I really want to get involved in all these XUD shenanigans, but it's all happening at least 2 hours from me. Bloody Aberdeen being out on this peninsula.

Good luck LP!

I'm busy this weekend, but if you need a hand during the big works happening in future, I'm up for a trip to the highlands.

The Xsara's engine runs like a great.
Nearly all of the parts have been collected, just need to put it all together...

Try and get a front mount intercooler from a pug or xantia in time too. More airflow.

Clearly not! Pleasing diesel cackle present.

That's the plan eventually but I just want to get it in there for now.

Safety first.
Fluids drained and most things disconnected. The fixings came off easily, even the exhaust at the manifold. It's quite easy to work on and has more space between the engine and bulkhead than other diesel PSA vehicles I've worked on.

Rot found. It's a common problem, overlapping weld exposed to road grime. The wheel arch at that point is only exposed metal, the liner doesn't extend that far. It's otherwise free from rust, the sills and underside are immaculate, it looks like it's been rust treated at some point.

The 85% rule means that the tow car should be 85% of the trailer's weight, right?

Looks ok* to me.

Thats why I dislike "wheels under" style trailers. Nothing like having the centre of gravity of your payload at head-height.

 

 

 

 

Maybe its just the photo but do I see some worryingly funky camber on the front trailer axle?

If the axle is OK remove it before anything happens to car mate. Worth holding on to.
