2.2 HC listed on Aberdeen craigslist.

Recommended Posts

Noticed this engine listed again on Aberdeen craiglist. Scouring for a new engine for my Eclat. This one was posted last year and I'd assumed sold. Popped up again łast week. When I started to dig a little the owner got tetchy. I'm in Canada and had heard of the scam running last year. Anyone else checked out the listing. Cheers. Paul

Post details and I can look at it for you.

If it's a scam or not, I can view it when in town.

i google Aberdeen craigslist and in the search window type lotus  lots of big valve motors listed. This particular engine comes and goes, as soon as I ask questions on detail he gets very adgitated.  Assuming it's a scam  if u can pop and check it out I will pay full price.  Assuming u don't buy it  lol  





Lotus Excel SE 2.2L HC engine, also used in the late naturally aspirated Esprits. This engine has been rebuilt with many new parts - liners, pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, lightweight steel cam followers, oversize stainless steel valves, uprated rod bolts and reprofiled camshafts. This specification typically produces around 220hp. The carburettors have been fully stripped, ultrasonicaly cleaned and rebuild with new gaskets, bearings and diaphagms. The flywheel is a steel item from the Esprit and has been bead blasted and reground. The engine has been chemically cleaned and fitted with all new hoses, plated nuts and bolts. The cam covers have been powder coated and refaced. This is an HC engine and therefore has the usual HC refinements - HTD pullies, manual tensioner, large port head, power jet (tri jet) carbs, late type cam carriers, forged pistons etc.
