Hello everyone on here, this is my first post and wont be my last going by the number of issues i am having with my recently purchased Lotus Esprit
I had fuel pouring out of the four inlets on my engine, i have set the float heights as per instruction on here. I also thought it prudent to change the needle valves.
When i removed the old needle valves i see they are 225 competition type instead of the standard 200 as stated in the book. I have fitted brand new viton tipped 200 needle valves and 10 gram floats and all is well again.
What i want to know is will there be a significant difference between the two needle valves with regard to performance ??????
The engine was rebuilt by the previous owner and looking at the images and previous rolling road results it was producing 210 hp which is quite impressive for a NA car.
