  1. The miracle happened. The new reversing switch I fitted was screwed in about 2mm too far. Backed it off 2 or 3 turns and all is well. "Phew"
  2. Hi Guys Just hoping for a miracle! Having just fully rebuilt the elan have discovered that I an unable to get reverse, just grinding of the gears. I have removed the nylon cap, gear lever and selector link and can see the reverse selector cup, operating it with a screw driver (fully forward) ie back on the gear-lever it will not engage (same gear grinding). Is there any solution with the box in situ? Do I have to remove the engine / breadbox assy?
  3. anyone know where I can get 2 x aluminium gutter trims for an S4 FHC? Thanks Stu
  4. My Elan rebuild is coming along well but RH rear lamps are out of stock at SJ sports cars in UK. Anyone know where I might find one? USA perhaps?
  5. Thanks for that, I was planning to use a sealer.
  6. Hi I am rebuilding my 69 S4 Elan The rolling chassis is finished and I am preparing the body for spraying. Does anyone out there have experience of spraying an elan or any fibreglass car with clear over base? my TVR was finished in clear coat and looked fantastic. Thanks to John Watkins for info on the centre consul it in the post to NZ and should arrive along with new body seals, door and boot rubbers and new lights.

  8. Hi, when lifting the body off my 69 Elan S4 the heater valve had to be removed to clear the body during the lift. However the heater valve could not be unscrewed because it hit the fibreglass inner wing. No problem as the valve was buggered I simply cut off the heater hose fitting and unscrewed it. Refitting the new one will be an issue though. Can I swap over the heater valve and the temperature probe? Has anyone else had this problem?
  9. I need 2 new front suspension units for my 68 Elan S4. I live in NZ where parts supply is limited. any part numbers, make or equivalents. Any advice would be welcome
  10. I have started stripping the Elan and removing the body from the chassis. Does anyone know where to get a centre consul plastic moulding. The padded arm rest is OK but the moulding is broken around the gear leaver.
  11. Following this post I have found one now, 68 Elan S4. getting ready for the big rebuild
  12. Hi, I am based in Dunedin and have a 74 Europa Special. Am looking for my next project and would like to rebuild an early elan. Any help in finding one (any condition) would be appreciated. thanks Stu
