I have the repair manual for the 1548cc diesel in a 305 if you need any of it scanned in. I don't know how closely related they are.

At last I have finally got the Pug running properly. I have had trouble ever since I got it going with the charging circuit. I replaced the regulator with one of those modern solid state type ones but still no luck. I then had the dynamo checked and the only fault they could find was it wouldn't cut in until 1800rpm. It was charging but only putting about half a volt in so changed the belt in case it slipped under load. Still didn't work. As a last resort I got a secondhand dynamo from Germany. Just the same except when the regulator was disconnected it started chucking out the correct voltage. I ring up the company I got the regulator from and say it must be faulty, go through all the tests I have done etc then he tells me I had ordered the wrong one FFS!!! When I ordered it I told him what it was for. I now have the correct one and all is well, what a nightmare

Well I have been running around in the little 204 and it is great, very slow but still great. I used the bike rack for the first time the other week and it really was rubbish so today the mig welder came out to play and a few modifications were made. I also got some new number plates from Tippers. The gasps of disbelief when I asked for reflective plates for a classic car were unbelieveable. I do think reflective plates look better on this and if it had been registered new in the UK it would probably of had them as they were the latest thing back in 1968. I will be using it for the classic car meet at Haselbury mill near Crewkerne on new years day, taking the Vespino along as well.

Excellent plate decision! Looks superb. 

 

As for the Maxi lamps, when I was really young and didn't know better, I thought these were Maxi estates. I'm talking when I was about six here. My poor parents. "Why has that Maxi estate got a different nose?"

That looks superb, +1 I don't think it'd look as good with black and silver plates.

 

45bhp isn't bad at all for a 1.3 diesel from the 1960s, but I wonder if it'd accept some boost. What kind of injection pump is fitted, is it an 'in-line' Bosch?

The Vespino looks like the automotive equivilent of a lifeboat for when you have a breakdown in the Pug!!! I really like this 204, stylish practical car.

 

Re: the number plates - I don't know why people have such a hard-on over black&whites, cars from the 60's onwards (certainly everything from 70's on) looks better with yellow/whites and most had that from new anyway.

It is a Bosch pump but that is all it says on it. The pipework is all on the rear end and it looks like a modern pump. It did cost me a few quid to have it overhauled and they told me that parts are unavailable and to change the filters very reguarly, so as much as I think it would run on veg it won't be getting any. The engines on these early cars (I believe this is one of the first 500 diesel's built) were a weak point so I need to be careful with trying to improve performance. It will sit at 50 happily enough so that will do.

Those reflective plates are absolutely bang-on, I hate inappropriate black and white plates and only had them on my '67 Oxford because at the time I couldn't get period reflective ones. Most new cars in 1968 would have had them, just a pity Tippers cant do 'em pre-bent and pre-soiled....

That really is a delightful car

The V6 lump is out of the Maserati. The guy who bought it was supposed to of taken the spare lump as well but the recovery truck driver wouldn't take it.

I don't think winter salt is such an issue in the tropical south of England.

Not sure yet on the Vespino as I am awaiting a load of bits from Spain, but it will owe me around 300 I think but should have pretty much every thing sorted for an mot

Yeap no salt on the roads down here I think so far this winter the gritters have been out once.

Love these cars so much but undecided on the plates.  Still tend to think 60s cars look better on black plates.  Here's one local to me:

I'm not sure about silver digits, prefer white if I had to. Mind you, if I had an old Wolseley, I'd rig up a back-light and have TRANSLUCENT digits to go with the grille badge.

It's been a while so lets have a little update. There is a lack of pictures for this one as I left my camera in the workshop and won't be back in until Tuesday. The little 204 has been running well with no problems for the very limited amount of use it has had this year and went through it's second mot no trouble at all. I have added  the air horns that came off the last Rolls Royce for a laugh and managed to find an A.C.O grille badge that I have been after for a few years. It will be going to Bicester for drive it day next weekend so a few jobs will have to be done this week. It needs a service really as it has been a year since last done and I now have a set of fancy alloy wheels to fit. The wheels came attached to a Dutch registered 304 saloon that I picked up on friday. There wasn't a collection thread as the forum was playing up and it wasn't that exciting. Anyway I now have a 304 for breaking, to be honest it would probably be restoreable as it must of been in very good condition when it had it's accident many years ago. The impact has damaged the rear end of the chassis rail and floor but would pull out. The trouble is even if it was restored to mint condition it is only worth maybe a couple of grand and you would easily spend that getting it right so not worth the trouble. The floors and front subframe are actually still solid and even the outer sill covers are good. The plan for it is to get it running first then strip it completly and cut the shell up with a plasma cutter to save any useful repair panels. Most bit's will be available if anyone needs anything. I will have the dash and heater out of it for my 204 as the blower is shit and there are a few bulb holders that have fallen to bits on the instrument panel.

Right I now have my camera and have had a play with the 304. I started with the wheels, pretty straight forward just swapping the tyres over. The rims were really good so probably reconditioned not long before it's accident.PEUGEOT204 013.JPG

They do look pretty smart, but could do with some center caps.

PEUGEOT204 029.JPG

I also changed the oil and filter and fuel filter as they have been on there over a year now.

PEUGEOT204 031.JPG

Now for the 304. I had a proper look at the rot situation and it really isn't worth restoring so todays job has been to get it running and then start stripping it.

PEUGEOT204 010.JPG

As arrived

A couple of hours later

PEUGEOT204 017.JPG

The interior is pretty horrid so I don't think I will save much other than the dash board which is better than mine.

001.JPG

003.JPG

There are a few new life forms growing in there. I am not looking forward to have to climb insde it so I think I will cut the roof and doors off with the plasma cutter first. I ordered some new tips for it at the weekend and they might take a while to arrive from China.

002.JPG

Now for the easy bit, getting it running !. I rigged up a remote fuel supply and a couple of battery cables and it started straight away.

Your 304 seems unusual to me in that it has a 204 type fascia and binnacle, don't think I've seen one like that before and should help with bits for your 204.  I remember the very late 204 Coupes and Cabrios had a floor shift and 304 normal 'cliff edge' fascia but not the other way round.

I don't know the age of this one but it has late type rear lights and grille. I suspect they went back to the earlier type dash as the "pod" fits a few different Peugeots so I am lead to believe. Although it looks identical the top crash pad is slightly different and I suspect the heater is as well but hopefully I can make them fit.

A quiet week is good news for the little Pug as I am starting to sort the bodywork out ready to get it resprayed. First up the front wings were removed as mentioned in the news 24 thread. I could of filled them but a chance of an almost new pair in France wasn't to be missed. The guy even dropped them off to me whilst I was at Le Mans.

008.JPG

The old N/S wing had a hole at the top and the O/S one down near the bottom by the door.

009.JPG

It wasn't too bad under the wings but the N/S inner needed a few patches where the wing was bolted to the A panel. I also  remade the front end of the sill which had a sheared captive bolt.

005.JPG

The inner wing behind the headlight was a bit involved to plate up especially as no one will see it once the headlight is back in.

006.JPG

007.JPG

That's enough for today. Tomorrow I will weld up the other side which is no where near as bad. Then stick some rust killer stuff before sealing it and painting the inner wings.
