Update on this topic for all who may be interested.

Just as I had managed to source all the parts I required (not actually purchased but identified) my old man, completely out of the blue, informed me not to bother. He has decided that due to his age he wouldn't be driving much in the future and it's not worth all the effort. He has an auto Omega that he uses as his hack so the BX will become a 2nd car. The BX apparently will be mine one day (not sure how I feel about that?) and I'd want to convert it back to a manual. Who wants to drive a non turbo D 1.9 BX auto? They're slow enough in manual setup!

I think he feels a tad guilty about asking me to get involved in another project on top of my current house renovation, DS rebuild, Cobra ongoing development, BX GTi 4x4 renovation and a few paid jobs to boot!

So may I thank all of you for your advice and offer of parts over the past few months. I wish you all well 'til the next time.
Thanks.

I think he's being extremely considerate - and I say that as someone who took a ZX Avantage 1.9D NA Auto from brand new to 94k miles in just under 3 years, as a runabout company car, London and South-East. Next one was a 1.8i Xantia auto...
