gsf sells the green coolant .
you will never be able to clean the header tank as the plastic would
be stained after all those years .
if you are after a brand new one ,i do sell them on ebay . ... ksid=p3686

Do it yourself / droppy doorfix

thought it would be a good idea to do a little report about this
as i am doing it at the moment . please note all techniques used
here are my personal way of doing this and i am by no means a mechanic etc .
the car used in pictures is my renault 9 gtx but as far as i am concerned
its the same in all 5/11/19 and clios (mk1) with torx pins in door hinges.

as far as i understand ,the doors start dropping once the slit bushes and torx pins inside the doors wear over time .
to replace them you have to take the doors out .
i am not going to go too deep into taking doors out .
you simply unscrew the torx pins and pull them out as well
as the check strap pin in the middle of the door .
after unplugging the door loom ,the door comes out .
hardest part is to get them torx pins to budge , on my car 2 of the torx pins were rounded off ,
in the end i had to cut the hinges from the middle
with a very fine cutting disc and weld them back on afterwards .

once the door is out , you are looking at this .
a slit bush at the top of the hinge ,there also is another one at the bottom of the same hinge .
luckily where they are tapped in from top and bottom there is a tiny gap before they meet
which allows you to use something similar to the bit in
the pic to tap them out with a hammer

and the bottom one

all 4 bushes removed from both hinges

and a little clean with some paper dipped in thinners reveal the
crap (best to get some grease in there before fitting new bushes )

i will be fitting my bushes at a later date after the car is sprayed .
but here is a picture of the trial fit (not tapped all the way in )

Schakal - the engine is a C-type 1100 with four-speed box.

It mounts into the car differently to a 5, so I have a B14 engine from a Volvo 340 to refit all the GTT bits to. This has the mounts in the right place.

The problem is the gearbox. They're not that great with torque, so if I do a GTT engine, I can't go tuning it!

always wanted to do similar to what you are doing on
a r12 myself .I STILL DO !!!   :P

b14 would be the 1.4 engine i take it ?? a few people i know have fitted
f type renault engines to volvo 340 and 360 series cars using volvo boxes
due to the way engine is mounted(c type renault engines will mate the same boxes ) . this could be the way to go for you .
again i have not looked well into this as yet but you might be
able to use a box from a fuego/18 turbo may be even a 21 turbo to take
the extra torque .
