    Which carb

    Thanks. I have this in the service notes. I have spoken to Dellorto who have the exact correct kit for the car. More entertainment coming my way I think!

    Which carb

    Cheers Steve
  5. I always had it my head the Turbo Esprit had Dellorto DHLA 45 carbs. Just checked and the service notes say DHLA 40H. 907 engines had 45's. I assume this is right?
  6. Yes. Ill find a fix. Thanks for your help with my sparking issue by the way
  7. Well Eric. That little plan didnt work! See “No spark thread”. Will speak to someone other than SJ tomorrow.

    No spark

    Well after all that I have now found oil pouring through past the O ring on distributor shaft and this is just from turning the engine over. The new one installed obviously not correct. Had a separate post about this. One of the carbs not supplying fuel. Admittedly have been sitting a while. Now considering removing the carbs and getting them refurbed. Sorting the oil leak while I have access and then in about 1 month should be back to where I am today!!!!!! Thanks though guys for all your help

    Back to original coil and amplifier and still got a spark on the plug. It might even run this afternoon Andy. Mounted on rear wheel arch by the battery

    I have a spark. I have got this by disconnecting the rev limiter. I got this test from John Mountain. Ex Lotus guy. He says this suggests a fault somehwere else in the car. I shall now continue to get engine running and worry about the probable fault another day. Thank you all so much for your help up to now.
