    Engine sealant?

    Hylomar Gasket 2000 or Rover stuff is good. Loctite anaerobic gasket sealants seem to Harden over time leading to weep and leaks. Hylomar Blue stuff for the liners wasn't it IIRC???

    NA Esprit S3 choke operation

    Found out my choke pistons were jammed solid.
  6. Refurbishing a pair of Dellorto DHLA45E carburetors as part of restoration work on a 1984 Esprit S3 NA. The choke cable was disconnected when I got the car. I found that both choke levers on the top of the carburetors would move through a small angle when moved by hand. This is similar for both carburetors. Seeking opinions and advice if this is correct? TIA
  7. Thank you. Much appreciated.
  8. Did the NA S3's have matt black bumpers in 1983? I am totally confused as the attached sales brochure for 1985 seem to indicate color coded bumpers but others say black. But I cannot tell if it was the same for the 1983 cars.

    Cambelt tensioner rebuild

    Where did you order your tensioner parts from? Most tensioner parts seem to be no longer available, and I need to recondition the tensioner on my S3

    Cambelt tensioner bearing

    I succumbed to the temptation and bought a Facom DM.16 for under £90.

    Cambelt tensioner bearing

    That was going to be my next question. Other than a mega expensive tool, which other method of tensioning..........the 90 degree twisting method?
  15. I am about to do my first cam belt change on a 1984 NA S3. Can anyone advise if the tensioner bearing (part no. 27) is usually changed as part of the procedure. Car has done 22,995 miles form new, but previous history is unknown. TIA.
