  1. Just done my cam covers as per the above video , waited 24 hours , road test . changed oil and filter on return home. no leaks
  2. Check float heights, I had trouble setting mine up after a rebuild. The new valves and seats I was supplied with were crap, sticking and shutting off at random settings. I reverted back to the old ones and runs much better
  3. There’s a video on YouTube of a guy doing the head on his 907 powered JH. As a new install, everything is clean and dry, I think this is the key element in sealing up the cam covers and waiting 24 hours until start up . no gaskets, just a good splodge of sealant
  4. Wasn’t pertronix, was an accuspark / powerspark lucas 45 replacement
  5. Not sure if you can with an s3 but I did swap out a duff lumenition system with a pertronix dizzy , was a cheap(ish) fix
  6. I’ve often thought an underside air scoop could be fabricated to channel a flow to the oil cooler but is probably pointless as on normal runs , the standard system can cope on my s2, temperature does creep up sitting in traffic . Need to consider not only how to get cooling air in to the engine bay but also how to get the hot air out
  7. Mines a n/a 907 and the generic starter map values were the same as the lotus spec so loading the map was simple without any tweaking. there is a guy on the auto sports forum who has mapped a turbo and his info is here the mega jolt software allows for easy modification to any map or to simply input your own Good luck!
  8. Now that could handle ! Taking 90 degree corners at....well , 90 degrees! agree with the posts here, I remember as a kid most of my birthday and Christmas presents that I asked for were model vehicles from Tv series or movies. doesnt seem to be anything like that on the shelves nowadays
  9. I fitted a mega jolt system on mine around 10 years ago and never looked back built the mega jolt from kit form , think these are unavailable now but the ready built units are. Edis , coil pack and sensors from a fiesta.
  10. Took mine out with the gearbox still attached . Out from the bottom , no cranes just a cradle made from a shopping trolley and a trolley jack , Engine went back in without the gearbox which was fitted back after the motor was on its mountings. bit of a chew on but was do-able
  11. Seems like ACBC’s car may now be actually affordable soon
  12. So around 8 years ago, I changed a tacho on a mates Eclat. I asked what he wanted to do with the old one and as it was going to go in the bin I asked to keep it . seemed a shame to bin it as it had the lotus logo On the face fast forward now and I came across it in my old toolbox, and , used a scrap piston from a compressor at work to upcycle piston was machined with a flat to stop it rolling and turned out to accommodate the clock. new bezel made to fit Clock assembly and now on the mantelpiece Clock assembly and now on the mantelpiece
  13. lots here
  14. Yeah, not the best, I can’t understand why that was done Anyway I took the silencer off and chopped it to as short as the pipe bends and the Tips would allow then welded it back up it’s not ideal but is a lot better
