Acav system now in full working order after spending £50 on a new diaphragm - was very careful fitting it as too much pressure can snap the nipple so dipped the rubber pipe in boiling water first - didnt dare push on fully but got it on half way and it works - result is more pulling power low down and seems to idle better 8-) next thing to sort is bouncing speedo but the guy at croxdale citroen says it has the more modern transmitter thingy rather than a cable - is this right ?? anyone ??

He's possibly right Martin , my 1992 volcane was a cable speedo and was a 20 second job to disconnect .
