PostPosted: Fri Aug 03, 2012 3:47 pm    Post subject: Diesel 2CV? Reply with quote

Hello to all,

I am a new member living in the British colonies.

I have 2x2CV that I have saved in order to restore, and a 1971 AK350.

I am mostly a diesel mechanic but the 2CV is like a mania or an addiction.

I also speak and write French as well as I write English, so you can send me messages in French and get a comprehensible reply!

My question: On the internet I have heard about a 2CV equipped with a small two-cylindre air-cooled diesel.

Since I now have enough parts to make an extra car, I would like to know if anyone has information on this car or on the engine which will fit. I was told that the engine is a two-cylindre, air cooled.

Does anyone know?

Thanks!
======================
Ayo à tous!

Je suis Deuchiste qui habite une des anciennes colonies britanniques et qui parle français comme l'anglais. Pour moi, les Deuches, c'est une manie! J' en ai deux à restaurer: deux berlines, plus ma AK350.

Y a pas si longtemps, j'ai entendu dire qu 'on avait équipé une Deuche d'un moteur diesel. Tout ce qu je sais là-dessus, c' est que le moteur est diesel, bicylindre, avec refroidissement par air.
Quelqu'un en sait plus long, parce que je suis prêt à faire une Deuche diesel!

Merci d'avance pour toutes les infos!

it should be not that hard to build an dieselengine in your 2cv
just find a small engine that seems to fit on your 2cv flywheel
and make an adapter for the gearbox

pull some electronics for the fuelpomp and your done......almost

there are more then enough secondhand diesels on the market
but I whould go for a 3 cilinder

2 cilinder diesels run like shit

Thanks, I'll do more research and get a good Finnish translation device for the page.

It appears that the engine is an 800 cc engine but I cannot tell if it is diesel or not, I assume yes.

what do you base your opinions on regarding two-cylinder diesels? and are you talking industrial or motive-power?

I've been working for 25 years now with 2 and 3 cilinder diesel engine's
these are small car diesel versions in provesional lawn mowers(I'm a Headgreenkeeper on a golfcourse)
2 cilinders, in my opinion are loud and rough
3 cilinders are more smoother though there never gonna beat an petrol engine
note that these were all normal engines
maybe if you find a flat twin diesel it runs better Very Happy
never seen one though Neutral

Surely tho if you fit a Diesel engine, which revs half as high as a 2cv engine, it will make your car half as fast, unless you fit Monster Truck size wheels and tyres or fit a Differential from a non 2cv gearbox?????
