    Larry claims around miles per gallon fuel economy, with a comfortable cruising speed of 65 miles per hour — no small feat for a car originally designed around a 17 horsepower engine. It was a torturous ride. Exterior walls are formed by simply laying down rough-sawn boards with a length equal to the desired wall height then nailing another layer perpendicular to the first layer. In the 20 odd years spent as a mechanic, all the 4 stroke engines I worked on ran in the same direction. The carb should be a Solex 28IBT.

R4 vs Dauphine Thread starter Shielob Start date Oct 11, Shielob Enthusiast Oct 11, Looking for some help here. I have just bought a Dauphine that has been fitted with a R4 Engine. Im told this now has 3 reverse gears and 1 forward: So have to asume the R4 engine runs the other way or that somone has put the dif in the Dauphine in the wrong way round if you can do this.

    Anybody have any info on this subject - would be most greatful. Steve Hennessey Moderator Oct 11, Firstly, does the car run and are you able to test out the gearbox?

    I can see no problem fitting a R4 engine to a Dauphine gearbox, but did the person fit the R4 gearbox as well. I'm not sure if the gearboxes are similar, but whether the unit is fitted in the front or the rear should make no difference to the forward motion. As to whether the engine runs backwards is totally beyond me. The only engine that will run backwards is a 2 stroke.

    Regarding the diff, it may be possible to reverse it, but why would anybody want to? Maybe someone else has more experience of Dauphins than me, but my thinking is that the original Dauphine engine and the R4 engine were very similar.

    R4 engine to a Dauphine gearbox I have not taken delivery of the car so I cant say for sure but the bloke I am getting it from says there are 3 reverse and 1 forward gear. It may be that the gear selector is badly worn and so he is not managing to select the forwards correctly. I was just wondering wheter the original Dauphin engine did something really wierd like running counter clockwise.

    I have no knowledge of these cars at the moment but think I am about to learn quite quickley!!!! I think the later cars had 4 speed boxes which seems to suggest they were the same as the R4. Mr Jelly Enthusiast Oct 11, Don't know a great deal about Dauphines other than to say there is nothing astonishing about the original engine.

    It's fairly simple stuff. As to why it runs with four reverse gears and one forward is anybodies guess. I think your best bet would be to contact www. Good luck with it, I have a feeling you might need a bit of luck! I suggest you take delivery of the car first and then try and work out what's amiss.

    I went down the garage and looked at my old R4 GTL gearbox and the diff can be reversed. It sounds as if the previous owner of your Dauphine has some suspect mechanical abilities. By all means join the Renault Classic Car Club, but they don't have a forum to discuss this type of problem yet.

    Thanks for the input - I should get the car towards the end of the week so I can update you. I'm getting nervous about the amount of LUCK that people are wishing me!!!! Shielob Enthusiast Oct 22, Took delivery of the car on wednesday and it actually started although it ran like a diesel.
