Front cylinders assembled:

Autopsy on the old oil pump - trashed inside.  The new one is perfect but of a slightly different form.  I will have to use a later type oil strainer with it.

Brakes mounted.
 
It seems I may have lost or at least misplaced the brass connections between the front brake hoses and the forward brake cylinder.  The hose can be screwed straight in but that's not correct. I'll find two of them somewhere.

This arrived from Peugeot Classic in Sochaux Thursday morning.  I have another shipment of stuff from them arriving probably next week.

Friday morning: I had to pay $82 to bail this new old stock camshaft out of the post office:

Coated in the usual preservative, looking good.

I ordered some 0.5 mm oversized main bearings sent from Peugeot but they sent the wrong ones - three main bearing lead-Indium 404 Injection mains 0.3 mm oversized (visible in the photo).  So the correct ones have been sent today, and it seems they don't want the incorrect ones back.  Also in the shipment were the things in the photo.  New stainless steel instrument panel trim for when I eventually build the Jaeger sports instrument panel, plus a spare oil pressure sending unit.

 

In the bag are some original type small diameter hose clamps for the heater hoses.

 

I also got some English language owners manuals of cars I've had (404 C but with carb. engine) or wanted (504C). The latest bit (504 C owners manual, La Production Peugeot 1963 and a first edition 404 Cabriolet French language owners manual should be here soon.

 

I will work on extracting the sludge trap plugs from the crankshaft this weekend. Likely have to drill all 4 out.

 

A set of the missing brass banjo fittings for the front drums has been sent by a kind soul in France, a 404 Club member - free! I'll send him something as a thank you.
