    Now then, since my poor baby engine has been seriously abused by some meanies, the parts have had to be replaced. They have kindly left me quite a lot of them in my boot for me to identify.

    I thought you lot would like a look, and guess in accordance with the number next to the file and get some real motoring knowledge

    Oh - not even I know all of the parts - so your help would be appreciated

    off the top of my head:

    83- piston
    73- head gasket
    74- vaguely like a rocker cover but it isn't. Hmm.
    76- timing belt.
    77- oil breather hose
    78- looks like valves
    79- not too sure, part of a valve assembly off the top of my head
    80- pulley for drive belt. Probably wrong on this one though
    81- no idea, some kind of seal. Looks to big to be a valve stem oil seal
    82- gasket, hmm. fits onto part 74.

    Not half of it I'm afraid. I could easily put up more, but it might get silly.
    Have a look at the receipt.
    - Receipt
    - Another part

    Knox - I have to say you haven't done too badly at all.
    Those piccies are a nuisance. I need to resize them to fit the page.

    Is 77 not the air intake ducting? 80 I'd guess was the flywheel but could be wrong. 83 valve. 85 could be the idle control valve but I can't really see the end of it well enough. The others I either agree with what's been said or I don't know!
    That's an impressive receipt, my old 306 came from Warwick Wright too!

    That is an impressive list of receipts. Thats not including my pressure testing, tappets, skimming, head gasket repair and new cylinder head & fans :rolleyes: Moral of the story - don't buy a Pug

    The moment of truth - I am absolutely delighted. The mechanic drove my car round to the front of the forecourt and started revving it up in the showroom car park admist everyones happy smiles. I just had this dirty grin on my face. Sounded sweet.

    I put the key in the ignition and it started within a second, not 5 as previously had done. The slightest touch on the throttle and it was gagging to go. I decided to have a flirt with a Cooper S last night at about 02.30am down a nice stretch of A1. I completely left it. In fact, it would of been closer if I'd raced the JC Works. I now know everything is good and back in order

    So so happy, after 6 months (Mid-October). Now just need reimbursement as I'm a student and I have just paid out in excess of £5k in the last 6 months. My insurance is due in 2 weeks. :eek:

    Awesome, glad it's sorted. Have you got any pics of it? I loved my 306, even though it was nothing special as they go, but it was written off when I bent a chassis arm
    :eek: That's a lot of money to be paying! No idea how you manage that as a student, let alone to insure it! They are fantastic cars though

    :top: Man, that's great! I'm really happy for you. I know what it's like to have your car sit up for a Looonnnng time not running. Then when you get it back and it's running as good as it ever was. That's a good feeling.

    Awesome, gorgeous car mate. Think a 306 might be back at the top of my list of cars to buy again!

    Thanks

    Pugs tend to go wrong quite a bit, so if you are serious about getting one, email or PM me before you do as I have plenty of experience with them and I can tell the difference between one thats good and bad.
