  1. Today
  2. Those parts prices are incredibly low. Are any 404 parts left in Nigeria? Especially for the fuel injected 404s? Or C models?
  3. Also want to point out that it's commendable that you were positive during the lockdown when majority of humans in the world were negative at the time you carried out and completed your project. You spent the lockdown doing something positive that is now benefiting you, while majority were busy focusing on nothing, fearful and complaining all through because of the lockdown, rather than using the free time to engage in things they love, like what you did on your 607. It's really very inspiring. Thank you Goce. Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.
  4. This blue STX V6 HP22 autotrans was purchased in Winnipeg but has been in Calgary since 1988. Garaged through life, stored since 2008 (163, 500 Km) , but work to put back into operation 2018-2019. Fuel tank relined, serviceable fuel level gauge from Holm, Vermont, new fuel pump, rear main seal, new front struts and rear shocks (factory), auto transmission replaced at 130K, rear tires replaced michelin defenders new, new turn signal / light switch (from latvia), new rear speakers. Engine starts and runs well, synthetic oil and filter changes ~every 8K. Usual replaced parts: water pump, alternator, recored radiator. Some leakage in front crankshaft seal. AC drive belt removed, AC was working 2008. Interior is same as when new except for wear on driver's seat bolster L and crack in a plastic insert of the autotrans shifter. Several rust patches 1-2 cm size at base of windshield, and on leading edge of hood (it was a used hood after 1995 accident front end /son stepped on accelerator parked car in front. Exhaust is original. Brakes are OK, Teves Antilock works well, pads 100% F, 50% rear, bled. Master cylinder OK. Power steering OK though very slow leak in reservoir to servo line due to connection not addressed as yet. Auto door locks work, as do power windows, power sun roof (cable replaced but in the car's lifetime, sunroof opened perhaps 10 times). Corrosion on contacts cleaned up re lighting and turn signals. Looking for a new home. Hagerty insurance this past year. 200 kms since rehab. 4 factory winter rims (original snows are still on unfortunately), spare window elevator motor, switches, oil filter, rear head rests. Have spent about 3K in last 2 years to rehab. Suggest 1800$, Open to offers, but the main objective is to find this vehicle a new home. See remaining information on profile of this vehicle. My email is [email protected], cell is 4036052199. VIN listed in vehicle profile.

  6. Hmm! Your torque is interesting. Yours has more power than mine. Mine is 290 Nm for petrol v6. Yes, 607 is a very quiet car, no matter the speed. You barely hear wind noise. Ikenna351, Lion king - Monk.
  7. I've been daly driving this car for more than a month, having A/C in the summer is nice. So far its been good to me, the gearbox has its hard shifts when warm at low speed, i'm hoping another oil flush will fix it last one made a big difference, otherwise performance is great you can definitely feel the 440 Nm of torque, other then the tires at speed its eerily quiet, i've found myself many times now looking at the speedo in disbelief i'm i really going that quickly. You can see i'm not afraid to getting it dirty.
  8. That's good. I have read and heard many testimonies or positive reviews on Peugeot Diesel engines. But we don't use diesel Peugeots in Nigeria and I have zero knowledge on their systems, most especially the HDi etc. I enjoyed my 605 when I had him. I had to sell because the body and interior were in bad shapes before I bought the car (abused badly by previous users in Nigeria). So after I used the car for awhile, I lost interest in the car. I told myself that I may buy another if I see a clean one, especially with ZPJ4 Engine. But I am focused on my 505 project for now. Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.
  9. *COST OF THE PROJECT* : So, like I pointed Out earlier, started gathering parts needed for the conversion in January 2019 and concluded the conversion on 30/05/2020. Cost of some of the parts purchased are as follows: 1. ML5C Manual Gearbox:. $130 USD. 2. ES V6 Flywheel: $13 USD. 3. Manual pedal assembly (brake & clutch):. $57. 4. New OEM Clutch Master Cylinder:. $26 USD. 5. New OEM Clutch Slave Cylinder:. $31 USD. 6. New OEM Clutch Kit (Pressure plate, Friction plate & release bearing):. $117 USD, Etc. The project cost me Total of $950 USD to conclude. Unfortunately, out of the $950, about $211 was scammed out of me by some of my fellow Nigerians while sourcing for some of the parts from Nigerian part sellers that are not my trusted contacts. It was a huge loss, but I didn't let it discourage me and I kept on till I completed the project successfully. Yes, I met a lot challenges in the project and in the process acquired a lot of technical knowledge on Peugeot systems in relation to conversions. The Z9 V6 has similar mechanical and electrical systems with D2 V6 (407 V6). Meaning D2 V6 Saloon won't be a problem for me anymore or anyone in interested doing identical or similar conversion. Hope that helps anyone interested in Converting Z9 V6 or D2 V6 to Manual. Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.
  10. My 605 started life 1996 ZPJ automatic, the gearbox had been flash with the wrong oil and was really annoying made the engine feel underpowered on low rpm, so i often found my self using the kickdown and keeping it 4-6000rpm this made lots of noise and used too much fuel. At that time fuel prices wore at their highest, not wanting to change the car because it suits my needs and takes on the punishment like a champ, decided to make a hybrid. I had a series 1 605 SRDT rusting away left from my brother after he drove it till it starts to fold on it self, it had a new gearbox, clutch, suspension, the engine had close to 2 million kilometers, but i swapped it anyway and is still running, i've driven it around 450 000 km in the last 6 years. That 2,1td XUD11ate engine is one tought engine, i'm not easy on it but it takes it and keeps running. To answer your question now it has the mehanical bosch pump 2,1td inline-4. Still starts on first turn no cranking, it's noisy, i often get a lifter tick, it uses the same hydraulic lifters as later HDI engines and some of them are probably collapsed.
  11. Thanks so much. Will check it out. Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.
  12. Yes, mine is 2007 production. Also, mine has the electric rear window curtain/sunblind and Motorised trunk (electric closing trunk). Unfortunately, the Motorised trunk failed (the plastic gears in it cracked due to poor handling by someone). I have been searching for a good used one, but yet to find. My former 605 V6 had ZPJ Engine. Is yours ZPJ, ZPJ4 or inline-4? Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.
  13. Seat belts mounted High temperature paint on the brake shoes - rear linings need to be changed Whipped the brush holder out of the the SEV-Motorola alternator - dirty inside Brush holder before cleaning clean slip rings Remounting. (the bolts holding the brush holder in are 1/8 inch, which is neither nor 5.5 mm. American parts!

    Body Skirt Clips

    Dang - that looks like a decent match! I’d have split shipping with you to have some of them as well, but I guess I can order after you confirm they’re good. Keep us posted... Rabin

    Body Skirt Clips

    Ya thanks. I've searched all the usual suspects (USA, France, Canada and Germany) and the best I got (coming) is from Jorge at ZPJ in Argentina. Still not factory but most measurements are good. Maybe there's something somewhere that matches close enough but I've already gone through all that and they are not quite right. I'll report what happens.

    Body Skirt Clips

    I would strongly advise to contact Mr. Jürgen! It’s amazing what that man can come up with (NOS parts)
  18. When my AFM arrives, I will look into removing the throttlebody for cleaning. I'm surprised it hasn't gotten here yet. But if that doesn't get rid of the check engine light, I'm pretty much out of ideas. The good news is that the car continues to run very well, and is going through the proper cold start sequence, and so on and so forth. Again, still going with the old/bad fuel theory at this point…
  19. Yes, injectors will definitely be tended to one way or another. Every day I think about ordering 4 new ones, but as the car continues to run well, I may just hold off, and over the winter remove them and have them sent out for cleaning and then reinstall. Or like I said, I just might bite the bullet and buy the new Bosch ones… Thank you, I agree that the three spoke steering wheel is a must, I can't stand the wheel that came on the 91, if you can get your hands on one, definitely do it. My interior has also held up quite well over the years, the car was definitely taken care of by the owners before me… I too like the ride height, and I agree it is definitely more than 1 inch in the front, I did not measure before, but I have to imagine it's been lowered at least two inches at this point in the front. I would not want anything more than this, as I think the ride height overall is great now…
  20. Joe, how hard is it for you to pull the throttle body, if i remember right it was hold on with 4 6mm hex head screws, one throttle cable and two small coolant hoses. I'm asking because i had idling issues when i first bought my car, used a full can of throttle body cleaner when was mounted on the engine no change. Then i removed it and clean it in my sink, there are couple of small passages near the butterfly that wore entirely covered with carbon and i could not get to when mounted, i used oven cleaner to dissolve all the carbon, when i mounted it, it was like new and never had idling issues, do make it clear my car never idle like a sewing machine, it always had lumpy idle but never dies, and as you load the engine with clutch, the ecu will increase the idle to allow you to set off without throttle input on level ground.
  21. Thank you ikenna, i still drive my 605 and enjoy trouble free motoring with it, the 605 is more comfortable on bumpy roads, i also don't worry as much about hitting the big putholes with the 15" rims on the 605. I'm running 18" on the 607 and they transmit every small imperfection. When i first went to look at my 607 in the advert it said manuel gearbox, but as i discovered letter peugeot never installed a manual gearbox behind this engine. Something about the 440 Nm of torque pulling against the 2 tone vehicle with a manuel will have to make everything much much stronger. I've fix the brake pedal switch that got rid of the ABS and Esp errors, in fact i only have one code on the dash for the auto adjusting headlights but i haven't had the opportunity to put the car on a lift or on a inspection pit to check it. I don't know how much you drive weekly, on what kind of roads, but for what i'm using my cars they are perfect, wouldn't change them at all. From looking your car is a 2007 or 2008, different taillight and wheels, do you have the electric closing trunk and the electric window curtains?
  22. I managed to find the thread: http://www.coupe406.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?t=138907 Sadly most of the pictures are gone.
  23. Good to hear you're finally getting somewhere with the hesitation issues. Even if you get through your bad fuel without further problems, I would still eventually send the injectors away for cleaning to save on buying new injectors. If you can confirm you're getting real Bosch injectors for cheap then go for it- I've seen budget injectors on a flow tester and while they match flow rate, they are terrible in terms of atomization and flow pattern vs an oem. Pictures look great- I'm jealous of your 3 spoke steering wheel and shift knob. You've made me realize my leather interior has been sunburned to a dark purple color. I wish a previous owner would have tinted the windows at some point in the last 30 years. The car looks perfect at that ride height- it seems like much more of a drop than the advertised 1inch or so. Did you happen to take measurements before and after? Since our US-spec cars seem to have run a good 1-1.5" higher than European models, I tend to think lowering springs have a much bigger effect.
  24. Just to clarify. You meant the used ML6C gearbox the guy used for the 6speed V6 Conversion the 2.2i ML6C, apart from the ML5C bellhousing? The custom clutch will be a challenge for me, I think. I can easily source for used V6 ML5C bellhousing and 2.2i ML6C complete gearbox. 407 V6 Coupé have a 6-speed manual Gearbox (ML6C). Hopefully I will get one. Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.
  25. Yes, you are right. That's why I opted for the V6 ML5C gearbox and it's accessories which is not as common and easily available like the ML5T in Nigeria. So that whenever I get the V6 ML6C, the gearbox swap will be easy and cheaper, without replacing any other parts other than the gearbox. Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.
  26. Really nice. If you are using a ML5C gearbox the 6 speed swap shouldn't be too hard. I remember that a guy did the first 6 speed V6 swap when Peugeot just started using the ML5C on the V6 and the ML6C on the 2.2 petrol engine. It was on a 406 V6 with a ML5T so he ordered the ML5C V6 bellhousing, found a used ML6C, ML6C shifter and made a custom clutch disc.
  27. Went for another long drive tonight, again, drove excellent, no skips/stumbles at all...we're seemingly getting there... Also, thanks to Andre's recommendation, installed my jvc head unit with the iso pin connector that arrived this morning. Take a look at the old harness adapter from the previous owner...yes, that is trailer hitch wiring...my new one is a bit better I'll say...
  28. I will make out time to post some pictures taken during the conversion. And possibly the cost of parts used in the project.Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk
