Peh interfall for my updates are taking a dump, allot of construction on the house etc.
Spend a few nights again with the welder, feeling more and more comfortable with that thing. I was really nervous on the roofpanel welding regarding flexing but both the rusted sunroof part and the 80s carkit antenna are now welded shut, will need a minimal filler.

Floor i patched up and recreated a box for the driverseat mounting. original one was to far gone

Welded up the last bits, rust spray and paint done too.
Redid the wires for the alternators so the system charges again.
Also welded up the petrol mount on the diesel exhaust damper.
Replaced the moonroof with the one of the black donor, leak free and works!

Technically its done.
Going to get the engine swap registered somewhere next month..

Also i was going to keep it stock but i am cleaning out the garage and found stuf of the 760 turbo build ..

The petrol engine is now registered and checked by the gouvernement.
First drive with it since the swap. Few things i noticed

Noisy flywheel bearing
When i let off the gas big gray cloud from the exhaust
Oil in the enginebay.
Stuttering engine (but that was low fuel i think, was running on fumes)

The PO of the B230fk mentioned oil leaks so i think replace/clean flame trap and Some thicker oil.
Still a whole bunch of odds and ends till perfection but feels good the swap is apporved

Did a little check, at startup huge clouds again.
The PO said Some leaks at the engine and i suspected the PVC.
The actuator at the turbo was loose too.

I guess the engine having boost again really shows the pvc glogs.
The intake hose with oil and non at the turbo side confirms this.
Engine runs great otherwise. So time for a pvc job, perhaps a catchtank too?

Cleaned out the intercooler, PVC and lines. Still the car smokes like crazy.
Smoke also coming out of the oil filler cap when removed and the dipstick.
The engine was leaky when i got it, drove it around just fine no smoke at all so i am at a loss why the sudden smoke problems.

Besides that been tinkering with the wiring connecting the cluster, now got the tach working and replaced some bulbs. also removed the EGR stuff as a 86 car does not need that here to pass inspection

Still this sucks as this way there is no way i can get it passed inspection with the clouds of gray smoke

Clouds at idle and when you let off the gas?
Did you check the turbo itself? Did you change the fuel filter? Maybe that has got some crap in it.

Yeah the dumpvalve and intercooler where full with oil and the pvc was glogged.
Big clouds when let off the gas. Have not driven the car het cause off the smoke it now makes at idle.

Just went in the garage and i do feel like there still is a diesel sort of smell.. not sure.

Checked the turbo and no real play, most of the oil was on the intake side not the turbo side

Replaced the oil and filter. Pvc and intercooler are now clean.
Replaced the sparkplugs, one near the firewall was gray/brown with white deposit.
Put in the new interior too so i get Some more garage space.

Did a conpression and the nr4 had 11 bar all the others 10 bar.

Still getting Some smoke from the dipstick hole. And Made a new video of the exhaust...
I think it must be the turbo at this point..?

I was thinking this at one point as the oil was so thin, hence the replacement.
But how would that result in the smoke i am seeing now?

Oil return could very well be full to come to think of it looking at how the pvc was.
Neglected engine is neglected, still it was free so no complaints

I once had a continuous spraying injector in a volvo 850. Result it ran on 4 cilinders. And the not burnt fuel left the exhaust as a whitegrey pufs.

Injectors swapped, no change.

Car starts up with no smoke at all, within one minute it starts to smoke from little to big constant clouds
