  1. Yes, already customized some spanners from doing this and other jobs ( now i see why i kept all those old spanners in the bottom draw of my tool box )
  2. I have slackened off the 3 mounting bolts to the block, just would like to know if taking off the pump and mount as one is the way and more importantly is it the easier way to refit?
  3. Hi All Any hints or tips on power steering pump removal Cheers Paul
  4. Yes Barry She goes through the white plastic tube real easy. Yes take the seat out makes the job a lot easier. As you a can see you only need to pull away the carpet from the front of the tunnel. I soaked my seat bolts in plenty of wd40 and they came easy
  5. All DONE AND ADJUSTED Thanks for the info, yes the clamp vital for adjusting the cable length (as i found out the first time and had to re do it) The only problem i came across was i had to reengineer the foot stop where the cable runs through it, the nipple on the end of the cable would not fit through the tube so it had to be drilled out (reamed) and de burred
  6. Cheers No have not released the clamp (did not realise there was one) this might be my problem Just had a look at the parts diagram, and its starting to make sense
  7. Cheers I was hoping not to have to take any thing apart, but hear goes i have a look.
  8. Hi All Any tips on how to remove and replace the throttle cable on my GT3 Tried pulling it out of the plastic sleeve that goes into the chassis tunnel but with no joy, unlatching the peddle end was the easy bit as my drivers seat is not in the car . Cheers Paul
  9. Cheers Alan Thanks, i could not find anything when i looked either, hopefully it was an odd lead i picked by mistake when i took the engine out at my mates workshop. Its a bit of a jumble sale in there at times. PAUL
  10. Hi Barry Thanks for letting me come round for a chat today and letting me into see the place where all the magic happens. You offered to help me identify a lead i seem to have spare, please see photos attached (This isn't just for Barry if anyone else can identify ). The three wires are coloured, solid green, green white stripe and yellow black stripe, and is 35 inches long. Cheers Paul


  12. Sorry for any confusion Just my 2 pennies worth, i think the colour coded bumpers suit it more than the black ones. (I hope i don't get struck off for such heresy )
  13. Hi Mike If i have the right Mike, i spoke to you at the Silverstone Classic a few years ago and showed you some pics on my phone of my GT3 which you seemed to think you had driven in the past. Cheers Paul
  14. Hi Danny It was the same for me, when i saw Rodger Moore drive out of the sea and up the beach in that gorgeous white S1 i was hooked. It also took me nearly 30 years to realise my dream, and this was the first time i had ever seen an Esprit in the flesh My mate with his hands in his pockets is also a Lotus man and now owns an Elan 2+2 in commemorative black and gold with a big valve engine which has been passed on from his dad, and was the first Lotus i ever drove . And here's another roppy picture from the day
