    Fixing my 1987 505 STI

    Rear rotors seem like a lot of work but aren't too bad - the Hub assembly is held on with 4x 8mm Allen bolts that are accessible through the big hole in the wheel bolt flange, just rotate the flange around until you get all 4 out. Use a good allen socket, and make sure it's full seated in the head of the bolt before undoing it. Rear calipers: Are you sure they're seized? You won't really know their condition until you remove them, but just remember the piston needs to be rotated before it will slide back to change the pads. Never force the piston back. Glad the transmission oil tip worked out - My 505 STI 5sp was THE best shifting car I've ever driven after using the Redline NS gear oil in it. Rabin

    Fixing my 1987 505 STI

    Thanks for the oil tip, that's what I went with and it shifts like a dream now. When I drained the old oil, only about 1/3 of what there should have been came out. Certainly explained the clunky shifting. While I was underneath the car, I noticed several different colors of leaks. Most concerning was the amount of oil that was present. The car wasn't low on oil when I checked the dipstick, but it was concerning nonetheless. Luckily, a friend of mine knew of an old Peugeot dealer mechanic that works at a Volvo/Saab shop near me. I took the car in for an inspection, and to quote the mechanic, "it's not great, but you could have bought worse." There's a whole bunch of smaller issues that I can worry about later, but the main concerns boil down to three areas: the braking system, the water pump, and the engine seals. At least the front crank seal needs replacement, as the timing belt is covered in oil. In the rear, either the rear main seal or the head gasket is bad. There's no coolant in the oil that I can tell, but there's no way to be sure. The water pump is bad, but that's old news by now. Also, the driver's tie rod is bent from what looks like a failed towing attempt. Both the clutch master and slave cylinders are leaky, but I'll get there later. There's not much sense in having a car that you can't stop, so my current concern is the brake system. The biggest problems are the master cylinder and the rear calipers. I've got a new cylinder on the way, and it should be easy enough to replace the old one. The bigger pain are the rear calipers. Both of them are seized, necessitating new pads, rotors, and a dual caliper replacement/rebuild. I can find rear caliper seal sets, but I'm unable to source either new rear pistons or complete caliper assemblies. Depending how bad the piston is corroded, this could be an issue. I'll keep looking, and hopefully something will pop up. I'll shoot an email to some of the parts suppliers listed on the forum, too. Replacing the rotors also looks to be a pain, considering I'll have to take out the complete hub assembly to get them off. It's certainly doable though, so once parts arrive and the weather warms up I'll begin. At the very least, the transmission doesn't leak oil any more, so that's cool. In the mean time, it's back under the car cover for some hibernation. Certainly a long post with not much in terms of progress, but that's how all projects start. If anybody knows any tips or tricks, I'd be more than happy to hear them.

    Brake compensator valve

    A long time ago I jacked up the car at the pumpkin, and it disturbed the old compensator valve, which started leaking.

  16. Hi, I am Ivan from Croatia. Here is my 1981 505 STI that I almost all restored. It was bought i Croatia (ex Yugoslavia) in 1981, driven by a Peugeot dealer director. I have it since 2017. Here are some pictures, when I bought it: http://213.147.125.109/isporcic/Forumi/505sti/505.jpg http://213.147.125.109/isporcic/Forumi/505sti/108b_16.jpg http://213.147.125.109/isporcic/Forumi/505sti/108b_17.jpg
  17. hitting heavily due personal reasons. So, I'll sell a parts of rare old and new stock items for 505 (specially for turbo). danielson heads, gasgets etc... Listing is hard currently, but ask and I'll look. V-M
  18. New rubber parts for the wiper motor: Instrument panel connected - the wiring as built in my car is very different than the wiring diagram: The instrument panel installed. Ventilator switch is now mounted on the dashboard rather than the SOFICA heater box:

    What did you do today?

    I don't think so, the other side of the cam cage is closed more, and the bolt pattern is different, i can use an machinist dial indicator stand to check the lift if i have doubts in the power output of the engine. To see if the cam is worn down.

    What did you do today?

    Maybe you're just the first one to set it the right way. Can you check the valve lift with your tool?

    What did you do today?

    Last couple of months i've been working on fixing up an old little Niva, and wow, wow my head's spinning now, i just went to test fit the valve lash testing plat that i made on the Little Niva, and tested 2 valves and this even surprised me, factory clarence ia 0,15mm on all valves, i got 0,7mm on one and 1,05 mm on the other, now my thought is how is this engine running, and it showed factory compression on all cylinders and how worn is the cam and lifters to have almost 1 millimeter more clearance, any thoughts ?

    Fuel hard line leak. 505 STI

    Nina, if you don't do any highway driving especially when is cold, condensation in the valve cover is expected, older cars have much more primitive PCV system that can cause mayonnaise in the oil cap, this is normal. Give the car a good few hours driving to see if the mayonnaise gets worse or better before you tackle a head gasket replacement
  23. Bean

    Fuel hard line leak. 505 STI

    Engine heat / oil temp is the cure for moisture in the oil. Good t-stat, functioning PCV (ie: no plugged up screens), clean oil, and if it's getting cold make sure to use a lower viscosity oil like 5w30 or even 0w40. If the car isn't on synthetics now, I'd recommend and engine flush prior with liqui-moly or similar, and then filter changes every 1500 miles at least twice as synth will free up a lot of gunk in engine. If your oil looks like a chocolate milkshake it's a coolant leak, but if you just see white stuff with good oil on dipstick it mostly needs a good long drive. Rabin

    Fuel hard line leak. 505 STI

    I meant xn6 valve gasket set. I don’t think my t5 has a hconventional valve cover. But I’m starting to worry about it’s inaccessible turbo return line o’ring above the angle gear. its not overheating, but the white in the valve cover has me freaked. Though it rarely gets driven for any period of time. My initial drive home, I did get the engine pretty hot. The cooling fan relay had a loose ground. I may fill it up with royal purple in March, and clean the pcv screens. I wonder if throttle body cleaner would work. I’ve never done a head gasket. My torque wrench is super cheapskate. And the timing chain is daunting. No exhaust pressure from the overflow, but I didn’t rev the engine while checking. I think I read to avoid reving in park or neutral with this automatic. Snow predicted for this afternoon

    Fuel hard line leak. 505 STI

    Mentioned it previously - that's the wrong oil cap. Functioning Pcv systems reduce/prevent condensation. Volvo cover gasket set for your Volvo I hope? And no. Bad upper rad hose was bad for coolant to circulate properly. New t-stat and new hoses should get it to temp quick which helps reduce condensation. XN6 engines will blow head gaskets if head bolts not checked as per manual. Newer 505s were "supposed" to not nerd retorquing, but still adviseable by most now. Rabin

    Fuel hard line leak. 505 STI

    It’s across the street at my mechanic, with a box of parts. I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the moisture in the valve cover. I have my new radiator hoses sitting here. I also have a Volvo cover gasket set. I’m not sure if the pvc could cause that much condensation. Though the oil cap is missing a hose, which is just capped. could steam from that bunk upper hose have burst a coolant jacket? Do the aluminum xn6 blocks or heads crack?

    I’ll try them out, thanks.
