What are you planning for the motor?
Just make sure what you label the wires with does not rub off when touched with hands covered in diesel. Dont ask how I know.

Used Renault Engine RC8D

As to what I will be doing with the old (Renault) engine. Since it is still a working engine with all parts as well as some spare belts and an impeller, control panel and engine harness, I plan on selling it as a complete unit. But not until I have verified everything between the two engines. I have the luxury of being able to use the shop at work as well as the offered assistance of some of the machinists. The Renault engine as I indicated is a running engine. It starts easily, but with no available spare parts I am repowering while I have the opportunity to do so. I also want a more reliable engine with additional power (going from 8 Hp to 13 Hp) for cruising. So if you are in the market for a used Renault RC8D engine, let me know….
