Lotus Elan

CAD drawing or any detailed drawing ofpedal box?

Marc,
I'm afraid I don't remember there being what I would call a pedal box on a regular Elan. A +2 is another matter though. On the Elan, there is just a shaft running between two body mounted pivots. One pedal rotates the shaft w/ the other two functions pivoting on the shaft. At one point, the shaft issupported by a brace that runs forward and provides a stiffener where the master cylinders mount through it and the body. Quite simple, really.

If you have nothing to go on at all, I do have the pedals still on the shaft out of my burnt S2 parts car, that I kept the complete chassis, driveline, VIN plate and title to someday build something special. Where are you located?

Sorry for the oversight - it's LHD, but worst case I think I could mirror RHD drawings if that all that is available.

Marc,

Is your car left or right hand drive?

Hi All,

I was considering having a new pedal box made up. Would anyone have a
drawing, they would share, that is detailed enough to be used for
fabrication?

Thanks in advance, -Marc

No body? I happen to know of someone who has a sprint body but with no
chassis/engine!

The body was removed, painted to a high standard, and put into storage
while the engine/chassis were shipped to another garage for repair.
Unfortunately, for personal reasons my friend did not contact the garage
for several months, during which time the garage went bust and the
receiver took away the engine etc!

If you are interested, and located in the uk, I could put you in touch.
The body is in Leeds.

David

David,

That sounds interesting but I am in Ohio, USA. Also, a few years ago, I hada earlier S4 bodyshell for a while but decided I didn't want to install a "square" winged body on the chassis, so I sold it off to someone restoring a S4 Elan. I'm not in any hurry to do anything w/ the chassis since it takes up little room as it is and I have a running S3 DHC and not enough garagespace.

Thanks for your offer,

Roger

Marc,

I was looking at the pedal assembly on my S4 today. It is pretty much as
Roger describes it: not a "box" so much as a couple of concentric shafts
and a brace. The assembly is out of the car, so photos are quite easy. I
could generate dimensions with only a little more work. My car is LHD.
Write to ***@***.*** you want photos (or more).
