Rocker clearance Citroen BX14RE, engine 150Y/XY6B

Post by oucham »

Dear friends.

I need the values for rocker clearance for my engine. The Haynes book for my car lists the values only for the engines 150A and 150C. My engine is called 150Y (nordic version?).

The car is a Citroen BX14RE, engine 150Y which is also called XY6B.

The previous car owner said he set the clearances, but the engine is still making a ticking noise. He followed the values given in Haynes book.

Could anyone tell me where to find the values, or possibly know the values and can tell me them.

The same engine is found in the following cars, so if anyone that owns Haynes book for these models could take a photo of clearance values and post it here:
Peugeot 104S/ZS 1,3 engine XY6B (1360/53)
Talbot Samba GLS/Cabriolet 1,4 engine 5K2 (XY6B) (1360/53)

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

From memory. 0008 and. 0012 inlet/exhaust don't quote me on this, it may not be the valve clearances the 150 engines can wear on the camshafts and followers causing a rattle at the top end.

Thank you for your reply.
Do you know if the clearance are the same for all 150 engines?
