    Default 405 SRDT to good to wreck

    This red SRDT just came in.

    Another one thats probably shouldn't be wrecked but it will be.

    It has a straight rust free body, good clean interior, its done 315,000km and its still a nice tight car to drive. Problem is that it has a leaking injector pump.
    It was being roadworthied and has had lots of money spent on it, look into the engine bay and you can see the nice shinny new starter motor.

    I'm a little peeved about getting this car because the white car we got last week has a good pump and very good engine.
    The red car was being done up to go back on the road and the owner asked us to hold the pump for him and he'll be down to get it this week. Now he's changed his mind, not only do we loose a sale but end up with another car we have to wreck out.

    Anyone, maybe someone would like to make 1 out of 2

    Yeah I replaced the seals in the top of the XM pump that's a bosch. From memory it's a "universal" type kit, so you only use the seals for your exact pump and chuck the rest. The diesel place here had the seal kits in stock for mechanical boschs . I only lifted the top from the pump and replaced the seals/Orings in that part (it was leaking from the seal between the top and the body of the pump). I can't see why the rest wouldn't come apart easily for seal replacement. so long as it goes back together in the same order, I see no reason to test bench the pump if it was working correctly when pulled down.

    Hmm a few people have asked about these.

    I'm offering them for sale at $1000 each but be quick because the bosch injector pump of the white car will sell quickly.

    The white one has an excellent engine, plenty of power and runs really quiet and smooth, so does the red one but it leaks fuel.

    So, a couple of grand and a weekends work would produce a nice SRDT.

    I have recently aquired one of these with 350000 km on it and it is really the nicest little car,super quiet and really supple suspension with great seats. A real pleasure to drive and ridiculously cheap to buy. I really dont think that there has been much progress with cars since the nineties. Only heaps of complications and future expenses.

    How true. I've been saying that for years. In my opinion the last good Pug was the D8 406

    I'm driving the white car at the moment and yes its very cheap to run and a very nice cruiser,

    405s are a brilliant car, a shame that they will mostly be gone soon, same goes for the 205 Si, which at least I have stockpiled!

    I do love my Mi16....when it's working!
    I think a SRDT would be a fantastic daily...less maintenance issues than an Mi and less highly strung.
    Pugs Rule!
