*actual progress klaxon* 205 Jr 2.0 HDI Build

Recommended Posts

I've decided best start a new thread dedicated to my planned (beginning to come together) build.
It involves this:

This: Nope, not this.

4 of these:

Something a bit like this:

And a lot of this:

(Edit to add: through the Magic of Hollywood, that's not actually coffee as we know it. It is in fact the remains of the 4th coffee I had this morning before leaving for work.)


Stay tuned!
Hopefully there will be an accompanying YouTube series, that hopefully won't be too shit.

Good stuff!

 

Why you need 4 sofas I know not!?

I actually have 2, for a total of 5 (five) distinct places to sit, mega comfy and absolutely huge so could probably fit at least 13 people comfortably if you tried. Even better they were free!

 

Alas, I don't have 12 friends and I only have one arse.

Is that a 307? Are you going to encounter multiplexing fun?

 

Also, have you seen my thread in the modern section?

I can neither confirm nor deny. I am hopeful that having all wiring (electrically at least, not physically) follow the same routing as the donor car should avoid any issues. For the £free (not incl. P&P) the donor is costing me, I'll figure it out.

 

I have not, the only modern I have any real interest in are Dacias and I'm pretty sure they're simpler than the Clio I just scrapped.

I wish you the best of luck.

 

My 405 has a minor issue with a stuck head bolt, so there's some pictures of the 206gti engine donor in there. It's an early 206 so pre multiplexing, which should make it a little easier for scaryoldcortina.

 

I put the pictures in my thread in modernity, because most of my cars are modern

My donor is a 53 plate derv, I don't actually know enough about them to know if they're multiplexed or not. Obviously I will figure out such before I start hacking away at it!

According to the interwebs:

 

all 307 are multiplexed, this is the type that differs depending on the year of prod.

Before April 2005 it is the NPV, and after it is the CAN we call them phase 1 (VAN) and phase 2 (CAN)

(with some 307 that are in phase 1.2 and which are a mix of old 307 with CAN and new equipment 307) ...

I think that may mean that the ECU for the engine depends upon all the other ECUs being present and correct.

 

Fuck!

I know enough about how this stuff works in non-automotive applications that I can almost certainly bodge it somehow, even if it means bolting them all to the back seats or something daft like that. It is certainly a setback if true, but I'll have plenty of time to fiddle before the time comes, and if it comes to it replacing the ecu with something earlier will be cheaper than buying a complete engine (in theory). Obviously I know none of this is as simple as that, but that's the fun of it!

I like the way this is going.

I truly hope the engine cover will fit. Unfortunately I think A) the strut brace will be in the way and B) the brake master cylinder will be in the way.

Also, strut brace+engine cover = bastard of a time getting at anything!

The right way, not the wrong way like this chap

Even if that was real, I'd dislike just because the editing and music gave my phone and ears some kind of space AIDS.

 

My videos shall of course be accompanied by generic lift rock played slightly too loud to hear the important bits of what I'm saying because my head is in a wheel arch.

 

 

Also, I think either this book was aimed at people less experienced than I (a scary thought) or 1992 really was a simpler time:

I also have a hat like that, perhaps both will make an appearance in a video if spring and summer continue as this morning's snow suggests...

 

 

More "are you really telling me how to do this...?"

I really hope this is fluff to pad it out and the actual modification bit is useful or I wasted £2.50...

Those "Improve and Modify" books are really useful.

 

 

If you have a table with one leg about 20mm short.

 

Or if you are short of firelighters.

I mostly bought it as a curiosity and completeness of my collection of 205 books and whatnot. I knew it was basic, but not that basic! Full of typos too.

There's some fleet movement on the go today, no in-progress photos since all logistical plans involving DIYing it were either impractical or illegal. The one that wasn't involved borrowing a towing dolly from a friend's dad and it was vetoed because he's never used it and lending it to a couple of 20-somethings suddenly seemed like a bad idea when he realised we were serious.

 

I should have an update within a couple of hours!

Ah yes I remember the view in that last picture.

Haynes Manual - timing belt removal:

Step 1: remove the windscreen wipers...  eh?

 

Is this a 110bhp then?  Mine went ok, I would have thought the potential for a remap would make this properly fun though.

For me step 1 of the timing belt is "completely remove engine"

This is a 90 but the only material difference is it lacks an intercooler, and the std one is small and awkwardly shaped, so it doesn't bother me. Add a reasonable frontmount and a remap and it can allegedly go to 150hp-ish on the standard clutch!

Cough.

And the flywheel & clutch are up rated on the 110 (DMF on the 110, solid on the 90), and the con rods are up rated - the 90 uses the BE gearbox, the 110 uses the ML gearbox. The crank on the 90 is the old one from the 1.7 XUD and the 110 uses the crank from the XU9DTE. Someone once told me the 110 uses liners on the cylinders and the 90 doesnt but Ive never had this confirmed. Removal of the cat will free up some horses too.

 

The 90 will remap to between 120 and 130 at the flywheel but be warned spirited use can break the gearbox. Ask me how I know.

 

Looks like you have the Siemens injection system there too.

      That bit hiding up behind the air filter and infront of the turret



      made a prolonged, loud, farty vibratey noise (loud enough to be clearly audible in the cabin with the radio on) twice today, both times it did it the nose was pointing down a steep hill and we had just parked and turned off the engine.

      It goes on for best part of a minute, so managed to track it down. Initial impressions are fuck knows what it is but it's clearly been bodged in the past. The yellow hose has clearly been disconnected sometime, by someone, for some reason, somewhere.



      Thats the blighter.

      Does someone want to tell me why it's blowing raspberries at me?

      To mark the genesis of my fleet project thread I here present my new car: a 1997 Nissan Micra Shape-


      It really looks that good. There is a reason for this: its previous owner was an old lady who loved the thing so much so she made every effort to keep it in good shape. It originally came from Fleet in the GU postcode which suggests to me it was bought by the present dealer at auction, hence arriving down here in Kent. Before seeing the car I checked its MOT history and its only fails were thanks to broken stoplights, which shows me that it was very well cared for. I suppose an example of this was that on the last MOT, an advisory was a corroded rear silencer. The silencer on the car when I saw it was new. Methinks the lady wanted to keep it as good as possible. It was kept in a garage and so all the bumpers and black trim are very black and the tyres are in very good condition. Spare never used! Also included a free Dettol first aid kit from 1997.
      This car has 15000 genuine miles on the clock. We clocked over 15000 during the test drive! The lady owner really only trundled around her village in it and the MOT shows that it only did some meagre miles between tests. This, of course, came at a price. We saw a cherry red Micra from 2002 at the same dealer. Paint was shoddy and when they washed it the boot had massive sections of bare metal and it wasn't very happy. This car, however, is in fabulous condition and there was no contest between the two cars- it really is that good, inside and out. Immaculate interior, driver's airbag, cassette player... all there and all functioning (apart from cassette thanks to new battery and failed display). This meant that I bought it for £1600, £100 over what was my uppermost limit, but I knew I wouldn't see another like this that was in as good shape for a fair while. It was priced very ambitiously, at £1990, so I'm content in the fact I managed to slash a few hundred off the price. There wasn't that much paperwork though. All the dealership received was the logbook with 3 service stamps from 1998, 1999 and 2000, the radio key pass, a National Trust sticker, and the original paperwork holder. I suspect the old lady died and had her car auctioned, and the massive file of paperwork is now someone's egg carton, along will everything else she owned.

      As always, this car isn't exactly in showroom condition. While the inside is great and the floor is solid, and the underseal is in great shape, the not undersealed parts need a small looking at. Mainly the rear of the driver's side sill. It's really the only bubbling on the car. I suspect a well aimed stonechip managed to fester over the wintery salted roads, making it rust even more. It's around the size of a 5p piece, and will give me the opportunity to spray the insides of the sill with some chain oil to prevent any further corrosion. Behind the fuel tank there are a few rusty joints- places where the spraygun cannot get paint onto- which some Vactan and Dynax should put to rights. Alternator belt looks original because of the cracking and Nissan badges and will need doing soon as well as the front plate. As much as I like the 90's font and original dealer surround, the dishevelled R and general water ingress is a persistant MOT advisory. It could be the MOT station being strict (and most likely is considering there's a Saxo down the road with far worse blackening), however for the sake of peace of mind and all that, I'll get a new one made. The rear has already been replaced indicating this has happened before.
      All in all, I think this is a nice plucky motor. I'll have it by the end of the week; just got to sort out tax, insurance, and it's going to have an MOT. As part of the deal it's getting the MOT and an oil and filter change which will be something ticked off the list. It has some love scratches and chips here and there, but it drives well, is stiff and controllable, and should make out to be a nice summer project!

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
       
      MEH.

      With the recent addition of the 420 to the fleet it's high time I started a project thread devoted to all four Rovers.
       
      I've done some half-hearted attempts in the past, then done a few updates on the News 24 as and when I remembered.
       
      Today will be an intro to the fleet only with a little potted history about things wot I've done, and then I'll aim to be more blog-like in my approach to my skillful* fettling.
       
      So without further ado, welcome to the fleet.
       
      2004 Streetwise S - purchased May 2017
       

       
      It was a toss up between this and a top spec K11 Micra, but this won the day. This car marked my return behind the wheel after almost 18 years and thus was a monumental step forward for me.
       
      I'd given up driving mainly because public transport is so good in Nottingham but when my parents relocated to Newmarket from St Albans, the train journey to Suffolk was ridiculously long-winded and incorporated 55 minute waits at Cambridge to catch the connecting train to Newmarket, so enough was enough.
       
      Purchased from a shady man in East Leake ('which car ?' when I rang up) who was dealing from his front garden, this Streetwise stole my heart from day one. Annoyingly I missed out on getting it for £250 when this guy bought it and flipped it, and span a tale of a part exchange in Manchester where his old car lot had been. I wanted to call bullshit, but the price was right, £420 exchanged hands, and this came home with me.
       
      There were some issues, notably no horn nor rear fog lights (fucked Pektron BCU) but that aside, this car has wanted nothing other than consumables (tyres, exhaust, brake pads) and has never FTP (apart from user error - leaving the boot open and the dashcam on drained the battery on two occasions). The willing puppy and commutawagon, until recently this has always been my goto car, which I can always rely upon.
       
      It will continue to serve as commutawagon, not least due to its petiteness which ensures parking is easy, and its miserly fuel sipping.
