So yesterday went fairly well

started by removing most of the front of the car

no major rust on the front end which I'm very happy about

I have already removed the rest of the Aircon pipe work so don't worry they aren't staying cut off like they are in the photo here.

Both the condenser and the rad had seen better days so they are both heading for the bin

I then turned my interest over to re sealing the cam carriers as I've had a small but annoying oil leak from there

once that was all back together I started on getting the new front suspension fitted

Old

New

the old ones had started leaking and we also found that there was next to no rebound left in them so that would explain the terrible feeling at the front end.


so plans for tomorrow are

Second cam carrier re-seal and put engine back together
new Cam Belt on
Rallye Aux set up fitted
fit the new HiSpec callipers
install the new rad
install oil cooler

I hope so! The car has been crap for a while which I’m not surprised at now due to looking at those shocks

Made more progress last night as managed to get the lower strut brace fitted, fitted the oil cooler however I need to now make some modifications to the bumper grill to make it fit comfortably.
Stripped the rear beam out of the car completely ready for the nfresh refereed one I’m collecting tomorrow.
Ran into a slight issue with the Cam Belt as the car had a 136 tooth kit fitted and Peugeot supplied me a 137 tooth kit so just need a few extra bolts and bits to fit that all up and finish everything

I'd call that a bit bo***cks but anyway GSF do Dayco kits at similar prices.

I wouldn't put a 137 kit inplace of 136.

It's also worth noting the Dayco kits supplied through aftermarket channels such as Euros and GSF are not the same as an OEM Peugeot kit.

The belt is a different compound (OEM kit uses HSN- high temperature compound).

The tensioner is also subtly different and not of the same quality.

The idlers are the same.

I won't fit anything but Peugeot sourced kits.
