    This coming saturday, I will try again starting the engine...(Now I have a workshop manual, it helps:)) Just wanted to check the approach : Since it did not start at the turn of the key, I plan to connect the battery with jump leads directly on to the starter motor to bypass the solenoid.

    The horn on this car delivers only the discreet sound whatever the switch position. I will change this with one like this from a Citroën DS to Demetris point!

    Well spotted!:oops: Probably of secondary concern right now but definitely requires changing if only I can find one at some point

    Good idea, thanks! Just to be clear on the polarity question : neither solenoid nor starter motor are polarized, right? In other words, If I get it wrong on polarity, this would not prevent starting the engine ("only" the dynamo may not like it as I understand it)

    Oops, I meant "town and country" (must be because I live in town...)

    Same here! I tried switching the "home and country" lever but this makes no difference to the horn sound :confused:

    Hello Demetris. Yes that's what I'll do, but I need someone with me for this which I did not have yesterday :( I was actually thinking of testing power on the starter motor contacts, but starting with the solenoid is best.

    Hello, some news in the new year : 1. steering box and ball joints : managed to split the ball joints at both ends but the other one is definitely not accessible with the fork model (mr task is right!!). I wonder if there is chance to get away with this ball joint by unscrewing the linkage next...

    Hi Chris Thanks for the proposal. Would you like to let me know the details on a PM? (and also keen on the airbox...)

    Not yet removed alas.... I wonder if I have to remove this main nut on the box in place to ease the removal from the ball joints

    I definitely need to procure a workshop manual and a parts manual.... I see most manuals for sale on internet are for 66 and later. Is it worth it or should I absolutely strive for "early models" manuals?

    Steering box unbolted Then the ball joints are stuck Replacement Box ready but first remove the one in place… Found this loose in the engine compartment beneath the Steeering Box, I suppose it’s a forgotten fixing bracket of some kind, looks like an adjustment screw, any ideas ?
