    The cylinders are number in a typical weird French way .
    No 1 cylinder is at the flywheel end of the front bank then 2 & 3 are the other two cylinders of the front bank .No 3 being the timing gear end.
    Nos 4 5 & 6 are the back bank starting with No 4 at the flywheel end.

    Thanks Rally!

    Got the wires sorted for a friend. Car started right up. This is the only 24 valve XM in South Africa. Private import. I wonder hom many left in the world, being such a cam eating engine....

    I think there are a few as private imports in Australia. I saw one at Paris motors in Melbourne about 10 years ago. I don't think there was any more room to even fit another pipe in under the bonnet.

    Cheers,

    Hi Ken
    After getting to know this car I got to agree. Everything is packed in tight!! It there any solution to the cam eating properties of this engine?

    Later cars had ceramic faced lifters, this apparently alleviates the problem. Unless the car is a "barn find" there is a good chance the problem parts have been upgraded already.
