Newbie from Australia
#1
Hi everyone,
 I'm David ( ausmagic ) from Australia where the crows fly backwards looking for a water hole.

I'm older than most but younger than some.

I just bought a 2000 Berlingo for $300 just for something o do.

She's got a blown head gasket and dings in every panel, so I will probably have 6 months of steady work.
So far I have shaved the head $ 80 and new head Gasket $100. I also paid $20 for a 
downloadable repair manual from EMANUALONLINE.COM and they appear to be a scam as they've given 
me all sorts of excuses as to why I can't download it.

Any help regarding how to set up the head bolt torque,  timing and tappets would be appreciated.

Cheers from down under.  David

Sorry to hear that mate, I gave my manual away when I sold my old Berlingo.
Hopefully someone will have one to hand.

Thanks Jed, I have never been on a forum before, and I have never seen the inside of a citroen before. 

The " computer " I was taught on as a kid was called a slate and we wrote on it with a piece of chalk
and the nearest thing to a citroen was a horse and cart.

I am probably going to make a lot of mistakes on your forum, so please  EVERYONE HELP ME with your forum advice.

I got the Berlingo motor running. It runs well but has a lot of tappet noise because I can't find the specs anywhere,
but at least I can move it in and out of the little woman's garage to keep the peace.

Till next time , from down under, where the crows fly backwards,  Ausmagic

Hi David and welcome.
Can I suggest you post some details, eg. engine type and size etc. I'm sure the guys will soon ferret out the info you're after !
Good luck with the project !

Thanks DaveH,
I finally got excited enough to bash the panels in the old girl and it was a lot easier than I thought.
It had a line of bad dings on both of the side flat ( sign ) panels that looked like it would take a month to beat out, but
the insides of all the rear panels are covered with industrial carpet, ( probably original ) so I left the carpet on and it made the job really easy.
I have the same sort of damage in a Toyota van that I want to get rid of, so I am going to glue some carpet to the inside to see how it goes.
I will follow your advice and post a description of every thing that I can find. The trouble is, I don't really know what I have. Citroens have always been a bit of an oddity in AUS. and new ones are just starting to sell very well.

Thanks, David
