  2. If there is little mayo on the rad cap don't worry about it too much could be reminice from a previous repair where it never got clean out properly, also some mayo on the oil cap is normal if you doing short trips, taxi's here those problems often, short destinations expensive gasoline, so they get shut down after every drive, just keep an eye on it and don't worry about it.
  3. Proper stage 1 for this car would be to retorque the head and adjust valves. Most people neglected doing it. Some may argue the newer versions did not not need retorquing but it will never hurt it when done properly. Adjusting valves can also make a huge improvement. PCV screens I mentioned should be cleaned and functional, but short trips in cold weather will always cause condensation which results in mayo under the cap. Rad hose - maybe zip tie the highest arc of that top hose over and down so there's no high spot for now - rad outlet should be highest part of hose. BTW - never randomly connect wires without knowing what they are and how they work. A multimeter and test light are essential tools for Peugeot ownership. Rabin
  4. upper and lower rad hoses are coming from in from Australia. I noticed a couple dots of “mayo” under the oil filler cap. Fingers crossed the head/gasket is ok. i noticed a loose wire, about 5’ long going to the negative battery terminal. Connected it to a nearby relay and the electric fan later came on. Added some coolant, heater is working. really nervous of white under oil filler cap. It was minimal, but now I’m spooked

    In that case I'd likely modify the mounting lug for perfect alignment, or if you can - modify the engine mount to suit the GM alternator. One time mod and then you can replace as needed anytime. The added output makes everything work so much better - especially at idle. Rabin

    That was my bad you might I just typically look in the diesel tech section so I probably passed it on accident. How bad was your deflection with the belt? With 5 belts and the alternator one being the closest to the block I just don’t want it fly off and take em all down with it.

    I thought I had a post detailing the GM alternator retrofit. Basically need to get a 1985 GM/Chevy 350 alternator. There's a two wire connector that plugs into the side, and the B+ post that connects to the battery. One of the two goes to the B+, the other wire is the signal wire from the original Bosch/PR. Rabin
  8. Stumbled across this and thought I'd see if you had made any progress? Rabin

    And if I remember right some of the gas ones might have the same Bosch unit so diesels should be somewhat familiar.

    What was the model number for the gm alt that you use? I still need to return the Bosch unit that don’t fit and see what I’d be looking at if I can install it if I can get one

    Whoops - I saw 83 505s and though xn6 gas motor. That said - I'm pretty sure it would be a similar thing to fit a Chevy alternator. Rabin

    Paris rhone alternator fun

    Yes it is Paris Rhône, I bought a Bosch unit since 99.999% of the car had Bosch parts but just not the alternator, I only found that out by trying to fit the fan and pulley onto the new one. What needs to be modified to retrofit that GM part to it and do you have the part number for it so I can look into buying one?

    Do you have the stock one and is it PR? If so just call around as they're usually very rebuildable and usually a lot cheaper that way. Personally - I much prefer to retrofit a GM alternator. 80A stock and they power the accessories so much nicer than any of the stock alternators. It bolts on with slight belt deflection which never gave an issue, but it'd be easy to modify the mounting lug for perfect alignment. Rabin
  16. Anyone know where I could find me a Paris Rhône alternator? I can get the Bosch ones all day long but the Paris are all out of stock from the vendor as it’s also out of stock on amazon. Anyone have any luck on knowing where I can get one so I can get my 505 back on the road? Also it’s a 83 505s sedan with the turbo diesel.

    Pretty clever but it could only work as long as the test guy doesn't notice ; if he is that friendly then one way to pass is to test another car.

    What did you do today?

    You can use LPG to pass the test, i've done it once to legalise one 405, i turn down the injection pump to the point it will idle only at full throttle, and install a carburetor style lpg system with a barbeque propane tank behind the passenger seat, used brake booster vacuum line solenoids and regulators to make it run good and passed no problem even had more power, i swiched it back to diesel the next day after it passed.

    France is planning to crank it up again in 2022 with a NOx test. At this time maybe I will need some trickery to make it pass.

    What did you do today?

    Good old european emissions test, i'm just waiting when my country will enforce emissions, 80% of cars and 98% of buses on the roads will not be in compliance including everything in my driveway.

    What did you do today?

    Yesterday my 309 turbo diesel was due to technical inspection, 455000 km (282724 miles), original engine and tighter rules for smoke opacity test... what could go wrong anyway? As it turns out french diesel emission rules for a 1991 car are not that hard to satisfy: no cat, no EGR, no ODB and even more leeway for turbo. So I'm good for at least two more years.
  23. Rabin is right, the thermostatic valve on the heater core can't sense the temperature of water if there's air stuck in it, and that hose is higher then the radiator and is acting like an Air reservar letting and getting air bubbles all the time, it's the radiators cap job to relieve any air from the system when the system cools down in the overflow bottle, that hose is keeping the air from entering the radiator.

    The clevis pin has a split pin or a C clip holding it on one side by removing it you can pull out the pin it self. Every manuel refers always use new gasket, but those gaskets never wear down, i've reused them, if is too bad make your own from paper or gasket material, as for spilling use common sense, tee it up by the reservoir cap i've never had issue with spilling it, if you spill some, use water it cleans brake fluid very well.
  25. Did you fix that rad hose Goce and I both pointed out? Would bet money thats playing a part. Rabin

    I do have paypal, but just be aware shipping will be pricey as well. Can you PM me your address and I'll try to get a price for shipping first. Rabin
