    Peugeot 604

    All,

    Do we have any resident 604 experts ? I am looking at buying a 604(without an engine) but know the location of a fully re-built 604 motor

    So I am going to be asking a few questions in the coming months ! so beware

    Cheers....Ben

    Ben,

    I know a little bit, as I bought one recently and stripped it for parts, but for more detailed knowledge, I might be able to ask some of my more expert friends from the Pug club, if you like.

    I have one on the road, plus a complete car for spares. I recently installed a new LPG converted engine - so can advise on engine changes. I'm also an expert at pulling the dash in and out

    You'll love the car and I am glad to help with advice etc.

    Cheers,

    I have ideas on LPG conversions that I think would be superior... and the impression I get is that the V6 runs better on gas too.

    I am very happy with the LPG engine. It idles a lot smoother, seems to pull more evenly across the rev range, and I don't have to mess with those Solex carbies and choke system any more

    Above all is the economy - went from around $15/100Km to $10/100Km. Local price for LPG is 57 cents per litre, but I noticed in Adelaide recently it was down to 38cents! Why LPG varies so much across the country is another one of life's mysteries I'm afraid.

    Yes, the electric fuel pump is a major necessity to prevent boiling the engine...

    Ya gotta know your 604s!

    Get the electric fuel pump in before you get the engine, will save you a lot of grief... various parts retailers have them for about $70... no fires and no overheating then...
