Hi all. Well after the loss of one of our other 205's to fire (see this thread: http://forum.205gtidrivers.com/index.php?showtopic=151866&do=findComment&comment=1365892) a work mate told me he had a little something hidden in his field. So after a short trip just outside Yeovil we came across this little beauty: 1987 1.8D GRD All Phase 1 including a full BLUE interior (VERY blue!) Been sat 2 years in the mud! Put a new battery in it and it fired straight up! So I drove it to the MOT station and it failed on one blocked washer jet and s small fuel leak!!! The fuel leak is from the Lucas mech pump. Wasn't doing it in the field so something must have gone on the way to the MOT station. Looks like its coming from the pulley end of the pump. Has anyone got any ideas? Plan is to make this a nice daily driver and workhorse. Its in really good condition for its age so I'm going to give it a bit of loving to keep it going. More pics to come!
