Valver

Post by Tim Leech » Mon Nov 08, 2010 10:58 pm

cant believe I'm doing this but I have fallen out of love with my 16v, i just dont use it anymore, 1500 miles in 4 years is low even by my standards.

Its a good car but has a few issues but is road legal and looks good, goes well and sounds awesome.

So if anyone is after a valver that needs a bit of work then hit me up.

The boot floor area has been patched but isnt great (new rear lamp panel supplied as thats been plated), it could do with re-piping although there is no leaks, the arms and struts are sound, the drivers door hinge has been welded up but isn't straight so the door drops a bit.

Too many new bits to list inc 4 new tyres (a NEW alloy), spheres, driveshafts, cambelt and tensioner, lamps etc etc and paint too.

Also scorpion exhaust, K&N and a devil middle box by pass pipe.

Whatever happens its NOT being broken or "donored" and reserve the right to sell it to who I want

I know a top grade valver is worth £1000+ but im open to sensible offers from enthusiasts.


:shock:

Its not that, I have a hankering for something else (non Citroen) that I could use the funds and space for, I love the 16v to look at but not to drive anymore.

Sounds like someone doth protest too mucheth :wink:


Beetles - always liked the look of them but they are soooo noisy - and I seem to remember an episode of Skippy in which a Beetle caught fire and it was difficult for him to put out because of magnesium in the engine (?) - I thought at the time him being a kangaroo wasn't helping much either. :)

Im not a fast driver to be honest, loved beetles since i was tiny, had one in 2004 which although was poo I adored, I sold it as it wasnt worth restoring and missed it ever since. Plus I work for VW and a few of the techs have them and I do lust over the cars with envy!

Must admit to really liking the looks of old beetles, but the driving experience does absolutely nothing for me at all, infact there aren't many cars worse tbh, but if that's your bag & you love em, then i'm not knocking anyone who does. I suppose they are a bit like 2cv's, you either like them or don't, a bit like marmite :lol:

2011 Mini Cooper D Clubman - it does over 60mpg
1992 TZD Turbo - SORN - slowly getting there
1991 Gti 16V - Blaze is back on the road since 2008
1990 Gti 8Valve SOLD - looks like it's been scrapped
2002 Mini Cooper S - SOLD - i miss this car
1992 TXD - Scrapped in March 2014

Are there some pictures anywhere? I had a skim through the gallery, but didn't trip over any of your valver.

The Aircon is disconnected at the moment but I have the compressor and a belt, Currently showing 51000 miles but had a new speedo under my ownership in 1998 so has done approx 141k now.

Good bits:

LOADS of history with it, Ive owned it twice.

Strong engine that's been rebuilt in the past and uses no oil, gearbox is A1 as is the clutch which has just had the cable changed. New plugs, leads, cap, coolant etc.

New genuine Citroen cambelt and tensioners less than 1000 miles ago

5 new spheres and LHM changed less than 1500 miles ago.

Rear arm bearings and struts are fine, suspension rises and falls as it should do.

4 Newish Goodyear eagle on tidy alloys, (one of which was bought NEW in 2008 and is unmarked), alloy spare.

Interiors good with no rips or tears but a crack in the vent panel on the dash and its had a phone kit once but has two blanks.

Two new drive-shafts and new gearbox oil less than 1500 miles ago.

New lamps all round inc fog lamps and clear side repeaters.

Paintwork good, no real rust and very few marks, has had the bumpers painted but front one is a bit patchy.

Scorpion stainless rear box, devil link pipe (middle box by pass) and K&N Filter so wails like a banshee when on song!, correct front pipe with divider.

All 4 windows, both mirrors and sunroof work as does the central locking and I have two keys.

Sony Remote Control Radio/CD with 6x9 Speakers in the rear shelf which look good and sound great.

Polished fuel rail and ported throttle body.

MOT until 18/2/2011, tax until the end of Nov 2010.

Not so good bits:

Oil pressure gauge in/op (new one supplied)

One tappet is a bit noisy but doesnt affect performance

Drivers interior Lamp doesn't work when you open the door.

ABS Lamp comes on sometimes but goes out again.

Lumpy on start up but ok when warmed.

Has had some patch welding done to front inner wings and boot floor where it meets the rear panel to pass the MOT but isn't very tidy although you cant see it from up top, I have a complete new rear lamp panel to go with the car if you wanted to rip it out and start a fresh, the rear exhaust hanger has made a break for it and is held up by a tie wrap.

Heater works very well as done the fan but its not very adjustable and is either on or off.

NO LHM Leaks but I am told some of the pipes are rusty but they have been treated since then and are not an MOT fail.

Could do with setting up as I don't think its as fast as it could be but get it past 5000rpm and she flies...

If someone wants it and will carry on the work I have started then please get in touch, if you want it as a donor or to use for yours or a 205 then get stuffed! as I will keep it.
