Homologation papers Type 36

PostPost by: HolmDenmark » Sat Feb 23, 2008 2:53 am

Does anybody have the homologation papers for a type 36 (S3 FHC). As far as I can see it's only the type 26 that are covered in the library. I would appreciate any help.
thanks

Christian, as far as I can see, the Elan is covered by the flw. FIA homologation papers : 127, 527 and 3027. Not sure if type 36 has a paper of its own, nor the 45. I suggest you contact the Danish Autosport Federation and discuss it with them...( www.dasu.dk )

I had FIA papers for my Series 3 Elan and the homplogation papers sent to me were the type 26 papers , there are no seperate papers for the type 36 Elan as far as I am aware.

Thanks Dag and Batfish. I can find FIA paper 127 but not 527 and 3027 on the Forum. Does someone have a scanned copy of them. I am trying to avoid buying the papers from DASU at this stage in time.

Here are the four elan homologation papers -- the fia numbers are at the start (e.g. #127). I don't know which one is the coupe, but it is not 3026.

Just looking through the Robinshaw and Ross Lotus Elan book for some other information and I noticed listed in detail the homologation nos 127 and 527. Amendments 4 through 11 of homologation 527 covered introduction of series 3 and 4 models body types 36 and type 45 between 66 and 68
