Would a GSA benefit from genuine gallic bougies d'allumage like 2CVs are supposed to? I bought a pair of frog sparklers from ECAS when running a Lomax and it seemed to make a difference.


Not in my opinion, the best plugs I found for the air-cooled Cits were Denso's racing plugs, they last seemingly forever. But the standard ones are just fine, I've never known one go high resistance like the NGK ones I was fitting in the mid-2000s.

NGK may well have sorted the problem, I gave up after a year and too many which were faulty out of the box (about 1 in 40) as well as those which began failing within 1000 miles (>1 in 20).

The flat four likes W22EP-U (or ES-U for slightly quieter running), flat twins use the W22FS-U.

I tried 'em all, these Densos work best imo.

Substitute the '22' (equiv to NGK 7) for 24 (NGK 8 ) or even 27 (NGK 9) for cooler running plugs if running flat out for extended periods in hot weather, or for tuned/turbocharged engines.

Should've mentioned the recommended plug heat rating for these engines was one hotter, it was set in the days of leaded fuel which ran cooler and never updated for sans-plombe, which runs hotter - so cooler plugs needed.

Whilst up fondling the Oxford, I took the opportunity to change the rear light cluster

The old one was pretty damaged
IMG_20180429_105618.jpg

The new one slotted in lovely
IMG_20180429_105627.jpg

But now the RHS one looks ropey in comparison.

IMG_20180429_105722.jpg

It rewarded me by idling really low, almost as if it would stall. Even the mildest touch on the throttle sorts it out - one to investigate.



After the day of prodding the Oxford full of holes, I papped the GSA up on high setting and had a peek underneath ( lying beside, not under the car)

Had a thought on this point. Is that a kinda normal thing on carb cars on a start? Starting dumps fuel in, some ignites, some doesn't until it properly gets going. This loads the spark plugs/etc up a bit and causes it to be running slightly too rich. So then it just needs a dab of throttle to clear it's throat and plugs. I might be wrong, but the MG has done that and the theory sounds alright in my head when I was justifying the low idle on start on occasion.

It started doing it about 60 miles into the trip up there and now does it not or cold as soon as off the choke.

I can confirm its idling issues.

 

When Mr Touring kindly gave me a shot of the GSA, I was frantically adjusting the choke as soon as I got into the driver's seat as it was idling so low the charge light was blinking. It really was not a happy bunny. It was behaving fine under load though. Very very lovely to drive!

The 1299 (lighter flywheel, higher compression, theoretically more economical but rarely in practice) engines were under-fuelled and notorious for flat spots on the first choke, often the only solution was to leave the choke flap chanted by a few mms.

If this one pulls without hesitation, I'd forgive it the lazy idle.

One gorgeous GSa I bought from a WW2 tank engineer was perfect in every way other than this, only on hot days did it run ok without a smidgen of choke. Yet when across the Channel, all was well even on cold Spring mornings - I put it down to the fuel quality we suffer in the UK.

I've decided I like this thing sufficiently enough to actually attempt to tend to its issues..

MrCitroen of this here beige has generously offered to come round tomorrow to help me rectify the exhaust blow and try to sort the low idle.

I took the opportunity to do some preparatory work so as to best utilise his time (and to start to comprehend just what the little Citroen was made of..)

First, Regardez le engine bay.
IMG_20180504_192301.jpg
It's a bit of a pickle - pipes, tubes and wires flutter back and forth, seemingly at random.

It's certainly a lot more cluttered than the other flat 4 air-cooled engine I have any experience of - the venerable VW.

Ah well, let's start at the top. The Airfilter is held on with some jubilee clips and (supposed to be) 2 8mm nuts.

The clips and single nut present came off easily, revealing quite the scene.


IMG_20180504_192630.jpg

IMG_20180504_192635.jpg

IMG_20180504_192810.jpg

I'd say it's safe to say that at least part of the exhaust blow is caused by the pipe that's no err. This has obviously been an issue for a long time - looking at the condition of things I reckon this was done before import.

In preparation for trying to get a new one fitted, I thought it best to try and remove the remnants of the old.
IMG_20180504_192804.jpg

This bottom piece had been jerryrigged to buggery with the clamp (14mm nut/bolt)
Slathered with sealant. And a bit of wood inside the pipe!


IMG_20180504_193329.jpg

IMG_20180504_193013.jpg

That done, it was time for the topside.3 11mm bolts hold the flanges together

IMG_20180504_193735.jpg

Whit a mess, and the cardboard 'gasket' was doing not a thing.

I stopped to have a bowl out of the air filter - not looking the best so I shall hunt down a replacement:)


IMG_20180504_192722.jpg

Next up was the spark plugs. Tentative pulling at the HT leads resulted in them coming off cleanly - though I think they are somewhat past their prime.

Access to the left bank was ok, but the right was somewhat more troublesome. A plethora of bracketry and ignition paraphernalia meant that my short extension and plug socket were exactly the wrong length.

IMG_20180504_195040.jpg

Nevertheless, persistence paid off, and I have 4 sooty plugs removed. Again, I suspect they were of the last millennium..

Those HT leads are certainly pre c1998, if they're (red) Bougicords. Very likely originals - amazing.

The exhaust balance pipe is a thing of the devil to fit especially now OE isn't easily available, likely intended to encourage a French owner who'd hung on to his G a bit long to buy a new one.

Make sure both engine mounts are rock-solid before clamping up front exhaust bits.

Thanks for the hints :) didn't touch the main exhaust today - a full report of what was achieved will follow shortly!

I think the leads are original - and a new set is on the cards I think, Mr Auto seem to sell them.

Fast forward to this morning, and it was time to get cracking.

We had 3 main goals..
1. Change the sparkplugs
2. Get it idling correctly
3. Sort the missing hotspot pipe.

As I said yesterday, the positioning of the sparkplugs was specifically designed to invoke innovation on behalf of the owner.

IMG_20180505_102735.jpg

MrCitroen proffered an exceptional solution to the thorny problem of introducing the new sparkplugs to their respective holes.

Step forth the 'angle of dangle' mod -

IMG_20180505_102831.jpg

a piece of silicone piping that makes seating the sparkplugs a doddle.

With them in, we reconnected the HT leads, noting that the original Bougicords looked a bit well worn - I'm considering getting a new set, and have some secondhand known good ones present as a backup just now.

Next we moved on to check the wee fuel filter in the carb - a 14mm bolt winds out to reveal a tiny little filter.

IMG_20180505_103419.jpg

IMG_20180505_103449.jpg

This looked reasonable, so we cleaned it up and refitted.

We gave the carb a dousing in cleaner, and with the car idling, you could hear it start to clear.

Eventually we had it idling on all 4 after a fashion, and it was time to move onto the next piece of the puzzle.

Even though the BMW e30s have distributors and rotor arms, I've never had to set the ignition timing on one.

And the last time I faffed with a dizzy was likely on my parent's VW type 2 (aged about 13).

Time for a crash course then.

First up, we had a look at the dwell - it should be between 55-59 degrees (approx a 15thou feeler gauge). My car was showing 70 degrees.

Time to remove the distributor to adjust the points then.

We started by noting the position of the marks on the body.

These had been made by a previous owner - we didn't know what they meant but a reference pic is always useful!.

IMG_20180505_105726.jpg

Access is bloody tight with inner wing and bulkhead restricting both backwards and sidewards movement.

We took the distributor cap off firstly to increase the available space.

IMG_20180505_111547.jpg

Again, this is hardly in its first flush of youth, although the contacts looked servicable.

Next up was taking the distributor out. There are two 14mm nuts that hold the body into the engine. The top one sits in a slotted hole,to allow for advancing and regarding the ignition timing (much like n alternator tensioner may work).

We got the distributor off and were able to identify that we had the glory of cassette points to deal with.

IMG_20180505_110150.jpg

IMG_20180505_110610.jpg

The small silver thumbwheel is turned (either with a screwdriver or a 3mm Allen bit) to open/close the points as required. A couple of attempts and checking got us to the magic 15 thou, and we put it back together.

Getting the distributor and cap back in place was a fiddly job, so we took it in turns - working until we got grumpy then swapping!

With it all back in place, we tried starting it, only to be met with no spark.

Mild panic ensued with much multimeter action and a distinct lack of 12v at the coil - odd given that we hadn't touched it!

Methodical retracing of steps plus some problem solving showed us the fault lay on the ballast resistor. Eventually, we got the correct combination of connections to have her burst into life!

Relieved, I set to replacing the missing hotspot pipe. MrCitroen had most generously donated a spare pipe he had.

Firstly, it was trial fitted to check for sealing at the top end - all looked very positive

Then it was time to attend to the obvious issues with it.. there were 2 holes in it.

In a harking back to the Morris Oxford, it was time to crack out the welder!

Holes filled and ground down a touch, it was time to refit it (3x 11mm bolts at the top, 1x14mm nut/bolt on the clamp at the bottom.)

We got the engine wholly back together and went out on a test drive.

Starting was nice and positive, and the idle was much better.

On the open road, it's significantly quieter, and I'm now starting to see where these boxer 4 engines get their 'turbine' reputation from - ramp up the Revs and they get really smooth:)

I think there's still some tweaking to be done with timing, as there is the occasional hesitation, but it's a much nicer drive. Overall I'm very pleased!

A big thanks to MrCitroen for All his help, knowledge and parts!

Have a picture of my GSA and his GS Pallas side by side.

Lastly, I took her out for a shakedown run and to get petrol as she has many miles to cover over the next two days..

She looks good in the sun!

Almost a salmon pink colour in the sun.
F*ck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside,
F*ck your Subaru, I have a horse outside.
And f*ck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside,
If you're lookin' for a ride, I've got a horse outside
