Elan 5 speed conversion parts

PostPost by: l10tus » Tue Oct 13, 2015 2:48 pm

Anyone know if the 5 speed release bearing carrier is the same as the Elite item used on the same gearbox ?

Or alternatively, (as a long shot!) where the original / copies can be obtained - has anyone recently sourced a supplier ?

Thanks,

Phil.

I just obtained the disk, release bearing and bearing carrier from SJ Sportscars on your side of the pond.

Greg,

Thanks, I give them a shout.

Q: "Is the carrier the same as the one used on the Elite" ( which used the same gearbox) ?? - any ideas ?

I'm not sure. I have an Eclat box and the carrier fits the tube but not sure how the fork works for the Elite/Eclat boxes.
