  1. Hello all. Back in 2006 I sold my Esprit S3 but just bought a white S3 again from Historics with no history! Drives superb but looking for some background. It came from Elo at the now closed London car museum. Its A868 DUJ. 200 miles in and loving it. I also set up a classic car hire company 4 years ago which has now grown to a nice little business. We have 25 odd cars and this will be number 26! Based in Weybridge if anyone fancies a meet sometime. Cheers and hello.... Again! http://Www.webbsofweybridge.co.uk Mark

  3. Yes, sorry, its the auto tensioner.
  4. Hello all, Well its that time again (being an ex S3 Esprit owner and now an S2 Esprit owner) for usual serious problems. In changing the timing belt, we discovered that the tensioner was affixed with only one of the shims. This has now bent the tensioner as it sat generally at an angle. Over time it seems it has gone over and I am either in need of a new one (any ideas where to source one?) or risk trying to bend it back... and the belt slipping off. God knows how its stayed on over the last few drives before we realised! Whilst im at it, the water pump is seized on and we may have to cut the whole bloody thing off! Either that or take the engine out to drill out the stuck bolts..... not the best of days but any advice/parts/suppliers knowledge welcome! Thanks, Mark
  5. Thanks guys, might have to go down the SJ route... still keen to find originals
  6. Hi All, I am in the midst of converting a sorry S2 into a happy S2. At the moment she looks like this: and I want her to look like this again as she was featured as the press release car in 1979 in a few magazines: So i am in need of some parts, if anyone has any info then do let me know. front s2 bumper s1/2 side sills, rear s2 bumper rear boot glass original steering wheel s2 engine cover I have parts ready to swap/sell, they are as follows: S3 front bumper S3 Rear bumper turbo side sills turbo front splitter turbo rear louvres Thanks Mark
  7. well, thats re assuring, sort of... not too sure about busted rings. not so good. Any way, sourcing parts is tough.... trying to get this car back to standard is proving a challenge! i would, in an ideal world, like the original air filter box and the engine cover back! I will keep looking and if anyone has any parts.... you know who to pm
  8. Hi All, Well, I changed the hoses and all is now well. Stopping and everything. Took her for a test drive and the brakes didn't over heat and all breaks seem to be working as they were intended.... now jsut to adjust the handbreak. One final though off break subject. There was some steam/smoke/visible vapour escaping from the small filters shown in the pic below during the run, the filters below the air filter and to the right of the oil cap....also, what is the cylinder at the bottom of the page? an oil reservoir? ..... any thoughts appreciated! Mark sorry, pic is here
  9. The pads had loads of meat left on them so i put them back (the right way round) but they did have some unusual wear and even some chips on them... i wonder if this has anything to do with it. i cleaned them up best i could. I do have a feeling it is the hoses.... i will try and bleed some more of the system, coming to think of it, the rear back calliper when bleeding didnt flow so well.... ill bleed again do a few more miles and post back, thanks again! Mark
  10. All fitted but didnt bother with braided hoses.... went for a run and the front left and rear left are still gripping slightly.... so ive ordered some braided hoses note to self - do a job properly
  11. Hi Pete, i tried lotusbits, they only had a rear bumper and havent got back to me regarding cost, i will call them. i missed a front spoiler on ebay, went for £20 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151418022678?ssPageName=STRK:MEDWX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1435.l2649 John, i didnt realise they came in brown!? so i suppose the interior is brown then so should the steering wheel be..... have you a pic? also, how much? Thanks so far guys. I have a feeling the glass is going to be the hardest bit to find.... and getting the turbo sills off equally as tricky!
  12. Hi All, I am in the midst of converting a sorry S2 into a happy S2.

SJ sports say they can make us some bits but i thought i would check here first! front spoiler front s2 bumper s1/2 side sills, both rear s2 bumper rear boot glass original steering wheel original gear knob s2 engine cover Thanks Mark Attached Thumbnails
  13. OK quick update, all callipers gone off for shiny new (recon) callipers so i will now be able to stop/go Any tips on bleeding the system when the new parts turn up? anything i should be aware of? Thanks in advance! Mark
  14. Hi Molemot, ah well, pistons split now.... i did discover the two small seals but those pistons are not coming out even with mole grips, im sending them off for a refub... i saw SJsports do fronts for around £50, can anyone else recommend an alternative if sj are unable to help? Thanks. M
  15. sorry, pic wasnt attached.... So, the rubber seals werent even there on some of the callipers. . not keen on risking a refurb as they look pretty messy. the rears are off tomorrow. Mark
