  1. 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.

    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.

    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.
  4. 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.

    For changing the brake booster you don't need to drain the reservoir or open the system at all, unbolt the master cylinder and tie it up with a bungee cord and remove the booster and install the new one. When jacking up a vehicle to work under, i support it with as many jack stands as i can and always do it on a level ground.

    I bought it from couple of smugglers, no paperwork at all, in terrible shape, both bumpers broken, the wavy door trims missing on some of the doors, leaking power steering it had 4 wheel steering, and 4wd and a engine knock, at first not to bad but by the end of the week in which i own it sounded like a diesel, preity sure connecting rod bearing, because it was illegal i wanted to strip it for parts but couple young guys offerd to buy it so i sold it, some time later i heard they crush it in a bridge and i think it got impounded by the police, it was a us spec car with a brass badge in the middle of the dashboard, dark grey in color, too bad i coud have a 4g63t rebuildable engine.

    I have no experience with those particular engine but most likely it has the older bigger style thermostat, i'll recommend if is working don't mess with it, you'll remove better part then you'll install, the thermostat on my 605 engine had over 2 million kilometers before it failed, here is a thread on how it looked after all that time.

    This engine bay looks pretty bad, indoor charger, on top of the fan shroud, diy red wires and relay, universal radiator hose that is kinked, Peugeot runs a external hydraulic cylinder next to the steering rack and they are very reliable, never had one leak, they can get greasy and dirty but simple cleaning gets them looking good, for the radio there are two fuses F4 10A and F12 5A if i remember right, one is 12+ from the battery and other is switched power from the acc circuit, depending on the trim level, peugeot has lots of wires going to the radio connectors, like lights power, electric antenas, factory amplifier, antenna amplifier and many others, also there is usually an fues on the back of the radio it self that is worth checking.

    The word "drains" got me little confused but i figured you're talking about the drain plugs, the engine drain plugs have M16x1,5 thread so an M16 copper washers should do the job, i can't remember right maybe the fill plug on the diff was taper thread meaning it uses teflon tape, as for the key they all should be 8mm square, i've made my own from and old socket extension, with and angle grinder cut a square and grounded it to fit, there is some pictures that can give you an idea how to change the diff oil in my RWD conversion thread i'll put an link here: http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/3254-91-405mi16x4-rear-wheel-drive-conversion-north-south-engine/&page=1

    The Audi 2,7 biturbo engines are junk, no way i'm putting them in anything, 4G63T or a 2JZ gti if i could buy one cheaply i'll have no problem doing a engine swap this will be a weekend toy not a everyday daly driver, i still regret for selling the galant vr4 that had a knocking engine. Would made a great donor.

    OEM lada seats are gone, previous owner has welded in some awful fiesta seats, i'll stop by the junkyard tomorrow and look at the seat rails from a 205 gti. Peugeot sure knows how to make good seats, the 605's are perticulaty comfortable.

    I think the 2 liter engine bolt pattern is different to the lada pattern so was simpler for him to make new engine mounts and put it in. Any advice on how to put Peugeot 605 seats in the little Niva, by may measurements each seat is 10 centimeters wider and the back is totally different

    Best way to reach those booster bolts i've found is to lay on the seat upside down, head in the foot were back on the seat bottom and legs over the headrest and you can see all the way up to the dash vents, head pillow can come in handy if you have cheap tools. Rear diff takes 80w90 oil, about 1,3 liters, fill it till starts to run out of the fill hole, power steering uses dexron 2 and from experience you should not put anything else but dexron 2 if you don't want leaks.

    If only one side works on the side indicators is probably wire or the indicator stalk because it uses the same relay for both sides only the stalk changes the side to which is connected, did you try the hazerts ( all indicators at once), do all the indicators work than, if not start with the connectors and wiring

    There should be a big rubber grommet with no wires thru it on the passenger side just above the blower motor, i suggest you use it as is away from the engine harness and you won't get any strange interference when you use the stereo. The brake booster has 4 13mm nuts on the back you must access them from inside the car above the pedals, two extensions and a swivel make the job a lot easier also smaller hands get less scraps, don't forget to undo the clevis pin to the pedal.

    116 italian horsepower thru 3 open diff in a shell of 1300 kg won't be very fast, i've driven a niva with 20v turbo engine from the fiat coupe turbo around 200hp, the 4wd makes it dull, only comes alive between 4500-6000 rpm at full boost.

    Sence you in car stereo, don't forget to drill 5 holes in the firewall and don't use rubber grommets, leave it for the next guy to deal with it, haha.

    They are easy to change couple of bolts on many cars you can just move the master cylinder a side and don't need to bleed the entire system.

    Just buy an new brake booster or a used one they are not a serviceable item.

    If is coming from the brake booster that can be a ripped diaphragm and when you press the brake pedal the diaphragm seals agas the housing, this is simple to diagnose, by removing and plugging the vacuum hose for the vacuum booster at the engine side and start the engine if there is no noise is the booster, there is no electronics there to burn out but failed brake booster is a safety concern.

    Having two cars give you relief you'll always have something to drive but also is one more member to maintain and spend money on, all my adult life i've had at least two registered cars, one as daly other as a spare, manly to drive when doing maintenance or if i wreck my daly driver, all Peugeot i've owned have been exesonaly reliable and fun to drive, i hate the dull rubbery ride all cars have now days, my practice with any car i buy is to go thru it fix all the essentials full service good detail cleaning and drive it and do scheduled maintenance. I'm also driving a lot, 3-500 km a day and is not uncommon to double that during the summer.

    For the indicators, try changing the light bulbs first, also check for ground and corrosion at the bulb sockets, the rear tail light are renown for their bad grounds, the car itself looks alright, couple of dings and dents but solid with decent paint.

    I like the way you cheat, by putting the tires on some carpet to get the last few millimeters so a pepsi can, can fit. The car is looking awesome keep it up Savo.
