I have my Alter II (a swb station wagon) insured with Adrian Flux on a 5000 mile a year policy, parked on the driveway for a few hundred notes I seem to remember.. I also tried NFU and one other that knew what the vehicle was but wanted almost a grand.
I have another two specialist cars insured with Adrian Flux and would recommend them, always found a good service and quick at responding to questions.
Where abouts are you based? There is another UMMbulance in devon that is converted to a rather smart camper.May 11, 2013 at 8:46 am #861
ps. it’ll be well worth your while joining the club. You get a quarterly magazine, entry via this site to all the factory manuals and parts lists/diagrams, lists of alternative parts/sources and alot of scans of the old club magazines which are full of useful technical articles – someone has always modified or fixed the bit you are thinking about.. very helpful!!May 11, 2013 at 8:41 pm #862AnonymousInactive

Peugeot (XD3TE) 2.5 Turbo Intercooled Diesel, as fitted to the 504 GTD Saloon – although I believe there are quite a few differences, sump etc between the two so probably best to rebuild yours?
If stuck I think Tom Ashworth still has an engine for sale and a rebuilt head – his contact details are on the front page of the website in the treasure trove bit…
Have you joined the club? Graham is a wealth of knowledge.
Good luck, it’ll be worth it!
