    Hi Just wondering if you could possibly give me some pointers on the fitting of a 1397 Virage motor into a 1964 R8 I have fitted a late model bell housing from a 1971 R10, not sure what imput shaft or clutch to use etc. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks, Greg

    You’d do better posting a thread in the Renault forum, but I believe you need an input shaft from a suitable 12 - the splines of which need to suit the driven plate; a 1.4 clutch fork and thrust bearing.

    Other unrelated things to consider. A set of the side plates that suit the block; the temp sender will now be on the front of the engine under the parcel shelf and there won’t be much room so clearance can be a problem. You’ll also need to work out what you do with either a generator or if you are running an alternator. I usually use the R12 bracket and mount the alternator off the head on the top RHS (as you look from the rear of the car. This also means you have to re-route the heater lines to the front. I use a hybrid setup running an R12 water pump backing plate with an R8/10 pump. This means one outlet on the r12 plate needs blanking (underneath) and the line running over the top of the alternator (for the heater) need to be insulated to avoid rubbing damage - I use an oversized bit of clear hose from Clark Rubber and run the “tube inside a tube”

    The R12 fuel pump usually has a return line, so your choice is to run a return hose to a barb mounted into the side of the fuel filler pipe so excess dribbles back in, replace with your R8 pump; or blank it off and run and electric pump. Replacing it with an R8 pump sounds simple, but may in fact be taking the hard road. You could make up a simple blanking plate and go electric quicker than the retro installs.
