  1. The carbs never had an auto choke, there should be a choke pull under the dash, the choke cable can be seen in your photo attaching behind the rear banjo. This diagram shows the hose attaching to the rear carb banjo bur that doesn't look like this '89 model which has two metal pipes (51 & 59 in the diagram) where you have one & a rubber hose.
  2. Does it have carburettors or fuel injection? FUEL COMPATIBILITY
  3. Why the Lotus Emira's four is more exciting than its V6
  4. Are you sure it's not the coil? Next time it happens grab hold of the coil, if it's too hot to hold replace it
  5. If I'm not very much mistaken isn't that an an Ebony Black S4 Esprit with the Magnolia leather interior?
  6. You'll stand a better chance of getting an answer if you post your question in the Elite forum
  7. Lotus 21 that set the standard for half a century
  8. Bootiful, paintwork & leather look new For me it was always the red & gold Guigiaro Turbo that was the best looker. Surprised at the black filler caps, thought they all came the same colour as the body?
  9. No, the motor should only need to repressurise after 10 to 15 (I think) pedal presses. There is a very long thread on here somewhere on diagnosing & fixing problems with the ABS unit, try the search facility. Also, I think the Espritmon diagnostic tool reports faults with the ABS unit
  10. Jensen Healey The transmission is a Citroën so probably came from an Esprit, I noticed the handbrake lever too, that's not standard as the Europa had a pretty useless flyoff one with the handle under the dash. The Citroën transmission would have come with its inboard discs
  11. That dash isn't original. Looks a really nice, professional job
