  1. $100 per set of 4, including all hardware and shipping in the US only. Note that these are specifically for US-specification Esprits only, designed to fit the 5.75" headlight mounting bases. https://www.jwspeaker.com/products/led-headlights-model-8630-evolution/ https://www.amazon.com/JW-Speaker-8630-5-75-Headlight/dp/B015ZBZMOM/
  2. I used genuine (and very expensive) DOT-legal LED lamp assemblies from JW Speaker, made here in the USA.
  3. Nice write-up! If there's enough interest, I could be convinced to make another run of these.
  4. Here's my solution to the engine support issue. Inspired by a tool made by Stan, a former Lotus/Lambo tech. Adjustable up and down, it makes transaxle installation much easier. There is a large pad on a swivel on the other end of the centre threaded adjuster that supports the sump.
  5. A missing resistor module in the red socket will most assuredly cause a code 26, so you might as well start there.
  6. I can provide a laptop cable and USB adapter, PM me for details, or visit my website at http://home.earthlink.net/~turboesprit2/bitsforsale.html.
  7. Inspired by Craig's vacuum pump delete idler shown in his post above (Htown), I designed and had fabricated a similar adjustment plate that uses the existing vacuum pump bracket. Like his, it is designed to use the A/C tensioner pulley, but can alternatively use an off-the shelf idler assembly from a Ford (with the substitution of a different spacer and bolt). Tension adjustment is performed exactly as it is with the factory pump installed, except one can now easily access the top pivot bolt! If anyone else wants to do this I did have a few extras made, PM me for details.
  8. Not the model builder's fault. Monogram re-purposed their 1988 Esprit model kit to create the Sport 300, obviously they fell short.

  10. The hub is not pinned to the wheel, it is welded on, and fairly substantially so. That said, you can carve it up, as I did. Prepare to spend the better part of an afternoon sawing and grinding to get it free and round. What you can't see in my pictures are the two substantial rods making up the spokes that are welded to the hub. Note that I threaded the two holes for alignment purposes, they are not threaded from the factory. Then you have to weld it to a custom made adapter, which is drilled for both Momo/Sparco and Nardi bolt patterns. I have extras for sale, PM me for details.
  11. Hi Paul, You should see about joining Lotus Corps, the Chicago area Lotus club. We are having our annual tune-up clinic next month, and I'm sure we could give you a hand with this task. Also, I believe one of our club members has a stock V8 muffler he would love to get rid of, if you are still in need. http://www.lotuscorps.org/index.php
  12. Did you try just using the o-ring that came with it?
