Lotus Elan

Small odds and ends - at "buy me a pint prices"

PostPost by: Bruce Crowthorne » Mon Jun 20, 2022 6:15 pm

Sadly I have just sold my S4 Elan and of course I had lots of bits left over. I gave the new owner the pick of the bits, but there are some bits left.

Here is the list (see the photo as well) ...
New oil filter
Control box for dynamo (pattern part)
Silencer - stainless back box, packed to get the noise level down to "Goodwood level"!
Oil and temperature gauge - complete but needs a rebuild
2 pairs of knock on wheel spinners - chrome is not good
Disc backing plates - pair
Servo - rough! WILL need a rebuild, but I think it is the type that can be mounted in the Elan nose
Back light - 1 gasket, 1 bulb holding plate and 3 lenses
pair of rear springs
Clutch hydraulic hose (red plastic)
Hoses - 2 top hoses, 2 bottom hoses
Track rod end (1)
Door mirror - chrome, with mounting plinth and gasket - real 70s style
Vent hoses - 4
Expansion bottle holder plus damaged expansion bottle
Diff "stays" - 2
Distibutor - 23D4 / 41189D type - so suit SE / Sprint - rough so needs refurb

The items are located near Havant in Hampshire.
I DO NOT WANT TO GET INTO SHIPPING !!! So assume it is collection preferred!

Prices are at "buy me a pint" level - I want the parts to go to someone who will hopefully make use of them (or pass them on to someone who will) - my aim isn't profit.

Drop me a DM
Regards
Bruce

Hello,
I live in France and will be at the Le Mans Classic,
So would it be possible to find someone you know to bring back the brake servo purchase? If it is possible, that would be my wish
Thank you for sharing the effort

Hi,
I'm in Fareham and would be interested in the nearside rear lens... I'm also going to Lemans Classic next week so can act as courier if needed. Let me know if I can be of assistance!

Hi Joeman, can I suggest that you take all of the rear light "bits" as I am getting close to putting them in the tip - and I REALLY don't want to do that. You will be welcome to take any other parts that may be useful!

Maybe you could also take the servo to "geni" and meet him at LeMans Classic?

I am in Woodmancote - PO10 8RD, so maybe you could do a detour on the way to the ferry (I am assuming you are sailing from Portsmouth?) and collect the bits you fancy?

When are you sailing and when do you think you would drop by?
Thanks and regards
Bruce

Cheers Bruce, for some reason the pm’s aren’t working for me… I have one stick in the outbox (ooh-er!).
If you can send me your number I’ll arrange to pick up when convenient.
What’s your drink of choice?

It is normal for messages to stay in your outbox until read by the recipient. That way you know that it has been opened.

Hi JoeMan,

I have the servo that Geni is wanting and I see you are going to Lemans, he has emailed me asking if you can take it?
I have sent you a Pm explaining the situation, although I now see you are having a problem receiving them,
if so you can get me at

Hi Bruce.

I also sent you a pm re the servo - I could swing by and pick it up if its not already allocated to someone else.

Cheers,

Hi Rod, the servo has been requested by "geni" in France and we may have a long shot of getting it to him.
On the other hand if you can "swing by" maybe you can collect it - but let me hear back from JoeMan first!

However, you location says "Canada" - so where are you really?
Regards
Bruce
