  1. Agreed. Could be debris or some clogging but no indication of clogging inside. do you know the dimensions of the original rads Gaz. Do you know what one they fitted Christian size and core number.
  2. When moving at 50 mph just about on between the digits on the 90 when in traffic up on the hundred with the fans running continuously. Had to reset the otter switch twice as it popped and had fan fail tell tail. not been an issue before.
  3. Changed the pulleys to HTD and fitted a blue belt. Little more reliable tooth profile. Manual tensioner from Kemp. 45 degree twist method. When it warmed up was a Little noisy so backed off a bit. Gary Kemp informed me these belts are 100k no problem. You would have to tension it with a scaffold pole to break it.
  4. Has anyone fitted an aluminium 3core rad into an 84 MY turbo Esprit. I have a water cooled turbo and since I fitted it I seem to be running a little hotter. the water return pipe is tapped into the Header tank and is circulating fine but I think it’s struggling to bring down the temp with the standard rad and fans. Need to know it fits before I go stripping out. I don’t want to hack the rad tray about to make it fit. Any thoughts ? wayne
  5. May have a lad with a Mach 1 mustang turning up and maybe John Deighton can’t count oneither to be fair but maybes W

  8. Chris i had a few guys in Essex mention about meeting up. They are on FB but not the forum. Are you on FB. I was considering starting an Essex and herts Lotus FB page. Thoughts? I did steer them to TLF but not sure if they registered. Bibs thoughts about a region link on the TLF FBook page? wayne

  13. Kind words Gary I was available before Christmas for about 6 weeks as I was between contracts. Been picked up for another 18 months work Building Flats in Fulham. Not as much fun as building 910s in my workshop. all the afore mentioned engineers would do a brilliant job. @Sparky is first on the list though.
  14. Me.... mine is the bollox... i thought it was a very straight forward Build to be fair. My second 910 Turbo engine from the crankshaft up. some make it sound like a Saturn 5 to build. It’s an internal combustion engine, that’s all. And to be fair the tolerances are not even that tight. the main thing is having the right kit and space. Fabian was dead unlucky IMO. Had a follower fail by the sound of it. nothing to do with blast media. My entire block, sump and head blasted. Clean as a whistle. No residue. Good as gold. stop over thinking it. @Lotusfab
  15. Unfortunately Michelle is really under the weather so we are going to cancel this month. Happy new year everyone. wayne and Michelle
  16. The Hornchurch massive will be in attendance. ( Both members... )
