    Default Peugeot 504 Break engine swap PRV

    Hello,

    I am new on this forum alltough I have been reading quite some posts.
    Happy owner of a 504 V6TI coupé from 78 and a 604 GTI from 85. Moreover I just managed to come over a 505V6 aut. and a 504 Break GL aut from 1977 is on its way in as well...
    The 505 has a good running motor and functioning 4ZF HP22. The 504 has 3ZF HP22 and the 4 cyl carburettor engine. It is in relatively good shape but was stored 20 years ago in a barn.
    All cars are LHD as I am living in Europe.

    Now to my project, and I hope to get some input here and will post any progress. I’m still in the start phase and nothing concrete will happen this year, I will just start collecting the bits nescessairy to do the conversion as I want to keep it as bolt on as possible...

    Well: I would like to take out the 4cyl and its automatic transmission and put the even-fire V6 with aut in it.
    I would need to update the breaking system (authorities require it because of higher output 143 bhp instead of 93)

    Parts I have:
    V6 even fire with all looms, complete LH jetronic from tank to injectors.
    Cat and exhaust 505 V6
    Complete cooling system 505 V6
    Torque tube 505 sedan v6 auto
    Torque tube 504 break 4cil auto
    Complete Front struts 604 V6 1977 to be overhauled.
    Breakbooster 604 turbo diesel 1980
    Master Break cylinder 604 V6 1985
    Radiator 505 and 604 v6 auto.
    15 inch aloys

    What torquetube would I need (if none of the current would fit)?

    Breaking system:
    To upgrade it I would like to place the “ensemble” of the 604 with vented discs in the front, the 604 MBC but the standard rear drums, any issues??

    Suspension:
    I am thinking of slightly lowering on all axles,
    Any suggestions?

    Advertisement


    Front suspension:
    Do the 604 front struts bolt-on? Would be great to overhaul them and just mount them. Once mounted, Will distance between the wheels be the same?
    Torsion bar: a bigger one from 604 TI would fit?

    Diff:
    With current 4cil automic gearbox diff and V6 automatic gearbox any issues?

    The ltd slipp-diff of the V6 wouldn’t fit in the rearaxle of the 504 wagon I suppose?

    To convert rear drums to discs:
    What would be the way forward?

    Gearshifter;
    Any issues to connect current 504 gear shifter for 3 gears to 4 gears?

    Electrics:
    Any issues to make it work?

    Rev counter:
    Although not mounted I could change the dash for a 504 TI or maybe even the nice “monte carlo” dash from the late 504 coupé/cabs.
    Any issues?

    I hope that some of you have experience/knowledge with (some) of the above.

    I am starting to collect parts the coming months and your input will help me.

    Have a good day!

    Walter

    Hi Walter,

    good to see someone fixing up a "real" Peugeot!

    Most of your questions can be answered by feeding each question into "Google". Google will probably redirect you to aussiefrogs anyway. There are numerous detailed posts on your topics (Mostly before the plastic Peugeots became popular).

    Good Luck

    I have been surfing the net quit a bit and found some answers but not a lot (yet). But I know that neither torque tubes won't fit, and that the 505 doesn't have the LSD I thought it would have.

    I still haven't got the cars (504 wagon aut. 1978 and 505 sedan V6 aut) at my place so I am still in the "paper exercise".

    But it seems that fitting the V6 wouldn't be the big issue.

    Fitting the ZF4 to the 504 wagon body is maybe an issue. The current bracket that holds the tail of the automatic transmission is conceived for the ZF3 and maybe that will be adaptable to the ZF4.(?)

    On the 505 wagon that bracket looks quit different for the ZF4 transmissions (compared to those of earlier ZF3 bracket models).
    And maybe that system (because it contains some rods and chock absorbers) would be best?

    Someone already mounted a zf4 in a 504 wagon?

    The 4spd box is longer so you will need to cut the tunnel and move the rear mpunt back by the appropriate ammount and shorten the torque tube and prop shaft by the same ammount. Also the mount for the wagons we got here with the 4spd is radically different to th 504 wagon.

    As Robbo mentioned the torque tube will need to be cut down to length , but also note that the 604 prop shaft is a different diameter to 504/505 . The center bearing in the 604 is larger to suit the bigger prop shaft.

    You will not be able to use the 604 master cylinder and booster in the 504 with rear drum brakes , no residual pressure valve , convert to rear disc. No idea what is involved in rear disc as I have never done it. Fit the bigger 604 front roll bar for road use.

    The diff centers are all the same , you can use the LSD from the 604 and fit it into the wagon rear axle.

    Gear shift , just use the shiftier to match the gearbox

    The 604 front suspension will fit straight in to the 504 , it will increase front track and give you a little negative camber.

    Good luck

    Thanks Ian and Andy,

    How could I improve the performance of the brakesystem with standard parts?

    The V6 and ZF4 come from a 505 and go into the 504 wagon aut. Couldn’t I just use the tube and propshaft of the 504 and shorten it or, better, find one from a later 505 wagon aut zf4? Would that fit in the current 504 wagon diff? Are 505 shafts also thicker?
    The shaft and tube of the 505 sedan are of no use because the axle/suspension are not independent on a 504 wagon

    The residual pressure valve will be somewhere in the rear part of the braking system if it is like a 404 which has it in the 4 way union on the front cross member, does the 504 wagon have it in the master cylinder?
