    Default 505 GTi

    Hi All. Long time since I've been on AussieFrogs. I've just bought a 1987 505 GTi. Any other owners of 505 GTi's on the site? Cheers.

    Hi, ScottFromNZ,
    I drove an early 504 in Dunedin when I worked there. Strong car.

    I now live in Adelaide and drive an 1985 505 GTi. The plan was to take it off the road and restore. It goes so well, I just keep driving it. Congratulations on your car, 505's are good cars.

    Nice score! I got a cam and intake manifolds for QTB's (or Weber DCOEs,but why?), you can pick them up next time you are in Greece. There have been sitting around for nearly ten years.

    I have two Series 2 86 model 505 GTI's. One is a daily driver, which needs a respray, the other awaiting a motorectomy and a bit of rust and paint work.
    Both are 5speed manuals. I love ém, the handling and performance are beautiful and they are very cumfy.
    Would be improved with aircon working which may be on the horizon.
    Congrats Scott, they are great cars.

    I have a non-GTI.......a 1985 505 SR, 3-speed slugomatic, made even more sluggish by my putting a low ratio diff in it......however this gives it lower revs on the highway.
    I just love the way 505s handle, even going slowly. A real dream to drive. I put a Fuego Weber carby on it and this gave it more power around town, which compensates for that lost with the diff..

    I have a 1985 GTI Executive (Series 1) which I have converted to 5-speed manual transmission. The motor is out of a 1985 Series 2 car with reasonably low Ks. Leather seats and sunroof, with all of the GTI Executive trim (extra sound deadening on the doors). Silver with blue seats.

    Not on the road at present, I have a problem with rust on one of the passenger doors, so it needs to be replaced, as I think it's too far gone (the rust is in the rear quarter window - the other areas had been rust proofed and are fine).

    Hi Scott
    I have an 84 model 505 STi Auto Executive in excellent condition, they are an exceptionally good, well made car that ride and handle really well, they also last a long time, I posted on Aussie Frogs not long ago about the engine rebuild I did at some 512,000 K/Lm, mainly to address a weeping head gasket, but even at that mileage the car was running well. Trust you get as much enjoyment out of yours as I do out of mine.
    Regards
    Neil

    Love the high mileage the 505s are capable of. Ours was bullet proof. Still a fantastic looking car too.

    Hi All

    i have 1984 505 Executive 2.2 Fuel injected. I have an engine oil leak which i am finding very difficult to locate. it seems to be coming from under exhaust manifold & only when engine is running. engine not useing very much oil but has a lot of back pressure when i remove the oil filer cap from rocker cover. any ideas or suggestions "other than scrap it" would be appreciated.
    cheers K

    Hi

    Quite possibly a head gasket leak as on higher mileage cars they can leak oil out at the head gasket on that side of the motor, the oil then seeps down through the exhaust manifold gasket to give the leak you described. There is not too much else on that side of the motor where it can leak, there is really only the oil filter or the oil pressure switch, both easy to check.

    Regards

    As Neil said, head gasket is the likely culprit. It might improve if you can get rid of the crankcase pressure though. Perhaps there is a lot of blow-by, but if it's not huge mileage (<300,000km say) it would more likely be a breather problem which shouldn't be too hard to sort out.

    Better to post a question like this as a new thread.

    Have fun,

    Rob.

    Hello All,

    I've got a couple of 505's. A manual GTI wagon which is my daily/Labrador transport which I love it's a brilliant thing. I've also got a very clean SRDT sedan.

    Oil leak from the ZDJ motor will most certainly be the head gasket, I've seen both low and high mileage cars with the problem and imagine that there are very few running around now that either don't have the issue or haven't had their heads done. I did my wagon last Easter and it's not really too bad of a job.

    Good to see some 505 talk on here again.

    I have not got a handle on how to use the site yet, so not sure on how to post a new thread. i will keep trying, however i hope this gets back to you both .OK. I have changed oil pressure switch and filter, as you say it looks like the headgasket, car is running great. i am looking for a second hand motor to get reonditioned, found a guy here locally who has seven 505 and eight 504's on his property only trouble is they are all timing chain model engines and the 505's are one year earlier mine, he only has one overhead cam engine, not sure he will part with it. i will try to work out how to start a new thread.

    Thanks again James

    James,

    Seems a bit extreme to replace the engine for a head gasket leak. My thinking might be a bit tainted because I've had my 505 GTI since it was pretty new. Anyhow, bear in mind that it would be wise to replace the cam belt on either engine since you don't know when it might let go. That's a fair proportion of the work of replacing a head gasket.

    On posting a new thread, 1. log in to aussiefrogs, 2. click on the Peugeot Forum, 3. Click the "+Post New Thread" button above the thread titles (below too).

    Have fun,

    Rob.

    Hi All

    i have finally got my 505 back on the road, although now it is on club rego make life a little easier. is anyone able to tell me how many clips hold the heater/air con fan in place. all the insulation has been removed and I can clearly see the top clips and the ones near the inner guard, however I am wondering how many are holding the cover underneath? are there any underneath near where it connects to the ducting taking the air into the cab. i am unable to get my hand in to feel around as there is not enough room. even on lowest speed fan is screaming, I am getting lots of looks when i am driving down the street. alternatively does anyone have cure for this issue that does not require removing the fan. someone has previously drilled a small access hole in the cover which i'm guessing was to spray something down towards the fan in the hope of fixing the issue. any help would be appreciated. Regards James
