Cam Cover

Recommended Posts

Have been looking at one of the first engine pics I took.

Is my top cam cover on the wrong way?


looking at other 907 engine photo's and they all appear to have oil filler at back of engine and "Lotus" the right way round.  Is it possible to put the cover on the wrong way round?

Yep, it's possible to fit them the wrong way 'round, had the same on my first Esprit. Not familiar with the 907, but I'd guess 'Lotus' would have to be the right side up o both covers. ;)

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

The breather underneath the cap shows to the wrong direction. I would guess, there will be a lot of mud... There has to be a tube to the airbox 

there was only one particular MY later on the Excel who had it this way... But not on the Elites and Elites Coupés :o like the sticker said on your left wing

Mine was also replaced the wrong way round by someone who did work on the car for the previous owner... I'm guessing that means that they probably didn't refer to the service manual to do any of the work. Apparently some of the work was on the head too. :cry:
