Short video from our workshop... After some repairs done on this AMI 8 from 1976 we had to adjust carburettor. For this task we use one of our vintage tool from 70´s. It is original ISKRA instrument for measuring CO (Exhaust gas indicator) . In fact, this ISKRA Exhaust gas indicator is one of our latest find for our CIMOS archive. It was used in CIMOS factory on production line as "last check" tool before Citroens left CIMOS factory to be delivered to buyers.
With this tool we can set right mixture of gas/air and lower consumpion ...
I've always wanted to try this... cranking car with rope !
Idea came from some old newspaper article from 60` ... How to crank your car when battery is flat and you dont have anyone to help push start your car... ? With Citroën you can crank it with original crank handle... but sometimes it doesnt work that way... many reasons why... So, you just lift left front wheel, put something in front of right wheel, contact, push accelerator pedal twice to spray some gasoline into engine, pull cold start knob, wrap the rope around the wheel 3 times and ... PULL !!!
It will start !
And don't forget...
