Re: Fuel pipe, tank to pump.

Hello Pete. My line goes, tank>pump>filter>flowlock>carbs. I think your lower pipe is filter>flowlock, but shorter than mine, (behave). The top one looks to have filter fittings, but doesn't look like the one going into my filter. I don't think gravity would push fuel to the carbs if I fed it into t...

Re: Fuel pipe, tank to pump.

Hello Pete, I've drained the tank, and need to run a pipe from a small (garden mower) tank to the pump to allow periodic warming up of the engine.
So need a length of pipe with an olive and the screw fitting to the pump, Thanks for offer of help. Jeff.

New OZ Excel alloys

Have been in garage loft tidying up, pulled out and decided to sell the 4 wheels I bought from a Lotus parts sale years ago. Offered first here before trying the EBay. 2 are still boxed up, 2 were fitted with tyres but were never used, apart from rolling the car round my garage, still have the boxes...

Re: 83 Excel from from Finland

I had an early Excel with bad boot droop. I found the springs,(if that's what they're called), were of narrow diameter, and were replaced by similar but thicker diameter ones, I believe when the boot had a spoiler fitted, hence heavier. I found on EBay a rough complete late boot for sale seriously c...

Re: Hazards & Indicators

The Lucas wing indicator is held on by two nuts on studs set into the unit, the drivers side nuts only getatable from the lotus position, and there is a panel with wiring connectors or fuses,(can't remember which), in the way behind the trim. The panel can be loosened(unbolted) but you'll still need...

Re: New Lotus Excel owner From Italy

In that episode of wheeler/dealers, they bought a pair of elan driveshafts from what was Kelvedon Motors, the sales lady was Pat Thomas's wife. I haven't been there for years, but heard Pat had sold his garage, and was concentrating on parts sales from his nearby home. I don't even know if he still ...

Re: New Lotus logo

The evolution of the badges is almost as interesting as that of the cars. Early ones had paint rather than enamel, the black was supposed to have been as respect for Jim Clark passing,(but that's debaitable), the Wickens early badge had to have Chapmans initials reinstated to quell a near riot as th...
