i recently layed my hands on a rebuilt F7R engine complete with gear box, clutch, ECU and all wires, water pump alternator and manafolds. but no driveshafts, engine mounts or catalic converter, or radiator. i have a 1998 1.6 8v and i was wondering if anyone knows the answers to any of the following questions:
1. will the drive shafts go from my original gear box to the new 1?
2. and how does the engine mounts go on i cant see the engine mounts currently on my tiny 1.6 engine and i can see the F7R engine has a top left side mount but my chasis doesnt seem to have a spot for the mount?
3. and im sure it will be ok but will the radiator from the old 1.6 engine be ok on the F7R or will it need a new radiator?
thanks :)

There's no reason why it should not fit - you seem to have it all.
As Renault fits the F7R D710 (2.0 16V IDE 147 bhp) on Meganes from 1996-1999 and I guess yours is from that period the only thing would be to make minor adjustments to the engine and gearbox suspension. The mounting bushes of both models are the same though.

In 1999, after the face lift, they replaced it with F4R 740/741 (2.0 16V 139 bhp) and F5R740 (2.0 16V IDE 140 bhp) but I think the engine mounts are the same. Never paid attention to gear box mountings though.

Still there are other issues to consider - the F7R is a bit heavier, so you might need to change the springs of the front suspension. And since I doubt you'll want to be be driving these 150 horsies slowly you'll need better brakes so you'll have to consider replacement of the disk brakes with a bigger diameter ones, probably of 280 mm.

That was your topic, right?

Here are the F3R mounting brackets and tightening torques:

And here are the F7R mounting brackets and torques:

The lower bracket (the right one on the diagram) is different so I guess I would be best just to try and find one otherwise you will have to try to mount it by welding additional mounting points on the engine frame.

*Sorry,but the images have been removed due to being copyright material.

I feel an explanation is needed so you understand we aren't being sticklers.

We appreciate your enthusiasm to help other members, but at the same time we have to abide by copyright laws. The forum does not have funds to fight a court case and this could in fact see the forum closed down.

I hope this gives you insight into the reasons the diagrams had to be deleted.
