  1. Hi, from memory there should be a spring clip that goes over the otter switch and flange,
  2. Hi, these handles can be repaired by carefully drilling out the plastic where the thread is and bonding in a rivnut insert
  3. Yet another government burden on small business owners. The people who come up with these schemes should try living in the real world. By the time you have tried to comply with all the red tape you have no time left to carry out you actual work. They assume that every business has a department to deal with their new ideas. Sorry I'm starting to rant, I'll get back to work
  4. Hi Peter, I have seen fuse holders where the part that holds the fuse has loosened where it is riveted through the Bakalite to the terminals where the wires attach, I would be checking this as it could be causing the resistance that is causing the holder to get hot. You could try disconnecting the wires at the rear and fitting a blade fuse behind as a test to see if you get the same symptoms. regards Dan
  5. Looks to me as if you remove the gear knob, then remove part 29 I can't tell from the picture whether it unscrews or pull out then just pull off the reverse tube.
  6. Hi John, the gearstick is a funny arangement it pushes on in the bottom of the chrome part is a rubber bush keywayed washer and spring clip, here are some pictures, yours won't have the split pin that is something I have added. hope this helps dan
  7. Hi John, I have both of those parts that are now spare as I don't use them on the race car, they are yours for beer money and postage, make an offer. They were working when removed regards Dan
  8. Hi, with regard to the bolts that hold the bonnet on they probably have nyloc nuts on the inside, you would have to access them by removing the headlights and going through the headlight pod, having had the bolts shake out without nyloc nuts on whilst travelling up the motorway resulting in the bonnet ejecting from the car I would not rely on just threading into the bobbin although it sounds like yours have been drilled out or stripped. Hope this helps regards Dan

    2-Eleven Hemel

    2-Eleven by Bury Road roundabout in Hemel Hempstead at about 2.30 this afternoon, looked realy cool
  10. I have to say if I came across that I would be going in the opposite direction, someone else could box it up! I always laugh at my labourers when they flap around when a wasp flys past but am getting fed up of getting stung for my bravado, not a game I want to play with snakes
  11. Hi, there is some info here including photos. From memory Gary Kemp talks about restrictor hole size being 2mm to 2.5mm I think I restricted my oil way to just under 2.5 mm on the race car but have only run the engine a few times and not in anger as it needs to go to Northampton Motorsport to be remapped. hope this helps regards Dan
  12. Feeling rather dejected, went on holiday the day of registration for tickets, was nice, but 12 days of no Internet access. Was hoping to get tickets on return to bring the Eclat back home. This event sounds like it's getting better and better, ho hum! Have a great day and hope it goes above and beyond expectations. I'll look forward to the pics All the best Dan
  13. Why wait a few hours, the sooner the better
  14. As the title says, Blue Evora 400 travelling over Ivinghoe Beacon this morning around 8am unfortunatly due to traffic I could not hear him use the loud pedal properly
  15. Ha! With any luck they will launch it off the edge. With the original i gather that this was quite likely until they added the rear flick to the boot.
  16. I presume you have put fresh fuel in John, but it certainly sounds like a fuel issue if it fires and runs on easystart. Was the tank drained? regards Dan
  17. I was having trouble trying to get the correct house insurance for my house while I carry out selfbuild work on it, I was put in contact with who were able to put me in contact with a specialist broker, the resultant insurance is what I was after at a price that was hardly any dearer than if I was not carrying out the work. Biba are British insurance brokers association and can be contacted on 03709501790 regards Dan
  18. Hi John, I think you might have to release the slave cylinder retaining clips from behind the back plate, this would allow you to jiggle it away from the hand brake lever from memory, I seem to recal this was a pita! regards Dan
  19. Nice to see two Lotus at the Priory Gardens car show in Dunstable, didn't speak to the owners as I was only there for a short time due to other commitments. Also stopped and watched the truck convoy come through in aid of Help for Heroes. Some of the Skip and grab lorries look like they have never been near a building site.
  20. I always think of it as the "isopon cup"
  21. Is he now an ex window cleaner? Or has he been re educated!
