  1. is the fuel line fixed somehow insede the tunnel to avoid to get in contact with the prop shaft ? does anybody have pictures. i bought the car where the fuel line is crossing the exhaust under the chassis. when the car is hot it sputters and its stopping. maybe because of gas bubbles in the fuel line. br roman
  2. do i need the hole on the left side of the right rear seat to open the end of the breacable. o is it better to make a hole in the top side of the tunnel to access the inner screws? who has done this before? i do not exaclty know how i can get the cable out and where i do need access... br roman
  3. hi, i tried a few hours to change and set up the handbrake cable. no chance. don´t want to take out the diff. i am thinking of cutting a hole in the chassis tunnel form the upper side. does this cause any neagtive effect??? is there any other way?
  4. Hi on my 1980 S1 Eclat is a Fuel line (running outside under the frame) crossing the exhaust pipe with a distance of only 2-4 cm. dies this have any negative effect when the exhaust is hot? gas bubbles in the line ... melting hose.... does the fuel line originally run under the chassis or in the chassis? br roman
  5. thanks for fast replies, i think i will take off the head again and ground/cut the valves 1mm off. this will make the local engien shop as they told me it is the cheapest version. it only about 40 eur for all 8 valves. the valves at their end are not hardened they told me. the more expensive possibility is to renew the valve seats (as andretti wrote) but is is very expensive : about 540 eur for the work plus material. thanks for help
  6. i fittet new exhaust valves. non lotus ones. the seat is also regroundet. put the head on the block and the cAm carriers on and now..... the thinnest shim i need is a 0,75 mm one the thickest 1,15mm the problem is that the shims start at about 1,5mm so i have 8 ex valves with to small clearanve to fit standard shims. has anybody suggestions what to do easiest now? 1. buy thinnest lotus shims and ground them to 0,75mm and so on. 2. find shims from an other car make . vw golf for example. 3.take head off and take valves out again and cut them off 1mm 4. ground tappets inside 1mm 5. 1mm paper gasket on exhaust side cam carrier. 6. new valve guides in the head 7 new valves ( original lotus ones) did anybody have this problem already?
  7. thx it is the wrong one. my supplier sent me the wrong one.
  8. i got a new recon water pump for my 907 engine, but it looks different. 1. there is no thermostat switch on the new one 2. is comes out of the engine much wider so that the dirve belt is not in correct position. what happened? is this normal on recon water pumps? have i got the wrong one or do i have to modify the drivebelt wheel and the thermostat switch somehow? thx rom
  9. hi, during reassembling my engine i mentioned that there is play between the oil pump and the distributor. its about half of a teeth of the cambelt wheel. (~2mm) is this play normal and within the tolerance? couldn´t find the tolerance for that play in the manual. thx rom
  10. ive got an 907 engine spec 5 from an lotus eclat (probably) as my workshop manual says i need holes and grooves in all mein bearrubngs (lower and upper) the bearrings taht were in the car were completly different. lower : plane upper : hole & groove in the lower engien block part (crank holder) are no oil holes for the new bearings.... is this normal and ok? or do i have a "wrong" lower engine block part maybe from an lotus esprit turbo 910 engine ?
  11. i´m looking for an exploded view of the 907 engine or pix of an reassembling of the engine. the exploded view in the workshop manual does not show exacly what i´, looking for.
