zx 16v rocker cover

Post by benj » 15 Dec 2004, 01:34

hai all,
desperatly after a 2.0 zx 16v rocker cover, after fully rebuilding my engine i have somehowmanaged to chipthe corner of mine off, had the engine running perfect but cant take the car for a run as the rocker cover is leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold!! reall annoying after not having driven the car for two years!!
anyone know where i could get hold of one? i already know the 1.9 mi16 one wont fit and the later 2.0 16v engines have a different design... do citroen sell them? if so anyone know how much? any avdvice appreciated..
cheers

Yep ive got mine which is off the car, I think some of the paints flaked off but the cover itself should be at least 100% compelte, will take a photo tommorow and upload it for you.
So what was the problem with yours, I remember it didnt run right and you tried all sorts and thought about selling it at one point?

hmm just realised you mean the entire rocker cover, not just the bit that covers the ignition modules and plugs on the 16v? Well still got mine, will take photo and can remove it on friday before it goes to the breakers if youre interested

yes yes very interested!!! what other bits do youhave? i need the plastic intake thingy that joints the throttle housing, I traced my problem down to a cracked vacuum module housing you know that little cylinder that is placed on the right hand side of the head with vacuum tubes connecting to it. how come your not selling the engine?
I am desperate for the rockercover so if you could get it off and send it first class parcel asap!!! I can pay you direct online if you have a lloydstsb account I can credit? need to get this car on the road before christmas so please get back, my mobile number is 00 33 677029407 (it is a french one, i live there now) but you can text it same as uk one Im in the uk till the 27th, cheers

not selling the engine because it burnt oil and mayonaised a fair bit and dont want the hassle of removing it from the car. The plastic intake thingy, you mean the one that goes onto the throttle housing and the other end onto the air filter box and in the middle of it, it has 2 other breather pipes that plug into it?
I can remove them on friday when I have the day off and post them then. No online banking so will need a cheque from you, will email you address etc.
