    I almost got to see the best 405 Mi16 in the world owned by Savo in Cali while visiting my brother but not enough time.

    505 sedan rear shocks

    Maybe they do have Mike but i don't know what they look like and not having eg to compare with whats in there can be iffy. Would look into it though. There's an old die hard Peugeot guy here am sure prob has one in his archives which means more digging through stuff

    505 sedan rear shocks

    Went yesterday Sat all prep to do serious dig for other side shock, torch light, bottle water etc. 4min into search there it was, looking right at me on 2nd shelf. Amazing how when you looking for something it's invisible right there 1st time. So happy now...but..had hunt around for missing nut at top with fine thread. I did comparison with with blue shock no brand stamp, just says made in U.S.A. The compression/rebound same rate, whereas Koni is softer on compression but same on rebound stiffness at full 2 turns in. So i set it at 1.5 turns in using Koni logo as starting point. They both missing spacer/rubber bumper insert. Are they really necessary, would shock ever see full compression? Will mount them today and see if notice any diff, been over month since so. 1st yellow Koni sport seems close to 505 type
  8. Anyone have experience with adjustable Koni shocks? My shock broke on me about 4 weeks ago and i found shop with NOS of shelves with endless shocks all types. So far as my luck goes i found 3 different brands of 1 sides that matches up to 505 with Koni being exactly for 505. Am going back on weekend to do all out full sweat stock room search see if find other side of Koni 80 or whatever pair. Question...if i do get Koni pair what is good range to adjust them....soft ...middle...or stiff? Am running Sr20DET engine so...maybe stiffer? Don't want hassle of unbolting just too keep adjusting all time.

    Hello everyone

    Ok i don't want be the wet pants here, but swapping different engine into the 504/505 cars can be a pain. But if you do pursue this challenge forget about 6cylinders... too long unless you dont care for A/C and this will be your 'special' car. I have SR20DET automatic trans which was installed by previous owner through some hatch guys who did poor job. The Diff also changed to Nissan LSD so u can imagine all axles and drive shaft issues! I have gotten it to decent stage with tolerable driving comfort and slight vibrations. I would trade for original Peugeot engine if i could but all gone in my country hence reason for swap. Here's link to Australian site guy did swap...best i seen because kept original drive train with mods of course. http://www.aussiefrogs.com/forum/googlesearch.php?cx=partner-pub-5717081065219312%3Ajgylnj-1z2n&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=505+sr20det Had some links to Indonesia & Malaysia where those guys swap out everything, suspension, RB20/25 , Jz, Sr20....mad stuff. If you got the skills fabricating stuff then yeah make nice project of it. Will post links when i find them ..lost the book marks.

    Here are some pics hope they help or maybe u got it sorted out by now. I don't think the lines can be mixed up as they are of different size threaded couplings. Been awhile since saw original 505 compressor but am sure will be different sized attachments.

    My 89 MI16

    double nice....
  12. Here's a link to this service & mod, i think its Russian but easy to follow. 405 and Berlingo share same rear set up. This is ideal mod with 2 nipples tapped directly where bearings will be if decide take on huge task of taking apart and fitting new ones. If you doing it assembled on the car then tapping into middle area is where you should instead of 105mm as in pic, because that's exactly where needles are!! But i know it's hard to resist doing it the 'right way'...
  13. Anyone know's the the right order in which the green & white plastic bearings go? I've done this couple years ago, but now i think am second guessing myself if i did it the right way. Not sure if the thicker green one goes in first followed by ball or thinner white then ball...?? This is last ball joint kit local supplier has so don't want to muck it up.
  14. Has anyone ever experience any rattling issue coming from rear disk calipers on 505s? When driving over potholes,bad roads or hustle over a speed bump,sounds like if 3 small spanners are inside trailing arms .... Been under there with rubber mallet whacking around but don't think its enough impact to render effect from what a pothole will give. Don't think had this noise before i switched over to disk from drum.
