Got the TZD back

Post by Mothman » Sun Apr 29, 2012 3:41 pm

Got the TZD back from Malcolm today, head gasket sorted, timing belt done and water pump replaced along with the clutch and sundry other items.
He did a damned good job, i would recommend him to anyone.
A few other things to sort and i hope she will make a good motor. Going to need a TD bonnet though as the one fitted isnt the right one.
Will now really have to consider selling the n/a diesel Estate.
I would like to thank Malcolm[Citronut] for all his hard work and expertise in sorting her. He certainly knows his Citroens.

Why is a TD bonnet any different? There are short nose and long nose, the TD should have long nose like the one in your pic. Metal or GRP - luck of the draw on an L reg :lol:

Its the ducting underneath the bonnet thats different and i thought it would be easier to replace the bonnet completely with the correct type rather than try and find the said ducting etc. It has a bonnet that probably came off an n/a diesel.

Cheers Vince,

thanks for your kind words, yes, Malcolm certainly knows his stuff, just watching him put all the air ducting back together was like watching a masterclass!! Ive certainly learned a lot from him and a great guy too.

She is pretty fast, compared with the TGD which is a bit of a slug. Gets to to a good speed but just takes a while getting there.
