  1. Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a place I may buy an XID diesel motor for my 304 in

    This is the same motor as fitted to 77-82 305.
    I am in Greece.

    was fitted to a few early 305's dont know if this is any help as i can see
    no one else has replied yet and its been a while since you posted
    basically was a chain driven version of the xud so i'm not sure if the two
    are interchangable
    GT may be more use than me on this one if you're still stuck

    Hi Jeff,

    I'm coming late once again :-(
    No clue, as I've never seen an XID. I know it's the engine fitted on Mk1
    305s, as 82- models used the XUD. They could be slightly different, as the
    205 had to be modded (+1 or 2cm on front wheels gap) to fit the XUD in - may
    well explain why there isn't that much room in 205s/309s XU/XUD powered
    engine bay.
    I went out to the Web to find some data, not found much, but the XID is a
    1548cc engine, I guess it's really not only a chain-driven XUD. Moreover the
    XUD was a "high-tech" engine, when it was released in 1980 (as the XU was).

    The XID is a chain driven engine with the gearbox under the engine.
    The engine cooling fan was diven off the crankshaft pulley via a belt
    the did a 90 degree turn via two jockey wheels. Really weird to look
    at, but easy to change once you've done a couple. The clutch was a bit
    of a pain to do, and expensive as it came with the flywheel as I
    recall. There was a petrol version, which was slightly more common in
    the UK.
