No I didn't know there was any difference to be honest. I have bought one from tim1casa on here that originally was meant for a Ransome Mower. He assures me that he has one of these in his F4 already and there was some swapping of parts over but the rest was pretty straightforward. Does anyone know more ?If you've got an F4 van some were 845 3 bearing type and some 1108
Interchangeable not simple as loads of difference between the two setups
Maybe you knew this already
Jeepman I have no engine but maybe the unsuitable engine would be OK for a Gtl ? See my PMEngine turns WRONG way I'm afraid, I only saw the above warning AFTER I had bought it. My current engine turns clockwise both engine AND distributor the replacement I bought turns the opposite. So has ANYONE got the correct engine for a French F4 please ?
Unsure to be honest although someone has shown an interest after seeing pictures so it may not end its days as a boat anchorHi Jeepman,
Does the engine number say 850 on the Spanish engine?
Then it's a FASA build Cleon engine with a displacement of 1037 cc. And 42 hp.
It was specially made for the Spanish R5 GTL and R7
You can sell it to any GTL owner who wants some more power in his R4
Thanks that would be very kind of you, yesterday I swapped the carb for one I bought (wrong) the car runs exactly the sameHi, sorry to hear about the trouble your having, i know it can be tedious when you can't find the problem my son's F6 (which was mine) had a similar one and that was the carb gasket had perished and sucking air so would not run at low speeds but fine when driving but runs fine now :-)
I'm not far away from you so if you want i could pop over sometime and have a look ?
I will TRY and identify the points, rotor arm and distributor cap by posting a picture on here later hopefully someone may know what they are and then I can order some. You are more than welcome to come over anytimePatients is a virtue, i can pop over at the weekend if you would like ?
