  1. Hi Jimmy, I am using a usb to serial adaptor with a freescan cable I got back in 2000 Simon
  2. Hi There, Has anyone used freescan with vista? On the old desktop (windows 98) freescan worked a treat, on the "new" laptop with a usb adaptor all I get is "Finding Start Header". Any ideas Simon
  3. Hi Rog, Its a German company they are called "Pertsch & Partner", go on Ebay do a shop search for p7777p. Regards Simon
  4. I have found the suplier for the 10 spline sockets and they have arrived today the company also stocks the nuts and bolts. the next thing is to find assembly details for the wheels. Simon
  5. Hi Brian, Try Phil at the South West Lotus Centre, I saw some when I was last down there. Regards. Simon
  6. Hi There, Has any one refurbished their OZ Futura's themselves, I know that there is a bit on it on the main site, I wanted to find out what problems there might be and if any one had any further information. Regards Simon
  7. Hi, When i get back home i will send you details of replacement AP alloy pistons and seals, Lotus cut corners with these calipers and opted for steel pistons. All of mine corroded and leaked when i changed the pads. Have you come up with a plan for the discs as these calipers eat discs, my car has done 30k and discs are on lower limit. Simon

  9. Thats My Car!!! I was doing engine tests to check turbo boost etc, I find it safer to check things out on a steep hill then you don't run into anything!!! Hello John and welcome, this car is quite unique. I don't think there are many like it and you will be lucky to find one. It is my first Lotus and I got it by accident. I have to say it was a bag of worms and I wanted to take it back, I still have it 8 years later!!! Lotus dealers can be a waste of time when it comes to maintenance etc, took me a year and
  10. Hi I had the same problem a couple of years ago, It was a faulty quad driver in the ECM. Get a fresh one and transfer memcal. There a couple of alternate part numbers see dr Hess or esprit factfile websites. My fresh ecm cost $6. Regards Simon
  11. Hi there After confirming that my oil pressure indication system is not accurate on my 300 sport, has anyone fitted a more accurate sender/gauge combination. Due to the large number of posts on the issue of low oil pressure indication I think it is time to source an alternative. Any ideas please Simon
  12. Hi there I have connected an oil pressure external gauge to the oil temp sender port, at idle with a cold engine 50 psi on external gauge, car indicates 1 bar. When hot 15 psi on external gauge, car gauge well ito red and oil light flickering. You have to confirm what your actual oil pressure is before doing anything else. Regards Simon
  13. Hi there, Check the wire that goes to the sender unit. If it becomes disconnected guage goes full scale. Regards Simon
  14. This Problem is probably an earth issue. The water temp and oil temp guages increase, the oil pressure and fuel guages decrease when the headlights are switched on. The same thing happens when the rad fans start to operate. I have cleaned the main earth points but still the same. Regards Simon
  15. Hi Ken Lotus also give an idle figure of 5 psi in my book, I was concerned because my oil light will flicker at idle when hot so I contacted some lotus independents, it is quite common and ok provided at higher rpm the pressure is ok. Regards Simon
