    Default Diesel Mechanic? - For a 1970 Citroen H Van Diesel Indenor

    Hi there all

    Advertisement


    I'm based in Melbourne's inner North and wanting to ask if anyone knows a skilled and reliable Diesel Mechanic that would know his way around my 1970 H Van Diesel Indenor?

    Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Mark,
    I can't help with a diesel mechanic but just curious as to why you are using 2 usernames, this one registered in 2014 and ambro96 registered in 2011 but with your more recent posts?

    One of them has to go, which one do you want to continue using?

    Cheers
    Chris

    No problem, I'll merge the two accounts and if successful you should retain Cab55 CoffeeVan

    You should really talk to the owner of the site about advertising. . . gibgib is your man

    It's an old Ricardo type engine as made by an arm of Peugeot, and similar to Landrover and other agricultural diesels, so a Landie or tractor mechanic might be a goer too.

    Indenor were also fitted to Peugeot 504 and 505 . So a Peugeot service company is an option.

    Try around marine repairers or classic boat sites or clubs,heaps of these engines were marinised -and still are Indenor was still in Germany still making parts for these last I saw best of luck,Jim and Bob Redieax converted a van and ute in Brisbane years ago,Jim had visions of selling them to Mining Companies but Citroen showed no interest in selling them to Maxim Motors AIM.
    All the best Broomy

    Simple basic diesel with conventional injection system. Nothing flash so any diesel fitter, truck/tractor mechanic etc would be able to help but labor costs may be prohibitive. And if my memory serves me correctly, engine parts were ridiculously expensive. They're probably much cheaper these days.

    PS
    I know that's not an answer to your question but it may help in sourcing out the right mechanic so as to avoid getting ripped off.
