Technical & mechanical help pages
THE FIRST THING TO SAY ABOUT THESE PAGES IS THAT THEY ARE WRITTEN BY AN
AMATEUR. They are also written by someone who has the mental age of 3 - and you
wouldn't ask a three year old how to fix your car now would you ? (Come to
think of it, the Lotus IS really only a Meccano set.....)
Anyway, the point is that no responsibility can be taken by me for
any information given in any of this website. It is an enthusiast's
site, not a professional's site - if you want reliable information that has
'comeback' on it GO TO A LOTUS DEALER !!!
Having said that, I do hope that my experiences, and those of others recounted
here, will help you with whatever Lotus problem you have. There is also a whole
wealth of experience on the Lotus internet list and the
4 seaters list -
friendly guys who really know their onions (and their Lotuses).
So - on to the interesting bit....
This is just hard facts and fixes here (and a page on what to check for if
you're thinking of buying a Lotus). If you click on any links, they will take
you to pages on the site that are more descriptive of my experiences on my own
restoration. (You'll be able to come back though).
Yes, O.K., I've read all this page and I promise not to
sue you if you advise me to do something like use grinding paste instead of oil
in the engine. Now take me to the pages please.... (By
clicking here you state you have read, understood, agree with and accept the
contents and spirit of this page)
By clicking this page you
state that you either
1) can't read or
2) don't trust me or
3) were looking to sue me but now can't or
4) have lost interest and would prefer to get a beer out of the fridge
