  1. I found another goodie left over from my 505, a new, square drive drain plug tool, used for removal of differential and transmission drain plugs. May also fit some oil pan drain plugs. Peugeot part #7.1402, cast into the side of the tool. Came in a Peugeot factory bag too! (sorry, bag not included) Tool only used once, the small end. The large end was never used. Tool is in as new condition. No rounded corners, no flaking chrome, not bent beyond its OEM shape. Its new. $10 plus shipping. email bryancohnracing "at" yahoo.com or 316 251 51ZERO9
  2. Sorry for the slow response, they sold to Eduardo in Columbia a day or so after posting and I forgot to post that fact. Roger they were used.
  3. I found 2 good rear shocks from an '87 505 Turbo when I moved my shop recently. I've sold my 505 I don't have a need for spares, so they need to go. They have the plastic shaft sleeve, bushings, all hardware needed to install them tomorrow. As they never fail, these are perfect for someone wanting to upgrade their standard 505 to 505 Turbo rear shocks. $30 for the pair plus shipping I'll ship worldwide. Contact Bryan at bryancohnracing "at" yahoo.com or 316 251 5109
  4. Is the car still there? I know people in Memphis that can help, might even be able to obtain the whole car if they'll sell to another yard.
  5. Reluctantly I must sell my 505. Life is getting in the way, finances and time just aren't going to work out in the long term/big picture. Someone needs to take the car on and enjoy it as it should be! 1986 Peugeot 505 Turbo set up for NASA Time Trials/track days and fast road use. Ex-August Macbeth, creator of www.505turbo.com Build documented on the old www.505turbo.com website. Build photos: https://picasaweb.go...094/April252012 (not the complete set, just some at random) Photos from on track at Gateway April 14-15, 2012: http://john4kc.smugm...25468&k=KKfSgsL The car needs a AEM Fi/C piggy back system in order to be tuned to its maximum performance capabilities. These run about $400 from AEM and its a great piece of kit, highly tunable and perfect for the car and its needs. I purchased the car from August in February 2011. The car sat for most of 2011 while we focused on racing our Mazda Miata and buying a new house. Serious prep work for the track started in September of 2011. The car is rust free in exceptional shape overall, mint dash and carpet in dark blue, black over factory silver paint (its a track paint job, came that way), no rear seat. Sunroof could be made to work, windows work except LR, blower motor works at all speeds, heat works great, no A/C. It’s a great 505 outfitted for serious track and street use. I have the title and the car can be titled/licensed in Kansas where I live. I am willing to title the car in KS if it helps the new owner.

  6. In regard to Coolant Expansion Tanks, my solution can be found here: http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/2114-winter-maintenanceservicetrack-preparation/page-2#entry15339 Also, I made a T-Stat housing bleed valve that works GREAT! See Post #36 on the same page. The expansion tank is a $40 Speedway Motors part, found here: http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Speedway-Coolant-Expansion-Tank,1840.html I'm sure you can find these worldwide. The T-Stat bleed is a steel tire valve. I've used them to make bleeds in other radiators and all have lasted without fail, leaks, etc. They will stand up to the heat as wheels get hotter than coolant due to tire friction and brake temperatures. As air is a fluid like water and a tire valve will hold air pressures high air pressures (say at least 75 psi or more) and cooling systems only run in the 15-25 psi range its no issue. I use a high pressure cap, 22-24 psi. See the entire build thread for all kinds of fun stuff! Good luck!
  7. I had no idea the Outlander was a Peugeot/Citroen in Gisha wear. None. Zip. Zilch. However, it does explain why, when looking to replace my Ford Escape we kept going back to the Outlander. Damn thing was hard to resist, drove one twice, looked at them at least 4 times. Splitting Ram made good sense actually. Their trucks have a good reputation and by making it a stand alone brand its more versatile and can more easily be jettisoned if needed.....Can't explain the Caravan side of things. With Fiat owning Chrysler, if it went in all went in the tank they could still keep Ram and Jeep and Caravan brands alongside Fiat and make a go of it. Or sell them off as they have market value. Jeep made by Tata anyone???
  8. Kansas motor vehicle laws allow any plate from the year the car was built to be assigned to a car. So, I could obtain a 1986 KS plate and use it on my 505. However...... Its a cool law in that there is a market for old plates in good condition plus it allows one to buy an old car and obtain a period correct plate for it, register and assign the plate to the car. I have a friend who owns a '64 Elva Courier and he was able to get a '64 KS plate and it looks damn good on the car. From 1956 through 1976 KS plate were embossed in the shape of the state. Not too hard when your state is a giant rectangle with a squiggly bit in the NE corner, but cool none the less. Sadly the '77 through early 90's plate is an ugly white thing with wheat in the center and horrid lettering across the top. Lucky for me the car is 27 years old and I can get antique plates! Nothing fancy, just plain white with "Antique" across the bottom and 5 digits/letters that can be customized.

  10. Pre load does not effect the rate of the spring, only the initial force it takes to move said spring. So, if you want more stiffness you need more spring. FYI Koni Yellows: I run 750/350 Fr/Rr on my Miata with Koni Yellows. There is no spring rate limit as such, never heard of such a thing on any car I've ever worked on. Rabin where did you get that info? As for bump stops, there are different types and styles. I use what is commonly called a "Packer" in place of a rubber piece 2 inches tall. Why? I want every spec of travel I can get without bottoming out the shock. Packers are hard plastic, 2-3 mm thick. Stack a couple if needed. They flex to go around the shaft, no need to remove the shock/strut. I'm getting ready to start coil over conversion on my spare struts and am looking hard at 250 front springs as a starting point
  11. Rehab is going well, virtually no pain throughout. I was driving the Baja, if it had been the Volvo I'd have never thought of tossing a mower in the back! One more week and then I get to start actual muscle work. Goal is to be able to race by the end of March. Am I lame for thinking I might install power steering in the Miata or a giant 20 inch steering wheel in the 505???
  12. Rob, parts are available from several places: Peugeot Holm in NH Javal Garage Courtier in Dallas Parts Network in Houston (I think) See the Vendors section of this very website: http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/forum/22-vendors/ Also check out Western Hemispheres in Cali There is also a nationwide mechanics list found here: http://myplace.frontier.com/~peugeot/mechanics Please also sign up with the Peugeot Yahoogroup, lots of great help to be found there! Good luck!
  13. A friend and I looked hard and long at taking one of my old parts car 505's and building it into a LeMons/Chump Car racer with a small block Chevy, T5 5 spd and diff from a Vette with custom axles. The holes are big enough to fit those parts, they don't cost much on the used/junk yard market. Biggest cost was custom axles. My friend can weld and between us we have enough scrap steel and ally to build s small ship. In the end we lost interest due to other interests. Does that even make sense?
  14. I had to have my Paris-Rhone checked out by a proper electric starter/alternator/motor rebuild shop here in Wichita as the O'Reily's near my house didn't have the right connectors to test it. Turned out to be a good move on my part! I highly recommend a proper shop vs/ the hacks at most of the Quick Shop parts houses..they could be selling Slurpees just as well as Chevy alternators.
