PostPost by: geni » Fri May 20, 2022 6:34 am

I'm looking for a tachometer (missing) for my Elan S3 the one with those 2 lights at the bottom right and left
What can you offer me? even if it requires a refurbishment!
Thanks for your help

I would have a word with
https://www.smiths-instruments.co.uk/lotus/elan
Not sure if they can do the S3 variant, but the quality is excellent and just quicker than a refurb.

Geni,
I have used Speedy Cables to refurbish a gauge in the past and they did a good job, if somewhat expensive. I see they also sell replica gauges. I’ve not searched their list for your tachometer, but they may be worth contacting.

Gérard,

the serial number for speedos is the same for elans S1, S2, S3 : Smith SN6136
then for S4 it became Smith SN6207
The most obvious difference is the font used on the face between them
regarding the gearing, this may be indicated in very small characters below the center, in terms of TPM (turn per mile) or TPK (turn per kilometer), but that may not be much of your concern if you intend to get it refurbished and calibrated.
ps: these informations and more are from the forum , e.g. see https://lotuselan.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=22546

good luck !

indeed, sorry for the confusion, you wrote tacho then I read speedo as I found them a lot harder to source, esp. in kph... the same face font change would apply between S1/S2/S3 and later models though (then there are the pos. earth and neg earth versions, I suppose you'd rather get a neg earth model). Tachos should not be that hard to find, if need be with a bit of patience... good luck !
