  1. Stevens turbo left in a Total garage 4 miles west of Le Mans reg C7 6NY. I live not fare away , so can i help ???
  2. Nig, How's it going? I've orderred a load of bits from Steve at SJs. The Dizzy cap is knackered, and the rotar arm is a bugger to get off. Won't be driving my Esprit until I replace the carb gaskets, and replace dizzy & rotar arm, then I'll call in to see you. Don't know what your up to, but I'll be seeing my mate for lunch tomorrow. (Emanu, french bloke who helped out). Cheers, Eddie

  3. Nigel, See you are in the area, seems to be British and into Esprits. fancy meeting up? I'm in Teloché, cheers Eddie

  4. I live 25 miles west of Le Mans Andrew, so as i was intending spending a couple of hours asleep in the car i took my estate. Very boring !!,
  5. Hi Andrew, from the look of your picture of the park fermay you must have been in ACO stand. As i took a virtually identical picture you must have been standing next to me, How Ironic. Nigel
  6. I could hear sport cars on the toll road to Le Mans last night from my vegetable patch 2 miles away, exciting and frustrating at the same time. Never mind off to qualifying later then home to my own bed, Nigel
  7. Thanks for the attention Mike and Ian but when are you coming to see us Mike? We have some Lotus people from Norfolk in the Gite for the Classic and 2 or 3 other weeks booked so we had better get it finished!!.
  8. Hi ianQ. I see you and some pals are passing though my neck of the woods, that's 25 mils west of Le Mans on the Laval road. If you get time call in for some refreshment, as my esprit is getting a little lonely out hear. Nigel
  9. To thoughts Le Mans lovers how like a bit of comfort i have moved 25 miles west of Le Mans and have converted a building into a gite. It has two bedrooms but with the sofa bed downstairs 8 very good friends could all fined a bed. I fave no bookings for the 24 hour or the classic yet as just finishing it now. It must be the only unbooked accommodation within 50 miles of Le Mans in June and July. So if interested send me an email Nigel
  10. The reason i used a thin conversion plate and spaced the flywheel out 20mm was because the input shaft was to short to reach. This may not be the case with the jag flywheel. Just something to bear in mind when you do your initial lineup. Nigel
  11. The clutch slave will not give you a problem as i left it in the same position on my old s3 zetec conversion. As for the clutch and flywheel i used mondeo with lotus friction plate and have had no trouble in over two years.The only thing that i had to do was space the flywheel out by about 20mm so that it was in the right position for the input shaft and friction plat splines. I also mounted a bearing in the spacer for the shaft to run in. In a crazy move to use what i had got and save money i mounted the mondeo starter on the gearbox as a mondeo would, it was lineup hell but got there in the end. The conversion plat i made myself from 10mm steel for strength as i was trying to keep it as thin as possible. hope that helps Nigel
  12. Hi daz, happy new year. I am now living in France 25 minutes west of Le Mans and loving not being in England at the moment, are you in Canader yet? best regards Nigel

  13. Hi Wayne just replied to your email before reading this topic. the mondeo duratec will be the cheapest way but less powerful than the jag, i love mine though and it makes as good a sound as Punkys with all the reliability. The only thing i would say is if you are looking for the ease way the isn't one, you will have less hair at the end Nigel Nigel
  14. I Parked behind a UK reg v8 at Le mans today, also spotted lots and lots of lotes on track.
