  1. What’s the condition of the front struts? I may be interested if they aren’t rusty, and someone is willing to pull it apart. I’d be using them in an 86 sedan.
  2. 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

    How do you undo the clevis? There isn’t a clear depiction in my manual. Is it intuitive? and the fluid won’t spill out of the master cylinder when the booster is detached? Manual says to use a new gasket. I don’t have a new gasket, and I’ll be installing a used part.
  4. Update: after playing with every I could reach which appeared to be connected to the climate control system, and adjusting incrementally, while listening to the clicking solenoid, I eventually found a fulcrum point on the temperature slider which was like a hair between clicks while adjusting, I went for a drive, took some sharp turns, drove up a hill, while fiddling with the adjuster, then presto HEAT. heres another link to a manual on the 86 climate control system: http://peugeot505.info/files/manuals/505_my86_hv.pdf
  5. So my 86 sti 505 has no heat at the moment, or intermittent at best. It was working a few hours into my 12 hour maiden voyage home after purchasing the car. The other day I was enjoying the heat, but was feeling overwhelmed and decided to try my luck by adjusting the temperature control slider. I moved it from the top to about 1/4 down around 85. That was it for having heat. I pulled a big long sensor out of the heater core area, and broke the corner of the air sensor on my dash off while trying to pry up to look in. I guess it just feed ductwork and isn't the same style as the long one? I can't figure out where the heater valve is. I've played with the little silver box near the vent infront of the jetronic computer. I've found a couple threads on the HVAC subject: Peugeot 505 Series II Temperature Control HVAC tutorial Earlier 505 (84) heater valve with photos: where to find heater core valve replacement Where is the Heater control Valve? Can it be manually adjusted? Should i knock on it while trying to manipulate an adjustment? Is there a sensor in the engine compartment? I can hear a click around the ECU. I hear nothing along the lines of a valve being actuated. How much coolant should I have in my expansion bottle? It's freekin' cold here today. Climate control and sunroofs are on my avoid list, and of course this Peugeot has both.

    5/16 = 7.938mm, won’t work in lieu of 8mm? What spec coolant does this 86 505 Sti drink? Pretty sure it’s full of GM Dex-cool at the moment. Must the brake fluid reservoir be drained before unbolting and disconnecting from the booster? Can I use dot 4? I'll extract and fill a few times with a large syringe. The gar brakes very well. I'd like to install pads and rotors and lubricate the brakes soon. possibly just explore and clean / dab of lubricant first. I haven't jacked the car up yet. I noticed there are sturdy looking frame rails. should I try to place my jack under there? There appears to be a central jack point in the front? Mine looks to have a little touch of rust, which i should probably address with a wire brush followed with white encapsulation or converter spray. It's too cold for that at the moment. I'd rather not jack the front center, which would block access to the oil pan anyway.

    Any chance my brake booster hiss is related to the PCV system? considering my missing hose, should I be worried? I need to trace those hoses, but it’s so cold out. couldn't find an 8mm square. Actually ended up ordering a 5/16 square drain plug socket.

    Radiator hoses for Sti? I’m assuming those are tough to find. Radiator upper CH1892 Lower CH1893 upper and lower, and a thermostat. What thermostat? There’s a Chinese made one with a plastic housing. And some loose ones. whats the gasket situation in there?

    Where is the radio fuse on this thing? None of those maxi fuses seemed burnt, but the mid section of the circuit board traces seemed toast. even if I run a dedicated positive 12volt for the radio, I’ll need a trigger. Is there a circuit which is constant once the key is inserted?

    That funky cap was correct. I've never had a press on oil cap before. I splashed 100ml of atf in the reservior. I don't have dex 2. Couldn't find any leaks, just a greasy mark on the tire, so who knows. I'll check it tomorrow, see if if its still there. I know of one can, $14 quart of dex 2.

    Where do I fill my oil? Is that funky non-cap looking thing with the two broken off hoses? Do i need a different Oil cap? Notice my Power steering reservoir is empty. Greasy mark on my front passenger tire. Is that the rack leaking, or are there potentially leaky rubber lines? I was hearing some groan on sharp turns. Guess that's why I've been contemplating PS fluid.

    That canister is in there. How does it open? I don’t have any experience with oil filled air filters. Like on construction equipment. is there a guide for the air filter?

    Considering Febi 08972, a Mercedes certified Dex 2 spec power steering fluid as opposed to ATF. Ordered a used booster. bidding on an air filter, which seems like a real PITA to get at. I'll find some diff fluid, and lube the center carrier of the drive shaft. I'm trying to figure out the crush washer situation for the drains on this car. What are the washers? Are they the same on all drains? Does the trans, engine, and diff all utilize the same size drain plug gasket? Copper or aluminum? Whats the oil volume for an engine drain and fill? I bought 5qts, enough?

    Fixed the signals. So cold today, was afraid to work on those fragile wires. Should have used a heat gun, but it went back together. blue wire was snapped off indicator. But it was rearranged to go straight to a black wire in the bulb socket, so butt connection fixed the front. Corrosion on the socket in the tail light. picked up some oil to do a change. managed to reach a single booster bolt. Wish I could oil the knee bolster or something to get in there easier. My hands aren’t small. What weight does the rear diff take? 80w90? 75w110? I wonder if I should go to synth power steering instead of atf or whatever dark fluid is in there. Or full synth atf. Can you use chf 11s?

    The car is enjoyable so far. Aside from the turn signal issue. I need to fix the signal first. Maybe a new stalk or circuit board, if bulbs don’t fix it. if i can replace the booster myself, and I’m still enjoying it, I’ll bring it to stage 1. once I change the oil I’ll check out the PCV. How do you open that canister? Clean it with gas? Or a spray cleaner? Thanks to everyone on this forum, so I’m not alone with this project. I genuinely appreciate everyone’s input and interest. This car interested me far more than a redblock Volvo, and aside from the sunroof, is exactly what I want in a car, once it’s tuned up and squared away. might look into white reust converter paint for the few flaws along the inside bottom of the doors and so forth. with turn signals I can get to the car wash to get this salt off, and park it till I get a booster.
