    Default NOS parts for Dacia / R12 : new arrivals

    Hi folks. Trying to grab a few things in Romania, as the main factories / wholesellers have stopped production some years ago and they need to clear space (mainly for actual Dacia models).
    Plz use this link, the list will be updated hopefully next week. Happy Xmas everyone.

    Hi Jean-Yves, long time no see.

    Is the final drive/crwonwheel pair for the french 365 boxes or the Romanian 365?

    I am asking because the romanian 365 had a small crownwheel like the 395/352/etc g'boxes, not the larger, beefier french 365 crown.

    Will check, as normally no 365 type gearboxes are mentionned in the Dacia technicals I have. The lot came from the period racing department of Dacia, thus the guys in charge of the french built R12G entered in romanian rallyes.

    Dacia has made five speed 'boxes labelled 365 and 395 but both had the smaller crownwheel. The ratios were similar to the french boxes, but there was more choice I think. I never managed to find a box with the close ratios of the french 365 (R12G), but I know they exist. At some point they also changed from the early driveshaft seal to the later outdrive seal (shorter driveshafts).

    Who knows? Maybe the racing department had some proper 365 parts shipped from France or maybe they made some in house. Would be interesting to find out. Commercially available cars however never had the large crownwheel.

    Thanx for the info. It's true that we found in the same lot some gears identical to the R12G competition ones (close ratios). I've measured the crown diameter, it's 170 mm, compared to the 353-20 (1600S) crownwhich is 160 mm. Unfortunately I don't have an original 365 to compare.

    That diameter won't tell you anything. It's all the same for the boxes we're talking about otherwise you would need a physically larger casing to fit the c/wheel in and it would also mess with the pinion protrusion so the 365 casing would need to be very specific/especially machined to accommodate a physically larger c/wheel. The final drive would be sent back and that would move the entire secondary shaft with its bearings and all, which in turn would move the primary and so on.

    What you need to check is the diameter between two opposing holes for the satellite carrier centre to centre. French R12G 365 is about 92mm, "normal" 352/similar crown is about 88mm. Even with a very approximate measure, you will see a clear difference (i.e. one is less than 90mm, one is more).

    As far as I know Dacia never made the four satellite carriers even for their 365 (or any other) boxes.

    353 is a R8/G? box, right? Or some sort of rear engined Renault. Those boxes all had smaller c/wheel. I remember Frans had to machine his 353 casing to fit the larger R16 c/wheel (which I guess is the same size as the "normal" 352 diff).

    Nah, I just have a few diffs here I can compare.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    I have a couple of parcels coming with DHL from Germany and I can see they're in Oz already. Not sure how long customs here are going to hold them.

    True, France/Belgium may be a different story.

    Thanks for commentary re postage - but do we have an opinion of the quality/suitability of the kit? Sorry - I don't know Jean Yves who I assume did the original post - is this coming with some recommendation - or did he just alert us to the offer?

    He's been supplying Renault parts for a long time. Focused on Alpine/Gordini parts.
