Re: Fuel Door Flap.

Re: Fuel Door Flap.

Hi, maybe helps this picture from my 2400 Coupe. As the door had no lock some placed a lock later into it to prevent petrol being stolen. Looks as such a thing in your case. KR Thomas

Re: Fuel Tank Sending Unit

Absolutely right. There is a ground wire attached to one of the small bolts of the fuel tank sending unit. By the way: 2.4 Liter has a fuel return line from the carbs and is therefore different than the (at least early) 2.0 Liter versions.

Re: Front turn signal lens 1967 Dino coupe

Beneath the topic of the right gasket: the lenses are in clear and orange available, as the housings and the wiring is different. Original Italian cars had white lenses and the parking lights were included in the indicator. Therefore the bulb holder has contacts for bulbs with two functions (5 watts...

Re: Torque tightening specifications 1967 coupe 206

You should get the original documentation with all the technical specs.
Be aware: there is a wrong torque specification in the technical specs: torque for the cam Schaft bearing covers is NOT 3,3!
I torque them as normal M6 with 10-11.

Re: Door check strap

Hi,
I have once tried Alfa ones. They fit Or can be made fit with a bit grinding but are a bit too short - what means the door cannot be opened completely... so not useable from my experience.

Re: Fuel filter bowl

The Lage screw regulates the fuel pressure! Look at the bottom there should be a screw at the bottom to fix it tighter. You schould also look if the seal is Ok ( you see it when you open the bowl (what you should do from time to time to clean it and replace the filter).

Re: How do I know if engine mounts need replacing?

Hi, I would not try to make a science out of it:
- if rubber and metal start to split
- if the rubber has cracks
- if the rubber is at the sides not flat
=> you should replace them.

Especially as they cost less than 100 Euro/pair.

Re: Cam sprocket pins

Absolutely right! The threaded center is there to remove and mount them. A long Screw or better a Slidehammer works, not very much force needed. Make sure nothing falls into the engine! Tighten chain tensioner before to avoid it falls into the engine. I always put pressure on the chain, then tighten...

Re: 2400 rear brake calliper tutorial

Hi Richard, Some Peugeot 504/604 have very similar rear Brakes with nearly similar mechanisms but 1-2mm longer piston. Maybe in your Brakes someone has used these parts. The little top at the rear side of the brake pads help to have the piston in the right position so the handbrake mechanism is Work...
