Starter motor

Recommended Posts

As part of the mini-refurb of ancillaries whilst the engine is out, I decided to take the starter motor and alternator for rebuild. Just called to see if they are done, which they are, but the guy told me the started motor looked like it had been laying in a pond. I'm not entirely sure how that has happened, given the rest of the car is in pretty good nick underneath.


But I wondered if the shonky rear deck louvre & engine cover arrangement that appears to have been specifically designed to allow rainwater all over the top of the engine, has somehow contributed to the effect. Or maybe it's an additional Lotus cooling method, though.


Who knows?
