  1. As @Escape but with a V8. No gearbox or clutch problems around town and it has never overheated, even on holiday in blistering South West France. I would have your clutch and cooling system looked at Makis.
  2. This is all diversionary tactics to delay Sparky getting the matches to the glovebox inner. Alternatively he could follow Ian's lead and melt the bugger down in the oven?
  3. I hope that you have a fine pair of oven mitts, you domestic god.
  4. ..said the man buried in engine parts up to his knees in his garage...
  5. @Sparky send a pic to Steve at SJ? If anyone knows, he should. He's probably got a shelf full that he can't shift ha ha.
  6. @Sparky then it should be off another model then. Can you post the pic in the general Lotus yack forum to get a wider audience to help please?
  7. Ok then, let's get rational and assume that the pick list sticker is for the right part - as ordered by Bibs - but they have picked the WRONG item. Hence Sparky's frustration with a red herring flapping around in his hands for years. It must have got a bit smelly by now? So. Was it ordered direct from Lotus, in which case it must be off another model (Europa? Dunno), although Sparky says he has looked. If it was ordered off of a third party dealer then it literally could be anything. @Bibs where did you get it from sir?
  8. Yer, someone in the Lotus parts department was either on his last day and feeling hateful or was drunk. It is probably off an Eclat or something.
  9. <removed> Sorry, didn't notice that you could get stainless..! Will have a look for some zinc plated steel or similar... ------------------------------------- 50mm below, cut them down. Bit pricey but they look quite rare!
  10. A real world example of the above. We had a six turbine wind farm installed a few miles away from us a few years back to the massive celebrations of the local greenies. Today it is very cold, tonight it will get down to below zero around these parts. The air pressure is around the highest I have ever seen, 1050mb, which means a high is overhead. I've just driven past the wind turbines, of course there is no wind, no blade movement and no contribution to what must be a high energy requirement situation. Rubbish.
