Out in wildest Seval, in the land of Romans and Iti's, is a factory which, for many a long year has heard the call (in Italian of course) "Pass me a Peugeot badge please!" and soon after "Please throw me over a Fiat badge from the other box!"
There was a time when asking for a Talbot part could also be heard. Being British however, it was not so popular.

Sorry, not personal experience as I have owned Fiat and Ford, BUT, I believe that although the chassis are the same, the engines are not.
I understand that Fiat have a cam belt,and the Pugs have a chain.
For me a chain would be my preference!

Peugeots (& Citroens) have 2.2 and 3.0 engines

Fiats have 2.3 and 3.0 engines.

The Chassisssss and the 3.0 engines are the same, the 2.2 and 2.3 engines are different.

Not sure about the 2.2 having a chain cam, but the 3.0 does.

and occasionally they would throw in a Citroen badge.

yes, engines are different, but still confusing. I have a Fiat / Hymer, but the engine is an Iveco. Previously I had a Peugeot / Pilote 2.5td which had a sluggish lump of an engine, but steady. Before that a (199 Peugeot / Autocruise with a 1.9TD, not bad for pulling a small van.


As far as I know, the only motorhoming Oxford United supporter in Felpham.

I don't feed trolls!

Not all Pugs have chains. Mine is a 2003 2 ltr and has a cam belt. I have owned it for 12 months and am very happy with it so far. I have also six Fiat cars (two in our household currently) and have also been very happy with every one of them. I've not owned a Fiat commercial vehicle though.

Unfortunately, if there is a certain conversion you are looking for, most do not build on both Fiat and Pugs. Usually one or the other, with a few exceptions.
I seem to remember reading in MMM that the 2.2 is a chain, and as we know the 3 litre is a chain.

Had a Burstner on a Fiat which was trouble, bought a new Peugeot Boxer and did my own conversion and very pleased with it.
I thought that Peugeots had a Ford engine.

If it is the same as my 2.2 Ford engine, it will be a chain

I think some Fords actually have Peugeot engines.
There was a joint development project a few years ago (Ford have rarely produced a half decent engine without outside help*)
There is some debate about how much Peugeot DNA is in the current "Ford" 2.2 engine.

*Lotus/Cosworth/Yamaha/Peugeot etc. etc. etc.
