Gas Lifters 84 Esprit Turbo.


Recommended Posts

I don't know why but since owning my Esprit over the last ten years, I seem to replace the gas lifters on the rear engine cover every three years, but the last year of each three without any lift at all.

I am now on my third set and even when I open the catch, I have to lift the back using the louvres as there is no room to get my fingers in and then I have fashioned a prop to hold it open when raised.

Looking at the ones that I have used in the past they appear to be 250 or 300 nm. Is this too low?

Apart from ordering expensive ones from Lotus, surely there is a make that lasts longer than my Gabriel ones that will do a maximum of 18 months to 2 years.

I bought 2 from SJS in 2013 - still going strong. Only the second set on the car. They are £5 each cheaper now than they were 5 years ago.
