Lotus Elan

Diff rebuild ? Where to go

PostPost by: Concrete-crusher » Wed Sep 14, 2016 5:10 pm

Hi , I have removed the diff which much to my surprise came out quite easily from the original lotus chassis.

The fluid level is about half what it should be and the general area around the rear is very oily so I think it would be worth sending of for a rebuild even if it's just to stop fluid loss etc.

My question is can anybody recommend where to take it , ideally in Hampshire or West Midlands.

Thanks Steve

Send it to Al (promotor) ....he's done a couple for me and also a LS for a friend of mine.

Or these guys just outside Burton on Trent:

Paul is a top bloke and knows his Lotus'. Owen, his Uncle who is his diff man worked on my 7 - back in the 1960's, so you could say they have a reasonable amount of experience!
No affiliation other than happy customer.

Hi,
In the West Midlands you could take it to 3jdriveline.com in Kenilworth - they used to be Tran-X before it was sold to Quaife
