Hello,

since few weeks I'm a new Esprit french owner, a 1979 S2, but not in perfect condition. There are cracks and holes from the manifold to the silencer (!), and the previous owner didn't care coming his car in the garage and brokes the front on the bottom (as you see on the following pictures). As you can read me I was not the first for the english lesson at school, I have to buy parts but I don't know exactly parts names, so I want to order at SJ Sportcar with a little help (from my friends......)

Part A: 12 studs for headcylinder, is it this reference A912E2529F ??, and 12 nuts.

Part B: 3 studs with 3 nuts, reference ?

Part C: 2 pipes in 1 like a downpipe,name and reference ?

Part D: 3 bolts with 3 nuts reference ?

I'm near Bellac

We also have Mike Sekinger who's not too far away also. We will have to meet up. As an ex S2 owner I'd be interested to see your car.

matk, I will contact you by private message to meet you when I'm going at home. For my job I travel and I must to see AC DC in Paris, I hope you understand !

So today I subscribe to Club Esprit and download the official entire parts manual. (thank you for the link)

Part C is the downpipe, but at SJ sportcart I don't see downpipe for Serie 2, is it for sale ?

Part F is intermediate pipe, but like previous part I don't see intermediate pipe at SJ, is it "special pipe with no silencer Serie 2" ?

Part H in parts manual is " Cowl, radiator fan" , is it the same part that " Radiator fan cowling S2 & 3" at SJ Sportcar ?

When there aren't pictures on SJ website I'm lost !

A phone call to Steve at S&J always helps...(as long as he's not too stressed!)..best to phone through an order anyway.

Hi Jeremy

Look forward to it. The part "H" you refer to has twice been in previous factory sale lists. You should check out the latest sale list to see if it is available. IIRC it was something dirt cheap like

Here's some news since two months.

I went to thelotuscentre buy the exhaust manifold with different cast iron and shape. I took a used cowl radiator fan (little miracle !). After I went to SJ Sportcars and I took downpipe, rear silencer, clutch master and slave, clutch hose, brake hose, pad and repair kit for the 4 calipters and a lot of little parts. During my holidays ( one week) I wanted change the maximum parts. I did a plan: 2 days for the exhaust, 1 day for clutch, 2 days for brakes, 1 day for cambelt, oil and filters. Finally the exhaust manifold required 5 days :P . There's no space between chassis and engine ! And after there are nuts ! Actually all my exhaust is new and on the car, I wait the intermediate pipe from SJ.
