Incroyable! Trés expensive! Je voudrais que vous achetez le utilisé pour moi. Merci. Merci. Merci.

 

As much as I'd like a new one, I'm certainly not going to spend that much! Thank you very much for buying the used one for me. It will blend in well with the rest of my van.

Hello, here are two small pictures of a 1955 renault juvaqutre that we have in the family.
normally we will restore it in 3 years, it was the old van of the baker of the neighboring village :)
my father and my uncle had bought it at the time when he was 20 years old, they were driving 1 year with and then she was staying for more than 20 years stopping in a garage.
we are going to restart it in a few years :)

hello, yes when the restoration will start I will put it on the forum;).
but this will work out in about 3 years, first I have to finish my buick, and after that you have to restore a Peugeot 205 gti 1984 from my father.
and then its will be the turn of the juvaquattre :)

My little brother (pictured) and I pulled the engine Monday to replace the leaking crankshaft seals. We would have had it back in quickly except the vendor I purchased the seals from accidently sent me the wrong rear seal. Anyway, I took the extra time to clean up the mess from the old seals and should have the engine back in by the weekend. The front seal was only leaking a small amount but decided to change it anyway. Also thoroughly cleaned out the generator housing. Maybe that will help solve the lack-of-charging problem I have. I am awaiting the voltage regulator that sebastienbuick was kind enough to obtain for me. Having fun!

Great day for the mail! The correct rear seal arrived and the voltage regulator from Sebastienbuick did too! Busy days ahead so I'm not sure when I'll be able to work on the 2cv, but hopefully soon.

I have successfully installed the crankshaft seals, cleaned up the mess from the old leaking seals, adjusted the valves, and fixed a couple other small things. The van is running better and doesn't leak all over the garage floor.

 

I installed the voltage regulator from sebastienbuick, but unfortunately, it still isn't charging. I guess the next step is to take the generator components to a specialist and get them checked.

 

Question: Could anyone tell me how to get the field coils of the generator out of the engine? I'm guessing the case that they're attached to must come out, but I don't want to risk damaging something trying to remove it incorrectly. Any advice would be appreciated.

hello, I see that you have to work well;).
his will be the generator that does not work? : /
did you have pictures of the generator to see the assembly?
I will ask on the other forum where I am to have more answers.
it's sad that it still does not work for the battery charge: /.
I keep you informed when I have an answer

Thank you sebastienbuick. I will provide this information to the person who will check the components of my generator once I figure out how to get the field coils out. There's been too much going on for me to get any garage time!

I have driven it and it runs great. There has been too much going on lately and that has kept me out of the garage! Also, my desire to work on cars goes down with the temperature. Not much work in the garage when winter sets in. Have you had much time with your Buick?

As the season for outside car work ends, I was getting ready to store my toys for the winter. However, we had a nice sunny day so my wife and I went out to lunch in the 2cv one more time before winter storage. Great day!

Here's one being used to promote a business. Looks like it could truck a lot of weight the way it is jacked up in the rear.

 

At least with my older, worn suspension, that extra lift in the back disappears pretty quickly with a load.
