Hi Matthias,

If these are for the Lotus Europa and not the Elan Sprint, then you might want to advertise them on the Europa forum ( although there are some folks here who also have Europas.)

good hint, thanks! I had actually bought this cams for an Elan engine, but they are from an Europa, so no need for it.

Also post the cams to the LotusEuropa mailing list on YahooGroups
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lotuseuro ... =290687133

And to the For Sale section of Jerry Johnson's very excellent Lotus Europa Central website
http://www.lotus-europa.com/
For Sale Section
http://www.lotus-europa.com/forsale.html

Both are based in North America, but international in reach.

The Europa Twin Cam's exhaust cam is the same as an Elan's, and the intake cam is longer to stick out the back of the engine and drive the alternator. Any competent machine shop could shorten the Europa intake cam to Elan length for you, then use it as you originally planned.

Thanks for your post Tim, as I wrote in the europa forum (and had learned now), I could use at least one of them... but I have sent my original cams to QED for a "360" reprofile. Also seems like they are about to be sold now.

regards
