Re: B14 same as Renault 4/5?

Thanks dude, appreciated - I it might actually end up easier sourcing a new (old) engine at this rate!

Re: B14 same as Renault 4/5?

Found a picture of Anjo's turbo setup. Bolt pattern from this angle at least seems good? http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b192/levibaantjer/DSC00631Large.jpg I'm also thinking that this engine spins the wrong way to my 850cc. Dang, back to square one. Sorry to waste your times! If any Renault geeks...

B14 same as Renault 4/5?

Hello chaps, I'm currently restoring a Renault 4 but the engine is junk. Sourcing a Renault 4/5 engine is proving expensive but I've got a question google can't seem to answer: Is the B14 the same as the early Renault 5 engine (and therefore, the 4)? IE would it bolt directly up to the renault 4 tra...

How much for the pair with postage mate?
£35 inc postage sound fair?

Also, anyone who is going to RRG next weekend, I will be there if you want to pick up some bits and pieces.

340 Diff, MK2 rear clusters, headlight glass, indicators FS

Anyone want a spare 340 diff? Surplus to requirements now. It's unmolested and unabused. Dai sold it to be originally as I was going to repair the 360 with it, got a 360 box/diff instead. If I've met you before, I might even let you have it for free :wink: Also got 3 rear Mk2 clusters in great condi...

Re: Format unpopular?

Something similar was posted on RR a few days ago. Facebook and other social media is making posting pictures and discussing things much easier than the forums of old. Unfortunately, (and this isn't a dig) if you've never had to make the effort to learn something new BEFORE posting the thing you wan...

Re: pair of dogdish flywheels - wanted!

AFAIK they don't need to be turbos, just any 240/740/940 with a lambda sensor but not the M90 gearbox. If you find some let me know because I need 2 myself. Actually, are either of those DMFs in near perfect shape? I might like one for my 945 seeing as a solid one is hard to get. That clears things...

Re: 1.7 seizing up?

Nah, not sure why that's the case as mine would come on after I switched off. But cooling the rad while the car has stopped pumping the water round is a bit pointless tbh. It just does it because the temperature raises slightly as the you've just pulled in somewhere and the airflow has stopped.

Re: 1.7 seizing up?

Check the positive battery cable, my 1.7 had this issue where the resistance of the cable would increase when hot - failing to start the engine. Leave to cool and she fired right up.

Re: back door

I can't remember which company took over Hadrians but weren't they still selling the old stock not that long ago? I do remember you had to phone them though.
