Lotus Elan

+2 owners

PostPost by: rdssdi » Tue Feb 07, 2006 1:15 am

My Elan +2 restoration is nearing completion.

I am now plumbing the master cylinder and the new Lockheed brake boosters.

I would appreciate it if someone with a federal U.S. dual circuit brake
system equipped +2 would send me pictures of the master cylinder plumbing.

I am particularly interested in routing details of the plumbing from the
master cylinder to the pressure differential warning valve and from the
differential valve to the servos.

Also, which master cylinder outlet is used for the front and rear brake
circuits.

As the Lockheed boosters are larger than the OEM Girling units, I have
placed one booster on the inner fender and one booster in the nose. When completed
I will provide installation instructions and pictures to anyone interested.

Thanks

Bob,

My 72 Elan +2 brake servo plumping is configured as you describe.
One servo mounted on wheel well and one in the front nose. Believed the
original owner changed due to new alternator.

Will try to find my digital camera (think my kids have with them on
vacation).
Will post asap.

Regards,
Ty
