Venturi Atlantique Bi-Turbo - parts needed

Postby steve spectre » Mon Jan 09, 2017 9:51 am

Hi All,
In need of a few parts for my Venturi, thought I would try here as well for UK suppliers before Extreme-liberte;
Cambelt Kit
waterpump
thermostat
plug leads
coreplug set
clutch concentric (or complete clutch.

Chassis Nr VF9CUP81199673063

there also a code on the timing cover
18FJ23 XFZPSA 0028022

All help greatly appreciated

Steve

Something odd about the pictures....
The engine is very similar to the Clio V6, but also more humdrum things like the Laguna, Espace 24V V6 cars.
I would expect the cambelt kit to be common, probably the thermostat, ignition leads, and core plugs, you might be lucky and find the clutch kit is too, but as it's a 24v L-series engine and a UN1 box, that might need some more research. That combination didn't make it into a Renault as far as I'm aware. the engine itself was a venturi rework if I remember correctly.
Then engine type cross references to a Peugeot 406 24v V6...thats broadly the same engine as used in Espace 3 and Laguna.
I'd do my research through euro car parts and then go and buy genuine Renault items once I'd matched up the models.

Sorry I can't be more help.

The engine is a Peugeot 406 3.0 v6 engine so all the belt kit should be the same.

I was told by Nicholas Mee that the engine was from a Safrane with the twin turbos added after development.

That would be the safrane bi turbo which was the earlier 12v prv engine. Not in any Venturi's though afaik. The Atlantique bi turbo is the later 24v psa engine. The earlier 24v prv never made it into any renault but was of course in the Venturi 400.

Hi Ewan,

Expecting the car complete next week, not had much progress the past 3 weeks as the garage doing the work have been a bit short staffed, hopefully on the road next weekend, will post a pic
