    Cheers cortinadave. This is the very last of the well built Audi's in my opinion. I love the 80 shape. If was in and had won I would probably have been more likely to go through with a divorce than a cartakeback scrapper!!!

    You're right. It has got a bit hot. I'm going to strip it down and service the gearbox/hammer side of things; if that's all OK, I'll give it a new trigger.

    Cheers everyone    I'm glad that the project has gone down well! I know diesel is the choice for vans around here 
     
    Haha I'd love to say it was as simple as that, theres been a fair amount of head scratching!
     
    It was definitely well used! It was only a couple hundred miles of 235k, which might have had something to do with it lol. It has gone to someone who is going to put it back in a montego though. Turbo diesel lump is a good choice, especially for a work van, that must have been at least nippy back then with the torque    Fortunately Honda did good and made a stationary shaft bolted to the block, so the driveshafts are equal length, I'm yet to dive it to give a proper review 
     
     
    Ahh yep, I know the thread, thats Alex's van! He has done a damn good job at making one of these look cool. Appreciate the offer too, I will take you up on that, always good to meet local enthusiasts, I'll keep an eye out for your 505 as well

    My car History buys 2009
     




    1974 Peugeot 504 Cabriolet. A friend’s car for many years, he had it restored it, but now shitting in a shed in Banbury and my friend was in Scotland so I asked to buy it. After 18 months of maybe I was visiting him in Edinburgh and he gave me the keys saying I don’t know what state it is in because it is now outside and I am never going to do anything with it! Well that was almost 10 years ago and I have had some new metal let into the rear deck and another respray, I have had the Kugelfischer fuel injection cleaned and the engine started. I then put it in a trim shop for a new hood, carpets and some leather sections to be let into the seats, well that was 4 years ago and they still have the car inside their workshop!
     



    1975 BMW 2500 E3 Auto. I have always loved the E3s since they were new and I was a child, a friend had one and we got drunk one night in a pub and I bought it from him. Trouble was neither of us could remember the deal struck and we had to ask our designated driver what we had done!
     



    2008 Fiat 500 Sport diesel. As soon as the first pictures of the new retro styled 500 appeared I loved it and wanted one so put a deposit down. In due coarse I was asked to choose a final spec from their list, black, red leather and chrome trim and given a price. A little later I was told I would have to have a Lounge to achieve my spec and pay an extra £300 to achieve it. I said you can build it anyway you like but not at extra cost so they said I could not have it. I looked at a 500 Abarth and was disappointed with the performance so was ready to give up when a black diesel Sport ex demonstrator came up for sale at a considerable saving so I bought it. The plan was the 67 mpg car would become my daily driver, but due to a horrible ride on the lovely 17 inch wheels, 46 mpg and a big gap in the power delivery I always found excesses to drive something else. After 14 months and just 2,000 miles Mrs6C asked if I ever intended to drive the drive ornament!
     





    1983 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0. This car has been owned by several friends and when the last one had to move he offered it to us and I turned it down so he turned to Mrs6C and offered it for a £1 and I refused to cough up so in spite of not carrying money she managed to conjure up a £1 coin! Needs lots of work but not rotten.
     




    1986 Citroen Visa 17RD. As soon as I started running the Visa 10E I knew I wanted another diesel as I found hills I had never noticed before so I asked the Citroen Visa Headmaster to find me one. After a year had a call to fetch a free two owner Visa from Bristol, I looked terrible so I started home thinking I wondering how far it would get. Actually it drove quite well so I began thinking what will it need for its next MOT. It is structurally sound and just needed odds and ends for the MOT but it has taken quite a bit of work to tidy its appearance. It is used for trips to Europe and cruises all day at top motorway speeds doing 50+ mpg.
     



    1985 Audi Coupe 2.0i 5 cyl Auto. From the same source as the Alfasud Sprint and beautiful again. It only needed a water pump, service and set of tyres to put it back on the road, but somehow for me the Auto gearbox did not suit it. I sold it for export to Hong Kong and had to deliver it to a shipping agent at the docks.
     
     



    1972 Citroen DS Super. We attended the Citroen DS rally without a D and longed for another one so considered the two cars that were on sale at the event, the first was better than new, but at £70,000 was a non starter. The second was a tidy running car at a fraction of the price and we decided to go for it. I said to the owner I would collect it the following week from the south coast, but he said he wanted us to take possession of the car that day and give him a lift to the station in the evening. I said I could not pay until next week and he said I am sure you will pay me when you are able. The seller was an older gentleman giving up his beloved DS because he could no longer maintain it and a sad day. A year or more later we received a large brown envelope in the post with the note having a clear out thought you might like this, it was only the complete history of the car including its original service book.
     




    1998 Alfa 156 TS 2.0 manual. A discovery, not only do 156s look great, they drive great as well. One of my random purchases that stuck around for 15 months before a friend wanted it.
     




    1994 Citroen ZX 1.9D 5 door. Though the Citroen club there was a call to buy this ZX as the factory sunroof had parted company and blown away at 50 mph and frightened the lady so it had to go. Purchased for less than the price of the tax on the screen a neat playwood repaire put the car back in use first by me then my neighbour and ended up with a 16 year old learning about cars.
     



    1993 Citroen ZX 1.9D Auto. Purchased for Mrs6C’s mother and after a time proving it was good it went to Wales. I sold these new and realised it would be a very slow car but this one was ok and the fastest 1.9D auto I have ever driven.

    From the pics it looks like the exhaust has a slight angle. Not sure if this is sufficient to keep out Scottish rain!
    As per Phil A's post could the ball bearings rattling around the timing case like a bingo machine have caused the timing to jump hence the rocker damage?
    Other damage due to diesel in oil/bore wash?
    I would be wary of unknown engines unless very cheap as they could have their own issues. Use of the JCB seems like a sensible option but that's not very Autoshite/fun*
    Great thread, very interesting. Good luck with the rest of your building work.
