  1. Thank you for the explanations . I already use this type of grease for the brakes. I had a doubt because I thought the grease and the brake oil were in contact. But after thorough cleaning I saw that there was an oring joint which separated them. Here, I have two slightly different handbrake cables (caliper side)?
  2. Je vais aux freins arrière. - Le frein à main semble bien fonctionner mais est dur. - La roue gauche tourne librement, la droite frotte constamment. J'ai commencé par détendre les câbles de frein à main pour voir s'ils en étaient la cause. Mais non, même détendue, la roue droite frotte toujours. Conclusion, l'étrier de frein doit être légèrement grippé. Retrait du siège pour accéder aux câbles. Trois écrous tournent facilement, un casse. Dépose de l'étrier arrière droit, pas de soucis. Démontage complet. Le levier de fre
  3. Hello, small steps with the brakes. Reassembly of the brake calipers. I do not remember when dismantling that there were two différent shims? The shim with arrow, i have only one. Strange
  4. Thank you for the link, Escape The choice of 3.9 is because I already have it. I do not sell my cars, it will be for my sons when I am no longer there.
  5. Voici la première mise à niveau: les freins. En effet, les étriers avant étaient bloqués. Je les ai trempés pendant 24 heures dans du mazout pour pouvoir retirer les pistons. J'ai enduit les étriers de poudre de vernis transparent. then reassemble everything with a repair kit. I also sent the brake master cylinder for overhaul to a brake and clutch specialist. Result: not repairable Will have to find a new one. it seems difficult. Is there an equivalence?
  6. Bonvoir gvy, You're absolutely right. The fuel pump is often a problem on a car and not just Lotus. So a new one to be quiet. The engine will of course have a new belt. You are an observer, I actually wrote "restomod". After general repair and after driving for a while, I will convert with a 3.9 V8 rover engine. Although we cannot perhaps say that this engine is a technological upgrade ... There will also be other small modifications which I will talk about as we go along. I know it will not please everyone but it will not remain full stock.
  7. thank you. The beginning here :
  8. I have no merit it is google translate. I hope it goes well.
  9. Thanks for the link I didn't know. I thought that the shape of the beam lhd or rhd and due to the design of the glass. I already bought new lights.
  10. Bonjour à tous. Comme déjà dit dans ma présentation, j'ai acheté cette Lotus Esprit S3 sur ebay. J'habite en Belgique, et je l'ai acheté sur la base de photos et sur les mots du vendeur. Je vais le restaurer complètement, mais d'abord je veux le restaurer pour pouvoir rouler avec. Voici quelques photos du vendeur. Concernant l'état du véhicule selon le vendeur, il y a eu un problème avec les freins, le moteur ne démarre pas sauf avec le pilote de démarrage car l'essence s'écoule des carburateurs, et il n'y a plus de pompe à
