I've got the same problem. It happens frequently, usually I can see the images if I open them in a different tab, but not this time.

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

I've just moved all the attachments back to Amazon S3, they're rebuilding at the moment :thumbup:

Ahh. That'll explain the error message that I got that said the page does not exist.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Thanks!  The doc advises complete rest for the next several months, so cars are out, sorry.

From my kit fitting instructions - "1. The original Esprit brake pipes must be flared DIN pattern to suit the connector and formed to fit so that there is no undue radial strain on the proportioning valve fittings."

Seems to me that whoever fitted it failed to read, or follow, the instructions!

I get a funny feeling they might have been there from long ago, but can't imagine why they would have been joined at that location.  Unless it had a DM unit replacement in the past, and someone cut the pipes to get it out?  And agreed, bad flares.

Those flares were my handy work from a previous attempt with another master cylinder, and part of the reason that bit was left for you Sparky 😁. I didn't want to invest in a better tool for one use.

Is there a brown wire going to that oil switch? There's a switch under the right hand side of the dash and one in the centre console that I haven't worked out the purpose of.

I think one goes to a radar jammer, but I don't know which position is on and which is off! 😆 

Look after yourself. Don't kill yourself so I get my car a week earlier.

Is your seatbelt on? I want to try something

Aha!  The smoking gun.  🙂

The pressure switch has the wire I'd expect, and certainly shouldn't be linked to any dash switch.  Somebody's simply moved it away from the block for reasons I can't understand.  I'll take a look; maybe you have an ejector seat?

Afraid it's not in my nature to take it easy.  I'm just desperate to get it through a ticket.  If rain holds off, I'll bleed the fluid through this afternoon and run it around the block.  MoT currently booked for 1130 tomorrow.  Exciting!
