L1's pug shenanigans - another new lion


Recommended Posts

  • loserone changed the title to L1's pug shenanigans - another new lion

Loving the Pug content. Got my own Pug fairly sorted and I am becoming quite enamoured with it.

Like the seat change, its something I'm considering. I've always liked the fluted leather of big Peugeots. It reminds me of the seats in my KV6 Sterling. Its definately on the list but maybe at a later date.

I am amazed at how long you've stuck out that 407.   I couldn't love one, even if you're managing to make yours look unreasonably handsome.

It's a bit grim, but should recover.  Now, what to sell?

Yeah, so, about that.

 

Turns out it's a bit* more than an injector seal wrong with this.  Also, the sump is full of plastic.

 

And when the leaky injector was removed, there was plastic there too.  Also a number of stripped injector studs.  With these duly resolved and a ten hour drive planned to pick up a 400KG stove, it was still running rough.

 

And the turbo started leaking.

 

And an oil leak.

 

And the tyres are the wrong size, it's scruffy as hell, smells, the ABS is broken, etc. etc. etc.

 

It's being broken now, the axle will save @Jimbob McGregor's nearly identical one.  Need anything, @thebrotherschuckle?

Possibly, Power steering issues and clunking over every road imperfection, however no idea what the issues are so will investigate. All expected at this price, sorry to hear about the pug, has a lot more character than mine!
