I worked on the engine, the famous "clean" engine in this thread...

I understand that it's necessary to install the mechanical fuel pump in addition to the electric one. I thought not to put it back up and put a lid instead.

The mechanical fuel pump to act as a gas pressure regulator in this way.

Do you have any information on this ?

In this case I have to get the membrane with the central rod (yellow arrow on pÓcture) for the mechanical pump. But I would not want to buy the complete set. Someone has an info for that ?

Salut Chris,

Do you know if the membrane can be disassociated from the set ?

If it is the case, the Citroen Traction have a quite large membrane that you could recut :

Some works on the engine....

The internal surface condition of the engine is excellent. I leave it so.

Custom built pistons (forged aluminiium) and bored cylinders.

But not easy to work correctly without correct workshop manual. I use the 2000 and the 1900 pre 1954...

I like those pistons, with that valve pocket design they are going to make more power nice, such attention to the details Chris big effort from you and your team, this will be a beautiful car when it is finished.

Some work done today.

I find the trimming of the distribution very subtle on this model, compared to the series 101 and 105.

It starts to look like an engine

We made the tools for the valve settings. It's much easier to adjust than 101 and 105 ....

Now and before ...

We sandblasted the doors structure. We found on the hinges some numbers. We think it was a way for Touring to recognize who worked on the bodywork. 2 companions on each side, two numbers on each side.

Could this possibly facilitate bodywork repairs if the car came back with an accident?

Or does someone have a better idea ?

different release bearing for clutch

Hi there,

As usual, another peculiarity of the car. The release bearing it's not the common one. The one on the market is the flat one, and I am looking for a thicker one.

I saw a thread in this forum with the correct bearing, but no soure for that.

Do you have some source for this release bearing ?
Thanks in advance...
