My 404 Coupé Injection

129 posts in this topic

The handbrake cable and control were assembled and mounted today, along with the pedal box.

 

The worst part of the whole operation was discovering that the buttress under the driver's side, which is a Peugeot original, has a captive stud that is about 6 mm too short to hold the metal handbrake sheath under the driver's floor. So I had to remove the brass clamp and reduce its thickness by about 3 mm on both sides using a Dremel and files (good old engineering on this part, with massive redundancy) in order to get it on.

 

The pedal box was dead easy of course and the stuff under the car was as well.

The front seats have been reupholstered by Geoff Chrysler.  Very nice: natural grain dyed through light grey "Hyde" brand leather, with heating elements (I'll need a better alternator than it came with to power that!).  Parts of the headliner (also redone by Geoff) are visible in the foreground.  His next task is redoing the rear bench, which has a fold-down armrest.  I may get the parts in the photo this coming Monday.

I whipped the Kugelfischer injection pump and head off today.  I'll bring the pump with me to Britain next week for calibration and new seals, and the head seems good with no fine cracks between valve seats, although I have a new one to use.  The liners have a nearly undetectable lip at the top so could be reused, but won't be, because I have new ones.
