  1. Hi Andy, SJ sell the blue racing gates belts, I have them on my car, worth the extra money for peace of mind Cheers Tim
  2. Hi Mike, Thanks for the response I appreciate it, I think I will be going with the AP as I am running std engine. I did e mail AP about the clutch options they do for the esprit but did not get a reply. Kind regards Tim
  3. I only get the vibration when doing a hill start, on the level the engine / clutch take up is smooth. Thanks
  4. Mike, Could you keep e up-dated on the response from SJ and your thoughts. Appreciated
  5. Hi Mike, SJ have several clutches on there website. Uprated clutch link below https://www.sjsportscars.com/parts-and-accessories/SJ082Q0019.htm I also e mailed AP in Coventry to see what range they did for the Esprit V8. With what I experiencing judder / vibration on incline setting of, would this make you think the clutch is on its way? Thanks for the advice
  6. Hi Guys, I am looking for some advice on clutch options, my car has some judder only when on an incline, but on the level it is a treat, as mentioned on here before about the pick up pipe dropping of into the sump pan due to vibration and that is the last thing anyone wants to happen to any motor! so thinking ahead what are the options? I see on some of the specialist web sites they do a recon clutch £650, then there is a upgrade heavy duty option for about £1100. Has anyone any experience of these options? Also has anyone fitted the new style clutch cylinder as the original is not
  7. Just a question, and I think I have read this before, how does the pick up pipe end up in the sump? This will obviously starve the engine of oil when it happens. Thanks
  8. Club lotus do my valuation and then sent to my insurance for the agreed value certificate.
  9. Gents, So sorry to read this thread, I sent all my hoses to roose years ago and they made the kit. I am sure I had sent all the hoses that we could find on my 2001 car, we had the heater matrix in bits, all the radiator hoses, front end, and all the engine hoses. If you find hoses in the kit that are missing or that are in-correct I would contact roose and I am sure they will be glad to make them for you, they took around six weeks. I would prefer that the kit was correct but unsure if there are differences between V8 cars over the production life. Apolagies again.
  10. Good caliper, used cromwell quite a few times. The engineering company you are talking to may get you discount??
  11. Thanks for posting Car SOS, good to watch and put a smile on both of their faces.....😀
  12. Mine was made by Radtec, fitted with no issues and been in 7 years with no issues with black silicone hoses.
  13. I spoke too two of the previous owners of the car I bought and looked at the bills and for the last 16 years the maintainence bills have never ever outweighed the smile it puts on my face... everytime I hear the thud of the engine starting and the torque up the Derbyshire hills never fails to be a win win for me..... 😀
