California 240s with a manual transmission got LH 2.4, and most, if not all of these also got EGR (and some of those also got Pulsair).

There are a few ways to tell if a car has LH 2.4 or LH 3.1.  If the car is in front of you, you can look under the hood.  Find the MAF sensor.  If the MAF sensor has a 6-pole connector, then it has LH 2.4.  If the MAF sensor has a 4-pole connector, then it has LH 3.1.

You can also tell by looking at the VIN. 
<<< This VIN plate is from a 1993 245 with a manual transmission. It has ENGINE CODE 88, which indicates it was equipped with LH 2.4.
<<< This VIN plate is from a 1992 245 with a manual transmission. It has ENGINE CODE 82, which indicates it was equipped with LH 3.1.

Where should I place the LH 2.4 ECU and EZK ICU in my 240 conversion project?
I think the best place to mount the control units is where the factory placed them for later 240s. Under the right side dash. If you have access to used parts or salvage yards, the original mounting brackets would be a good thing to get. The LH ECU bracket from any 1985-93 240 will work.  The EZK ICU bracket is found in 1989-93 240s.

Also, if you're pulling an EZK unit from a 740, you'll find it located under the steering column just to the right of the brake pedal bracket.
Where can I find pin-out function diagrams for LH 2.4 and EZK 116 control units?

How can I have my LH 2.4 ECU Chipped?
Having an ECU chipped is optional.  Altering the programming is not required to install LH 2.4 in a car. 
There are some resources if you want to pursue this. Here's a good place to start
.  CHIPPING FAQ: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=84817
Also there is a source in Sweden here: https://www.stonis-world.com/chipsfrb.html

Or you can program your own ECU using THE OSTRICH EMULATOR.


How do I know if my fuel injectors are low impedance or high impedance?
If you know they are from a non-turbo Volvo 240 or 740, then they are high impedance. Stock 740 Turbo (B230FT) injectors, known as "Greentops", are low impedance types. 
You can measure the resistance across the two electrical terminals of the injector. If the resistance is between 1.5 and 4.0 Ohms you have low impedance injectors.  If the resistance is between 8 and 16 Ohms you have high impedance injectors. YouTube Video Here. 
For best results, a set of injectors should be fairly close to each other in an Ohms test.

Great fuel injector info compilation here:  forums.turbobricks.com/26083.
Here are some sites that offers reconditioned injectors and they have a large listing of part numbers to look at:
www.fuelinjector.citymaker.com, http://injector-rehab.com/shop/Flow_Rates

And here is an extensive table listing of Bosch fuel injector PN's and flow rates: http://users.erols.com/srweiss/tableifc.htm.

How can I find an alternate fuel injector that will work?
So for example, suppose you currently have "Greentops" (stock low impedance B230FT injectors), something like PN 0-280-150-357.  You may use those injectors (or any low impedance injector) for this conversion without any issues as long as you are using a fuel injector ballast resistor.

On the other hand, suppose you want to use a high impedance alternative for this conversion harness on a turbo car. That's possible also with this harness.  You'll find that the stock "Greentops" have a flow of about 28.6 lbs/hour (300 cc/min).  A comparable alternate can be:
PN 0-280-150-785
"Orangetops" (29 lbs./hour) from a Volvo 5 cylinder 850 turbo.
PN 0-280-150-737/738 (29 lbs/hour) from an Audi/VW turbo.
PN 0-280-150-218 (29.7 lbs/hour) from a Buick GN V6 Turbo.
Lots of alternatives.

BOSCH EV1:  The EFI electrical connector plugs that are used on all Volvo 240/700/900 harnesses and on THIS conversion harness are known as Bosch EV1 plugs (photo at left). Volvo changed to a later style Bosch EV6 plug in the late 1990's or early 2000's. When searching for fuel injector part numbers you should know that part numbers for fuel injectors appearing as X-XXX-150-XXX will all use Bosch EV1 plugs. Bosch EV6 plugs are found on part numbers appearing as X-XXX-155-XXX.
Here's a comparison page of different connector plugs used: https://www.injectorrx.com/bosch-fuel-injectors.

So why would I buy this conversion harness when I can pull harness parts from a salvaged 240 or 740 for less money and make my own harness? 

SHORT ANSWER: Because 25 plus year old used and heat-soaked harnesses have issues like this pic. Click here to see more in FAQ 6.
Do I need to use a
Later Type LH 2.4 Compatible Speedo or Instrument Cluster
and/or a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) in the rear differential?


This section concerns the need (or option) to connect the B4 Black/Blue wire in the LH 2.4 conversion harness (CLICK HERE to see) to an LH 2.4 compatible speedometer (with a Speedo Pulse Output Signal).  For this signal to be valid, it would mean that the speedo is connected to a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) in the rear differential. This speedo signal tells the ECU whether the car is moving or not and it helps the fuel system to know when it should cut fuel during deceleration (engine braking) and how the idle should be maintained when stopped. If this signal is missing, reportedly you can experience unstable idle behavior.

This conversion harness is designed to accept this Speedometer Pulse Output Signal from your VSS if your car has one. The problem is if you have a 240 made before electronic speedometers were introduced in 1986, then you don't have a rear differential with a VSS. In this case you are presented with some choices. 

It may not be required to have a rear differential with a VSS, but there will be some trade-offs if you don't.
OPTIONS:
1. Install a 1986 or later rear differential and use a later LH 2.4 speedometer.
2.  Use a throttle body with a MANUALLY adjustable idle stop and delete the LH 2.4 idle valve
(this will probably cause undesirable idle behavior issues during warm versus cold temperatures).
3. Use a cruise control pickup from cable speedometer with a modified PCB from an electronic speedometer.
4.  Add an aftermarket 3-wire hall effect sensor with a custom mount to read speed pulses from the driveshaft.
5.  Use a Dakota Digital converter or pulse generator to provide the needed pulse signal to an LH 2.4 compatible speedo, which can then provide the needed output signal to the LH 2.4 ECU.

Here are some discussions on this with some suggested work-arounds:

PARTS NEEDED?
What PARTS will I need for an LH 2.4 plus EZK conversion using this harness? 
If you already have a 240 with LH 2.4 (any 1989-93 240), then you can use your existing parts.
You should also change your fuel injection ECU to a TURBO ECU if you will be doing a TURBO car.
If you have a 1988 or earlier 240, you'll need to acquire the below parts.

NOTE Regarding LH 3.1 and Regina EFI:
 Some late 240s with manual transmissions came with LH 3.1 EFI.
Most LH 3.1 parts are not compatible with this conversion.
And some late 740/940 non-turbo cars came with Regina EFI and Renix ignitions. The ECUs from Regina cars are not compatible.


EZ 116K ICU (Ignition Control Unit). EZ 116K was used in all LH 2.4 equipped 240s and most 700/900 models. 
This one pictured is PN 0 227 400 146.

While it may bot be required, it's recommended that you choose turbo or non-turbo type as appropriate for your car.

If you're pulling an EZK box from a 740, you'll find it located under the steering column just to the right of the brake pedal bracket.
 
Be sure to use an EZ 116K ICU. An EZ 117K ICU (made for LH 2.2) is NOT compatible with LH 2.4.

LH ECU and EZK ICU Reference Information below:
Larger LH and EZK Part Number listings here (Chipping FAQ).
 http://www.nuceng.ca/bill/volvo/database/ecu.htm
Large Volvo LH 2.4 Listings

240 Distributor (any LH 2.4 compatible type from a 1989-93 240). Compatible Part Numbers: BOSCH 0237523003.


Additionally it's possible to use a distributor from an LH 2.2 240 if you remove the Hall generator. This is considered to be a "gutted" distributor:  BOSCH PN 0237520001, 0237520004 

Ignition Coil. While there has been very little information published that suggests a specific coil is required for LH 2.4 (with EZ 116K), this information is offered as the standard Volvo specifications that may come in handy.
Coil Specification:
Volvo PN 9438228 (1317810, 1317815). Bosch PN 0 221 122 334.

Primary winding.
Resistance measured between Terminals 1 (Neg) and 15 (Pos): 0.6 to 0.9 Ohms

Secondary winding.
Resistance measured between Terminal 1 (Neg) and High-Tension Terminal: 6.5 to 9.0 kOhms.


Bosch MAF sensor (AMM). LH 2.4 uses BOSCH PN 0280212016, which will be compatible for turbo or non-turbo.  This MAF is found on any 1989 and later 240 (with LH 2.4) or any 1990 and later 740 Turbo or any 1989 or later 740/940 non-turbo (with LH 2.4 of course).


Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). BOSCH PN 0280120325, VOLVO PN 1306938, 3517068. Found in any LH 2.2 or LH 2.4 240, 700 or 900.

Idle Air Valve (any LH 2.4 compatible). 
This one pictured is BOSCH PN 0280140516 from any 1989-93 240 (with LH 2.4) or any 1989 and later 740 Turbo or and 1990 and later 740/940 non-turbo (with LH 2.4 of course). 

NOTE: Many late 240s with manual transmissions were equipped with LH 3.1.
Some late 740/940 non-turbo cars came with Regina EFI.

EZK Ignition Powerstage.  ANY EZ 116 K or EZ 117 K powerstage (from any LH 2.4 240 or any LH 2.2 or 2.4 700 or 900) is fully compatible for this conversion. 
This one pictured is BOSCH PN 0227100124 or VOLVO PN 3501921.

The normal (factory) mounting location for a powerstage in a 240 is on the left inner fender just forward of the battery. 
<<< Here is the typical place you can find the powerstage in a 740.

Fuel Injection Temp Sensor for LH 2.4, PN 1346030.  This is the typical Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) sensor that any Volvo LH 2.4 equipped car will use (or Regina equipped car).
If you're curious about appropriate resistance test measurements for this, here you are (despite having a different PN than LH 2.2, the resistance values are identical):
Temp              -    Resistance
-10 C (14 F)    -   8260-10560 Ohms (8.26-10.56 kOhms)
+20 C (68 F)   -   2280-2720 Ohms (2.28-2.72 kOhms)
+80 C (176 F) -   290-364 Ohms (0.290-0.364 kOhms)

Single Wire Coolant Temp Sender VOLVO PN 460191.  This harness uses a ONE WIRE coolant temp sender (for your dash temperature gauge). This is the sender normally found on engines in 240s.  If you have an engine from a 700/900 model, it will have a 2-pole temp sender.  It must be changed to this 1-pole type.
If you're curious about resistance test measurements for this, here you are:
Temp               -   Resistance
50 C (122 F)    -   282 ohms (0.282 kOhms)
100 C (121 F)   -   60 ohms (0.060 kOhms)
120 C (248 F)   -   40 ohms (0.040 kOhms)


Bosch Knock Sensor. You'll need one as shown here that uses a 2-pole female plug. You cannot use the single spade Chrysler type.
The newer style is VOLVO PN 1367644. It can be found in any LH 2.2 700 or 900 or LH 2.4 240, 700 or 900 or any Regina controlled 700.  Other part numbers: 0261231006, 1326658, 80246023101, 80246023738, 9142415, 94460614500, 95160614100.

<<< If you have an engine from an early 240 or 240 Turbo with a B21 or B21FT, you'll need to drill and tap the engine block with the appropriate thread for the knock sensor. The Bosch knock sensor shown above uses an M8 (M8-1.25) bolt. The B21 block will have a blank boss on the intake side where this hole is in this photo.  The depth can be up to 0.86 inch, however I have found 0.5 inch to be sufficient. 

Oil Pressure Sender.  This harness will accomodate ANY redblock oil pressure sender, including an early 1-wire, late 1-wire, or 2-pole sender (such as found in a 240 Turbo).

Fuel Injector Ballast Resistor.  This will be required only if you will be using Low Impedance Fuel Injectors.

LH 2.4 Fuel System Relay (white Fuel Pump Relay):  VOLVO PN 3523608.
This is the standard fuel system/fuel pump relay used in all LH 2.4 Volvos up to about 1993.  Using one of these is not required, but this is what you'll use is you want a direct plug and play relay.

LH 2.4 Compatible Flywheel or Flexplate, CPS.  LH 2.4 requires the use of a Crank Position Sensor (CPS).
VOLVO PN 271949, 3547847, 1389399.
This conversion harness is design for this sensor. This means you must have an LH 2.4 type flywheel (if using a manual transmission), or an LH 2.4 type flexplate (if using an automatic transmission).  The top-rear of your engine (where the transmission bell housing is) should also accept a Crank Position Sensor bracket or it should be modified to do so if not already equipped (modification info below).


If you have an engine that did not originally use a Crank Position Sensor above the flywheel, here is some information you can use if you need to add it to your engine block. The original CPS mounting bracket is Volvo PN 3507510 and it is reportedly NLA as a new part. It can be found as a used part.  
The CPS bracket is mounted using M6 (M6-1.0) thread bolts, so you will need to drill and tap for M6 bolts. If you're drilling an un-drilled block, the holes should be centered between the top transmission mounting holes, 1.575 inch (40 mm) apart. Depth may be up to ~0.9 inch (about 23 mm). 
 

There are some other similar CPS brackets used on other Volvos that you will see on-line when searching. These will appear to be nearly the same. It is unknown if any of those can be used or modified to work. 
If anyone knows about this, please email. 



On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Unit. VOLVO PN 1398703. This unit is found in any LH 2.4 or Regina EFI equipped 240, 700 or 900 model.


OPTIONAL ITEMS TO THINK ABOUT
<<< This is an Ostrich 2.0 Emulator. It can be found at: http://www.moates.net/. This device gives you the ability to DIY tune your LH 2.4 ECU.

<<< This pic: Here's one mounted on an LH 2.4 ECU being used with THIS conversion harness and a B230FT.  This customer is using this device to allow him to create live tuning for his LH 2.4 system. He uses TunerPro RT on a laptop to emulate a tune to the Ostrich. The Ostrich has a lead to a chip that replaces the stock chip in your LH 2.4 ECU. After completing your tune, you emulate it one last time and then disconnect the laptop.

F U L L   D E S C R I P T I O N   B E L O W
Volvo 240 ignition control unit (ICU).  This is a conversion harness for any existing 240 using LH 2.2 (1985 to 88) or any car using the engine harness for this 240.  These 240s originally came with an undesirable Chrysler ignition system with the fender mounted Ignition Control Unit (photo to the left). This conversion harness is designed to allow you to instead use the more desirable EZ 117 K ignition system.  The EZ 117 K ignition system came in the 740 series during the same years. Your existing main engine harness is not disturbed for this conversion, except for some wires to be spliced under the dash near the ECU.  All new connections under the hood are PLUG AND PLAY. This conversion harness is designed to work with your existing LH 2.2 system and it serves to bridge the necessary connections to the newer EZ 117 K ignition system.  Your new EZK ignition box should be mounted under the dash near the LH ECU.

When installing this conversion, you may completely unplug and remove all of your old Chrysler ignition harness and ignition control unit.
This harness comes with a complete set of color diagrams illustrating each circuit and each connector in detail. 
These diagrams will guide you though the proper location of each connector.


There are up to 6 wires in this new harness that will be spliced into wires in your existing under dash harness near your existing EFI Control Unit.
OVERVIEW OF TYPICAL UNDER-DASH WIRE CONNECTIONS FOR THIS CONVERSION:

Red/White: (Ign Powerstage)  If a tach signal is needed for your tach, extend and connect this wire to the tachometer signal input.  

Blue: (Coil +) Power lead for the coil and power stage. Extend this wire to the fuse panel to provide 12v when the ignition switch is in the “Run” position.  

Black/Red: (ICU) To be spliced into the LH ECU Blue/White wire coming from ECU pin 12. This wire should ONLY be connected if a TURBO fuel injection ECU is being used.  This circuit provides fuel enrichment when knock is detected.  

Gray/Yellow: (ICU)  To be spliced into the LH ECU Gray wire from ECU pin 1.

Orange: (ICU)  To be spliced into the LH ECU Orange wire from ECU pin 3.

Yellow: (ICU)  To be spliced into the LH ECU Yellow wire from ECU pin 24.

For more information and images of 240 fuse panels, you can have a look at my 240 Fuse Panel Page.


What parts will I need for a conversion using this harness?
 
If you already have an LH 2.2 240 ('85-'88), then nothing changes with the fuel system. You will need some EZK compatible Ignition parts below.
If you can help improve or add to this info, please email.
EZK 117 ICU (Ignition Control Unit) or ICM (Ignition Control Module). Choose your EZ 117 K ICU as a turbo or non-turbo type as appropriate for your turbo or non-turbo conversion. 
<<< This one pictured is PN 0 261 201 012, which is an EZ 117 K ICU from a 1985-89 740 Turbo. The VOLVO Part Number is 1336505.
 
A Turbo ICU with PN ending in 012 is a known good unit for this conversion using a Turbo engine.
Your source for this can be any 1985-89 740 Turbo.

A non-turbo ICU (PN 0 261 201 011) is a known good non-turbo ignition box. The VOLVO Part Number is 1346469.  Your source for this can be any 1985-88 740 non-turbo

Be sure to use an EZK 117 ICU. An EZK 116 ICU (made for LH 2.4) is NOT compatible with LH 2.2.

CLICK HERE for Larger LH and EZK Part Number listings here (Chipping FAQ). Most of the ICUs listed here are EZ 116K (made for LH 2.4 only, so don't mix them up).
And HERE: (EZ-117K and EZ-118K Control Units)

  240 Distributor: Your existing distributor is used if you have a 1985-89 240 non-turbo.
Note: If you need to shop for a distributor, you should read this. Not all 240 distributors will work.  An LH 2.2 type will have the side mounted 3-pin rectangular plug as shown here. So get that one.
The following distributors have been confirmed to work:  Part Numbers ending in 001 (1985 240 non-turbo with LH 2.2), and 004 (unknown year 240 with LH 2.2 240, pictured at left). 
Confirmed: BOSCH PN 0237520001, 0237520004

The following distributors will NOT work:
Distributors originally using a WHITE distributor cap, or those with vacuum canisters, which are from 1984 or earlier 240s (with LH 2.0), or 240 Turbos (with a PN ending in 024) or from a later LH 2.4 car (1989-93 240, PN ending in 003). 

Ignition Coil. While there has been very little information published that suggests a specific coil is required for LH 2.2 (with EZ 117K), this information is offered as the standard Volvo specifications that may come in handy.
Coil Specification:
Volvo PN 1336137. Bosch PN 0 221 122 345.

Primary winding.
Resistance measured between Terminals 1 (Neg) and 15 (Pos): 0.6 to 0.9 Ohms

Secondary winding.
Resistance measured between Terminal 1 (Neg) and High-Tension Terminal: 6.5 to 9.0 kOhms.

EZK Ignition Powerstage.  ANY EZ 116 K or EZ 117 K powerstage (from any LH 2.2 or 2.4 240, 700 or 900) is fully compatible for this conversion. 
This one pictured is BOSCH PN 0227100124 or VOLVO PN 3501921.

The normal (factory) mounting location for an ignition powerstage in a 240 is on the left inner fender just forward of the battery. 

Bosch Knock Sensor. You'll need one as shown here that uses a 2-pole female plug. You cannot use the single spade Chrysler type.
The newer style is VOLVO PN 1367644. It can be found in any LH 2.2 700 or 900 or LH 2.4 240, 700 or 900 or any Regina controlled 700.  Other part numbers: 0261231006, 1326658, 80246023101, 80246023738, 9142415, 94460614500, 95160614100.
