    WTB: 505 TD Manual flywheel

    Hi Dave, Do you have access to the flywheel - pictures might help someone identify it better if they can see it. There's a gentleman (Larry) that is advertising a Peugeot package and he *might* have a flywheel in the parts lot. My xd3t 5sp flywheel is functional in the car so no help there. BTW: Is something wrong with yours? Or are you doing a 5sp swap into an auto? I'd also recommend calling Mike Aube or Brian Holm up to discuss options - they might even have a flywheel. Rabin

    1983 505 & 1982 604 +Engines, Parts, Manuals

    Hi Larry - thanks for the update. 1982 likely means a XD2S Turbo diesel (2.3L) with a Bosch VE injection pump. As for more pictures: If you can take pictures of all 4 lower door seams, both side of engine compartment, dog legs inside rear doors, and inside trunk without the matt or carpet - that should show how rust free the car is. I wish I was in the market as I have a beautifully running 1986 505 TD 5sp that would make that 604 right. I did forward it to a friend though who might be interested. Thanks, Rabin

    1983 505 & 1982 604 +Engines, Parts, Manuals

    Rabin, The 604 is a 1982 model. I stopped by this evening, but couldn't get the hood open by myself because it didn't want to pop up on its own when I pulled the hood release. It was too dark out to get good pictures of the wheel wells of the car, but I was able to get a decent look at it and could not see any rust. Known issues with this car: driver's door doesn't want to open, the linkage is messed up somehow, brakes are quite draggy at the moment, battery is totally dead, even with a charge it didn't want to turn the starter or run the power windows. Yes, it is a 5 speed. As to the 505, to the best of my knowledge all it needed was a running engine to be road-worthy. The paint on that car has a few issues, but I haven't spotted any obvious body damage. It is my intention to sell both cars, the parts, engines and manuals as a complete lot, rather than try to break up the collection. Thanks for you interest, and I will try to get some better pictures of the engine in the car as well as the two in the shop for identification purposes. Larry

  6. Hello all.. I'm looking for a manual transmission flywheel for my XD3T ('85 505 TD). Anyone out there have one they're willing to part with? And does anyone know if these are interchangeable with any other (8 bolt) flywheel? Thanks! Dave

    Thanks for the location Larry. I'm assuming the 505 is a parts car for the 604 as it looks like it'd be a lot of work to save. The 604 however looks in amazing shape. It would be ideal if you could take pictures to verify it's rust free. It should also be a 5sp, but the year would help figure out what motor should be in it. Head should have a casting number on it saying XD2 or XD3. Thanks, Rabin

    I used it earlier today, thank you.
  9. I have been getting a surprising number of compliments from folks when they see my 505, which is a delight.. There has been a lot of young people who are curious. I just had one the other day, and he said that he has only seen them in video games. Well, I got curious, and googlemooglied it. Yup, there's a site for that sort of thing: Pages and pages. Lots of rally cars, a handful of 505s. http://www.igcd.net/vehicles.php?make=Peugeot Now I have to get an xbox or whatever it takes..

    Giving a 405 Sport Wagon another chance

    Unfortunately I never had a chance to modify GTI6 front brakes to make them fit and front brakes could not take no more abuse so I just ordered factory replacement trough Rock Auto. Rotors were only $12 each and pads were $14, I also end up getting new slide pin boots, slide pin bolts and little screws that hold rotors in place.

  12. Selling my friend's Peugeot collection for his widow. 2 diesel cars, 604 with engine installed (was running when it was parked in the shop a couple of years ago...), and a 505 with the engine removed. Includes (2) diesel engines in the shop (minus the stands), many, many extra parts and a good selection of manuals. Asking $2700.00 for the whole collection. I am no Peugeot expert by any means, so please peruse the photos I have included and feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to provide reasonable answers. I'm really hoping this collection can go to someone who will appreciate it! Reasonable offers considered. Thanks, Larry

    When I pick this car up it had about 137.000 miles and now it’s at 200.000 miles, just little over 50.000 miles on this GTI6 engine since it was imported. It’s still my daily driver and most of the time it’s used as a truck 🙂

If the cars are not removed , the property owner has agreed to take all the cars to the local junk yard , so please help. If you take this car away, it's yours. JoE joelandy at aol dot comb

    505 12hr drive

    It's electronic ignition so no points. Is this a new purchase or do you know the car? Dextron 2 if you can find it is best, but you need to ensure all fluids are topped off at least. If it's a new to you car you should really try to get someone close to look at it for you, or pay a shop for a pre-purchase inspection. Getting AAA might also be good. It's pretty easy to set up a 12V plug if needed, and it should be pretty easy to tap into something under the dash. I travel with a battery pack when camping, but it charges off the car when driving so that it's able to works as a booster if needed as well. Rabin

    505 12hr drive

    If I’m going, it’s less than two weeks out, or too much snow risk. Sti automatic 505 86, facelift year. couldn’t find an ignition points cartridge, not considering a fuel pump, since I’m flying and driving back. Distributor cap and rotor are eBay items. I’ll look up the fuel filter in the service manual, but I’m assuming I could get a generic at any parts store? considering buying a boost pack with 12volt lighter sockets, when I arrive. Might buy a jug of water and some 10w40 for the trunk. Would want a jug of dex 3 atf? I don’t want to be stranded. I’m going to pass on the car if it shifts weird. Not sure how to test the charging system.

    Check the fuses for a blown one - double check there's nothing inside the sockets as well before replacing them. How long do you have before you leave? And what year / model 505 is it? Rabin

    505 12hr drive

    The cigarette lighter sockets aren’t working in the car. pretty essential for a long drive with a cell phone and hopefully GPS, since the speedo isn’t working. Any insight?

    505 12hr drive

    Long drives in old Peugeots is not a problem they are not italian, if you don't know the car some parts are good idea, i usually bring, spare fuel filter, fuel pump, points , coil, jumper pack and some oil, check the charging system before setting off and enjoy the drive.
  25. Bean

    505 12hr drive

    Mostly depends on current condition of the car. Checking the car over prior to the trip is your best bet - if it checks out 95% of your breakdown risk is gone. Highway miles are particularly easy on a car, so as long as it's been maintained well it should be fine. (You should be able to remember things like last tune up, oil change etc.) Good tires and at proper pressure also good. Rabin

    Looking to drive like 10+ hours home in a 505. Any essential spare parts you’d certainly pack for the trip? Distributor cap or points? Thermostat? Wrench for accessory belt? Anything?
