    Default Motor parts for CX

    Hi guys, who sells motor parts for CX these days in Australia? I am thinking of bearings ( mains and big ends )
    cam followers, timing chain set and maybe pistons and sleeves. Plus of course the obligatory full gasket set!
    If I can buy locally it would be preferable to getting them in from overseas!

    AN Auto imports in Melbourne stock most of this. It is the same as for the DS generally.
    He doesn't have cam followers tho'

    Picked up a head gasket set form Ebay------- advertised as new ( unopened) old stock. Packet had been opened and spark plug tube seals and an exhaust flange gasket missing. Other metal faced gaskets affected by surface rust!
    This is one reason I wish to buy locally!

    I have now seen the internals----------Big end wear on 2 and 4.
    So I will be looking at undersize shells and a crank regrind!
    All else appears to be OK
    Tomorrows job is to carefully measure up!

    Found them:---- 110 Kathryn road Knoxfield 9763 7213
    I had to separate A and N with a space to get a result in Yellow Pages.

    I checked out the address in Google maps and strangely enough it is right along side the place of an old friend whom I haven't seen for over thirty years. He was an avid Big 6 man and provided his two matching Big 6s as our wedding cars. I am beginning to wonder wether or nor this business is run by his son Andre.

    Bit faster than my experience. My experiences have been good, not like some of our number.

    For a lot of money, they had/have a new RHD Diravi rack....
