PostPost by: Mark B » Thu Sep 30, 2010 9:09 pm

I have an S4 Elan Lotus twin cam engine which I can't make use of, therefore it's for sale.
I bought it fitted to a rolling chassis as an incomplete car, I did see a video of it running before I bought it and it was apparently rebuilt by I believe qed around 9 -10 years ago, although it was used very little after the rebuild and most of the engine block paint etc is intact, the gaskets etc still look like new and I can see honing marks still present when looking down one of the sparkplug holes with a torch. The cam cover, sump, pulleys etc have all been repainted and it still looks very "fresh". It's been dry stored with oil in it and has been turned over by hand on a regular basis.

It comes with a pair of new stromberg carbs, new fuel pump, new magnacore plug leads, distributor, alternator/ mounts/belt etc, starter motor, new engine mounts, clutch, flywheel, stainless exhaust manifold, ht coil & ballast resistor, new S4 radiator with new pacet fan, coolant hoses, airbox, new heater valve etc basically everything to get it up and running. Updated with pics.

Looking for ?2500 for the lot. I'm in Cheshire, can deliver locally if required.

pm me or email [email protected] or tel 07778 586741

Thanks,
Mark.

Hi Bill,
As far as I'm aware it's in standard tune.

Regards,
Mark.

I'm very tempted though I won't have enough money accessible for a few weeks and I really should spend that on house improvement. 8)


I'm a Weber/Dellorto man though... So I would have to make a bulge in my bonnet or buy a new bonnet for the old lady. :? My engine was upgraded to about 130BHP.

If I buy, I will be able to come to Cheshire to pick it up in my Espace. :?:

Hi Bill,
No problem, if you want to have a chat about it give me a call. If you wanted to give me a deposit then I'll keep it for you for a month if it helps...

Cheers,
Mark.
