  1. It would be nice to have a reference of the estimated labour time it 'roughly' takes to do maintenance/repairs/replacements/modifications for some of the Esprit V8 specific tasks. It would help to budget for future maintenance/modifications and check invoices. I would like to know the labour for the following tasks : timing belts - engine rebuild - gearbox rebuild - new clutch - new radiator - new condensors - new brake discs and pads - new suspension - new fuel tanks - new exhaust. A rough estimate/range in hours is sufficient.
  2. I am also having difficulties finding 235/40/17 tyres. I have Toyo right now. Is 245/40/17 the next best alternative in size? What would be the effect of having a slightly wider front tyre? Could you compensate with tyre pressure?
  3. Thanks Derek, yes, you are correct, I made a mistake and cross referenced the ACDelco 214-1091/GM 15759044 with the wrong part. I am trying to find a cross reference and picture for Lotus part A082P4461F, the water valve!
  4. I would like two know if these two different Lotus V8 part numbers are actually the same item. A082P4461F (diagram 18.05-06) and A082L6210F (diagram 44.05-22)? ACDelco 214-1091 and GM 15759044 are crosse reference part numbers for the A082P4461F. Is A082L6210F the same part? They look very similar.
  5. After 15 years (OMG, time flies) I still own my 1999 Esprit V8 SE and I am still thinking of removing the passenger airbag and create a glovebox instead. I am not comfortable with having a 20+ year old airbag in my car. It will save weight and instead create some desperately needed space in the cabine. Anybody have the same thought?
  6. Like this one? It is a 1999 Lotus Esprit V8 SE in immaculate condition but a left hand drive! It was owned, driven and maintained by Lotus for most of its life. It got a new engine around 40.000 Km. The new engine has been revised. Car is running perfectly. I am considering selling but I think you want a right hand drive. BTW, I lived in Chiswick last year on Bath Road. Good luck finding the right car!
  7. I recently bought an AutoXRay EZ-Scan 4000 to get OBD II info on my 1999 Lotus Esprit V8. Connection works well and I can see the info on my screen, however some questions Is it correct to configure the unit under OBDII Generic? Is there any way to configure this unit for a Lotus V8 engine? When I try the O2 sensor the unit does not support this test. Same experience? Is there any point in upgrading the unit to enhanced OBD II features? Thanks Christiaan
  8. Vetronix cartridge for Lotus Esprit LOTUS 1989 ECM 'ESPRIT' Part number TK02370 Serial number 11050195 Never used because I never found a Tech 1 scanner
  9. Lotus Esprit Toolkit for sale on eBay
  10. I would seriously sell my esprit V8 SE and buy one!!
  11. I have one available for you if you can not find one. Let me know if you want it. I will sell it for GBP 50. It is the one with the AC.
  12. Jane Seymour Jane Seymour! Most beautifull woman ever! Has style and class! Is classic! Is a Bond girl! Is english (and little bit dutch)! Still looks great when older! No doubt about it!
  13. Instead of investing a lot of time in another Esprit information source, I say LEW is that source and it would be better to help Kato expand his site. Or else all the information is scattered around numerous sites.
  14. I did some investigating a while ago and found this website. Do a product search on the keyword 'Vacuum pump'. What shows up looks a lot like the pump I was looking for. If you contact them and do some questioning they might have what you are looking for. Good luck
