Tim Engel has uploaded a very comprehensive file to Facebook.

What is the name of the Facebook group please.

Actually this detail is very interesting to me as I rebuild the engine . May I ask someone who can see it to download and send it to me.

Thank you
David

Go Here:
https://tinyurl.com/mryxsnhk
to download a copy of '9XX Engine Rebuild Data, 4-Cyl - Master.xlsx'

Note that it's an Microsoft Excel.xlsx 'Workbook' containing multiple 'Worksheets'. Click on the tabs across the bottom of the Workbook to open any Worksheet. "Engine Rebuild Data" is my notebook for me... my scrapbook. I didn't write it to make sense to anyone else, but I do tend to be rather methodical. But if it doesn't make sense to you, there is no translation available. It is what it is.

FYI, regardless of what you may think of Facebook in general (I'm NOT a big fan), the various private groups each include a "Files" feature. It can be turned on or off by the Group's Admins, but most of the Lotus related groups have it 'On'. It's easy to upload files there... as difficult as it is to post images or files here, it's a piece of cake there. The problem is that the files are listed in the order entered rather than in alphabetical order. You just have to scroll down until you find something interesting, then download a copy. Even if you never post a message, joining a group will give you access to the 'Files' library.

Strangers do not have access. You must 1) apply for membership and 2) be approved before you can access 'Files'. The groups are run by volunteer Admins who are not 'full time'. You may have to wait for a while before an Admin notices your requiest to join and approves it. Just opening the page does not get you immediate access to the 'Files' section.

Not to irritate any border wars, but note that there are separate groups for "The Lotus Grand Tourers", "Lotus Elite/Eclat/Excel owners", and "Lotus Excel"... all with 'Files' sections.

Regards,
Tim Engel
