Injection or carb?

Post by cavmad »

Excusing my dimness is this engine injection or carb (it`s a 405 1.6 petrol) and would it go straight into my BX16 (carb) please? Thanks,


EDIT! Forgot to add the picture!

Depends on when it was made. The 405 and BX engines are the same XU5- except maybe the carb-fed 405 engines had Weber carbs, if I remember correctly. After 92 or thereabouts, they HAD to be injection.
Occasionally constrained by geography. When not driving, can rely on ferry, two wheels and musclepower when a couple of miles as the crow flies would become a round-road-trip ten times the distance.

That's up to silly money already. £150 for a 1.6 petrol 405 saloon is about £100 too much. Granted, a late 405 TD estate is still worth several hundred £, but a low-spec petrol saloon is worth nothing.

I'd keep looking for something a whole load cheaper!

PS... Cavmad... did you get my pm about the cav bits?
