    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?

    It should be on the left but you don't have much room so maybe on these pumps it's on the right.

    Yep, fast idle as long as it's cold and then slow idle for less noise and more MPG. Do you have a Lucas or a Bosch pump?

    Something like this is used to raise the idle RPM when cold:

    This looks like a thermostatic actuator, maybe for a diesel injection pump or maybe the engine fan. The cruise control won't work without the speed signal, as the speedometer doesn't work either I think it's a mechanical problem with the speedo cable or the gears on the geabox.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Grandpa had Alfetta GT seats, with both the Alfa and Lada tilt mechanism as far as I remember. With the 605 ones you may need to keep the Lada mechanism but with 405 ones I know for sure that you can use the 205/309 tilt mechanism as Peugeot did it with the 309. The 605 seats share some parts but may be wider than the 405 ones.

    The guy mostly wanted the 5 speed but finally the twin cam also ended under the hood. Probably quite a bit of fun with the short gears at a red light. A few years later grandpa bought his first Niva, too bad that the 132 wasn't still rotting in the backyard.

    Fast for a Niva, and for the early 80'. At that time there wasn't that much 4WD cars around.

    Back in the day grandpa had sold his rotten Fiat 132 to a Niva owner, must have been a really fast Niva with twin cam and 5 speed.

    I remember replacing a whining gearbox after years of towing an overloaded trailer, it can be done with the exhaust in place so not too much hassle. The funny thing was when we find out that there is two Lada 5 speed gearboxes and we couldn't find anything but the wrong one.

    The Kiekert should use CR1/3N batteries, maybe even two of them looking at how it is inside.

    On mine it's on the bottom part, "NEIMAN" on this side and "PLIP" on the other. Can you take pictures of the inside?
