*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.

      Place holder for some fun tomorrow.
      A free car ...but as we all know, that's a very untrue statement! This one has been sat for about a year and half or two. It was last MOT'd in 2017 but has been passing over the last few times with no advisories. 
      Two stages to this collection. First is getting the bugger running and the second is getting it home & MOT'd. 
      Tomorrow will be about hopefully getting it started and out of the garage. If this succeeds I'll then see about having it recovered back to either home or directly to my friendly local garage and have it tested. 
      Not sure how I'll do this - maybe do a single shot video of startup?

      Hi all, new to the forum.  Thought you might be interested in what I've got myself into
      I'd been after my first classic car for a while.  If it's big and made in the 70s I'm interested.  Looked at few things like P6s, Zodiacs, Victors, SD1s and various other things.  Problem was I didn't want to spend a boatload of money on something that looked alright but underneath was actually a total heap.  The solution was to buy a complete heap in the first place and spend the money fixing it.
      So in January I went ahead and bought this from a colleague at work who was moving away and needed to get shot of it.

      It's a part finished restoration (I prefer not started) and it needs a whole load of help if it's going to stand any chance of using a road again.
      Pros
      It's right up my street.  Granada Coupes are quite odd and certainly stand out from the norm.
      It still has the original engine, box, interior and most trim.
      It came with loads of panels I need to repair it (mostly original Ford stock).
      It came with so many spares I could probably build a few Granadas and still have stuff left over.
      It was cheap.
      Cons
      Most of the front end has been cut off.
      Most of the body structure is quite rotten.
      It's going to take me ages.
      I work at a restoration company and my boss kindly allows me to keep the car there.  So I've got access to all the gear I need to restore it.  I've been busy on the car for a while now so will post more pics over the coming days.
      Cheers

      Oooops I did it again......was a song produced two years after this automobile. I told myself ages ago that I’d thin the fleet down and cut down spending ...... it didn’t last long. If this new purchase is a worthy keeper then I may part with the 50 quid omega. But let’s not be hasty yet!
       
      transport steed of choice is my 05 discovery and a trailer, no pics yet as it’s still pitch black outside. 
      Poo count = 1
      Blood sugar level = 11.2
      distance to go = 88 miles
      setting off at 7, keep posted for updates.

      Well I've been meaning to sign up here in forever, but kept forgetting. Thanks to someone over on another forum I frequent poking me about it recently the subject was forced back into my very brief attention span for long enough to get me to act on the instruction.

      I figure that my little varied fleet might bring you lot some amusement...

      So...we've got:

      1993 Lada Riva 1.5E Estate (now fuel injected, as I reckon the later cars should have been from the factory...).
      1989 Saab 900i Automatic.
      1987 Skoda 120LX 21st Anniversary Special Edition.
      1985 Sinclair C5.
      2009 Peugeot 107 Verve.

      Now getting the photos together has taken me far longer than I'd expected...so you're gonna get a couple of photos of each car for now, and I'll come back with some more information tomorrow when I've got a bit more time...

      Firstly...The Lada. Before anyone asks - in response to the single question I get asked about this car: No, it is not for sale. Took me 13 years and my father's inheritance to find the thing.


      Yes, it's got the usual rusty wings...Hoping that will be resolved in the next couple of months.

       






      Next, a proper old Saab. One of the very last 8 valve cars apparently, and all the better for it. I've driven two 16v autos and they were horrible - the auto box works sooooo much better with the torque curve of the 8 valve engine. Just wish it had an overdrive for motorway cruising...









      Next up a *real* Skoda...back when they put the engine where it belongs, right out the back. In the best possible colour of course...eye-searingly bright orange.







      Seat covers have been added since that photo was taken as it suffers from the usual rotting seat cloth problem that affects virtually all Estelles.

      Then we have possibly the world's scruffiest Sinclair C5...



      Realised when looking for this that I really need to get some more photos of the thing...I use it often enough after all! We have a dog who's half husky, so this is a really good way of getting him some exercise.

      Finally - again, I really need to take more photos of - we have the little Pug 107.



      Included for the sake of variety even if it's a bit mainstream! First (and probably to be the only) new car I've bought, and has been a cracking little motor and has asked for very little in return for putting up with nearly three years of Oxford-Milton Keynes commuter traffic, before finally escaping that fate when my housemate moved to a new job. Now it doesn't do many miles and is my default car for "when I've managed to break everything else."

      I'll fill in some more details tomorrow - I warn you though that I do tend to ramble...
