Speedo Drive 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo Non Chargecooler


Recommended Posts

I have discovered that my speedo drive has broken on the cable closest to my gauges. The cable that runs toward the engine bay is looking fairly hammered as well. Has anyone ever found a cross reference part number for this speedo drive cable system? Or am i better offer forking over the $165. to SJ Sportscars and calling it a day?

Always appreciate other Owners tips, Thank you for listening,

I don't know about the speedometer coupler end (if that is what the first picture is)

 

But I DO know that there were two different cable configurations.  The first is a one-piece core (that goes from the trans all the way to the speedometer instrument). The other variation was a two piece drive.

 

If you feel that the core is knackered (the square 'drive' end is rounded off), you can often obtain just the core by itself. See if there are any speedometer repair shops near you...

 

See if any of these sellers can help (look in 'also viewed)

I still have the cable from my Esprit, from when I fitted an electronic speedo. Can check condition and shipping if you want.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.
