1967 Elan S/E Transmission Ratios

PostPost by: "danmo" » Mon Sep 26, 2005 10:26 pm

Can anyone tell me what gear ratios would have come in a 1967 Elan S/E
transmission (assuming it is still the original transmission) and also
the rear end ratio?

Thanks,
Dan

final is 3.55 or 3.77 or maybe 3.9....

If you will contact the Lotus archivist with the unit number, they will
probably be able to tell you what diff ratio was originally installed and
what transmission (close, semi close etc) it came with. Then it is simple
to look up the trans gear ratios.
