Lotus Elan

Flange Dimensions

PostPost by: Ianashdown57 » Sun Feb 12, 2012 8:32 pm

Hi,
I'm wondering if anyone can provide me the dimensions of the bolt pattern for the Rotoflex Joint both inner and outer (if different) for the later model Elans and +2's (again if different). I have the dimensions form my own car S1, but know that they are differend to all the later cars.

The attached sketch should show the dimensions needed.

Many thanks,

Ian

Can you derive what you want from dimensions given here in this thread?

Hi Eric,

Sorry to reply in the public forum, but the message I received gave no return address.

I do all my CAD work in SolidWorks. This is just a sketch of a test plate I had made, but have a much bigger project ongoing. A new take on replacement Driveshafts for the Elan. There is a screen shot attached.

SolidWorks is a powerful CAD package but still quite easy and intuative to use.

PM or email me if you have any questions.

Ian
