Cam Cover Query


Roger 912

Recommended Posts

On my 84 Esprit Turbo, the cam cover on the top bank appears to be fitted incorrectly. Surely all the Lotus names should be in the same plane.

Unfortunately it would seem that it cannot be turned around as the oil filler would foul the plenum.

Is this the case with all Turbo engines of is there something wrong with my installation.

Intake side cover is fine. Exhaust side cover seems the wrong way around. On my 84 turbo both lotus names read from the front of the car to the back.

That's my take as well.

Lower cover is on backwards.

A bit bizarre that someone would start putting it on, notice it was on backwards and keep on going anyway?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

The the crap I have fixed on my Turbo by the dumbasses that owned it before me, I'm surprised it has 2 cam covers at all!!
