Citroën BX - Building the Cylinder Head

With all the cylinder head parts cleaned and camshafts polished, I could begin the therapeutic process of building the cylinder head.

In my mind, the A-post is straight forward and just needs a tonne of measuring.

But I'm guessing it won't be that easy :D

CITROËN BX – SPEAKERS AND AMPLIFIER UPGRADE

Taking a little break from the XPO restoration, I've gone just a little bit overboard with upgrade the sound system with Clarion speakers.

New front door speakers, parcel shelf speakers, and the biggest amp I've ever seen.

Citroën BX - XPO - A Crank For The D6C Engine

In March I found a crank journal measuring undersize, creating quite a quandary. In this article, I'll try to share my learning, ups, and downs, with you.

Citroën BX – XPO – Building The Mi16 Bottom End

A month since building the cylinder, I had to get on with building the bottom end. A few parts to clean and put together. How hard can it be? It should be plain sailing unless I do something really stupid.

Citroën BX – XPO – Building The Mi16 Bottom End Continued

When I last wrote about the rebuild of the engine for XPO, the project was at a bit of a low point. A host of things were absorbing my "free time". Then when I did get a moment, it wasn't exactly plain sailing. Admittedly snapping the piston rings was a mistake entirely of my own doing. But new rings have arrived, sort of, let the building of the bottom end commence!
