    Default information on engine

    information on engine-img_0230.jpginformation on engine-img_0231.jpginformation on engine-img_0232.jpgI have in my possession renault engine that I know nothing much about.
    It was purchased for me by members of my family when I purchased my R8 some years ago in case I could use some parts from it but there seems to be not much compatibility.
    The radiator fan is on the transmission end of the block and it will crank over quite happily on the starter but while there is a inlet manifold there is no carburettor.

    The engine number is 9806846 as seen on the block

    I am interested in selling it but I do not know what it would have been fitted to. It does have a (rusted) chrome rocker cover with a G on it. Can someone please identify it from this information: It is in Perth WA.

    Regards

    A handwritten G style? Take a look at Gordini engine restoration.

    Simon should be able to tell us the name of the assembler, his mothers maiden name, TFN and what colour hair he has.

    Perhaps Georges would be more correct, instead of George?

    So for the benefit of the OP and the rest of those who don't know, is that a Dauphine gordini engine?

    I'm told that the standard aluminium plate that should be riveted on the side of the engine should identify it as a Type 670 if it is a Dauphine G engine. I can't see the plate on the photograph.

    There's something really odd about the oil filler cap.

    Looks like someone has tried to remove it with a set of vice-grips and all the edges have broken away.

    The engine number is in an odd spot.

    I agree. It’s in the wrong place.
    Could that be the result of re-registration?
    The ID plate is no longer there.
    So maybe it’s a state government number to fill in that gap in the paperwork.
    I’ve had to do that in Victoria (about 1975) when I bought a new engine.(for a Morris Minor).

    On the other hand I have a car that was registered in Qld where the engine number is officially recorded as “invisible”

    My R17TS had the original number X'ed out as it was too short and a new number stamped on starting with N xxxxxx ending in a P and I was informed that was stamped by Nsw Police. The real number should have been 844-12-xxx instead the factory only stamped xxx

    Just to be clear for 'Wolster', we are looking for an aluminium plate on the side of the block underneath the fuel pump, right? My understanding is that 670 covers DG and Floride engines. It will be 670-"a number".

    Very common for NSW police to restamp back in the 70’s. For a variety of reasons including the one stated by one of the posters regarding buying an unstamped crate engine from the factory. Also for stolen and recovered engines also from memory - so it took the original number off the system.

    Understandable, there are a lot of crooks down that way after all.

    OK, from the pics it is a late Dauphine or early R4 block, the block is missing the identification tag with the stamped number being bogus - perhaps influenced by a part number casting. Beyond that, it is a pig in a bag - the fancy extractors could be hiding 1063 or 1093 internals, or better, or nothing.

    Simon, are you saying it is NOT DG or that we can't tell?

    What would we look for internally, should we pull it down to check? If a very late block it is suitable for a 903 cc sleeve kit....

    Maybe the extractors are worth more that the rest?

    From the pics, it can't be told (by me) that it is either an R4 or Dauphine block.

    The late Dauphine and Dauphine G, and for that matter the late 750, blocks are identical. So all would suit a 904 kit, if the liner seats have not corroded.
