  6. Hi would anyone know from what car these Lucas Dash light dimmers were sourced by lotus for a 1983 turbo? They are an all metal switch with 78545a0582 stamped on them. Pezzer
  7. hi all , just kicking back with a beer thinking finally all electrics are working properly , when Lotus karma kicked in. Smoke arising from the dash binnacle, quicly cutting all power to the car and pulling the dash apart, like a F1 pit crew, I noticed that the left side dash dimmer was super hot. Checking that it was as the right side, I have come to the conclusion that a new one is needed, so the question is where should I LOOK? Pezzer

  17. Hi everyone could someone help with the location of the fuel sender on a 1983 Turbo Guigario? I dont want to be pulling off parts that do not need to be removed. Perry
  18. Hi guys, can anyone help with regard the rear fog lights. I have no power to the switch where is it energised from. on the switch plug there is :1 Blue/Red which I believe is the feed to the lights, 1 Red/Yellow which I guess is the main feed to the switch as it loops to the switch lamp, and finally a Black which is the earth for the switch lamp. Whilst I am here the wiring on the back of the fuel sender : 1 live light green wire to one contact , 1 green/black to the second terminal, is this correct as my tank level is not indicated. Many Thanks Perry
  19. Hi is anyone able to tell me the best source for the switches in the dash of my S3, trying to find alternative parts listing for these is proving very difficult. Thanks Perry
  20. Definitely no spark on 3rd cylinder. Where on the carby is the idle jet ?
  21. Hi, I have a firing problem on my Guigario turbo, and have gone through these steps to no avail. Replaced leads/ replaced coil/ Replaced plugs and fuel. The engine will only run on 3 cylinders with the third cylinder back from the cam wheel refusing to fire. I have also noticed that if I move the cover containing coil and lumention module the engine cuts out, I have removed and repressed on the coil ht lead to the dizzy, made no difference checked the plug on the shrouded module lead no difference. If it is only firing on 3 could this be the Dizzy cap?
  22. Could anyone please tell me what the original coil fitted to a 1983 Guigario Esprit Turbo would be and what are the replacement options. I do not want to replace the whole system. Thanks.
