My brother will be in town the 2nd of October and we're going to change the oil seals on the engine. Hopefully, it won't be too hard.

Vous êtes fantastique! If the regulator is exactly the same as mine and has never been used, it would be great if you did this for me. I will certainly pay all your expenses for getting this to me. Mercie pour l'information pour les ajustements aussie. Trés bien!

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 :)

J'aime ça! I have never seen one of these before. It looks to be in great condition. I hope you start a new topic when the restoration begins!

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!

hello zipdang, nice work!
it's a good thing to change the joints;), have you order another joint since it was not the right one?
The best of wishes for the future

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.

hello, here is good news! :)
you received the regulator if I understood correctly? :)
I wish you a good assembly ;)

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

Here's a photo of the front of the generator after I cleaned it up. I have had the armature out but am unsure how to remove the field coils.
