Esprit Miscellaneous?

Recommended Posts

I have acquired a job lot of parts of which I know some are Esprit or other.

If anyone can identify any of these parts I would be very grateful.

Okay, I have found out the second picture is a blow off valve.

Now is it universal or specific to the Esprit.

Thanks Scott. The discs are Wilwood and are 310mm in diameter.

Would they only be compatible with the Wilwood calipers

No Any caliper that will fit.. The disc thickness is just as important, along with the brackets required to fit... OH and don't forget it all has to fit inside the wheels you want to use, with sufficient clearance..

Pic 2 . does look like a blow off valve,  It will be universal as not standard or required in my opinion on an Esprit..

Pic 1.  Is a spool fan , after market,  looking at the blades fairly basic model .  These are mainly used to replace the rather dated             standard fans..

I cannot think of any pipe on the GM fuel injected 4 cylinder engine, or carb 4 cylinder engine, that looks to do the same job as the top image.

The second image, could be but I'd doubt that given that it looks quite long and there's not a great deal of long high pressure lines running the length of the car save for oil (bigger diameter) and clutch (smaller diameter) or brakes (rigid pipe).

Both items are aftermarket.

Thanks Dave,

If anyone think they could use the fan or discs let me know as I will be selling them.

The blue ones with the 90 degree bend might go at the engine bay end of the alloy pipes that runs through the chassis on an Esprit. Difficult to tell though and to be sure someone would need the internal diameter of the pipes and the lengths.

The pipes are about 50mm internal diameter. Overall the right angle ones are 130mm x 130mm and the others 200mm long.

 

Just put this wheel over on Ebay as well.

Or S4/S4s/V8/GT3 sill duct replacement pipes...

Thanks Alan that could be what they are.

Over on eBay if anyone is interested.

Sorted the wheel now on its way to Germany.

Fan and discs now sold as well.

Still looking for an AWI rear V8 monobloc.

I know it's an old thread, but I didn't see you get a definitive answer on this one.

It's an HKS SSQV vent to atmosphere blow off valve.

If it's genuine, then it's a very popular one. China do make some very convincing copies though as they fetch a good price.

It's a generic part as far as the unit is concerned, but you need the correct adapter pipe for each car.
