Yesterday I unloaded the trailer and had a look at what I have bought. The Mobilette is really nice and original. The engine turns over with good compression so shouldn't take a lot to get it running.
The 125 Peugeot isn't so good though. It is missing a few bits and seized solid on the piston and the crank so won't be a quick job to get this one ready to flog.
Now on to the main event the 202. It looks really good on the outside under all the dust, there are a few cracks and scuffs in the paint but overall it is tidy. The underside looks really good except it has had a French repair to the o/s floor and inner sill. It looks ok and the rust has been cut out but the fibreglass is visable. I haven't made my mind up about this yet as even if it did need an mot this would be outside the prescribed areas.
It had one sticky brake due to a dodgy handbrake cable so it looks like I need to get some cables made up.
A lot of the interior has been redone and the seats look very good. It just needs a headlining and a couple of other bits.
I also need to know where these bits go as I have no idea
I had a go at getting it running but the carb is totally fucked. It looks like the main jet is held in with metal putty and it floods as soon as you connect the fuel pump up.
So I need a new carb which I have found in France then should be able to drive it to see what else needs sorting. The headlights don't quite fit correctly and I suspect they are wrong and too big as they rub against each other. I am hoping that if I put some spacers under the mounting arms I can move them just far enough apart to adjust properly.
Thats about as far as I can go for now until I get the carb.
