Ok, so i have a 1992 205 GTI,
I have the original Peugeot documentation that came with the car which suggests that i have a XU9JA/Z engine, which makes a whole lot of sense considering the year of the car.
Now, i know the engine has had a rebuild and/or likely a complete swap in the past..
I went to buy distributor leads the other day for the XU9JA/Z, when it came to fitting them on, i found they all fitted fine except that the coil had a male fitting, whereas the lead that i had been given was suited to a female fitting.
Hmmm.. After doing some investigation i found that the 405 came out with a XU9JA/Z motor? And sure enough, the coil has a male fitting just like mine..
So, unless i have a 405 coil, and 205 everything else, chances are that the whole engine is out of a 405
My question, firstly, how do i tell apart from the coil differences, what engine i have? are they basically the same? i have already fitted a water pump, crank seal, and timing belt..they all seemed to fit okay, are there any differences between models in this aspect?
