Hi guys ,new to the forum,have just purchased a Renault 4. 4x4 simpar ,won't get it home until New year,was wondering what the lever on the inner sill was for if the dash lever (not the gear lever ) is to operate the four wheel drive system?
Thank you all for your replies won't get the beast until after the new year will keep updating with pictures, I restore old vehicles and interesting stuff for a living but this is for myself. I adore the 4 and to find a 4x4 is a bonus ,let the adventures begin
I had thoughts about this vehicle when it was in France. Would be very interested to read what you are doing with it. Robert [harbourseal] is an 'expert' on Sinpars. A picture tells a 1000 words too.
Good luck with all the work that lays ahead for you.
Now for the good news. You’ve got the faster version. Gear ratio in the back diff is 8x33. Don’t expect hair raising speeds. But on the road it will keep up with most oap’s But it is a little weaker in terrain.
