Re: Air Horn faults.

I've had this previously, it was simply insufficient pressure to sound the horns. Sorted by copious amounts of gt85 into the compressor and run it for a bit with pipes removed.

Thanks, didn't want to pay Lotus tax on a common part
Got another issue now as snapped one of the manifold to downpipe studs. May be an excuse to get a performance version.

Sunday the studs went in, then the engine/gearbox went back into the car, with the assistance of wife and both children! Good fun trying to line up three gearbox mo...

Re: Ghostly goings on!

Re: Elite : Kaizen, those small manufacture changes.

My 86MY excel had the longer legs fitted in the passenger side, I have not looked at the drivers side so don't know if it has been replaced at some point. All points were bolted to the door beam apart from the front which had rusted off.

Re: Window Frames

Are there any of these available? I followed the ebay link but nothing was on there.
Had a couple of rust spots on the passenger side, thought I would have a look during the lockdown, turns out they had been badly repaired previously and now have a swiss cheese frame!

Re: How far should the drivers door open

Mine is the other way around. Must depend on what day of the week it was built.

Re: Tacho peculiarities

Hi,

Re: Airbox trunking

I have this missing on mine and have been looking for pictures of what the open end looks like / where it sits. Can someone post some pictures that will help? Thanks.
