    Default quick DS quiz

    Question:

    Closing panels on underside of sills that screw on, do they have rubber seals on both sides or just the outer?

    If just on outer edge do you use one continuous strip along both panels?

    the manual lists ONE (typo?) 1.8m rubber or 4 950mm pieces.

    I presume you either run a two long ones or four shorter ones on outer edge.

    I can’ t remember its been 5 years since I removed them!

    Looking forward to answers :]

    Pretty sure it's both edges if you can make it fit.

    I vaguely recall getting some edging strip from Clark Rubber that looked like it would do the trick, just don't recall whether I ever fitted it or not.

    Probably not!

    Hi Guys,

    From memory, there are 4 Z rubbers, 2 either side, that attach the out part of the closing panel to the outer part of the sill, and the long spongy U section rubber seals the closing panel where it meets the inner sill.

    The Z rubbers are in 2 pieces per side as there is a sill reinforcement in the middle that stop the rubber being fitted continuous.

    The closing panels are attached to the sill on the inner side with self tappers and screwing into 6 small plates that are at right angles to the inners sill. The plates should be fitted with clips for the self tappers.

    The rubbers are readily available from Der Franzose, and relatively inexpensive.

    Clarke rubber should be you last resort. The parts from DF are pretty exact replicas of the original, and purchasing from companies like them will encourage them to produce more DS Parts, but buying from CR will produce nothing.

    best regards,

    Greg

    Both answers are good! Thankyou. I vaguely remember European Autocare suggesting glueing them on to the sill or using sealant for extra protection. As for any of the repro rubber I have serious doubts unfortunately as I have been repeatedly stung with inferior garbage and the amount of forum users who back that up add strength to the argument unfortunately. Its total crap. : (

    Icon11 Continuing the quiz theme. . .

    Have a look at this engine bay. . . What's unusual?



    I'm going to show my lack of knowledge. . .
    Is this a 3 bearing motor with a late model head? The car is a DS19 1968 - LHM 3rd nose - I can't say I've ever noticed or known this set-up

    Hi
    It's a standard, early five bearing engine, set up for 1985cc. So DS 19 and ID19, but they all have the casting that takes the oil pump at the bottom end and can take a distributor at the top end. On the DS21, the distributor end is blanked off because the distributor is instead located at the front of the engine. Early 21s with a distributor at the front had a plate bolted over the top hole. Later cars have a core plug pressed into the hole.

    Ahh so!! Thanks for your insight

    I wonder if we would have seen this set-up in Aus?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm sure there are engines like this in Australia, it has the inlet manifold mainly internally in the head, with only a small manifold in the middle to take the carby. It was similar to the DS & ID 19 setup It was only fitted to DV, DY DL & DLF (safari) cars to 09/1968.

    Best regards,

    Greg
