just to be clear:

 

From Haynes:

 

Valve clearances (engine cold)

Inlet . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0.15 to 0.25 mm

Exhaust . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0.35 to 0.45 mm

 

no 2 and 3 are reading : Inlet 0.1mm and exhaust 0.3 mm

If the head was shimmed before it was torqued down onto the block it's not out of the question for them to change slightly once it is installed.

It the fact that some are in and some out Kieran that is bothering me- I just wonder if I've overtorqued the head or its warped or something

Id maybe leave then until its run a little  bit and has bedded in then check again if it was me ,exhaust will be most critical due to expansion and its very close to spec anyway .

clearances wont change any further after bolting the head down, but if they are that tight I would whip the cam out before going any further as it wont take long to sort it out.

Should I just measure the ones fitted and buy ones 0.05 mm thicker? I presume that's all you do?

measure them all and you may be able to move a few about to alter the clearances, but as they are all too tight.

Cant I just take them out and rub them down- so they are thinner?

not really, they are case hardened and need to be perfectly square, they are cheap and readily available though.

Well I remeasured all the clearances and the exhaust are all ok but the inlet are all out. ( 0.1 mm ) swapped 2 over and they are in so just 2 new shims required.

 

I then set about stripping my old engine of all the pipes etc. As expected the main  oil filler pipe is perished just below the oil filler assembly where it turns 90 degrees. 

 

One of the oil cooler pipes has some damage but I'm wondering does the 1.9 really need an oil cooler?  Does anybody run them without?

 

So the old engine is pretty much stripped. At 250K it's done well but looks a little sad. I'm going to keep it for now until the new unit has run in. Then I'm going to take it to bits and refurbish it as well.

Well today I managed to somehow get my engine into the back of my other 205 and took it to a workshop to have the broken stud removed..traumatic.

 

5 door pugs -excellent for moving engines around it turns out!

Over the next few weeks I going to fit all the sensors and the rest of the parts to the block.

 

I'm wondering if its worth buying a new set of sensors - and are there any better ones than standard that I can fit - I seem to recall some folk fit lower temperature water switches (possibly?)

 

Do most of you just order new parts from Peugeot?

 

Any advice would be great

 

Cheers
