Advice needed

Recommended Posts

Got to play with the new toy tonight, nice access to all parts of the car. They say ignorance is bliss, I thought I only had problems with my vac pump, but all is not well.

After reading an exhaust thread on this forum I thought I would check mine- F, S, and other expletives

1. Exhaust cracked

2. Rear tyre on nearside wearing more than 1mm different to other side

3. Gearbox oil leak

4. Engine front crank leak

5. Hoses at front end leaking

6. Lots of oil under the turbo

s...t, looks like lots of work.

Will be asking some questions ref how long can u leave the cracked exhaust.

Hi Folks,

I was wondering if i could use the 1350 kg ? :secret:

The Esprit is lighter than 1350kg but longer wheelbase by 8mm, so I sent an e-mail to LevoArtis - perhaps they could do a

custom version with longer up ramps for ground clearance for Esprits??

it looks nice but didn't you ever think of building a ditch

i've got one and it allows me to do all the work from underneath (standing !)

if you do the digging yourself it won't cost you more than the ramp


if you don't need it you can close it.

you don't have to go up and down the ramp everytime you want to use your car (i recon it's bolted on the floor)

i do like the ramp though


researche is something i do when i don't know what the hell i'm doing
