Another 5 Spd question...

When did the synchro ring angles change, and can you mix and match them. Plus did the headsets undergo any changes?

thanks

Mark

Was speaking to the owner of a Sprint fitted with a 5 speed box, he told me that the bite point of the clutch fitted to his car had was very low and literally on the floor. He wasn't certain if this was a worn clutch. So can any other 5 speed users confirm this low bite point?

Also I need the pivot pin/bolt assembly and a spigot carrier that fits in the flywheel, anyone have these for sale? Alternatively and machinists on here who would be willing to make me the bush, will gladly pay obviously.

thanks

Hi Mark, I have a +2 130/5 (Bought Feb this year) and it also has a very low bite point. I've done the basic checks (bleeding/adjustment) and its still the same. Its going to need a deeper investigation as I suspect a worn fulcrum pin or worn/bent clutch fork. I'm going to live with it until the winter time, then I'll pull the gearbox out and take a look. Regards, Jonathan

Anybody know what these markings mean. These are on an Elite 5 speed box?
thanks

Can anyone confirm if the angled speedo drive for the four speed box will fit on a five speed Lotus box.

cheers
