Hi everyone,

I have a Peugeot Expert at work that's heading to the scrappies due to a fault in the fuel system starting from tank all the way to injectors.
The van has an RHK engine and i was wondering if I could salvage any parts that could go in my RHR engine on a 407 such as turbo, radiator etc.
Does anyone know if that's possible or would they be too different? any ideas are greatly appreciated. Cheers!

RHR and RHK are the same engine the turbo on the van is different to the car one though as is some of the pipework hence the different engine code !!

The engines and boxes are worth good money I would not be giving the scrap man a payday !

Hi, I just got the van back from the garage (who claimed it needs a new everything), plugged it in and noticed there's a difference in diesel pressure when revved high. After a bit of looking around it could just be a loose connection to the high pressure rail.
now my next question, is it worth more in parts or fixed and sold? what do you guys think?

Running scruffy new shape expert van is worth £500 at least engine and box also worth that on there own :)

The engines fit Peugeot taxis so there is a demand for them.

It is running scruffy at the moment but after im done with it, theoretically, it should be perfect.
Bodywork is good with only one tiny ding, inside pretty clean, 90.000 miles, and it is a 58 reg which i thought i could easily get more than 500 for? maybe im wrong. Bearing in mind i'm getting it for free, there's nothing to lose really.

maybe i didnt explain the problem correctly, wouldnt be the first time :)) (english not my first language)
So I went to pick up this van (company van) from the garage. THEY said it needs a new complete fuel system so MD decides to scrap it.
I take the van, tinker with it a bit and discover small electrical problem with connector on high pressure fuel rail and/or high pressure fuel pump. point is i put my hand around the engine, wiggle some wires, engine runs beautifully. Take hand of, runs like [email protected] which to me was obvious that garage was wrong. (I kept my discovery all to myself haha so i can get the van for next to nothing)
Hope it makes more sense now.
Other than this fault, van is sweet as a nut
