  1. As part of the tidy up of my S2 whilst the body is off I have replaced the tank breather tube running it where as it was previously. So looking from the back of the car the tube runs up from the right hand filler neck, around the edge of the tailgate lip over to the left hand side filler neck where there is a tee, one end goes into the left hand tank filler neck where should it go then - my car has no evaporation tank so keen to know where was the vapour from the 2 joined tanks is supposed to go from the tee? out under the left hand tank?

  6. Hello all on the forum - been an interesting time since Feb when CV-19 appeared. Good job I had the Esprit to do would have been a boring time without, as I did 22weeks isolation For health reasons, so Lotus cars are a benefit to mental well-being after all! DVG was a going concern but looking close to having problems as well as having lots of perished bushes and poor damping - but essentially very original which is why I bought it. I’ve got the lotus letter saying it was was used by Reutemann in the 70s when he drove for the team so I thought we needed to give it a deep tidy rather than
