Newbie (1/14)



  1. Behind this plug there is the selector shaft moving.On my gearbox oil was coming out from the centre hole and between the sides.You only have to fill up the casting where the plug is pressed in complete with sealant.
  2. Dont press sealant into the tiny hole of the plug.
  3. I used the (Dirko) black sealant from Elring.You can use every engine or gearbox sealant.It should be oil and fuel resistent and good cleaning with brake cleaner.No leaking since i have done this (1000 km)
  4. Its a simple eccentric (original Lotus)timing belt bearing mounted to the A/C bracket.For the waterpump belt we made a tensioner too .Its much easier when you have to change the belts.But with this solution there is no place for the A/C compressor,it can be dismantled again once you find the correct belt for the dry sump pump.
  5. That makes sense.The same happens with my auxiliary housing.There was a little play within the holes.We had to align the aux. housing to match with the other pulleys.So it should be an easy job...
  6. No Steve.Look on part no.041 what i mean.
  7. The snubber on the tensioner is not adjustable Steve.Ther are only shims between the snubber and tensioner.
  8. Nice autumn trip with friends.
  9. I,ve mounted the top altenator screw from the other side.With the engine in the car you could not remove this long bolt if the alt. is faulty.

    New Esprit

    I was always a fan of the Renault Alpine.But when i saw the new Alpine A110 i think they should have left it as it was.It doesnt matter which engine is installed when it looks like this.Its a clone between a Celica and Scirocco. As known,tastes differ 😂
  12. Sorry i can't help.My Essex dont have the thermal trip.I have a two relay block
  13. The accelerator pumps only add fuel when you depress the gas pedal a bit faster but they do nothing when the pedal will be depressed very very smooth.As said above they do nothing on idling.
  14. The spark plugs can tell you if its rich or lean or when you have a blocked carb.So its worth to have a look at them
