Lotus Elan

TC Tall Block Runner

PostPost by: lotus66 » Tue Jan 06, 2015 8:23 pm

For Sale: Tall 711 block stroker Running TC with Stromberg head built by Dave Bean. I pulled it out of the Elan I'm currently restoring in favor of a stock TC. Compression is between 195-200. It is a very strong, smooth running motor with excellent compression. The carbs were rebuilt by Joe Curto a have almost zero miles. With little work, definitely a tune, it should be ready to go.I would have loved to have driven it around, but the rest of the car wasn't up to it. I do not know when Bean stopped building customer engines, but this may have been the last. It is at least 12 years old because that is how long the PO had the car. The motor had just been done at the time of his purchase. He planned to autoX the car, never did and used it little for the majority of his ownership. Not at all for the past 4-5 years. But he was a knowledgeable Lotus guy and stored everything properly. The motor started right up when I got it home, after a little coaxing and ran well. Asking $6200 Jim 240-626-9032 in Maryland

Hi Jim,

Tried to PM you but didn't work.

Could you email me at : [email protected]. I'm interested;

Interested in the motor. Could you supply me with a link for the video and the compression and leak down numbers please. Does the $6200 include the carbs? Any photos and perhaps a build sheet?

Thanks
