205CTI 1.6 1990 in New Zealand

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have recently had my old 1990 engine (184,000 km run) replaced by a low mileage engine of only 80,000km/50,000 miles) but it was swapped by a non Peugeot service garage who did not know how to refit the plastic support piece that sits on top of cam cover to retain the HT leads in position & keep em tidy. The dizzy cap cables exit facing the firewall as returned to me yet I think the plastic lead retainer piece probably is attached to the front edge of cam cover.

 Would someone take a photo of the plastic leads retainer to show clearly its mounting & position of retaining bolts, as I took no photo of engine top before sending car for engine replacement. Car has off road for 2 years, engine was nackered & car was rusty in floor, I am doing a major restoration. It is the 5th 205 GTi/CTI that I have owned and I am 79 years young. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

The smaller hole goes on a double stud in the centre of the cam cover. After that it should be obvious where it fits. Although if you offer it up I think you will figure it out.

Thanks very much for that photo Tim, I have fitted the part as indicated. I was given this car for free, it was a real "basket case", had not been run for over 2 years & always kept outside not garaged, never good for a convertible, so quite rusty. Making good progress now. I like sporting Pugs, had a 405 Mi16 Targa NZ tarmac rally car back in the naughties, still have a Citroen C4 VTS as my daily driver. an '02 406 Coupe V6 5 speed and a '70 404 Saloon repowered with a 504 2 litre engine. I was president of Peugeot car club in Auckland, N.Z. in the 90s & a committee member for about 30 years.

Ah that’s good Don. You certainly have had a sporting pug background, good to see another one being restored. Where better than NZ to enjoy it!

Hi again from New Zealand, I have reconnected the air  cleaner box, and rubber ducting to the inlet manifold, refitted battery and restarted the engine but car won't idle, it surges between 750-1500 rpm and when warm is still very jerky at constant rpm on the road. My ducting section from air box to air flow meter has split but I have taped it over with race tape but I suspect it may be leaking air into duct. My local garage has already played with the idle & possibly the mixture. What is the most likely cause, what is the remedy(ies)? Will I need to take it to a garage with an exhaust analyser as I suspect the fuel/air mixture is upset.  Thanks in advance for any help
