Hi Harry. Email is correct. I can’t find anything 4th March. Hope you and your family are well in these troubling times. I have no idea if the Cwp in my box has been upgraded. How would I know it is or will be a problem. Car has done 61000 miles. As for the dry sump oil pump. I have a spare housing and 2 annulus but no shaft or other bits are you familiar with them? J

Thank you. I will save up for the parts when I can work again. Self employed so not earning during the virus. As for the oil pump you would need my current one to copy? For my spare one?  Not sure I want to do that yet. Stay safe. J

These are for the Citroen boxes. I believe that the crown wheel run backwards in the Esprit so contacts the 'softer' back side of the teeth.

They look fantastic and I'm saving hard for a set 🙂


It's getting there......

What is the benefit of reversing them ? I’m assuming this is the Citroen boxes rather than the Renault ones. 

Any benefit to reversing the Renault set?.

Barry,  here you'll find answers to your questions and a history of the development of this concept:ën-g-box-crown-wheel-and-pinion.350506/

@Barrykearley there is a lot of info on here as well. Has to do with the driven and the non-driven sides of the teeth on the crownwheel.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
