A belt driven water pump and cams - fantastic.

Great looking car. Looks really well proportioned with those rims.

Really neat looking installation - love the Lotus cam cover, where did you get it?

L. O. T. U. S. letters for the boot lid, attached with epoxy adhesive, fillet radii around each letter with Devcon (aluminium filler) then some coats of paint, wiping the letters free each time. :wink:

Hmmmm... I think I've still got a set of old LOTUS letters in the garage somewhere - might be a costly job though as if I have the cam cover off anyway I might as well fit the 285 cams and vernier pulleys that I've been promising myself!

Why not, you can't take it with you when you go!
I had a Dunnell head, camshaft & vernier pulley job done since those pics were taken.
185 bhp, tons of torque, smooth idle at 1000 rpm & no holes all the way through the rev' range.
Very hairy in the wet though!

All the engine bits including the management system supplied by Paul Dunnell. He makes & sells his own bits. Top man, quality stuff & great back up.
Disclaimer:-Yes I know him but I paid the full price for everything I bought from him.
