rc8d renault

I am having having problems with the clutch engaging (first it was the reverse but now forward is having problems as well). Before working on it, I would like to know if source for parts. Any suggestions? (would also like to change the impeller). This engine is installed in a 1981 Hunter 28'.

Mike,
I saw at least two ealier posts which had the parts you're looking for.
I do have a source for parts in the UK, but they'll be expensive due to the exchange rate of dollars to euros and...they're expensive to begine with.
Try contacting me directly at TFKEEFE at comcast.net. That way I can send you links I have.

RC8D Parts

Hi, my name is Tim. I'm a marine mechanic in Canada. One of my clients came to me with a renault RC8D marine engine. The transmisson is locked up and I need to rebuld it. While I'm working on it I thought about doing the rest of the engine. Can you please give me part numbers and prices for a full gasket kit for the transmission and for the engine. I will need to rebuild the transmission so please supply me with the part numbers and cost. Also can you give me a full parts list for rebuilding the engine (rings, piston, all bearings and seals, everything for the head). I would also need to know how long it would take to get the parts here to Canada and how much it would cost for the shipping.

Thanks

Renault RC8D parts

I am looking for a water pump (single impeller) assembly for the RC8D motor. Does anyone out there have an engine out of use with a working water pump? Also, is there a source of engine parts for the RC8D?

Thanks,

Don't have a working water pump available at the moment. What other parts are you looking for?

Thanks, but no other parts needed at this time. Do you get parts from Tony in either England or Ireland?
I have a copy of the motor manual for the Rc8D - can supply if you need.

After 20 plus years with my rc30 d I yanked it and scrapped it . After seeing your posts someone may have been able to use parts, sorry. I have been begging for parts and info for three years, to no avail. My engine was truly done, I amm seeing a lot of you guys are hunter owners, is this an engine they used in an earlier boat? I could not even find impellers, the last 3 years I fabricated an electric water pump..... RED

Renault engine parts

I am sorry you could not find parts - these 30+ yr old engines are now unique specimens. Renault Couach is out of business for a number of years now. I was able to get parts until about 6 yrs ago from a marine diesel shop in San Leon TX, but they stopped working on Renault and sold all their inventory. If you Google Renault couach parts, you will find an unsponsored site in GBR where parts are available (apparently I cannot include the email in my msg). Tony is the owner and has inventory of parts or will have them manufactured (e.g. impellers for my engine). Very expensive parts, but apparently the only source. While its too late for you, you might pass the info around for those who may still be looking.

hello forum members,
My name is Hans and I come from the Netherlands.

My ships engine RC8D can not stop with the aid of the external throttle lever
is the only way to make use of the compression lever.
The Renault garage told that this may be due to the contacts?

Do you know a solution?
Are you also in possession of a legible copy of the repair manual?
