  1. 28.3mm is what I measured. Sorry for the delay - If I don’t respond it’s because I haven’t seen the post! Rabin
  2. Do you still get the flashes? Did you ever check the wiring to the NTC sensor? And have you tested and verified your ground wires? I redid the ground wires, as well as a new NTC sensor as well. The later cars used a pricier NTC sensor that was blue, and it cross referenced to the same one used by Volvo. Rabin
  3. BTW - Your Speedo cable is fraying badly most likely at the transmission which is causing the speedo to bounce. This is a long shot, but try unplugging the sensor on your speedo cable. Or disconnect the speedo cable at the transmission. I wonder if the variable assist is causing the locking somehow? Rabin
  4. I’m curious if the power steering line possibly collapsed inside? Something that would prevent fluid flow - but then again the pump would be screaming if it was blocked. Only thing you can do is to isolate the systems until you narrow it down, but it’s definitely a head scratcher if it works fine with no fluid in the system. Rabin
  5. BTW - Can you provide a link to the video? I’m curious to see it. Reading your post again it can’t be the variable assist system.... Rabn
  6. Is it locking rigidly like a metallic solid lock, or are you losing assist and it’s just very hard? Your car should have variable power assist which varies the assist based on speed, and if your controller acts up then it could be like losing the assist. If that’s the case unplugging the controller should return the assist, it just won’t be variable with speed anymore. Rabin
  7. Plugs would be white if it was running lean, tan is perfect, black is usually rich or burning excessive oil. Plugs can also foul with it running so rich, so new plugs might solve a lot of the running issues. BTW - How’d the injectors finally come out? Rabin
  8. That’s cool Sean! I can’t help at all sadly, but I’m curious why this would come up now and for what audience? It’s very cool - I’m just curious why now. Rabin
  9. Hi Tommy, Welcome to the forum and sorry for the delayed reply! (I didn’t see it till just now!) Coolant level can sometimes be the level sensor in the radiator itself acting up, but hopefully all is good so far. Only other comment I can make is that the t-stat itself is an important part in keeping a steady temp. I upgraded my N9TE to an OEM Nissan thermostat and was amazed at how much more stable it kept temps. Pictures and an update would be great if you find the time! Rabin
  10. Back in olden times ;) - decks like that used the volume and tuner buttons to hold the stereo to the face plate. It looks like the console cover is that plate so you might want to pull the knobs off to see if the nuts on the shaft hold it. I also seem to remember that there’s a nut on the back side that supports the back of the stereo. Might want to see if you can take a peak behind for something like that. Pure guesses as it’s been MANY years since messing with a series 1 dash. Rabin
  11. Is the lock happening in the steering column or is it a mechanical lock in the rack itself? Very disconcerting to say the least, but I’m at a loss as to what it could be. Might be a defective rack? Rabin
  12. New seal as well? And I assume the plastic locking strip shattered? Now that would be nice to find a replacement. I was going to see if I could get my installer to use generic seal to flush mount the glass in. Buddy had it done on his Europa and it turned out nice. Rabin
  13. Sweet! I had no idea that was possible... Pics or it didn’t happen as they say! Rabin
  14. Hi Joe, Cometic makes head gaskets for these engines, and there’s a French shop that sourced new gasket sets, bearings, hoses etc etc - So it’s very doable. https://www.mespiecesauto.com/en/categorie-produit/peugeot-505-turbo-injection/ As for costs, doing everything at once is likely not very feasible, but a stepped or staged approach makes the most sense. Fixing the engine, and getting it back to stage 0 (as they say) would be my advice. (Stage 0 is basically mechanically perfect) You may find that once it’s returned to stock that it needs very little more, or you can at l
  15. Thanks for the update Wales! Is the paint a plain black? Looks great... Rabin
