    Firstly, is it a stock installation? Not an R12 engined hybrid that may have custom hoses and odd (non-R10) waterpump?

    As always, try the usual suspects like French Connection or Caravelle to see what is around. Then get on the phone to try your other fave places, like Repco to see if they indeed do have the desired parts available or to order.

    The thermostat should be a 73-74 degree version rather than a 84 degree version, the stock R10 radiator hoses are different from an R12.

    I was able to buy most of the things you mentioned from ebay for my round eyed 10. Don't just look at the English speaking countries.
    There is also Jacques Rear Engine Renault Parts in the US

    Good luck with it, they are a beauty the round eyed 10, great to see another on the road.
