Re: How many forum users still actually drive a 406

Good stuff Ben :D Are you still happy with your reconditioned injectors :?: Mines on 128k now & going grand but the injectors are still not right, I've done everything else so might as well sort these out too. Just can't decide whether to get mine original ones refurbed or get some newer 307 ones as...

Re: going to have a go at welding the sills !

Gas mig. Gasless is a pain in the arse as it starts much worse than gasless and you'll have to do more cleanup, TIG is a waste of time unless you cut it back to completely perfectly clean metal and get your repair seamless - and you have it indoors otherwise the wind is a nightmare. Stick welder? F...

Re: Help, trying to remove head 2.0 hdi

Hat's off to you DDD that is brilliant work! thanks for sharing I'd love to be able to do that sort of thing without making a royal hash of it :frown: Your improved gas flow should mean faster spooling and a crisp throttle response, I hope it made a difference and was worth while, have you fitted a...

Re: Help, trying to remove head 2.0 hdi

I wouldn't worry about it :wink: Just look at all them lovely pictures, that's the sort of mechanicking I used to enjoy. You don't see a lot of it these days, sadly gone are the days of buying a complete gasket set from a factors for little money, I think these days it would be cheaper to buy a com...

Re: Help, trying to remove head 2.0 hdi

Sorry for the late update but better late than never :wink: So to catch you all up, I believe now that my 150bhp re-mapped tow car blew the head gasket back in 2014 on a very steep part of the A30 coming home fully laden with the caravan in tow :roll: I had high oil temp , like triggered engine stop...

Re: need advoce maf sensor

Yes, they can be a right pig :( To be fair I did mine at the E.G.R valve when I had the head & manifold on the bench I did this by carefully grinding down one side until it split (the nuts) then with some plus gas they unscrewed easily. But of course my access was massively improved. I think you'll ...

Re: Wheel change and offset

I was under the impression you'd bought some 180gti challengers These are 32mm et, std 406 is 18mm et. So in theory you need a min of 14mm spacers but 20mm would be fine & take it out to the same et / off set as a coupe 12mm et & fill the archs better & less chance of rubbing the inner liners. I hav...

Re: 5175 E9 REAR SUSPENSION ARM

Re: going to have a go at welding the sills !

But you can't put a fire out with a gas-less mig :shock: I've had a Clarke Pro-90 amp (gas) mig for probably getting on for 30 years, it's been used for all sorts of things, not just rusty cars. I'm just about to make some stairs with it, although I'm secretly hoping it goes bang and gives me the e...
