I recently acquired a Peugeot Vogue and rebuilt the engine with a Polini cdi Crank, polini 70 kit, sha 15 w/ Polini intake and reeds. The engine runs fantastically but the variator needs rebuilding. So:
I am looking for a thorough explanation of the mechanics of the 103 Variator. I just like to understand these things so i can diagnose problems correctly. This is my first Peugeot.
My main question is, do BOTH cheeks of the variator move inward toward the belt independently of each other? One side actuated by a set of hinged weights and the other a ball/ramp mechanism? Or do these parts work in tandem at the same time? Can you tune each side separately to control different stages of variation? Thanks for your time.
