    Default dauphine motor wanted

    My friend in India after a beautiful restoration job on A DS21 EFI has come unstuck with a Renault Dauphine. He bought two, one to restore and the other for spares. It looks good and handles well after some advice from here but the motor is a dog. It has been bastardised over the years with non standard pistons etc and is too difficult so far from spares to rebuild. Does anyone have a Dauphine motor in running order or relatively easy to restore?
    I can arrange the shipping.

    All of the parts would be available at Caravelle Imports in Melbourne at good prices, an I would guess Ken would send goods to India, or anywhere else after the monies were paid. Phone 03 989 09061

    He has 850cc piston and sleeve kits, valves bearings, gaskets and anything else for these engines. Someone from this forum would be able to supply a head. If not, I do know where there are 20 or more heads for these engines.How has the motor been damaged?

    I do know a three people with spare G heads as well as having them on their cars. I can only ask. Standard Dauphine heads are much more common and less sought after. One friend has dozens of Dauphine, R4 and 4CV heads in a rack. Perhaps talk to the fellow from South Aus that bought 3 Gordinis from Tassie that is on here from time to time. Don't remember his name.
