  1. It's been year and a half since the last update and almost that long since i've driven this car. I've been working with couple of companies to get sponsored for a ECU ( programmable engine management) for this car but no luck, no one has even heard of that engine. I've been running the engine every couple of months just to keep the fluids circulating and the seals from drying. And i've bought some parts that will solve the bump steer issue and make boosting it much easier.
  2. I wanted to update this thread, since then i've switched jobs, different drive to work also changed fuel station and the fuel economy came back, i'm around 7-8l/100km which for this type of driving, city and country, is good, my thoughts are bad fuel + hevy city driving and me being in a hurry did it, now i'm putting less mileage but almost always with 5 people in the car. I'm amazed how many trouble free kilometres this engine has passed with me and my brother i was very tempted to change it with a spare one i have when i did a clutch change couple of weeks back but at the last minute i keep it.
  3. I'm no expert on those engines but from experience, heat seal bolt in location or lifting plate bolt, i'll be more concerned about that oil leak and dry rot on the coolant hose coming from the the cilinder head
  4. Wow Mike, the progress looks great, a fresh interior makes a project come together, and start to look complete also the engine seems to be in excellent shape not to mention is over 50 years of age, you've have to take good care of it during your ownership. Also nice of you to share your travels, hope you are enjoying the 208, and the square steering wheel.
  5. Nice choose, on the turbocharger, those Gen2 are amazing, the response and the spool up times are so quick, on a good tune feels like a v8 no turbo lag at all. Keep up the good work.
  6. I'm late as usual to say, a very interesting project, have you considered using a Opel Omega 2,5td gearbox, like i did. What turbocharger are you planning to use.
  7. Backyard paint shop, it is starting to look like my place, Savo. By "405 classic’s" do you mean from a series 2 405's ?
  8. 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.
  9. 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 ?
  10. 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
  11. The 405 can relay be improved in the insolation department at the back, peugeot revisited them and applied the tar style insolation in the later series 2 405 . I've put additional insolation in almost all the 405 i've own, the Mi16x4 has two layers of tar style on the entire wheel arch and the rear wings are full of fiberglass insulation. This really helps improve the ride quality on the highway. Have you try writing to European auto parts, they seem to have OEM parts for china prices, couple of my friends started ordering parts from them because of their quality, they don't have peugeot listed, but a friend did bought couple of sensors from them for a peugeot by just sending them an e-mail . www.eeuroparts.com
  12. What did you use to clean the trunk sides so good? Are you planning to add some insolation over the rear wheel arches and the trunk floor? Front windscreens are around 100 euro here.
  13. Time really fly along, you'll doing a great job on the interior, have you located couple of windscreens for it. Is this a BE1 gearbox car with a pull style reverse gear?
  14. I wanted to update this thread, this winter we have had record low temperatures and snow, but the 605 has had no issues with fuel freezing, the factory fuel heater is connected and after a longer drive i've put my hand on the fuel tank and is little warm, it seems the warm return fuel is helping a lot. This year after changing jobs i'm using my car even more and last two months, i've been driving it in minus double digits with no difficulties at all, starts better then when warm.
  15. There is a common leak, the gasket on the fuel pump/sender unit, dry rots after 20 years and when you fill up the tank spills out from the top and because of the acces panel under the back seat the smell is noticeable in the cabin, check there for wetness.
