Hoping someone can suggest areas to look at with my newly converted 172 turbo.
Long story short, the engine bent the intake valves a year ago so I decided to rebuild the head, and reinstalled prior to doing the turbo conversion.
New valves were professionally fitted and seated with a...
I think I know the answer, but after confirmation.
Just reinstalled my engine after a turbo conversion and on start up, it's running rough as a badgers arse, and after a little drive it feels very much like its running on 3 cylinders.
So after a bit of headscratching and looking, I spotted no.4...
I've been after a mk1 172 fuel pump assembly for my turbo conversion and think I may have found one but hoping someone can confirm, as the ad is a bit generic:
Renault Clio Sport 172/182 2001-2006 Fuel Pump 8200159254

I need to replace all my followers and having looked on Trodo's website, they have INA finger followers but for the engine code CBOM which I believe is the phase one engine.
They're quoting (amongst many others) as fitting these F4R engines. One is the 182 and the other a phase 1 172

I duly replaced the engine with the intention of 'doing something' with the broken engine. Until now its just sat in my garage, but now I've got the urge to...
I know this has been done a fair bit but...
Fitted a new Febi topmount kit with the newer version combined nut/spacer, and now the top hats are sitting really a lot higher than I'd have thought was right.
Everything has been fitted in the correct order and the bearings are the right way round...
Anyone seen this happen to cam followers before? Four of the followers on the intake side failed and left me stranded on the M1 a few weeks ago.
I was planning on sorting this out and potentially building a boosted engine, but I'm unsure if this would have led to any other damage.
Hi all, my first post as I've been unable to find anything here which answers the problems I'm having.
I've acquired an '03 172 that is in need of a little bit of love but has generally been running ok until yesterday.
The engine management light has been flashing on and off for a week but is...
