Peugeot 309 HDi 16v
#1
Acquired this retro bus from a favour or two. Thought it might have a one way ticket but it appears to be fairly solid from a quick look.

It's a 1991 Peugeot 309 GRD, complete with electric windows, central locking, working rev counter, 78k (I think) miles and the driest XUD9 I've seen for a while. It runs very well with 60hp.

Had a bit of a stripping session with the front end as unfortunately it has a bit of front end damage but I pretty hopeful I've pulled it out good enough to have it half tidy. Also jacked it up and it requires a drivers side wheel bearing (brand new one in the boot) and a passengers side TRE. Ideally a wing too, but I'll pull this one straighter for now.

I'm thinking of continuing to tidy it up and dropping my XUD9 VNT engine in out the 206 for the hell of it, especially as I've now sourced and purchased the front panels to get the front end looking OEM again. Big thanks to Sam Barker and Trent so far.

Yes looks like Fish means business here with starting a project thread. Have to get that engine ripped out the 206 pretty sharpish if this is going to make FCS

Going to pressure wash the engine bay and then hopefully look to drop the new motor in. Had a few pointers, so going to swap few bits across from the original engine.

Got the pressure washer out and setup this evening, towed the car outside go to fire the lance at the engine bay and nothing....que spending 15 minutes repairing that.

Anyways once working we had it cleaned up.

Forgot to take a photo before but it wasn't that bad but this will make things easier/nicer to work with. Couple areas need a bit of attention with a paint can so think I've managed to find a couple aerosol cans of matching paint so will give it a blast over.

One spanner in the works, a wheel bolt has broken off in the one of the front hub's which is annoying but my neighbour is pretty sure he can sort it.

Popped over to see Jimbo and acquired a HDi box for this as well

If your neighbour can't do it, I've got a set of easy-outs that will get that out no problem, and I'm coming to Cornwall in 4 weeks.

Wow that bay has cleaned up surprisingly well considering its age.
Look forward to seeing this progress!

It is surprisingly tidy, though looks like a previous battery has been leaking so need to touch that up and on the bottom of the drivers wing on the front it has rusted out but I reckon I could plate that easily.

Had spare half hour last night so pulled the hub off to look at the broken wheel bolt

Hardly much left in there but can't be leaving it like that.

Dropped it round next door and he's going to have a look for me.

Obviously I'm going to change the brakes on the thing, suppose it would be wise to change the M/C as well. It's a 19mm on there already. Been looking at different ones and would prefer to keep the standard 4 port fitment to save hassle in T'ing and changing brake lines. So any thoughts on a bigger M/C but in 4 port design? Am I right in thinking ZXs are 4 port and would potentially bolt up?

Is your 206 not a 4 port? I had a 206 hdi which I fitted 283mm brakes on without changing the master cylinder.

Yeah if I stick some alloys on it then would have to be them.

206's are 4 port when not ABS which I do have but its only a 19mm one too. Also IIRC there is something about how the 206 one mounts (bolt holes are offset or something)
