  1. James, Broke my US spec side mirrors twenty plus years ago. Did repair them. Believe there are photos posted at the S1S2S3 US site. Not sure if there is enough bandwidth available here to post all the photos here. Only use them at car shows. Daily mirrors are Vitaloni Turbo's. Lyn
  2. Max, Purchased a pair of Dunlop SP 9000 in 215/50-15 from Tire Rack several years ago. Monitor 15" tires on a regular basis for my S1. They are getting difficult to find in a performance tread. Good luck with your search. You might also contact Tony Krncevic on this forum. He's one of America's S! gurus. Lives in Cleveland now. Lyn
  3. Hi Folks, Saw this car on my way to Edison, NJ last Wednesday afternoon around 4 PM. West bound on Route 287 just west of Edison. Matt was it you? Lyn

    Trevor, Wasn't there some question as to whether or not the #82 car displayed at the Indy museum was actually Clark's race car? Something about the Tech sticker wasn't quite right. Saw the car several times at LOG a few years ago. They brought the car to a downtown mall for display Friday night. Regardless the car looks great. Dario's drive give us rail birds a first hand look at what the drivers of the era really had to deal with. Lyn
  5. Steve, The front tire on the car in question is the original equipment Dunlop SP 60, 205/60 - 14. Still have them on the front of my car. Only used for show and Winter storage. Mine still hold air after 35 years! The spare tire is perfect!!!!! Lyn
  6. All I can say is ............WOW!!!! My one and only horn drive loudspeakers were Altec 604E in Valencia cabinets. Around 1968 or 69. My first speakers were a pair of AR 4x in 1966 or 67. Followed by a second pair in parallel. Then off to twenty wonderful years of KLH Model Nine full range electrostatics. First one pair then a second was added. Ran out of room. Sold them and replaced with a pair of Rogers LS 3/5a! The lack of bottom end and my new career as the Bowers & Wilkins representative lead me to the 1991 Matrix 804 which I still have. Two different routes to aural nirvana.
  7. Wow Mike, haven't seen a S8R in over forty years! Remember the 075 ring radiator and the LE 15a woofer. Had a 15" passive radiator paired with the LE 15. Don't remember the midrange unit number. Getting old I guess. Sold quite a few of those when I first got into the "high end" audio business. Our store also sold Altec Voice of the Theater's. Surprised yours have lasted this long. The rubber woofer surrounds used to fail do to UV radiation. Started to crack if I remember correctly. Lyn
  8. Mark, I've used Audioquest audio and speaker cables for years. They are somewhat of an overkill as the 804's have a rather high crossover point. Midnight on the bass / midrange and Emerald on the tweeters. All audio cables are AQ Diamond. Remember, i worked in the industry for 38 years. Not rich by any means! Agree with Duncan. Take your amp with you for a final listen before purchasing. As the differences are small, keep your first "interview" as simple as possible. Compare all the speakers with the same source material and amplification. Most importantly, enjoy! Lyn
  9. Mark, As you must be mechanically handy (Lotus Owner), I'd advise the following; First, while the speakers are "operating", I'd lightly push in on the centers of the cones. If the speaker(s) suddenly work, the voile coils have been damaged. Next, remove the woofers from the cabinets. Take a "D" cell battery and touch the speaker leads to the battery. In all probability, the woofer voice coils have failed. Having owned B & W's for quite a while (custom built 1991 Matrix 804's), sold B & W at retail and represented B & W as a msnufacturers representative for five years, I'd visit your local dealer. You are obviously satisfied with your center channel. Go the distance and replace the Missions (represented them as well for a while). Good luck. Lyn
  10. It appears in the last photo you pulled the engine using a single strap; past the intake manifold, all the way under the oil pan and over the exhaust manifold? Is this standard practice on the front engine cars? Been trying to figure out how to pull my lump. Thanks for the photos and your assistance. Lyn
  11. Paul, Any assistance you can give me would be greatly appreciated!!!! Lyn
  12. Phil, In your photo essay, you have a three quarter front view of your 907. Is there any chance you can still take a photo of the engine front end on? Seem to be having difficulty threading the timing belt on mine. As I can not see the front of the engine from above, a photo may help me with the correct positioning. Thanks in advance. Lyn Incidentally, great job on your car!!!!!
  13. Before you do what John suggests, make sure the inertia switch is in its on position. With it off, the fuel pump does not run. Everything else will look good electically. There is also a fuel filter between the right hand tank and the pump. Might be clogged. Lyn
  14. Gunter and Wayne, Passed the information on to my friend Joe this morning. Haven't heard from him yet. Thanks for the assistance! Lyn
  15. Hi Guys, E-mailed your suggestions to my friend. He's taking his V8 to a local repair shop to have the codes downloaded as you suggested. The shop does a great deal of modern exotic car service in our area. I'll keep you informed. Also suggested he join this group. Don't mind passing the information along. Just easier for him to join! Thanks again for your assistance. Lyn
