  1. As per title WHY Cheers Mark
  2. It's on my list to investigate fully
  3. m10 male and female
  4. Looking at fitting a manual switch but also a timer that will become active when the ignition is switched off - to help to reduce heat after a drive. where are all the steel pipework that you replaced, and sizes if you have them isolation valve - good call.
  5. Spent a few hours yesterday evening working on it. Have stripped the rear suspension down completely and is now soaking in Deox-C.

  13. Cambelt has arrived just need to fit. It will be done once I have stripped the rear end down and it's all soaking in Deox- C or waiting for the paint to full dry. Went for Quentin Hazel QTB122 which is the same width as the genuine lotus version. My list of parts is getting longer but that was expected.
