    Thank you all for the responses, especially thank you to Faulksy for the step-by-step instruction to remove and clean the ignition switch! Indeed it was the ignition switch. It wasn't too hard...

    Hi Gerry, that sounds like a good solution if the switch is the culprit. I've just had a look at what the usual suppliers want for a RHD ignition switch and that's repair only, not a new one: about...

    Faulksy, I've just checked for voltage at the white multi plug, which connects to the ignition switch; there is 12.6V at three of the six terminals, all on the right side of the plug and are red,...

    Faulksy, you're spot on, I think. With the ignition on I measure 12.6V only at the positive feed terminal of the yellow multiplug, the rest of the terminals show nothing at all. So, ignition switch...

    Hi all,

    Iím having some issues with the wiring behind the dashboard of my new-to-me 1974 DS23 5-speed and would like some input from the experienced Aussie Frogs brains trust. When I got the car...

    I think Mark hits the nail on the head, as does Shane: it is not only the total sum of the parts which will need to be replaced or refurbished, nor the price of a perfect panel and paint job, but the...

    Good to hear that you and the Chrysler are OK; that could have ended much differently very easily. There's a lesson in there for many of us: fire extinguisher should be at an easily accessible...

    It was more a shotgun marriage, as Citroen went bankrupt in 1974 and Peugeot picked it up. It really is a shame seeing what is left now of this once-great brand. With these low sales numbers, I think...

    Hi Steve,
    these lines are made of nylon and are also used as vacuum lines on older Mercedes, which has worked for me. For repair, see below the link to Jint Nijman's website: Choose Citroen DS,...

    In addition: I "locked" the engine to be able to undo and retighten the timing chain nuts with a large screw driver wedged along the fly wheel (the starter motor was out anyway). Probably not as per...

    Well, it's time to report back. The sprockets came off in the end, but had never been removed since 1962, as there were no tool marks on the large nuts and the tabs were like new. The sprockets were...

    Don't these contain the spare parts, the appropriate hydraulic fluids and tools required to make it to the destination each time?

    Hi Steven, I just checked my cars. Three cars (2 x 1962 and 1 x 1960) all have 12mm regulator bracket mounting bolts, and the 1964 car has one 11mm head and one 12mm head. I'm happy to send you the...

    Thanks for all replies so far. As the attached pictures show I had secured the liners with washers and a bolt, so they couldn't move, the liners also stand slightly proud of the...

    I bought a full gasket set, branded DAP 242 and 142, unfortunately without any further information enclosed. The material seems to be copper on both sides with a white layer sandwiched in between.
  18. ID19 head gasket: dry installation or not?

    Hello all,
    I'm finally in the process of putting the rebuild head back on the long stroke engine; new valves, valve guides, valve stem seals and a minimal skim. The bolt holes in the engine block...

    Hi Peter,
    I have a new pair from Citroen Classics here which I don't need for a while yet.
    You can have them for what I paid for them a few months ago plus AusPost shipping to you. Let me know,...

    Well, the nuts have been removed. The tabs came away as you suggested John, with a sharp chisel to start the tab and then the flat chisel to bend them back properly. For future reference they are...

    Replying to your own last post is a bit silly, however I'm trying to remove the sprockets. They seem to be held in place by a 'washer', which is bend to lock into a cut-out in the nut. To be able to...

    Polyurethane conical bump stops are being produced and sold by Darrin of Citroen Classics in the UK. Cheap, easier to install than the older rubber ones and will last forever. Well, at least longer...

    Thanks all for your replies, it's great to get real-world-experience advice. I'll replace the chain and both sprockets and will not install a tensioner. If it was good enough for the late Roger...

    Hi Sven, here a picture of the pressure regulator on my 1962 ID. I have no reason to believe it is not the original alloy one on this car, as everything else was. Cheers, Erik.
  25. ID19 timing chain tensioner: good idea or not?

    Hi all,
    as part of "due diligence" before putting the long stroke engine back together (thanks Michael and John for the replacement cylinder head) I had a look at the timing chain. Well, "slop" does...
