J'adore la 204...

 

I knew the first owners of Nigel's (BNP204M) and did more than a few miles in it back in the day.

Pompe Rotodiesel?

The pump is a bosch the rotadiesel filter housing was just one I had kicking around. I will have to flush the tank at some point as the 20 year old diesel is a mucky brown colour. It does seem to run ok on it though. Today's jobs have been fixing all the blown bulbs and stripping down the brakes.  I found a pair of wheel cylinders in France and managed to free off the front calipers. Tomorrows jobs will be start the welding and replace the brake pipes. Hopefully I have found an ignition switch so fingers crossed it should be on the road within a couple of weeks.

Peugeot 204 = one of the best grille/headlight combinations of its time I reckon.  So much character.  I've had a couple of 204 Coupe/Cabrios and miss them.

Those front foglights look familiar, I had a set of those on my old Mini whcih I got off the bay for £20 (the lights not the car).

Were they OEM fitment on the 204? Think they had some fancy sounding name beginning with an M if I remember correctly. Wish I'd kept them but they ended up going with the car.


Nothing of interest...

I may be wrong but I'm sure it sounded more foreign than that if you know what I mean - it was 12 years ago though so my mind may be a bit fuzzy!

These lights are sev marchal. You could be thinking of marrello they made a lamp that is similar. I have got a bit more done today, one side is all welded up and the rot is cut out the other side ready to weld it up in the morning. In other news I have had the bike running and will post a vid later.

If French, only S.E.V. Marchal, Cibié, or Auteroche come to mind.

If Italian, Magneti Marelli didn't really make aftermarket accessories, they had their daughter brand Carello for that.

Also Italian is SPE, which are extremely rare and even rarerer, SIEM.

The cream of the crop is Apuliemi, which were designed by Pinin Farina.

 

Why do I know this? I'm scared!

Don't know where I got morello from. It should of been carello. They are aftermarket lights rather than original equipment, It seems that the unit on top of the dash isn't for the fog lights I suspect it is something to do with coolant temperature but it isn't in the handbook I have got but it is a very early version of the car.

vid of the bike running. It starts really easily but if you stall it it is a nightmare to get it going again

The brake cylinders arrived today so the little pug has brakes !!!. All the welding is done just the outer sill panels to bolt back on. The dynamo has now decided to pack up so nearly ready for the mot. The headlights have an adjustable bulb holder to swap them from left to righthand drive so that was pretty painless. Fingers crossed for an mot next week then register it if the dvla ever send out the import pack I ordered over a week ago.

Well it was all going so well. I got everything back together and even had a good run round in it to bed the brakes back in. The on the morning of the mot it decided to play up and not start. It had a fueling fault and after messing with a few bits on the pump I got it to fire but then it promptly revved it's nuts off and I had to put it in gear to stop the bloody thing. So now the pump is off and with a specialist (only trouble is the only bloke who knows anything about these old bosch pumps is on holiday for a fortnight). I have had the dynamo professionaly tested and they can't fault it and as I had put a new regulator on it already we are hoping it was the old belt slipping as it was the original belt. They did say that it only starts charging at 1800rpm so although it was turning and looked like it was doing it's job the belt was probably slipping. The road test also showed up a broken rear top strut mount so that has been replaced as well. If anyone knows where I can find the boot floor and rear seat back rest coverings that would be handy. I would like to swap it for the fake wood style of the 304 so if anyone has seen one rotting away anywhere let me know.

Well I have now finally got it back up and running and through the mot. The fuel pump had to be overhauled and that took 2 attempts as the first time they did it the bloody thing blew the "pump head" whilst they were running it up on the test bed. So they pulled my spare pump apart and built one good one out of the 2. It runs a lot better now with no smoke at all. Mot time today that went well right up until he was driving it out of the workshop and the exhaust snapped. A quick bodge with a joining sleeve and I now have a pass. I will post off all the paperwork this afternoon and fingers crossed the DVLA are as good as they were last time I registered a car. I will now fit the 4 new tyres as the ones on it are fine but at least 40 years old, I have also added my French pig mascot that I used to have on the Hotchkiss, he looks quite at home on here. The Monet has now been collected off to it's new home, the chap who bought it is in his 70's and knows a lot about them. Certainly more than the VMCC who have used the wrong number on the dating certificate.

Well it is seriously slow 80kph is enough really and as you would expect it is pretty noisey, but does drive quite well as you would expect from a French car the suspension is soft and squidgy. I can give it a proper test once the V5 comes through. Hopefully it can be a bit of a daily run around. I had a look at what it owes me the other day and I wish I hadn't, why do I spend so much on old French cars.

Modern diesel estate, approved.

 

The data says it's good for 125kmh or 78mph. Could you upgrade the engine to an early 305 diesel? Not much of a power gain though.
